Las Rosas on BTR Live Studio, sponsored by Nikon
Las Rosas (featuring Jose Boye from the band Harlem) is a new Brooklyn psych trio making catchy, hooky pop tunes. Though still a pretty fresh project, the band seem to have tapped into one of those classic formulas that works exceptionally well. They stopped by to play some songs and chat with guest host Travis Harrison about their music. Pay close attention for a pro tip in the fine art of bottle opening.

Artists that we wouldn’t have heard of or listened to had it not been for the show. And, no worries! Pat and Matt will be carrying on The Music Digest torch and opening a new great chapter in the show’s legacy.

This is the 6th album Holly Golightly has released under this moniker, but she has put out over 20 LPs, collectively with different bands and as a solo artist. This particular album is very iconic country rock, with witty lyrics, and lots of washboard. Think gritty knock-your-teeth-out honky tonk swagger. Enjoy.

BTR TOP TEN
Today we talk about the latest LP from Philadelphia based band The War on Drugs. Lost in the Dream, released on March 18th by Secretly Canadian, is the first album from the group since 2011’s Slave Ambient. Melding grassroots American indie rock, psychedelia, and shoegaze, this timeless record offers a lot of good grooves in the vein of Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Sting, and ‘80s production in general. It is very referential, but does transcend those influences at points through compelling chord changes and interesting song structures. Definitely worth checking out.
Our backyard sessions from SXSW continue today with a longstanding favorite songwriter here at BTR, Tom Brosseau!

Time for the ladies to take the stage!
Though a short album, Shipa Ray’s It’s All Self Fellatio EP, released on October 21st, covers lots of ground in it’s four tracks. Her velvet voice, full of expression, ties together musical shifts as the instrumentation touches upon several different genres including blues, motown, punk, and indie rock. The EP came about as a request from Nick Cave, who she toured with last year. He recognized her talent and so do we. Tune in to hear more.

It had been 44 years since psych folk artist Linda Perhacs released an album. But the inspiration she drew from nature and the cult following devoted to her first LP, awakened her inclination for songwriting. Released on March 4th by Asthmatic Kitty Records, The Soul Of All Natural Things, revisits Perhacs’ 70s era new age tendencies and couples them with modern production. The album is an exploration of beautiful tones, the elements of the universe, and 70-year-old Perhacs’ spiritual worldview.

Gentleman, please clear the floor. It's time for the ladies to take the stage.
Today we review the fourth mixtape from 18-year-old up-and-comer Tink. Self-released on January 10th, Winter’s Diary 2 exhibits a maturity and songwriting ability that’s rare in someone so young. It’s an intimate return to her vulnerable R&B tendencies and showcases smooth nostalgic 90s style. A versatile performer, Tink has proven she’s both comfortable and great at singing, rapping, and songwriting. She’s definitely one of the many talents coming out of Chicago to note.
Gardens and Villa perform songs from their new album, Dunes, out now on Secretly Canadian!

Today we review BUM, the third LP from the French band Cheveu. The album, released February 6th by Born Bad, is a bit of a musical rollercoaster. The band takes everything with a grain of salt, adding a good dose of humor to an eclectic mix of different genres. Musically proficient, Cheveu offers a slew of surprises, great grooves, and a large collection of variations on rock, synth-punk, and more. This band is not to be categorized in any certain way; they’re definitely unique. Tune in for more.

Today we review the sophomore LP from Angel Olsen, Burn Your Fire For No Witness, which came out on February 18th through Jagjaguwar records. It is her first release with a full backing band and it’s obvious her sound has progressed into territory much edgier than her folk singer-songwriter roots. The album is sonically pleasing, full of twang, candor, vulnerability, and aggression. It’s explorative and promising, it should interesting to see how the full band’s sound continues to develop.

Let's listen to some of the best music on BTR, shall we?
Today we discuss shine, the January 21st release from sample master Asano Ryuhei, who creates under the moniker lee. It is a 22-track LP that pulls samples from an array of nostalgic genres. The beats are chill, warm, and skillfully arranged. Surprises are scattered throughout the album as lee seamlessly shifts from dub samples to a soul samples to rock samples and back, with tonal accents tying everything together. Definitely a worthwhile listen.

He recently salvaged old demo CDrs and cassettes to put together this LP, which he released on January 18th via his label Castle Face. The Providence band long broke up, but their hard-hitting, loud and aggressive take on garage rock lives on through this release.

Talented ladies on the show! Including some great new music from Sharon Jones and The Dap Kings!
Time to revert back to our solid show format - reacting to new albums after about a week's worth of "digestion." The EP we're discussing today is Destroyer's album Five Spanish Songs, which came out via Merge on November 26th. The five song release is actually covers of the Spanish singer Antonio Luque and his band Señor Chinarro. Dan Bejar wanted to have fun in the studio, make something instantly gratifying, and sing in Spanish. This was the result.
One of our new favorite bands, Coastgaard, performs live in studio for BTR!
We kick off 2014 with a brand new exclusive in studio session with Jay Arner!
