Israel Nash is a big fan of community. In addition to the several albums he’s made with his ever-evolving band, Nash has played with the Bright Light Social Hour and thrown an inclusive SXSW party at his Dripping Springs ranch the past few years. Lifted, Nash’s fifth album (out July 27), beams with this neighborly feeling, putting a Hill Country spin on psychedelic rock.

We’re pleased to have him back as our guest DJ, spinning an hour of music that’s currently obsessed him. That includes everything from old soul and George Harrison’s Wall of Sound to the music his Austin friends are making at the moment. Hear Israel Nash’s My KUTX on Saturday, July 21, 6 to 7 p.m. or anytime at the bottom of the page. Nash also plays Studio 1A on July 26 at 3 p.m. and the Scoot Inn on July 27.

Night Glitter’s two principals have really interesting musical resumes. LouLou Ghelichkhani sings with Thievery Corporation, and John Michael Schepf has played bass with Roky Erickson, Hayes Carll, and the Happen-Ins. As Night Glitter, the pair bring some dreaminess to the Austin scene with a debut EP called, unsurprisingly, Hangin’ On A Dream. We’re excited to have them guest DJ this week on My KUTX, digging deep into their shared influences. Those include everything from Austin psych-rock legends and Thievery collaborators to German electronic pioneers and even some weird country music thrown in for good measure. Hear Night Glitter’s My KUTX on Saturday, July 14, 6 to 7 p.m. or anytime at the bottom of the page. Night Glitter also plays Cheer Up Charlie’s on August 8.

For eighteen years, Stewart Vanderwilt has served as the director of KUT and KUTX, helping create an award-winning news team, our fancy new digs, and giving us music nerds our own spot on the radio dial to stretch our legs. But with Vanderwilt moving on to greener, more mountainous pastures, we’re turning the keys over to him one last time. This week on My KUTX, Vanderwilt takes a trip down memory lane, playing an hour of his all-time favorite live performances he caught in our Studio 1A over the years. Happy trails, Stewart!
