Austin Music Experience: Best Austin Albums of 2014

Posted by on Dec 18, 2014

We’ve made our list and checked it twice–this week on the Austin Music Experience, we’re putting on our critical hats and taking a look back at the Austin albums that provided the soundtrack to 2014. And we’ve got some help from the music experts here at KUTX Austin. The DJs will dive deep into an eclectic mix of picks, ranging from jazz to electronic to Latin rock. You’ll hear familiar favorites like Spoon and Spanish Gold, plus a few Austin discoveries like Roger Sellers and Gina Chavez. Join us Sunday 6 p.m. on KUTX 98.9 and KUTX.org, or listen anytime in the player below!

Austin Music Experience: Our Favorite 2014 Interviews

Posted by on Dec 11, 2014

Our weekly show focuses on live music, but there are other stories that make up the Austin Music Experience. This year, we learned about an independent record label that helped put Austin on the musical map. A roots-rock legend’s experiment with computers. A quiet band that would influence Death Cab For Cutie and Blink-182. A soul man who’s had pretty much every job possible in the record industry.

This week on the show we’re taking a look back at some of our favorite interviews from the past year. Some of the characters might be familiar—Johnny Winter, Joe Ely, Fontella Bass, Ben Gibbard—but these stories hopefully shine a light on some lesser-known sides to the Austin Music Experience. Listen below!

Austin Music Experience: Ian McLagan, Joseph Arthur & More

This week on the Austin Music Experience, we remember rock-and-roll hall-of-famer and adopted Austinite Ian McLagan, who passed away on December 3 at age 69. His career is a treasure-trove—from coming up with the Small Faces and the Faces to working with Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones, and Bruce Springsteen—and he was also a really great guy to have around. We’ll listen back to an archival interview recorded this past summer, covering his final album United States and his extraordinary career. Joseph Arthur also joins us in Studio 1A for live music and a chat, and we’ve got new music from Abram Shook, the Good Music Club, and more. Listen below!

Austin Music Experience: Kat Edmonson, Live In Concert

Posted by on Nov 25, 2014

She’s been compared to Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald, but Kat Edmonson is her own artist. For over a decade, the former Austinite has brought jazz to a new generation. She’s collaborated with Lyle Lovett and breathes new life into old standards, but she’s also an accomplished songwriter, self-described as “vintage pop.” With the release of her third album, The Big Picture, Edmonson returned to Austin earlier this year for a homecoming gig, and we were there to capture it. This week on the Austin Music Experience, Kat Edmonson in concert, live from the historic soundstage of Austin City Limits. Listen below!
