Jody Denberg shares the best songs ever…this week. 


Night Glitter-“Transparency”
Austin’s Night Glitter is essentially singer LouLou Ghelichkhani from Thievery Corporation and bassist John Michael Schepf, who just finished about a dozen gigs with Ben Dickey at SXSW. Together as Night Glitter, they’ve put out an EP, and their new single is “Transparency,” sung in French by Ghelichkhani.


Tom Petty- “For Real”
Tom Petty has been gone for a couple of years, but there’s been a couple of archival releases already. The first, American Treasure, was almost all previously-unreleased material. The new one, The Best Of Everything, has two previously-unreleased songs. Check out “For Real,” recorded in 2000–it almost sounds like Tom is talking to us from the great beyond.


Adia Victoria- “A Different Kind Of Love”

Recently, Tennessee-based poet and songwriter Adia Victoria visited KUTX’s Studio 1A. Her second album, Silences, is amazing, punctuated by the rocker “Different Kind Of Love.”

Portuguese artist Marta Pereira Da Costa stopped by Studio 1a on the eve of SXSW and with her Portuguese guitar. The Portuguese guitar is a double six-stringed, teardrop-shaped guitar used in Portuguese Fado music.  Da Costa is currently the only professional female Fado guitarist worldwide and the first to perform at SXSW. The Portuguese guitar creates the traditional Fado sound and is also used by Da Costa to create new rhythms and sounds. Her time in North America wrapped up March 16th but we are anxiously waiting on her return to our Studio. Until then, you can listen to the audio from her time at KUTX below.

Jaimee Harris is an American-folk star on the rise. Her edgy look takes her iconic Americana sound to a new level. Her new album, Red Rescue, came out in October and has received high praise for its’ epic instrumentation and relatable lyrics. While being influenced by great Americana musicians that came before her, Jaimee Harris is unapologetically herself. She stopped by Studio 1a right before hitting the stage at The Cactus Cafe.
