  • Colorado singer Brent Cowles performs a bare-boned rendition of "Cold Times."
  • Fresh off a new album produced by The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach, this funny Texas quintet brings its fiddles and banjos to Austin's KUT for a session in Studio 1A. Listen to the performance now.
  • One of the latest talents to emerge from Denton, Texas, owns a fantastic voice and the writing chops to match. Fresh off tours with Norah Jones and Lou Barlow, Jaffe and her band stop by KUT in Austin for an in-studio performance.
  • Hear the North Carolina indie-rock sextet perform in the KUT studios in Austin, and chat with host Matt Reilly about adding some Latin swing to its new EP.
  • Choc Quib Town, a hip-hop act from Colombia's Pacific coast, mixes in marimba and other traditional instruments with turntables and keyboards, creating a world beat-infused sound. In a session from KUT, the joy they bring to their craft is evident and infectious.
  • San Antonio's Hacienda knows how to pay homage to its musical lineage. Not many bands can convincingly cover the likes of The Everly Brothers and Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs, but Hacienda pulls it off in style during this session from KUT.
  • Asheville's Toubab Krewe is an instrumental band which fuses the music of Mali and other West African influences with American musical styles. In a session from KUT, the band augmented the standard rock formation with a kora, ngoni, djembe, krin and scraper.
  • For a duo, Wye Oak sure is busy. Andy Stack alone plays drums, keyboards and loops and sings into a Vocoder — all at once. Blending shoegazer pop and Americana, Wye Oak interjects bursts of distortion in a session from KUT.
  • Austin singer-songwriter Slaid Cleaves has been writing meaningful music for many years, but his new album (Everything You Love Will Be Taken Away) is a game-changer. Cleaves recently stopped by KUT's Studio 1A to share some of his new songs.
  • Crain's inviting blend of country twang and indie-rock earnestness has made a name for her both in and out of Americana circles. With her band, The Midnight Shivers, she performs songs from her debut album at KUT's Studio 1A.
