Artist of the Month

My KUTX: Zettajoule

Posted by on Nov 23, 2018

Zettajoule is the KUTX Artist of the Month for November.

Austin’s Zettajoules make pop music that’s skewed around the edges. Part of that is due to economic circumstances: when Meggan Carney and Matthew Sheffer sat down to record a batch of songs for their EP Always Looking Up, they simply couldn’t afford a fancy studio. So they captured the whole thing on their iPhones, and the result is a collection of songs that are catchy but smudged with homemade fingerprints.

Carney and Sheffer bring that same energy to their guest DJ set this week. A lot of the songs they pick are home-recorded bits of inspired fun, and you can see where they draw some influence from. Hear Zettajoule’s My KUTX on Saturday, November 24 at 6 p.m. or listen anytime at the bottom of the page.
