Sometimes a band doesn’t find its audience until decades later. On this week’s edition of Texas Music Matters, we’re profiling two of these groups, one Texan and one with some interesting Texan connections—the Krayolas and Big Star. Also, Austin’s Wiretree is known for its Beatles-esque pop, but the album that changed frontman Kevin Peroni’s life? Definitely not the Beatles. Plus: Hayes Carll teams up with up-and-comer Emily Gimble, Fitz and the Tantrums talk about getting their start in Austin, the week’s music news and some more Texas-sized surprises. Join us for Texas Music Matters Friday at noon and again Friday night at 11 on KUTX 98-9, or anytime in the player below.
