My KUTX: Shy Beast

Shy Beast is the KUTX Artist of the Month for January. Photo by Gabriel C. Pérez/KUTX.

On “Leave Me Be,” Austin’s Shy Beast build an earworm from a lot of disparate parts: Mariclaire Glaser’s staccato piano and smooth singing; fuzzed-out guitars; and a boom-bap drum beat. The band’s guest DJ set works the same way, finding time for Brazilian sambas, pop crooners, electronic ballads, and even a little Zeppelin. Hear Shy Beast’s My KUTX on Saturday, January 19, 6 to 7 p.m. or listen anytime at the bottom of the page.
