David Ramirez & Kalu James – Dark Star

This week our confessor paints an eerie picture of the most scared she’s ever been. A creepy drive into the middle of nowhere, a remote cabin, abandonment by a so called friend in West Virginia

Austin showmen Kalu James and David Ramirez give us a spine tingling collaboration that feels like the soundtrack to your next favorite horror fix.

David Ramirez: “I Believe You”

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.

Season 2 starts January 13! New song premieres from !!!, Alesia Lani, Sea Moya, Jane Ellen Bryant & Terra Lightfoot, David Ramirez & Kalu James, Madisen Ward & The Momma Bear, Night Moves.

So imagine our elation when this six-time Studio 1A veteran visited us backstage at ACL Fest and treated us to a preview of an unreleased track all about his preference for platonic pals, “Friends Forever”!
