My KUTX: T Bird & The Breaks

Posted by on Feb 25, 2015

T Bird & the Breaks–our artist of the month–spread the gospel of “chunk”: soul, funk, hip-hop, and rock all brewed together. Since 2007, they’ve quickly becoming one of the must-see acts around town, and you can catch them at 2nd Street Soundcheck on Saturday. Harmonizm, the band’s third album, is bigger and brighter, veering between the sounds of New Orleans, Memphis, and Detroit while still adding some local flavor. T Bird himself (a.k.a. Tim Crane) takes over My KUTX this week with the help of sax man Andy Panda McCormick. Listen to their guest DJ set and see their playlist below!
