DJ Emily is counting down her favorite albums played on the show this year. 25 of the best female musicians out there are featured in the mix. H. Kink, Say Sue Me, Joslyn and the Sweet Compression and Charly Bliss are just a little of what's in store.
These are the albums our podcast hosts and producers listened to the most.
We're still feeling thankful for all the great music that's been bestowed upon us this year! So, we're giving thanks for all of those plus our current favorite albums. Enjoy it all in the mix today.
Esther Rose... swoon. Playing tracks from her sophomore album You Made It This Far in the artist spotlight. Of course lots of other talented ladies are in the mix today as well. Enjoy this hour long set.
Always hard to get back at it after a long weekend. Hopefully, the two hours of music on The Tryst will help you through the day. From new bands like Skux to old favorites like Versus and Oh Sees, there is something for everyone in today's set.
From 10 to one we are ready to do it again. This week the number one artist is Versus and their new album Ex Voto (they dropped their first EP back in 1993).

Let's stretch this summer and weekend out as long as we can.  Happy Labor Day!  Happy Sunday! Happy end of the summer/start of the school year!  Whatever you are trying to enjoy, enjoy it for one more day and 2 hours of awesome tunes!
Tunes from the new album from H. Kink are back in the mix. You'll hear Ada Lea, our most played artist of the week. Plus, a little alt-country set featuring Purple Mountains.

Powerful yet soft female vocals reign this week.
On August 7th, Drag City announced the death of one of its artists, David Berman. Berman fronted Silver Jews and his honest and raw lyrics built a cult following (which included the BTR Staff). Today on The Alt-Country Show, we are paying tribute to him by featuring tracks from his latest project, Purple Mountains. The project dropped its first and only album less than a month before his death. RIP to one of the greats.
