White Denim has established themselves as staples in the Austin music scene. They just got back in town, hot off a short tour around the Lone Star State supporting last year’s release, In Person. We welcome the veterans back into Studio 1A as they prepare to play at the annual Hi How Are You Day concert on January 22. The show celebrates the life and work of Austin’s own Daniel Johnston while spreading awareness and open conversation around mental health. Listen to the band cover Johnston’s “I Have Lost My Mind” and Hi How Are You Project co-founder Tom Gimbel discuss the history and future of the non-profit. He and co-founder Courtney Blanton figured “Hi, How Are You” to be the perfect initiator of conversation about mental illness. This year’s event includes a lineup of Cage the Elephant, Dan Luke and the Raid, Tunde Adebimpe of TV on the Radio, and many more.

Hi How Are You Day takes place at the Moody Theatre. The event can also be livestreamed beginning at 7:30 pm CST.

Terry Allen & the Panhandle Mystery Band 1.17.20

With a new album, Just Like Moby Dick, scheduled for a January 24 release, a Grammy nomination, and a slew of art exhibitions in the works, 2020 is shaping up to be a banner year for Texas renaissance man and songwriting legend Terry Allen. Like his seminal albums Lubbock On Everything and Juarez, the new music stays true to Terry Allen’s special brand of delightfully wacky panhandle philosophy. To celebrate the new album Allen brought his all-star Panhandle Mystery Band to KUTX for a live broadcast with a studio audience.

Take a peek at the great videos from this session and listen to the full interview to hear Terry Allen talk about how scary it is to release new art, plus his plans for the ashes of longtime friend and collaborator Guy Clarks.

The Panhandle Mystery Band is Shannon McNally (vocals), Davis McLarty (drums, vocals), Charlie Sexton (guitar), Bukka Allen (keys, accordion), Richard Bowden (fiddle, mandolin), and Lloyd Maines (pedal steel).

On the new record, Trail of Dead stays true to the dark, brooding, louder than life punk ethos that fueled their early success.

Lace up your hiking boots because Hikes is here to take you on a musical journey to a place where pain, beauty, and the strength to overcome it all flows in abundance.  Fronted by Filipinx naturalist Nay Wilkins, this Austin band uses their newest album, Mahal Kita (a Tagalog term for “I Love You”), to explore the empathy and compassion required to not only survive but flourish in the face of hardship and trauma. Like the subject matter it tackles, this album is the band’s most intense and musically complex album to date. Songs on the new album follow the heavy instrumental folk of previous work but take the time to blossom and unfold in a way that Hikes fans will certainly appreciate. Mahal Kita reintroduces Claire Puckett (Mother Falcon) on guitar and vocals, alongside the technical prowess of long-running members Colin Jenkins (Bass) and Chris Long (Drums), as well as marimbas from The Kraken Quartet. Get a sneak preview of the new music from their recent visit to Studio 1A and make plans to catch the band at their album release show at Barracuda on Friday, January 17th w/ Kraken Quartet and Christelle Bofale!
