Flora & Fawna–the moniker for Austin’s Lili Hickman and Mason Ables–was an accidental creation. After hearing Hickman’s folk-inspired songs, Ables suggested teaming up, fleshing out the songs with his beats and electronic production work. “Slow Burn” is the first result, a song that emphasizes Hickman’s voice but gives it a danceable grounding. On Thursday, September 26, Flora & Fawna releases its debut EP with a show at Cheer Up Charlie’s. This week on My KUTX, the pair also take turns as our guest DJs, playing an hour of influences and inspirations. Hear My KUTX on Saturday, September 21 at 6 p.m. or listen at any time in the player below.
