The Peterson Brothers: “Tell Me Everything” (Live in Studio 1A)

Posted by on Apr 18, 2017

As Glenn Peterson and his younger brother Alex approach milestone ages (21 and 18, respectively), one thing certainly hasn’t changed during the transformative period of their lives: a shared love of live blues musical performance. Already seasoned veterans of the Austin music scene, The Peterson Brothers have made a brag-worthy name for themselves in their young career, having opened for acts like B.B. King, Willie Nelson and Gary Clark Jr., performed alongside the legendary Buddy Guy, and gained notable attention from Bootsy Collins.

Joined by Chris Meed on drums, Glenn Jr. (guitar/lead vocals) and Alex (bass/vocals) have time and time again proven that the contagious kinetic energy of blues-soul can get even the most mild-mannered listener on their feet in the heat of the moment. Though you can always treat yourself to The Peterson Brothers at home via their self-titled full-length album or their live recordings, they’re best experienced in-person, where you really get to see their undeniable sense of showmanship. Matching outfits and never-drooping smiles keep the audience engaged in sets that alternate between classic blues standards and toe-tapping originals. “Tell Me Everything” highlights The Peterson Brothers’ show-stealing confidence and mastery of dynamic range in a five-and-a-half minute blues blowout.

 You can see The Peterson Brothers Thursday night at Old Settler’s Music Festival or most Mondays as part of their residency at the Continental Club.

Batty Jr.: “A Little For Later”

Song of the Day

Batty Jr.: “A Little For Later”

Posted by on Apr 11, 2017

This Austin-based four-piece features tired-eyed Texas troubadour Zeke Jarmon, Wild Child founding member Sadie Wolfe, as well as Taylor Turner and Jeff Olson, who together render an uncommon musical perspective of the day-to-day world around us. Whether its eons in the past, a minute into the future, or right in the spur of the moment, Batty Jr.’s lyrics take a slice of life and with their dreamy instrumental arrangements, re-serve it as their own idiosyncratic, observational and introspective dish.

Released this past February, Batty Jr.’s debut album From The Land Of Insofaras totes six songs all recorded live, back-to-back seamlessly – shedding any post-production studio magic in favor of unrepeatable mid-performance moments. The second track off From The Land Of Insofaras, “A Little For Later,” (featuring CAPYAC’s Delwin Campbell on drums) is initially a slow and despondent tune that elevates to a tranquil, harmonized chany…sure to make any indie-folk-rocker go batty for Batty Jr.

 You can listen to Batty Jr. here on KUTX.org and you can catch them on Thursday, April 13th at Swan Dive.

Coldcut x On-U Sound: “Vitals” (feat. Roots Manuva)

Song of the Day

Coldcut x On-U Sound: “Vitals” (feat. Roots Manuva)

Posted by on Apr 4, 2017

Not every collaboration needs its own supergroup name. Case in point: Coldcut & On-U Sound. Between On-U Sound Records founder/producer/remixer Adrian Sherwood and Coldcut’s Matt Black and Jon More exists a lifetime of music. While On-U Sound has permeated reggae, dub and electronic tones since 1979, Coldcut’s unique brand of electronic and hip-hop music has been heard in the production and remixes of acts like Blondie, INXS, Eurythmics, and Queen Latifah since their origins in the mid ’80s. United by a shared love of reggae-influenced electronic music, the three industry heavyweights are set to release a collaborative full-length, Outside The Echo Chamber.

The LP is stacked with legendary artists that Sherwood, Black and More have worked with in the past, like Lee “Scratch” Perry, Junior Reid, and Roots Manuva. Manuva is featured on Outside The Echo Chamber‘s introductory track “Vitals,” one of the album’s darkest reggae-infused offerings. In just under three minutes Manuva’s verses and choruses guide the listener through the ether of heavily-saturated dub effects that beg the question: why did it take them so long to team up?!

“Vitals” appears on Outside The Echo Chamber, out May 19.
