She’s made fans out of critics and David Byrne alike—Dallas native St. Vincent returns with a head-turning first taste from her forthcoming new album. Also, Sam Baker only started releasing music when he hit fifty years old, but in a short time, the Austin singer has cemented himself as a singular talent. KUT’s David Brown talks with Baker about tragedy, recovery, redemption, and making one of the year’s best country albums. From Austin to New York and back to Austin—Brazos stop by Studio 1A to play a pair of songs from their album Saltwater. Plus, fifty years of Jimmie Vaughan, Grammy news, and a listener repairs Marcia Ball’s piano—all on this week’s edition of the Austin Music Experience. Join us Friday at noon and again at 11pm on KUTX 98.9, or listen anytime in the player below.
