Greetings, everybody! Welcome to the Music Digest’s “Best of the ‘Gest 2013, Part 2” Countdown! This week, the gang each picks their own favorite three records from the Music Digest this year. I don’t want to spoil it for you, but I think you’re gonna really be surprised by our picks. So push play, and get ready for a real rock and roll (and folk) thrill ride through the finish! Merry Xmas!
On this wintry edition of God Bless Weirdmerica we have new tracks from the very cool I Need You Bad compilation- the weirdest ones, of course. Plus, we’re reminding everyone that Julianna Barwick had one of the best albums of 2013, and it was certainly New Weird American. Enjoy the show, and don’t forget to follow BTR on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, Pinterest, and Instagram!

Black Friday is a deeply immoral ‘holiday.’ Instead of shopping for junk, please spend time with your loved ones today! It’s the Rock Show on BTR!

It’s an amazing show we have for you this week… It’s Overnight Sensation, only on BTR!
For our first episode sponsored by Urban Outfitters, we have a very special July 4th “best of” mix. Here we present you with reflections on the albums of our prior 10 shows, and put together our favorite songs from the records past. Perhaps feelings have changed, maybe we’re stuck in our old ways, there’s only one way to find out. COMPILATION MIX, ENJOY.
Today we review Jessica Pratt’s self-titled debut album that came out November 12th on Birth Records, a label Tim Presley (of White Fence) created just to release this LP. The 11-song, 41 minute record is a pleasant stream of warm, acoustic, fingerpicked melodies and hauntingly poignant lyrics reminiscent of female singer-songwriters of decades passed.
