“It all comes from experimenting, figuring it out.”

This philosophy on songwriting and producing has propelled the dynamic career of Jerry Paper (the alter-ego of Los Angeles native Lucas Nathan) since he began producing electronic music to eliminate his disdain for the genre in 2009. For his latest album, it was imperative for him to find the right label to disseminate his most personal record to date. And when he found his perfect label match with Stone Throw Records, out came a baby. Well, his latest album, Like A Baby, which, coupled with his dynamic musical ability and abstract songwriting, proves that Jerry Paper is still one of the most enigmatic oddballs in music.

Jerry Paper discusses finding that sweet spot for his latest album, touring, and his evolving sonic style with host Taylor Wallace. Listen to the live performance and interview below!

Lead vocalist Brian Herd of the New York trio Daddy Long Legs explained to KUTX host Laurie Gallardo, “Rock and roll can never die. The blues is always there…it’s always going to be there boiling under the surface until one day it just bubbles up and explodes”. And on their latest album Lowdown Ways, Daddy Long Legs proves blues and rock and roll are far from dead. From urban roadhouses and swank clubs around the world, the energetic trio has wowed audiences with their “dirty blues” style, and are now bringing their raucous guitar riffs, stompin’ beats, and a cinematic delivery to KUTX’s Studio 1A.

Check out the live performance below!

While on tour in support of their debut album, Whitney‘s Julien Ehrlich and Max Kakacek were weathering the transitional period of their mid-twenties: priorities were shifting, relationships were changing, and their career was on the rise. With all of these changes, the Chicago duo became fixated on the anxiety and acceptance of time’s limitation, which eventually became the major theme behind the duo’s landmark sophomore album, Forever Turned Around. By permeating sixties and seventies folk-rock with visuals of nostalgic memories, Whitney mentions they are actively avoiding being “too indie”, pulling lush strings, organs and horns together with a timelessness that can’t be put into one category.

The duo stopped by Studio1A ahead of their two sold-out shows in Austin to play some songs off their new album and chat with KUTX’s Jody Denberg. Check out the full session and an unaired bonus track below!

Host: Jody Denberg

Audio: Cliff Hargrove and Charles Glanders

Rooted in Austin and currently based in Los Angeles, Chris Catalena is the definition of the “outlaw country-folk musician,” having been an actual outlaw who spent his 21st birthday in prison. This retired lifestyle breathes hopefulness into his music, with a more mature songwriting style. Catalena demonstrates his optimistic inspirations in the lead single off of his self-titled debut, “Little Thread”. He notions that building something beautiful can start from something small: “Never giving up hope of love, reminded me of my little grandma stitching her elaborate quilts, starting with the littlest stitch of the littlest thread.”

Want to be inspired from his performance? Catalena has a release show in celebration of his self-titled debut at the Cactus Cafe September 13th at 8 PM!

Can’t make it out? Listen to the live performance below.
