KUTX Host Art Levy spills the beans on the BEST SONGS EVER! At least for this week.

Erika Wennerstrom – “Be Here To Love Me”

First up, new music from Austin’s Erika Wennerstrom. The Heartless Bastards singer/guitarist released her awesome solo debut last year, and she’s back with a new single that’s a tribute to one of her biggest influences: Austin icon Townes Van Zandt. Here’s Erika Wennerstrom, covering “Be Here To Love Me.”


Jamila Woods – “Zora”

Next up, music from Jamila Woods. The Chicago rapper and singer has a new album out called Legacy! Legacy!, and each song is named for and inspired by legendary artists of color. This one is called “Zora” for the African American writer Zora Neale Hurston. And you can see Jamila Woods in Austin on Tuesday, June 11 at the Barracuda.


Ty Segall – “Taste”

Finally, something new from California punk rocker Ty Segall. It’s called “Taste,” from his upcoming album First Taste—the joke being, this guy has put out about twenty records in ten years. But if this is indeed your first taste of Segall, he has a very specific sound: incredibly loud and gnarly, but also really catchy.

Density512 presents: Evan Lawson’s Orpheus

Posted by on Jun 6, 2019

In collaboration with prismatx ensemble Monteverdi. Lully. Telemann. Rameau. Gluck. Haydn. Offenbach. Stravinsky. Glass. The tragic love story of Orpheus and Eurydice has been celebrated by musicians for as long as we have had means to do so. But what about Orpheus’s affair with fellow argonaut, Caläis? In a preview of our upcoming prismatx series (creating music inspired by art), Density512 presents Evan Lawson’s Orpheus, a new opera inspired by this little-known love triangle and a reaction to the censorship of queer elements in Greek mythology.

Mary Gauthier is an unapologetically autobiographical songwriter. Her previous albums largely focus on her early struggles with drugs, alcohol, and homelessness. On her newest, Rifles & Rosary Beads, Gauthier turned that introspection outward for a series of songwriting retreats with American military veterans and their partners. She recently visited Studio 1A with frequent collaborator Jamie Harris before they hit the Cactus Cafe for a SOLD OUT show. Check it out below!
