Even if you think you’ve never really listened to the Violent Femmes before, you probably have. They’re one of those bands whose classic punky songs, including 1981’s “Blister in the Sun,” “Add It Up,” and “Gone Daddy Gone” have had their fair share of radio play over the years and nestled themselves comfortably into the collective consciousness. Debuting their first album in 1981, and charting on Billboard for the first time in the 90’s, Violent Femmes are an American cult classic. Luckily, the  iconic post-punk group is still touring and sounding as tight as ever with new tracks true to their roots. Keep an eye out for their next release, “Hotel Last Resort,” out July 26th on [PIAS] records. The guys in the Violent Femmes stopped by Studio 1A for a live performance, complete with tracks from the new album and a live-audience sing-a-long that you can check out in the player below.

Briston Maroney 5.3.2019

Posted by on May 3, 2019

Knoxville native and Nashville transplant Briston Maroney sings with such contemplation, confidence, and ease that it’s almost surprising to find he’s only 21 years old. He has an impressive repertoire to boast as well, with a full length debut released in 2017, and an EP in November of last year. Maroney is set to release his second EP, Indiana, on Canvasback Music on May 17th. The album explores themes of Maroney’s upbringing, drawing inspiration from friends, family, and roots in Tennessee. Vulnerable and visceral, Maroney’s brand of DIY rock n roll is not to be missed. Catch an interview with Maroney himself and a sneak peak of songs from the new EP in the player below.

WURVE 04.18.19

Posted by on Apr 22, 2019

Austin’s own four-piece psych-pop outfit WURVE is making their debut with new record, “Memory Bleach,” out April 19th on Yippee Ki Yay Records & Burger Records. The band’s sound ranges from upbeat to darker tunes, always gravitating toward psychedelic and experimental sounds. The tracks from the new album are fast and hard-hitting progressions with scuzzy guitar tones, swells of reverb and warbly, echoing vocals influenced by the Jesus and Mary Chain and reminiscent of Spiritualized. The band’s sound packs a punch, and has earned them rapport among local psych-rock circles. Keep an eye out for WURVE shows around town, and tune into their Studio 1A session in the player below.

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.
