TV Temple: “Wild”

Song of the Day

By: Jack Anderson

With freezing temperatures in the forecast and the trauma of last year’s statewide blackout all-too-fresh in memory, many Texans just want to fast-forward to sandier summer times. Well, at least in the musical world you can do just that with Austin “beach-alt” duo TV Temple, who’re still in the standalone single phase of their career. As such, the sunny indie-psych-rock that characterizes “beach alt” is largely undefined as of yet, and”Wild”, the second of TV Temple’s two tracks on ATX Gen Next: Adventures in Person, definitely lets a little more loose than its predecessors.

Natalie Price: “Butterfly”

Song of the Day

By: Jack Anderson

At the top ofLove Austin Music Month we re-introduced you toAustin Music Foundation’s Artist Development Program and their new compilation ATX Gen Next: Adventures in Person. ATX Gen Next: Adventures in Person features a dozen original songs from six Austin artists, including indie-pop/Americana-folk aficionado Natalie Price. This guitarist, vocalist, and kalimba-enthusiast began to seriously forge her songwriting path with 2019’s Through the Fog and has clearly matured even more in the short time since then. That sense of progressive metamorphosis is hopefully a longstanding trend for the burgeoning singer and her blossoming career, so enjoy some new Natalie Price at no cost (while you still can) with “Butterfly”!

Sun June: “Reminded” (Live in Studio 1A)

Song of the Day

By: Jack Anderson

COVID-19’s omicron variant quickly curbed some of the Live Music Capital’s winter highlights – high profile New Year’s Eve shows, an overflow of talent throughout Free Week, and the long anticipated return of music to KUTX’s beloved Studio 1A. But especially with the recent foggy mornings and freezing temperatures on the horizon, we’re just thankful to share some sultry summer heat from Austin’s Sun June.

Sun June stopped by Studio 1A in early December, right aroundthe same time that the quintet released the deluxe expanded edition of their LP Somewhere. They’re starting off 2022 strong with a multi-month three-leg national tour with support from Daphne Tunes (fronted by featured guitarist Santiago Dietche), a co-headline tour with Katy Kirby, and supporting Shakey Graves, including an appearance on Sunday, February 6th at Empire Control Room alongside Little Mazarn. With uplifting chord structures and earthy arrangements (including Somewhere (Expanded) exclusive “Reminded”) Sun June’s Studio 1A set is absolutely phenomenal.
