Quiet Company: “An Unholy Year”

Posted by on Aug 15, 2017

If you’re in-the-know about Austin music, chances are you know that Quiet Company is nothing like their namesake. Over the course of four full-lengths and ad-nauseum touring, this local five-piece has accrued 12 Austin Music Awards (including “Band of the Year” across a number of genres and years) as well as a strong national following and praise from critics worldwide.

2016 marked a year of kenopsia for the group, as fronting songwriter Taylor Muse took time off amidst a recent divorce and the ensuing experiences. With his deep-rooted bandmates recharged from an uncharacteristic lack of touring, and now joined by a new rhythm section, Muse and Quiet Company have transformed their pent-up energy and emotional baggage into their upcoming five-song album – Your Husband, The Ghost.

You can see Quiet Company on Saturday, August 19th at Barracuda for their album release show. You can also listen to “An Unholy Year” by Quiet Company right here on KUTX.

Ray Wylie Hubbard: “Tell The Devil…”

Song of the Day

Ray Wylie Hubbard: “Tell The Devil…”

Posted by on Aug 8, 2017

There’s new Ray Wylie Hubbard, y’all. Raised in Dallas and currently based in Wimberley, this Texas troubadour is back with his sixteenth studio album since his 1976 solo record debut.

Now at age 70, Hubbard is set to release the latest full-length, Tell the Devil I’m Gettin’ There as Fast as I Can. The eleven songs highlight Hubbard’s self-production that particularly shine on tracks with special guests like Patty Griffin and Bright Light Social Hour. The slow-burning title track features Eric Church and Lucinda Williams for a devilish vocal tour-de-force.

Tell The Devil I’m Gettin’ There As Fast As I Can comes out Friday, August 18th. You can pre-order the album now or listen to Ray Wylie Hubbard here on KUTX.org.

Transit Method [We Won’t Get Out of Here Alive] – 8:00pm @ Sidewinder

Hailing from Austin, TX, Transit Method is a heavy rock trio that is as aggressive as it is psychedelic.

Their upcoming full length “We Won’t Get Out Of Here Alive” is due out 8/18 on Brutal Panda Records. Join us a week prior for a hell of a celebration and get your hands on the album before it drops.
