"What’s Your Basement" by Russian Baths
BTR Live Studio | ep688 | Mar 6, 2018
Russian Baths is a New York band that lays the noise on thick for their fuzzy and heavy, yet harmonious post-punk/psych sounds. Big riffs, hooks, dissonance, and squealing feedback are all over their music, which feels both exhilarating and a bit haunting at times. The band -- comprised of Luke Koz, Jess Ress, Evan Gill Smith, and Steve Levine -- stopped by Serious Business Music in Brooklyn to share their songs with us.

Penance EP is available now on cassette, via Good Eye Records.

Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.
