Shivery Shakes were sewn together by escapism and happenstance after years of playing together in the local Austin music scene. Their first releases in 2012 and 2013 were summery pop manifestos on how to party like a beach bum even if you’re landlocked. They broadened their horizons and tightened up their sparkly melodies for their 2015 debut LP Three Waves and a Shake. After extensive touring of Three Waves, the band wanted to expand their sound further, exploring fuzzier hooks and darker themes. A year and a half of evolving new songs and sounds lead to two years in the studio crafting a new album, Weird Weather. The new full-length effort brandishes the same level of musical sensibility, while exploring depths that are as haunting as they are inviting.

Shivery Shakes stopped by Studio 1A on September 17, ahead of the release of their new record Weird Weather, out September 20 on Austin Town Hall Records. Listen to and watch the full session below.

“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!

David Beck’s Tejano Weekend 9.16.19

Posted by on Sep 18, 2019

The summer of 2017 found Texas native David Beck lost and looking for inspiration; an impromptu house party was where it all changed. There on the big screen TV, volume on full blast, was Selena and her band shaking the Astrodome with a sound that resonated and caused a chain reaction inside. He was instantly captivated and knew his next move. He began devouring Tejano music, one of the soundtracks of his birthplace San Marcos, Texas. This quickly led to writing and recording Tejano-inspired music, and naturally began playing shows. Gathering up friends, he quickly had a band: blazing accordion, shimmering keys, cranked guitars, upright bass and drums. The sound he’s created is traditional Tejano sung in English. Every song is a dance track, every show a party focused on friends, family, and bringing the two together.
David is no stranger to the stage; he took his previous bands Sons of Fathers and Blue Healer from The Grand Ole Opry to Bonnaroo and from Gruene Hall to Austin City Limits. This latest incarnation of his art will surely leave fans with limp legs and happy hearts.

David Beck’s Tejano Weekend stopped by Studio 1A on September 16 ahead of their debut album, Tejano Weekend Vol. 1, out September 27 with a release show the same day at Cheatham St. Warehouse in San Marcos.  Listen to the full performance below.

Flora & Fawna 9.17.19

Posted by on Sep 18, 2019

KUTX’s Artist of the Month, Flora & Fawna, sat down with Jay Trachtenberg this week in studio 1a. Flora & Fawna is the combination of the musical talent from  Lili Hickman and Mason Ables and was an accidental creation. After hearing Hickman’s folk-inspired songs, Ables suggested teaming up, fleshing out the songs with his beats and electronic production work. “Slow Burn” is the first result, a song that emphasizes Hickman’s voice but gives it a danceable grounding. On Thursday, September 26, Flora & Fawna releases its debut EP with a show at Cheer Up Charlie’s.

You can listen to and watch Flora & Fawna’s studio 1a session 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!
