Parlor Walls
This is part 3 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 O-W (no X, Y, or Z artists made the list this time around).
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.
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!
Looking back at music from the first half off 2020 that we've been enjoying... part 1 of 2!
It’s been a few years since last we saw Parlor Walls here at BTR Live Studio. In that time, the band has trimmed back to a duo (guitarist/vocalist/force of nature Alyse Lamb and drummer/magician/synth dark lord Chris Mulligan), focusing their awesome power on a seething, pulsating, and even more stunning sort of post-punk/art rock. The band dropped by Serious Business Music ahead of the release of their latest record for an intense session. Watch this one closely. Heavy Tongue by Parlor Walls is available now from Northern Spy. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.
