With a genesis in Austin, TX, the now Los Angeles based CAPYAC is what happens when you throw French house music, jazz, funk, live dancers, and wild stage antics in a blender and press play. The ever-evolving musical act was started by two high school friends known as Potion and P. Sugz. With a rotating list of contributors including saxophonist Papa Mongoose, MC Rudi Devino, and an unsigned K-Pop singer among others, CAPYAC is constantly reinventing and reevaluating, keeping the listener guessing while always managing to pump out good beats to dance to.

With a new EP release Baby Make Money under their belts, CAPYAC are returning to Austin on July 20th to perform their newest tracks. And with live shows that range from fashion show to performance art, they’re a live act that’s not to be missed.

CAPYAC stopped by Studio 1A ahead of their show on Saturday to bring their live presence onto the radio waves and talk about what went into the making of their newest releases, the band’s transition from Austin to Los Angeles, and why they put the Mayor Steve Adler on the guest list for every show they perform.

Austin based singer-songwriter Daisy O’Connor stopped by Studio 1A ahead of her album release show at the Cactus Cafe on Friday to play a few songs off her upcoming release MIXTAPE II. Inspired by some of her favorite artists Sufjan Stevens and Daniel Johnston, she recorded all of the songs analog onto 8-track cassette with the help of her collaborator Kyle Reed.

A staple of the Austin music scene since the release of her first album Lightchasers in 2017, she’s become known for her unique musical mixture of folk country-pop. Her next release combines some original songs including Cookies N Weed, one of KUTX’s songs of the day, as well as a collection of classic covers of songs from Johnny Cash, Lucinda Williams and others.

Upcoming Shows: MIXTAPE II Release Show w/ Aubrey Hays at Cactus Cafe on 7/19. Show at 8:30 p.m.

Hailing from Florence, Texas, The Boleys consisting of Ethan, Emma, and Joe Boley are a sibling band with a wide variety of influences ranging from psych-rock to blues and punk. Growing up listening to their parent’s music collections and playing in their high school jazz bands, a trip to SXSW in 2015 gave them the inspiration to start writing and performing together.

Although they still live and work out of their refurbished barn turned studio/rehearsal space in Florence, The Boleys have become a staple of the Austin psych scene. You can listen to their newest album El Toro and catch them on their Texas Invasion tour throughout the rest of July.

Upcoming Shows: 7/26 Hotel Vegas @ 7 p.m. with Modular Sun

Hong Kong Wigs 7.11.19

Back in January, our weeknight host Taylor Wallace made the decision to keep track of every single Free Week 2019 show and to listen to every band with available music. For context, Free Week is sort of a local SXSW, taking place the week following New Year’s Day to boost bar sales during one of the slowest weeks of the year by packing venues with stacked line-ups each night of that week. When digging into the line-ups, one band jumped out based on name alone: Hong Kong Wigs. Having no internet presence, much less any music, something about them seemed worth checking out. What we found was a powerful rock trio led by Sweet Spirit bassist Jon Fitcher, helming the mic and wielding a six string.

Joined by bassist Anastasia Wright (Tyler Jordan & the Negative Space and Black Basements) and drummer Adam Galvan (Ex Romantika), Hong Kong Wigs was conceived to be Fitcher’s solo project. As he says, “when you’re the bassist in Sweet Spirit, there’s not a whole lot of room to shred….and I wanted to shred.” Their debut EP was a surprise release in early February, but they dropped into our Studio 1A ahead of last week’s Taylor’d Frequency show and to tease some tunes from their upcoming full-length, due out early 2020.
