Austin’s Will Courtney spent years with the local folk-pop outfit Brothers & Sisters before striking out on his own. His solo material dials up the Neil Young-meets-Beach Boys sound, especially on his new album Planning Escapes, which is out July 15 via Wren & Shark. Courtney celebrates with a release show at Hotel Vegas on July 1. He’s also our guest DJ this week on My KUTX, playing an hour of his favorite songs and influences. Tune in Saturday, June 25 at 6 p.m. or listen anytime at the bottom of the page.
