Looking back at music from the first half off 2020 that we’ve been enjoying… part 2 of 2! Check out part 1 here.
Songs I love to start this next journey around the sun.
Time is weird these days.  Quarantine has made distinctions like weekends and weekdays meaningless, and the last time I checked June was just starting.  Welp, now it’s gone, so let’s say goodbye to it together with double shots and new indie tunes, shall we?
We’re revisiting some new and recent music releases with a big, sweet playlist mix this week!
As of today, I’ve been away from my Brooklyn apartment for two months. Today, we’re taking a break from chit chat to listen to a bunch of good new music, including songs from Thao and The Get Down Stay Down, Dirty Projectors, Lido Pimienta, and Cassowary. Take a breather.
Lots of newer music on today’s playlist – hopefully you can enjoy it in the sunshine (if that’s your thing).
M. Ward earns a well-deserved top spot with his 10th solo album Migration Stories. Elvis Depressedly make their countdown debut. All the most played albums on the site in one spot.
Check out who else made the top indie artists for this week & amp up that discovery music playlist of yours!
Land of Talk is back with a new single from her forthcoming album, Indistinct Conversations, available July 31st via Saddle Creek.
Pablo Dylan, Cassowary and Caveboy make their countdown debuts. Trace Mountains takes the top spot with their new album, Lost In The Country. All the top played albums on the site in one spot.
One of our all-time favorites makes the top spot again! See who else made the list.
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!
No JT memes here, just good music.
All the albums getting the most play here on BTR this week. Including Anna Burch in the top spot. Give this mix a listen and then purchase your favorite album if you are able. Lots of artists needing your support during this time.
The sultry sounds of Anna Burch take the lead once again this week—see who else made the cut.
In our artist spotlight this week you’ll hear music from ‘Jacqueline’ the latest release from Haley Fohr’s alter ego Jackie Lynn. Plus music from all the best new releases form the ladies.
Let’s get comfortable and rock out!

Today we sit in a patch of sun, listen to new music from Dirty Projectors, Ada Lea, Half Waif, Anna Burch, Why Bonnie, Locate S 1,  and Sorry, read reflections from the 1665 Plague, ponder my great grandmother’s mincemeat recipe (tried November 1894), and remember the musicians we’ve lost so far to COVID-19.
We’ve got jellybean updates, an extremely low stakes guessing game and two hours of music for your earholes.
