Little Mazarn: “White Fang”

Posted by on Dec 15, 2017

Between her talents as a cellist, banjoist, bassist and vocalist, Austin’s Lindsey Verrill AKA Little Mazarn is a powerhouse of atmospheric folk songwriting. Since receiving her banjo at the tender age of fourteen, Verrill has been building up her instrumental and vocal skills alongside her repertoire and ever maturing world view. Tonight the fruits of Verrill’s labor can be experienced live at the release show for her self-titled debut EP, recorded and performed by her three-piece arrangement.

Little Mazarn stopped by Studio 1A earlier this week, so be sure to listen to that session as well as the second track of the studio album, “White Fang”, before heading to the release show tonight at Central Presbyterian Church – doors at 7:30pm!

Joe Ely: “Run Little Pony” (Live in Studio 1A)

Posted by on Dec 12, 2017

Longtime listeners of KUTX may be quick to recognize Joe Ely‘s name and affinity for well-woven narrative lyricism, perhaps from one of his many visits to Studio 1A over the years. Through Ely’s solo performances and appearances with The Flatlanders, he’s hardly a stranger at the Cactus Cafe, where he’ll be performing this Friday and Saturday, both featuring an opening set from Miles Zuniga (of Fastball). For a preview of Ely’s live demeanor, check out “Run Little Pony” – recorded on Ely’s most recent visit back in February – and if the audio isn’t enough for you, there’s a video to boot.

You can see Joe Ely Friday December 15th and Saturday December 16th at the Cactus Cafe and you can listen to him right here on KUTX.

P.T. Banks: “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day”

Posted by on Dec 11, 2017

Like it or not, the holiday season is here! And while you may not be ready for eggnog and tinsel, the well-meaning winter spirit is certainly alive in Austin’s P.T. Banks. The local three-piece has shined over the years under the direction of fronting vocalist and guitarist Paul Banks – who now is releasing something just in time for the holidays.

Derived lyrically from a Civil War-era Henry Wadsworth Longfellow poem, “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day” is a stripped down solo acoustic performance by Banks – one that was recorded years ago but is only now enjoying its release. Take a breather this Monday and soak in the yuletide vibes with a free download of “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day” by P.T. Banks right here on KUTX.org.
