This Song: The Bishops on “Soundtrack to My Life” by Kid Cudi

Posted by on May 29, 2019

Our May Artist of the Month- The Bishops explain that hearing “Soundtrack to My Life” by Kid Cudi for the first time as middle schoolers changed what they thought hip-hop music could be. Kid Cudi spends the song highlighting his negative mental health, an idea that Cara and Troy Bishop hadn’t heard before in the artists they were listening to at the time like Lil’ Wayne and 50 Cent. It led them to write songs that have an emphasis on being lyrically vulnerable, a mission that they hope to continue with each new release. Explains Cara “I’ll always want to be vulnerable in songs because I know other people are too and the fact that they are means we can connect to each other.”

This Song: Bayonne (rerun)

Posted by on Feb 20, 2019

The Beach Boys song “God Only Knows” isn’t just one of Rolling Stone magazine’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time, it’s one of the most heartfelt expressions of loss and grief ever recorded. For Bayonne, the song taught him the power of vulnerability and openness and how to embrace it in his own music. As Bayonne says, it allows the listener to get a “crystal clear understanding of things” and while this moment is “fleeting”, it is worthwhile. Bayonne is KUTX’s Artist of the Month for February.
