Austin's Alejandro Rose-Garcia, who records as Shakey Graves, has made a name for himself over the past decade for his high energy performances and for his music, which ranges from Americana to blues. There's even a little punk-inflected rock and roll.

What started as Rose-Garcia's one-man operation, with a kickdrum made from a suitcase, has evolved into a full band experience. The Shakey Graves sound has evolved over the years too.

Now back with his first album in five years, Can’t Wake Up,  Shakey Graves and his band returned to Studio A to play us a couple of new songs. He talked about the concept behind the new album and how his music has changed.
