Austin icon David Ramirez has been a major station staple of ours since KUTX’s humble origins. You’ve no doubt heard the Americana-connoisseur on our airwaves and we’ve had him in Studio 1A more times than we can count but the big news this week is the announcement of a new live EP.
Rules & Regulations not only marks the tenth total collection of songs from Ramirez but also the completion of a new challenge – recording and mixing six tracks to tape live in the studio with zero overdubs – all accomplished at Austin Signal in a mere two days. Hearing Ramirez in this new environment is already a treat and to top it off the special EP Box Set for Rules & Regulations also comes equipped with a coffee roast personalized by the man himself. Rules & Regulations is out February 25th and the album closer “I Believe You” (inspired by the Kavanaugh-Ford hearings) testifies to the top-tier quality of these previously unreleased songs.
