2020 In Review! We revisit our chat about the 2011 movie, ‘Contagion’ from way back in March. Plus music by Lisel, Activity, Shamir, Felicia Douglass… and Allison Langerak and Wyatt Tuzo.
This is part 1 of 3 for my 2020 year in music recap. As always, this is an incomplete list of my favorites, and presented unranked, though along the way I may highlight some records that really stood out a little extra for me this year. We're doing things alphabetically this time around, so this episode covers artist names from A to D.
In this episode, we're taking a look back at the music from the first half of the year, including sessions recorded at Serious Business Music in Brooklyn with Travis Harrison, and the first batch of BTR Live Studio at Home sessions! All of these episodes were hosted by Maia Macdonald.
NYC band Activity is a supergroup of sorts, with Travis Johnson, Steve Levine, Zoë Browne, and Jess Rees coming from the excellent bands Grooms, Field Mouse, and Russian Baths. They visited us at Serious Business Music in Brooklyn back before their album came out earlier this year and now we present this second video from their session with us. Unmask Whoever, the debut album from Activity, is available now from by Western Vinyl. Watch our previous video for Activity's "Earth Angel" and listen to the audio podcast from their session.
Looking back at music from the first half off 2020 that we've been enjoying... part 1 of 2!
It's time for an eclectic two-hour mix of music - broadly in the "indie rock" world for the most part - as we gear up for some more record label features coming down the line. Check out selections from recent label features, new releases, and some tasty finds from the BTRtoday music library, including some usual suspects such as Anna Burch, Waxahatchee, Ghost Funk Orchestra, Jeff Beam, and much more!
