KUTX Host Jody Denberg spills the beans on the BEST SONGS EVER! At least for this week.
Ley Line – “Oxum”
Austin’s Ley Line is the KUTX Artist Of The Month for October. On “Oxum”–from their forthcoming album We Saw Blue, out in 2020–the quartet weaves together the cultures of Austin and Brazil. Ley Line plays ACL Fest on Sunday at 12:45 p.m.
Bedouine – “Dizzy”
Bedouine is a Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter of Syrian-American heritage. Her given name is Azniv Korkejian, and her second album, Bird Songs Of A Killjoy, is out now. “Dizzy” features the orchestral production work of Spacebomb Records, from Richmond, Virginia.
Preservation Hall Jazz Band – “Keep Your Head Up”
And finally, “Keep Your Head Up” from the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, who have been making great music since the early 1960s. Their latest, A Tuba To Cuba, is a fusion of New Orleans and Cuban music, and there’s a documentary of the same name that covers the making of the album.
