This is part 2 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 E to N.
It's my last show of 2020, so let's finish strong! More fave tracks from this year plus some thoughts on 2020 and plans for 2021. Lots of great stuff on today's ep.
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.
The holidays are closing in. Some more favorite tracks from 2020 to listen as you do whatever it is you are doing. Music from Honey Cutt, Ryan Pollie, Adeline Hotel and more. One more show between this one and the new year -- let's go!
Oh boy, it's that time of year again.  We say goodbye to 2020 and say hello to 4 weeks of Best of picks.  Week 1 has triple shots, a double shot and a lot of good tunes to welcome in December.  Let's get to it!
Halfway through September -- we start with a throwback block and close out with a new single from Delicate Steve. Much more to hear in the middle -- check it out!
Looking back at music from the first half off 2020 that we've been enjoying... part 1 of 2!
Songs I love to start this next journey around the sun.
Listeners, thank you for fourteen years. Artists, thank you. BTR colleagues, thank you for everything. Stay healthy, keep creating. Signing off -  Maia
Honey Cutt is a Boston-based trio led by Kaley Honeycutt. With surfy touches on their dreamy indie rock sound, the band sounds right at home on the Kanine Records roster, which tends to love an upbeat snare and catchy vocal melodies. The band dropped by Serious Business Music while in town for the New Colossus Music Festival, which ended up being our very last session in the studio for the time being. Coasting by Honey Cutt is available now from Kanine Records. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.
Say goodbye to the bad vibes of May, and hello to June where things do a 180 and we are feeling the flow yet again.  Double shots, indie tunes, new stuff! I'm excited, are you?
