On “One,” Austin’s Moving Panoramas breakout 2015 song, Leslie Sisson sang about the power of solitude. But buried beneath the crystalline guitars and stacked harmonies was a devastating truth: “One is how we all came in / One is how we all will go / We all know one is the number we all fear the most.” Sisson has seen her share of devastating truths. As she wrote in a moving article in the Austin Chronicle, Moving Panoramas “began as an outlet for trauma and tragedy,” and it continues to be. Trauma and tragedy also sidelined the release of the band’s second album In Two, but it’s community and love that threads its way through the record.
Those are also the threads tying together Moving Panoramas’ My KUTX, guest DJed by Sisson, Cara Tillman, and Rosie Casto. Hear the episode on Saturday, March 9, 6 to 7 p.m. or anytime at the bottom of the page.
