KUTX host Art Levy spills the beans on the BEST SONGS EVER! At least for this week.
Cautious Clay – “Crowned”
We’re going all SXSW-themed music this week, because have you heard? There’s this little music festival that’s taking over Austin the next few weeks… Let’s start with Cautious Clay. His music is dark and soulful, but the thing I like the best is the sense of atmosphere. Check out “Crowned,” and catch Cautious Clay at KUTX Live at the Four Seasons on Thursday.
Luz Elena Mendoza – “Cuatro Crazy”
Next, Luz Elena Mendoza, also in town for SXSW. She’s been making music as Y La Bamba for over a decade, but her latest album Mujeres is self-produced. On “Cuatro Crazy,” she really lets her personality and weirdness shine through, sounding a bit like the Cocteau Twins mixed with her Mexican-American heritage.
