The philosophy behind French songwriter Rémi Antoni is all about building bridges between left and right brain, simplicity and complexity and beyond to create the world of Orouni. Antoni started the group as a solo endeavor and now, nearly a decade and a half later, this Parisian indie pop outfit is quick to charm listeners with atypical instrumentation, rich harmonies and a serious dedication to their craft. Orouni recalls sounds of The Kinks and Bob Dylan as much as they do Belle & Sebastian and other contemporaries and just last Friday they released their fourth record Partitions.
The fourteen new tunes on Partitions make for a great introduction to Orouni, so tune up your Tuesday and be a third wheel for a bit with “Charles And Sylvester”!
If you’re still itchin’ for more from our April 2019 KUTX Artist of the Month, then it’s time to dig deeper into The Well. This Austin-based trio draws from a maelstrom of musical influences, filling buckets full of psychedelia, hard rock, metal and punk. Sure, it may be distorted to all hell but that doesn’t mean there’s not a ton of melodic elements and intriguing chord progressions in the mix.
The Well joined us in Studio 1A last Wednesday in advance of their third record Death and Consolation and three release shows later this week. Catch The Well this Thursday at Barracuda, Saturday at Independence Brewing Co., and Sunday at Waterloo Records. Listen back to their This Song and My KUTX episodes when you get a chance, and enjoy a free download of Death and Consolation‘s opening track and an exclusive live recording of “Sabbah”!
When lyricist Megz Kelli met producer-keyboardist Dougie Do at St. Edward’s University back in 2012, they knew they needed to set their sights on music but they had no idea how far it would take them. Now in year seven as in-studio-duo-turned-live-band Magna Carda, they’ve become one of Austin’s most recognizable hip hop/R&B acts and have played alongside the likes of The Pharcyde and Oddisee.
There’ve been recent murmurs of another upcoming album from Magna Carda and just today they released a brand new single that doubles as a heartfelt tribute. Catch Magna Carda at Stubb’s Thursday May 9th and start your weekend off right with the new stuff, “Angels”!
When it comes to Anglo-Swiss producer Little People, hip hop is top priority. Raised by the golden age of rap and further influenced by the ever-burgeoning UK electronic scene, Little People brings a hodge podge of sounds to the table that makes it hard to keep your toe from tapping.
Back in January Little People put out his first album in five years and he continues the Landloper tour this Saturday at the Mohawk! Lock it in with Little People right now with “Tonight”!
There’s not much known about Wilder Woods, but that doesn’t mean there’s not a lot to talk about. We may not have a birth name or a hometown but we do have two singles that flex the unbridled forestry of this soul singer.
While we eagerly await for more information on this secretive crooner, let the music speak for itself and dive right into “Someday Soon”!
