There’s a lot of excellent new music out by Brooklyn artists this April. In fact, you can attend release shows three nights in a row from Thursday, April 26th, through Saturday, April 28th for three different artists you can hear in this episode of the podcast. This is your first chance to hear a new track off of Parlor Walls’ new EP, EXO, anywhere on the BTR network. Additionally, we have tracks from Gracie Mansion’s new EP and Robot Princess’ new album available here for the first time anywhere. And you can download one of those Gracie Mansion tracks, “Backback,” right here from us.
Producer’s Note: Apologies to Gracie Mansion for getting one of their song titles wrong. It’s called “Starling,” not “Own Thing,” as said in the episode.
