Craig Finn @ KUT 1/24/12
Frontman for Brooklyn band the Hold Steady, Craig Finn brought himself down to Austin to record his first solo album. Known for his literary-minded lyrics, Finn was attracted to Austin so he could work with producer Mike McCarthy, who helped add a folky, guitar-heavy sound to the album without getting in the way of Finn’s lyrical work. The album, Clear Heart Full Eyes, is out today. Listen to Craig Finn swing by studio 1a to play live from the new album for KUT host Jay Trachtenberg.
