For twenty-five years, Austin’s …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead has crafted punk rock with epic proportions. X: The Godless Void And Other Stories–the band’s tenth album, out January 17 with an Austin release show at the Far Out Lounge on January 14–shows off the group’s love of concept albums and cohesive statements, married to a visceral, surging sound. Founding members Conrad Keely and Jason Reece are also the guest DJs this week on My KUTX. Mixing Sonic Youth’s roar and Kate Bush’s art-pop with newer inspirations like Lower Dens and Protomartyr, their playlist is a perfect encapsulation of Trail Of Dead’s unique aesthetic. Hear Trail Of Dead’s My KUTX on Saturday, January 11 at 6 p.m. or listen at any time below.
