My KUTX: Jack Wilson

Posted by on Dec 15, 2017

Jack Wilson has his boots both in songwriting and booking live music–in other words, he’s an Austinite, through-and-through. You can usually find him at Radio Coffee & Beer, where he books a diverse live music calendar. But this Saturday, he’s playing his own music, celebrating the release of his new album Kami, Coming To Get Me with a show at Empire Control Room. Before he takes the stage, he’s back as our guest DJ, spinning a set of Austin music you can find at Radio most nights. Tune in on Saturday, December 16, 6 to 7 p.m. or listen anytime at the bottom of the page.

The influences and ideas that went into Making Movies’ I Am Another You are pretty crazy. Singer/guitarist Enrique Chi and producer Steve Berlin (also known for his saxophone work in Los Lobos) discussed merging everything from Kendrick Lamar and the Beatles to Cuban jazz and the Clash. The craziest thing? It totally works. I Am Another You is one of the year’s standout albums, a protest record that doesn’t forget to party. To paraphrase Funkadelic, “free your ass, and your mind will follow.”

This week on My KUTX, we’re excited to have Enrique and Steve as our guest DJs. They discuss the making of the record and play an hour of ear-and-mind opening music. Tune in on Saturday, December 9, 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., or listen anytime at the bottom of the page.

On this year’s Huntress Moon EP, Austin’s Ali Holder shows off a folk sound that’s cosmically-inclined but tough and earthy (there’s even a song called “Gemini Gunslinger”). This week on My KUTX, Holder curates a playlist of influences and musical memories: seeing Patty Griffin dancing at the Broken Spoke, falling in love with Willie Nelson, and listening to the late, great Tom Petty under a Texas sky. Listen to Ali Holder’s guest DJ set on Saturday, November 25, 6-7 p.m. or anytime at the bottom of the page.

Ali Holder plays the Winflo Listening Room on December 7 with Austin’s Noel McKay.
