Molly Burch 2.17.19

Posted by on Feb 20, 2017

Here at KUTX, we love Molly Burch. Chances are very good you’ve heard her music on the air, we just can’t get enough of her. And even though she’s a transplant, she fits the Austin scene very well. Her voice is kind of a throwback, it’s vintage. It reminds us of the golden years of central texas music, and the more of that we get, the better. Her most recent release Please be Mine eloquently and effortlessly blends country styles with a more updated indie feel. Molly graced us with her presence in Studio 1A recently, check out her session below!

Zeale 2.17.17

Posted by on Feb 20, 2017

Socially conscious rapper Zeale (pronounced “zee-lee”) is a perfect metaphor for the Austin music scene; he throws rock and electronic music in a blender and mixes in a solid foundation of east coast hip-hop to make something refreshing and revitalizing. Many things set him apart from other hip-hop artists, but the most glaring is his overwhelmingly positive message, a message that is especially welcome in these uncertain times. His newest release FRNZ & FNGS embodies that spirit and then some, Del the Funky Homosapien even makes a cameo. Zeale stopped by studio 1A to show us some of the tunes off of his new album, check it out below!

Jesca Hoop 2.16.17

Posted by on Feb 20, 2017

A song you’ve never heard comes on the radio. It kind of sounds like folk, but is it? It must be! Acoustic guitars, songs about lost love, nailed it. But wait, what’s this ambient reverb-driven chorus? And what’s up with all these wacky jazz chords? Why is it so wild but at the same time organic and familiar? WHAT IS HAPPENING TO ME?!?! Jesca Hoop is happening to you. Try not to enjoy it too much. Jesca Hoop’s story is just about as fascinating as her music is; born to Mormon parents, she left the religion when she was 16 and spent her youth off the grid “living under trees.” After a stint as a wilderness guide for wayward teens, she moved to LA to nanny Tom Waits’ kids. Tom and his wife Kathleen Brennan gave her space to work, and her career exploded from there. Jesca’s most recent album Memories are Now is like folk written by someone who loves Herbie Hancock and Stevie Ray Vaughan, but has an ear for the experimental in a big way. Jesca shook some brains at Studio 1A, check out her session below to have your brain shaken too!

Savoy Motel 2.14.17

Posted by on Feb 17, 2017

Nashville-based rock group Savoy Motel musit be some kind of rock music time machine, because they’re bringing sounds from the 70’s into the present and making them their own. Their funky, gritty, slightly psychedelic sound stands out among a sea of contenders. Formed in 2014 at the now defunct LHB Studios by producer/bassist Jeffrey Novak, vocalist/drum machine operator Jessica McFarland, guitarists Mimi Galbierz and Dillon Watson, Savoy Motel is making their mark on the contemporary rock scene. Check out their Studio 1A session below.

Tamarron 2.16.17

Posted by on Feb 17, 2017

Austin-based five-piece psych-rock Tamarron is one for the books. Their driving, effects-laden sound is making waves on the Austin music scene, and their new EP Lets Get Out is propelling them on a month long tour ending with a showcase at SXSW. Born out of a love for the fringes of classic rock and a lucky meeting on craigslist, Tamarron’s music is like a trip down memory lane, but into the future. Don’t ask me how that works or send me angry e-mails about how time travel works, just listen to Tamarron’s music and you’ll know what I mean. Tamarron stopped by Studio 1A to give us a preview of their new EP, check it out below!
