KUTX Host Susan Castle spills the beans on the BEST SONGS EVER! At least for this week.
Black Pumas – “Colors”
First up, it’s music from Austin’s own Black Pumas, who won “Best New Band” and “Song Of The Year” honors at this year’s Austin Music Awards. The band features the giant talents of Grammy-winning producer/guitarist Adrian Quesada and singer Eric Burton. The KUTX July Artist of the Month will be returning from a very successful nationwide tour for three shows at the Mohawk on August 23, 24, and 25. Check out “Colors,” from Black Pumas’ self-titled debut.
Kevin Morby – “Sing a Glad Song”
Next up, singer-songwriter Kevin Morby, who was born in Lubbock, raised in Kansas City and living in Brooklyn these days. He released his fifth album this year, Oh My God, and as the album title suggests, the subject of the album is our cultural relationship with God. It tackles everything from the deep to the trivial to our everyday use of the expression “oh my God.” Hear “Sing A Glad Song” by Kevin Morby.
Tycho – “Pink & Blue”
Our final song comes from Tycho, the stage name for Scott Hansen. His last album, Epic, got a Grammy nomination for “Best Dance/Electronic Album.” And his fifth album, Weather, has more of an indie-rock feel, heavier on the human voice. That voice belongs to L.A. singer-songwriter Saint Sinner, who sings on “Pink & Blue.”
