This Song: Cautious Clay On “B.O.B” by Outkast

Posted by on Apr 10, 2019

When Cautious Clay saw the video for Outkast’s “B.O.B” for the first time, the combination of the duo’s rapid fire rap style, techno influenced production and hyper-saturated psychedelic visuals blew his 7-year-old mind. On this episode, he tells us how that experience continues to have a profound impact on his own work, especially on his new project “Table of Context.” Plus, he explores how Outkast, along with his beat-boxing flute teacher,  taught him to approach creativity without boundaries.

 Cautious Clay just released a new EP called Table of Context

Otis The Destroyer 4.2.19

Posted by on Apr 3, 2019

Otis The Destroyer created a buzz in the Austin music scene with their fuzz-fueled 2017 debut, “Keep Bashing.” Now, the band is back with a scuzzy, hard-hitting EP of grunge-inspired indie rock. The new release, “Cool Evil,” is a departure from their debut LP, veering toward 90’s shoegaze with mellow, laidback vocals and squealing guitars. Celebrate the release of “Cool Evil” on April 12th with an album release show at Stubbs, or a free in-store performance at Waterloo Records on April 18th. Catch a sneak peak of Otis The Destroyer’s new EP with live tracks from their studio 1A session in the player below.

Arkansas native actor and musician Ben Dickey gained notoriety for his portrayal of Blaze Foley in 2018 biopic Blaze. Though the role earned Dickey a lot of positive buzz, this is not his first rodeo, with a debut LP released in 2016. Dickey’s debut, Sexy Birds and Salt Water Classics is to be followed by sophomore release A Glimmer On The Outskirts, out March 8th. With A Glimmer On The Outskirts, Dickey infuses folk and country inspired songs with a modern pop edge to create a sound all his own. The new album is released on SexHawkeBlack Records, an Austin-based offshoot of Dualtone founded by the minds behind Blaze, Charlie Sexton, Ethan Hawke and Blaze executive producer Louis Black. Find live recordings of the Studio 1A After Hours session in the player below, or catch Ben Dickey’s free in-store album release at Waterloo Records, Friday March 8th.

Houston-native roots rocker Hayes Carll combines down-home sensibility with tongue-in-cheek humor to craft his own unique brand of Americana. His latest release, What It Is, out February 15th on Dualtone Records, is a rich arrangement of strings, horns, and the witty singer-songwriter lyricism Carll is known for. In an ambitious celebration of the album’s release, Carll played four shows back-to-back in Austin and still found time to stop by Studio 1A for a KUTX live session. Hear the full session in the player below.
