Ways to Connect

This week, KSUT will feature the new CD from My Morning Jacket, 'The Waterfall', Friday 5/15 at 12 noon.  

Over the past 15+ years, Kentucky’s My Morning Jacket have quietly put together a body of work that warrants them a place in the highest echelons of modern American independent music. The band have blended folk, country and space rock into a heady brew of Southern gothic capable of concocting both sublime beauty and oppressive drama in equal measure.

KSUT gives you an advance listen to the new CD from longtime Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings backing singers, Saundra Williams and Starr Duncan Lowe. Known as Saun & Starr, the gals are set to release their debut full-length album, 'Look Closer', on May 19th. 

KSUT will feature the new Van Morrison album, DUETS: RE-WORKING THE CATALOGUE on Friday, May 1 at 12 noon.

One of today's finest acoustic bands, Balsam Range, is headlining at the Durango Bluegrass Meltdown, April 17-19. To give you a preview, KSUT will feature their latest recording, 'Five' on Friday, April 17 at 12 noon. 

Steve Earle's new CD 'Terraplane' takes its title from the 1930s Hudson Motor Car Company of Detroit model, which also inspired the Robert Johnson song, “Terraplane Blues.” It is Earle’s 16th studio album since the release of his highly influential 1986 debut Guitar Town. As its title suggests, the album is very much a blues record, some of which was written while Earle toured Europe alone for five weeks with just a guitar, a mandolin and a backpack.

KSUT will feature 'Terraplane', Friday, April 3 at 12 noon.

"Asleep at the Wheel has always worn its affinity for Bob Wills proudly, but never more so than on its new album. Still the King: Celebrating the Music of Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys  is the venerable Texas swing band’s third salute to the late great King of Western swing, following 1993′s Tribute to the Music of Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys and 1999′s A Ride With Bob." - Rolling Stone

Mark Knopfler has just released his eighth studio album, ‘Tracker’, featuring 11 new songs inspired by a wide range of subjects, including British author Beryl Bainbridge and poet Basil Bunting. The songs contain Mark’s usual wryly, but accurately observed vignettes of real life wrapped up in a musical accompaniment of distinctive subtlety.

Brandi Carlile releases her new CD  ‘The Firewatcher’s Daughter' this week, and KSUT will be featuring the full disc Friday, 3/6 at noon.  The 12-song album features pristine harmonies and represents the start of a fresh chapter for Carlile and her longtime collaborators Tim and Phil Hanseroth, also known as “The Twins.”

‘The Firewatcher’s Daughter’ was recorded almost entirely as first takes without any demoing and little rehearsal before gathering at Bear Creek Studio in Washington State.

KSUT will feature the new CD by core artist Robert Earl Keen on Friday, February 27 at noon. Debuting at #1 on Billboard's Bluegrass Albums Chart this week, Keen's album 'Happy Prisoner' has proved to be a successful first venture into the world of bluegrass for the legendary Texas songwriter. 

Along with critical praise from The New York Times, Rolling Stone, NPR's Fresh Air and others, the stylistic risk-taking of 'Happy Prisoner' has also been embraced by Keen's loyal fans.

The legacy of Colorado's Leftover Salmon continues with the release of 'High Country', featuring 12 great songs and the addition of  legendary Little Feat keyboardist Bill Payne as an official band member. The album was produced by Steve Berlin (Los Lobos) and includes special guests Casey Driessen, Andy Hall (Infamous Stringdusters), Joey Porter (The Motet) and Kim Dawson. KSUT will feature 'High Country', Friday, 2/13 at 12 noon in its entirety.
