KUTX Program Director Matt Reilly lets you know about the best songs ever…this week.
Will Courtney- “Crazy Love”
First up, “Crazy Love” by Will Courtney. Will has been active in the Austin music scene for years, first with his previous band Brothers & Sisters and now as a solo artist. I don’t know how else to put this, but “Crazy Love” just sounds like Texas. If you’re into bands like the Old 97’s, this will be right up your alley.
Blood Orange- “Charcoal Baby”
Next, we move over to the UK for the latest from Dev Hynes, who records under the moniker Blood Orange. “Charcoal Baby” is a slinky, soulful song that is slightly atonal and weird–in a good way.
The Nude Party- “Chevrolet Van”
Finally, from Boone, North Carolina, it’s the Nude Party. Clearly, these guys grew up on ’70s rock like Big Star and Todd Rundgren, and “Chevrolet Van” just sounds like good times.
