Location: KLRU’s Studio 6A

Recognized for his thought provoking lyrics and soft-spirited demeanor, David Bazan has captivated the hearts of audiences everywhere. With many of his songs containing theological undertones, he connects with his fans through his honest expression of personal struggle with faith and skepticism. “Lyrics have always been the focal point of Bazan’s music, and they carry a vast majority of the weight” (Paste). With his album Strange Negotiations recently out, Bazan continues to prove that, “It’s these quiet moments that demonstrate what the Seattle-based musician does best–paint a specific picture with words that put you inside his memories and minimalist melodies that tie them all together” (Under The Radar).

Wiretree tapes Satellite Sets 1/27

Austin’s own Wiretree will tape Thursday, January 27, at 7:30 p.m. in KLRU’s Studio 6A. Doors will open at 7 and the taping will take about an hour. The taping is free.

Singer-songwriter Kevin Peroni began composing heartfelt indie melodies reminiscent of The Shins meets early Posies under the band’s moniker in 2005. Since then, Peroni has inducted three additional members to help Wiretree excel in lacing tracks with infectious hooks and choruses reminding us of an orchestrated Tom Petty-esque pomp and circumstance. The collective’s latest LP, Luck, has been included on various year-end lists and incorporates a variety of classic influences to produce an endearing yet simplistic indie pop masterpiece. Powerpop Station describes Luck as “a collection of pop gems of rare beauty, a panel revealing an inspired artist, a pill filled with good feelings” while Blurt Magazine praises its “underground-tinted ’80s stylings and latterday indie rock with a distinctive anthemic edge.” With the assured grace of Elliott Smith-like vocals and Peroni’s acoustic innocence, the album assures to provoke a bright and enjoyable musical experience.
