Como Las Movies

My KUTX // October 29, 2022

Como Las Movies is the KUTX Artist of the Month for October 2022.

Growing up along the Texas-Mexico border, Nelson Valente Aguilar soaked up a wide range of sounds. He could slowly comb his radio dial through the signals and pick up norteño, ranchera, rock, pop, and conjunto, and that borderless sound left a big impression on his ears. After moving to Austin, Aguilar started Como Las Movies, a band that’s something of a love letter to his South Texas upbringing. Over the years, he’s stepped more firmly in the spotlight, even taking over singing duties on new single “Café” when the previous vocalist moved on from the band. He debuted the latest iteration of Como Las Movies with a set at ACL Fest, adding an electro-pop sheen to his Tex-Mex sounds in the Austin sun. On November 2, you can catch the band celebrating DIA On Dia at 3TEN, a Dia de los Muertos concert with BLK ODYSSY, Carrie Rodriguez, and more.

This week on My KUTX, Aguilar is our guest DJ. He dives deep into his love of ranchera, norteño, and hip-hop, spins some classic Mexican rock, shares his current favorite pop obsessions, and more. Hear Como Las Movies’ My KUTX on Saturday, October 29 at 6 p.m. or listen anytime at the top of the page.
