Seduced By Sound Austin is a book that celebrates the past, present, and future of Austin music. Carley Wolf–singer and guitarist for locals the Ghost Wolves–teamed up with Kim Gorsuch, who heads the publishing platform Weeva. Together, they interviewed one hundred Austin musicians, including Adrian Quesada, Alejandro Escovedo, Sabrina Ellis of Sweet Spirit and A Giant Dog, Dana Falconberry, and more, focusing on why they make music, their inspirations, and their advice for up-and-comers.

Part of the proceeds of the book go towards HAAM, and they’re celebrating with a release party at the ABGB on Tuesday, December 6. And this week on My KUTX, Carley and Kim help launch the book with an Austin-centric guest DJ set made up of some of the book’s featured artists. Tune in Saturday, December 3 at 6 p.m. or listen anytime at the bottom of the page.

My KUTX: Thomas Dolby

Posted by on Nov 11, 2016

If there’s a single throughline in Thomas Dolby’s new memoir, The Speed Of Sound, it’s curiosity. The British new wave star hit it big in 1982 with “She Blinded Me With Science” and rounded out the decade by working with Michael Jackson, David Bowie, Joni Mitchell, and Foreigner. He remade himself as a Silicon Valley tech entrepreneur in the ’90s, and he’s recently served as both the Music Director for the TED Conference and as as Professor of the Arts at Johns Hopkins University.

This week on My KUTX, Dolby takes us through his life in music and technology with a guest DJ set that could serve as the soundtrack to The Speed Of Sound. Tune in Saturday, November 12 at 6 p.m. or listen anytime at the bottom of the page.

–Art Levy // producer, My KUTX

Playlist:

1. Thomas Dolby – “One Of Our Submarines”

2. The Clash – “Spanish Bombs”
