Although she’s only been putting out studio cuts for the past couple years, genre-bending singer-songwriter Daisy O’Connor has already made a sizable mark on the Live Music Capital. Aside from her reputation for sincere but lighthearted live shows, O’Connor’s EP Ether blew us away at the start of 2019 and this week she returns to analog roots with Mixtape II.
Inspired by auteurs like Daniel Johnston and Sufjan Stevens, the handful of covers and originals on Mixtape II were recorded straight to 8-track, giving O’Connor’s performances some extra organic weight. Daisy O’Connor joins us in Studio 1A 1:30pm this Wednesday and the Mixtape II release show is this Friday at the Cactus Cafe. So while we here at KUTX certainly don’t endorse any sort of illegal activity, we can’t help but appreciate the lackadaisical charm of this O’Connor original, “Cookies N Weed”!
