Portland, Maine songwriter Jeff Beam returns to BTR Live Studio for a very special At Home session, featuring three songs recorded remotely and filmed on VHS – performed with Kate Beaver in their living room/recording studio/dining room. Here, the duo tackles one of the most dynamic tracks off Beam’s latest record, using loops and backing tracks for a stunning experimental pop performance set against a Maine sunset and dripping with psychedelic vibes. Jeff Beam’s self-titled LP is available now. Watch our previous video for Jeff Beam’s “Disarray” and listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.

Photo Ops is the LA-based project of Terry Price. Following a move from Nashville, his songwriting shifted towards a more personal, folk-tinged sort of pop. What remains is his super-attuned sense of melody, in what he refers to as “adult lullabies.” Here, he shares an exclusive, intimate acoustic performance from his home studio. Pure At Heart is out now from Western Vinyl. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.
