It's the second to last Saturday in 2012! And the Saturday before the holidays! That means we're going extra hard on the show today- we're doing our first half of all the best tracks from the year! So stay tuned for some awesome Japandroids, Veronica Falls, and King Tuff! And don't forget to check out BTR on Facebook and Twitter!
Counting down the most Rockin' holiday hits to get you in the mood for all these Rockin' upcoming holidays... It's the Rock Show, only on BTR!
It's CMJ week in New York!!! It's been a very busy CMJ for BTR. And while all of our showcases are done, we've had an amazing time, and we're going to start the show off with music from bands from all of our showcases. And that's not all the CMJ we have in store for you. The rest of the bands featured on the show today have showcases tonight! So if you're in New York, be sure to get out there and see some live music (after following BTR on Facebook and Twitter, of course)!
90 minutes of wonderful indie music on BTR this Tuesday!
Today on the show we have ALL new songs! That definitely hasn't happened for awhile! There's so much great new music out, we had to make sure to squeeze it all on today. And don't forget to check out BTR on Facebook and Twitter, and also check out our Discovery Artist, Sleepy Wonder!
What's the sound of style? Well, it's a lot more glam than one hand clapping. In fact, as we've discussed Sew & Tell before, there is a ton of crossover between fashion and music, designers and rockers. For today's show, I got to talk with Susan Domelsmith, a Brooklyn jeweler who's also part of the all-girl Brooklyn band Open Ocean. Susan's jewelry line, Dirty Librarian Chains (best name ever?), is a beautifully tangled, bold array of pieces, each one made from repurposed vintage materials. From elegantly twisted chain necklaces, to simple, sculptural rings, these pieces are 100% rock 'n roll, and it's easy to see why the line has caught the attention of musicians like Debbie Harry and Vivian Girls. Susan's own music is no less innovative - she contributes keyboards to two projects: the throw-back punk band Open Ocean, and the experimental electronic pop duo Time Reveals. On today's show, Susan talks about the evolution of DLC, sourcing vintage materials, making music with fashion friends, and some of her favorite NYC libraries. Plus! An awesome playlist (what else would you expect?) featuring music from Open Ocean, Wild Nothing, Rubblebucket, Bill Fay, Bob Mould and more. So turn up the volume and settle in for some seriously stylish sound, with Sew & Tell on BTR!
There are some major musical highlights on the show today.  First off, check out this brand new track from tUnE-yArDs, ?uestlove, Angelique Kidjo and Akua Naru.  That's a powerhouse lineup and a powerhouse song!  We've also got new tracks from Hot Chip and Jukebox the Ghost!!  And don't forget to check out BTR on Facebook and Twitter for up-to-the-minute updates.
"I don't think you're ready for this Rock Show / I don't think you're ready for this Rock Show / I don't think you're ready for this / 'Cuz my Rock Show's too bootylicious for u" - Beyonce on the Rock Show on BTR
This week's Saturday show has fantastic new tracks from Wild Nothing, Sharon Van Etten, and Young Magic.  We've also got a super cool track from our Discovery Artist, The Fundimensionals.  Don't forget to check out BTR on Facebook and Twitter for fresh new updates.
"What's up?" "Not much, you?" "Oh, I'm just listening to that Rock Show on BTR." "What's 'Rock Show'?" "Oh it's this really great radio show on BTR, all the best rock music you could ever hear in one easy place!" "Sounds awesome, bro. How can I listen to it?" "Just go to BTR today and type in the "rock show" and you're in-- it's as easy as that." "That's rad. I am going to listen now, thanks!" "OK cool. See you tonight?" "Yep!" "Love you." "Love you too, bye." "Bye!"
