KUTX Host Art Levy spills the beans on the BEST SONGS EVER! At least for this week.

Caribou- “Home”
After five long years, one of my personal favorite artists is finally back with some new music. Dan Snaith, better known as Caribou, really has a knack for making electronic music that’s organic and emotional, and this new song really packs a punch. Here’s “Home” by Caribou.

A Giant Dog- “Black Mirror”
Up next, Austin’s A Giant Dog covering Arcade Fire. I know, right? Where did this come from? Merge Records, which has served as the label for both A Giant Dog and Arcade Fire, turns 30 years old this year, and they asked some of their artists to cover full albums as a celebration of Merge’s catalog. A Giant Dog puts a punk rock spin on Arcade Fire’s 2007 album Neon Bible, and it rules. It shows what great songwriters Arcade Fire has, and what an incredible band A Giant Dog truly is. Here they are covering “Black Mirror.”

Angel Olsen-“What It Is”
Finally, new music from Angel Olsen. On her album All Mirrors, Olsen has blown up her sound to epic proportions. Composer Jherek Bischoff adds these incredible string arrangements to Olsen’s songs, making them sound both classic and futuristic. You can see Olsen at Stubb’s next Thursday as part of Levitation Fest, and here’s “What It Is” by Angel Olsen.
