My KUTX: Croy & The Boys

Posted by on Jan 20, 2017

Corey Baum is the singer and guitarist for the Austin country outfit Croy & The Boys, whose Adrian Quesada-produced debut hit a nice sweet spot late last year. Baum originally hails from Ohio, but his songwriting owes a debt to Doug Sahm. He’s able to stew together both Texan and Mexican influences in a respectful and celebratory way, and Baum’s guest DJ set is a true celebration too. Over the course of the hour, Baum goes from a pot-smoking teenager hooked on psychedelia to a Houston rap acolyte. Tune in on Saturday, January 21 or listen anytime at the bottom of the page.

My KUTX: Migrant Kids

Posted by on Jan 6, 2017

Almost halfway through their guest DJ set, Austin trio Migrant Kids segue two songs together that pretty much sum up their aesthetic: S U R V I V E’s grainy synthscape right into Fiona Apple’s “On The Bound.” Migrant Kids exist somewhere on this musical plane, experimental but with a big, brash pop heart. Miguel Ojeda, John Zakoor, and Bryan O’Flynn debuted in 2013 but hit a high two years later with its Primordial Soup EP, earning a Black Fret grant for its work. The band is back to work on Saturday, January 7, playing a Free Week show at Stubb’s, and you can get to know the band a little bit better this week on My KUTX. Tune in Saturday at 6 p.m. or listen anytime at the bottom of the page.
