Shreveport, LA’s Seratones blasted off back in 2016 with their gritty proto-punk/southern garage rock debut, Get Gone but the band has emerged from their three year chrysalis more soulful and self-assured than before. The intermingling of punk and soul makes sense for singer AJ Haynes, who grew up singing in church but found that “punk and garage were the closest thing I could find to the feeling that I found in church growing up,” she told Jody Friday afternoon.

The Seratone’s just-released sophomore record Power is a clear evolution from their raucous whiskey-tossing debut. Don’t be mistaken, theres still plenty of foot stomping grooves on the new record, but Hayne’s has turned her microphone towards a country in social and political turmoil–and with a voice like hers, it’s hard not to listen.

Check out the full interview and all the songs from her Studio 1A session below!

Austin’s very own psych-pop singer-songwriter Matthew Squires can credit his quirky vocal style and impactful lyrics for the seven critically-acclaimed albums he has released since in 2012. After releasing his last record Tambaleo, he split his time between his hometown of Austin and a Buddhist community in East Texas uncovering the roots of the American consciousness. This resulted in the enigmatic theme of his latest album, Visions of America, exploring American mindfulness and current cultural turmoil.

Squires and his band visited Studio 1A ahead of his album release party at Independence Brewery to give us a glimpse into his mystifying eighth album.

It’s been ten years now since Bad Boy Croy (real name Corey Baum) left his hometown in the rustbelt and came to Austin, but he hasn’t forgotten his roots in Bowling Green, Ohio—a small town whose duality helped shape the music he makes today. Both the Home of the National Tractor Pulling Championship and a college town, Baum grew up around hard-edged, hard-working people with an eclectic soundtrack (his My KUTX will give you a sense of where he’s coming from).

But the way Croy and the Boy’s sophomore record Howdy Highrise sounds was shaped by his experiences here in Austin. The Norteño music he heard while working as a landscaper, the dance halls he learned how to move, and outlaw country serve as the landscape for the midwestern songwriter’s stories of the home he won’t forget. 

Celebrating the release of Howdy Highrise this Friday (August 23rd) Croy & the Boys joined us in Studio 1A. Check out the session below, and their album release show at Sam’s Town Point this Saturday (August 24th)!

 

Additional songs from Full Session: “Made Manager,” “Deductibles,” “Hey Baby Que Paso?*,” and “Fuck ICE.”

On the road to the release of his new record Window Rock, Micah Nelson, AKA Particle Kid has had mentors of mythological status. A member of Neil Young’s backing band, Promise of the Real, Micah has absorbed Young’s audiophilic attention to detail in each track on his new record’s nine tracks…as well as the legend’s noise-weaving guitar wizardry. The beautifully curated chaos Micah honed under Young’s tutelage is bolstered by his expert song-craft which one can’t help but think was passed down from his father, Willie Nelson.

Julia Jacklin 6.4.19

Posted by on Jun 12, 2019

Melbourne Australia’s roster of musical talent continues to grow, and Julia Jacklin’s sophomore record Crushing may be the best breakup record to ever come out of that city. Over ten tracks Jacklin quietly dissolves a two year long relationship with shockingly earnest lyricism.

The gambit of emotions that come in the wake of a longterm relationship are spread on the table–bitterness, resent, despondence; but the way she distills these feelings into heartrending yet simple phrases really set Jacklin’s new record apart. On her dream pop ballad “I Don’t Know How to Keep Loving You,” she pines over the the comfort that familiarity brings while simultaneously knowing it’s time to for the relationship to end. Behind the resigned crunch of her guitar she sings, “I want your mother to stay friends with mine.”

Her album is filled with more great lyrics and music, and so is her Studio 1A performance! Check it below.
