SondorBlue is a super tight pop band from Charleston, South Carolina, which they endearingly refer to as “Chucktown.” Though they don’t share the same endless solos and stoned vibes as jam bands, they do tend to operate in a similar fashion, touring relentlessly and honing their musical craft for a growing legion of fans. These four super positive friends are aiming high, and with their musical sensibilities and skills, they just might have a shot of getting there. They stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO, Brooklyn to share some tunes with us.

Today we're taking a trip down memory lane to kick off the first of our 2017 holiday broadcasts! On today's broadcast you'll hear from Charly Bliss, Emilyn Brodsky, Gracie And Rachel, and Rose Cousins.
Charly Bliss is one of those bands that immediately brings to mind a slew of favorites, especially for those of us who had their musical awakening in the 90s. Reminiscent of the awesomely fuzzy, poppy goodness of Veruca Salt, The Breeders, That Dog, and Letters To Cleo, the band proudly identifies their genre as “bubblegrunge” (was that a word back then? It’s likely, but either way it’s super appropriate for them right here and now) and does a killer job of nailing that vibe and improving upon it, updating the sound and look for the 2010s while still conveying that feeling of throwing a party in your teenage bedroom. Eve, Spencer, Sam, and Dan have a really great thing going on, and they stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO, Brooklyn, for this session. Guppy by Charly Bliss is available now from Barsuk Records. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.
It's another new music catchup week on the show, as we check out tons of new stuff from Field Medic, La Louma, OCS, Lapêche, and much, much more!

Jane Weaver is a musician from Liverpool, England. As someone who runs a record label and plays in several groups, she is certainly no stranger to collaboration, but as a songwriter and performer she’s uniquely autonomous and largely responsible for everything you’ll hear on her solo output -- though friends do lend a hand (or instrument) here and there as needed. Jane possesses an otherworldly voice, uniquely suited to her distinctly light yet powerful style which blends perfectly with both the electronics and traditional instruments employed in her songs. She stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO, Brooklyn for this intimate look at her music. The Architect EP is available now from Fire Records. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.

The Liza Colby Sound slaps you in the face with true blue raw rock 'n' roll!
Gabrielle Marlena is a folk singer who has moved from Connecticut to Montreal to Brooklyn. Her sound and songs, influenced by these moves and her life experiences, come together in a way that is both introspective but relatable while also being super easy to listen to. BTRtoday caught Gabrielle at Two Boots in Williamsburg, Brooklyn for a performance of her song "Percolate." Gabrielle Marlena’s debut album, Good Music For You, is now available
Liza Colby’s theme song would be raw rock ‘n’ roll and her superpower is pure, strong and dangerous female sexuality.

Hailing from the rich cultural breeding ground of Philadelphia, Joy Again is a quintet right at that vital point in their career between just starting out and truly figuring out their sound - in this case, that means their songs shift from fast and punky to experimental and atmospheric folk at times - but what’s clear already is that they’ve got some big ideas, musical chops, and a lot of energy to put to good use. We were psyched to have them stop by Serious Business Music in DUMBO, Brooklyn to get a look at them as they work towards their debut full length. “Kim” + “On A Farm” single is available now from Never Grow Up Records.

Jessica Jalbert is a Canadian musician based in Edmonton, Alberta, and the driving force behind Faith Healer.

Big Bliss is a Brooklyn band formed in 2015 by brothers Cory (drums) and Tim (vocals, guitar) Race, along with bassist Wallace May. The trio blasts out a furious sort of post-punk and indie rock that draws a bit on shoegaze (think perhaps a little Mission Of Burma here, a little Interpol there), and have been playing shows almost constantly since their inception. We finally got them to take a breather and stop by Serious Business Music in DUMBO, Brooklyn to show us what they’ve been up to. The “Fortune” single is available now from Exit Stencil Recordings.

Hyukoh is a juggernaut of the Korean indie rock world. Taking on K-Pop and proving that rock n’ roll and other international sounds are welcome in the pop culture scene best known for sugary sweet pop, they’ve climbed the charts and garnered considerable critical acclaim. While their retro-leaning fashion sense nods to something else, musically they run the gamut from gentle indie rock and folk to hard-hitting punk and rap touches. Extremely versatile musicians, and multi-lingual singers, Hyukoh is set for even further world domination. While in NYC on their first ever North American tour, they stopped by to share their music with us in this session, recorded live at Serious Business Music in DUMBO. Hyukoh’s 23 is available now. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.

Bringing you the best new indie albums in one spot. Turn up the music for the BTR Top 10 countdown. We'll dive into the most played albums on the site based on what your favorite DJs are playing.
Normally we’d write some sort of semi-thoughtful description of the band here, but in this case we’ll let their Facebook bio do the heavy lifting: “sad13 (sad thirteen) is a cyborg dog astrally projected from the recent past to save the middle school dance. sadie dupuis is sad13.” That tells you pretty much everything you need to know. Also, they’re pop songs -- just as sweet, sugary, and satisfying as the stuff you heard on the radio growing up, but much less terrible in the sense that they’re written in a way that takes on the negative portrayals of women we’ve grown way too accustomed to hearing and turns it on its head. We’d expect nothing less of Speedy Ortiz’s Sadie Dupuis, who’s earned a reputation as one of the best songwriters around these days. She brought the band by Serious Business Music in DUMBO, Brooklyn, to share some tunes. Sad13’s Slugger is available now on Carpark Records. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.

BTRtoday Music Director, Lottie (aka ‘Ms. Lottie’) joins us this week as we listen to some of the tracks that end the new releases we added to our music library this week. What makes a final track a final track? How does Ms. Lottie pick the music she brings in? What’s Bryan’s new single sound like? Will we answer any of these questions? Spoiler alert: maybe.

Seth Applebaum (also of Brooklyn psych-surf freaks, The Mad Doctors) is apparently pretty prolific when it comes to experimental, groovy, weirdo jams. Ghost Funk Orchestra is more no-wave than the funk in their name may imply, but either way, they’re definitely all party.

Grab a stein of beer and throw on your finest lederhosen! It's time to celebrate Oktoberfest, BTR style on the edition of Roadside Assistance.

gobbinjr (lowercase, despite what autocorrect will tell you) is the musical project of Madison, Wisconsin-native-but-currently-NYC-livin’ songwriter, Emma Witmer. Facebook says that her middle name is Jerk, but we don’t think it is. We also don’t really think she’s a jerk, even when her songs get kind of mean. How much of a jerk can you be if you name your band after your first bong? Exactly. Witmer’s music -- recorded on her own -- is pretty personal, but live she’s got a whole band to give the songs that extra energy and they stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO, Brooklyn, to play for us. Vom Night and Shea Forever are available now.

A Giant Dog is a giant step in rock 'n' roll--listen to their newest album on this week's episode & a chat w/ frontwoman Sabrina!
Chicago trio Dream Version -- Eric Brummitt, Alec Jensen, and Michael Kunik -- have been perfecting their poppy, post-punk-inspired indie rock since 2013. Keeping instrumentation to the classic power trio setup gives the band a lot of room to play and experiment with their idea of pop music, pushing things further into the arty, experimental territory that makes them feel a bit more in line with The Fall than The Kinks. The music is deceptively smart in it’s simplicity, and the lyrics manage to turn personal questions and conflicts into rock anthems. The band stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO to share their music with us. Fight Fair by Dream Version is available now. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.
Fall is here. New tunes are here. Extended double shot is here. DJ Drew is here (duh). You are here! Lets do the damn thing!

Domino Kirke has returned. Her music career began early when she was “discovered” at just 17 and over the years she’s taken several turns through various projects and genres that have ultimately led to her current endeavor and a new record.  Her first release in 5 years -- and first under her own name -- it arrives with a heavy dose of inspiration from her friend and musical collaborator, Luke Temple. It’s worth noting that Domino comes from quite a unique family of talented folks: her father is the drummer from Free and Bad Company, her mother runs a SoHo boutique, and her sisters Jemima and Lola are both successful actresses. Domino stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO, Brooklyn, with guitarist Jen Turner to share this intimate take on some of her new music.

This week’s slate of new music leads Bryan and J to talk about many things relevant to the actual music, but also leads to tangents on how to not pack books when moving, game shows we can’t fully remember, cereals both for breakfast and dessert, the differences between glockenspiels and xylophones, Carnegie Hall and unions, … and oops, they say “homonym” when they mean “homophone!”

This is all evident in their latest batch of music and this session, recorded live at Serious Business Music in DUMBO, Brooklyn during their summer 2017 tour.

Drew St. Aubin is a guy who was a longtime fixture of the NYC music scene before he left to live in New Hampshire a little while back. Unfortunately, an accident has left him pretty banged up, but a bunch of his friends are trying to help out with medical costs with a GoFundMe campaign and a couple of benefit shows that are in the works. Both StereoactiveNYC and BTR have a long history with Drew, so we’ve got a whole bunch of music that features his multiple talents and some stories to go with them.

David Nance is a classic rocker. We don’t mean that he plays classic rock, but he DOES rock in the way that most bands these days can’t, or at least don’t bother to. Like, he embodies it. In that long haired, feedback-slinging, getting into the groove, cymbal-smashing vibe, custom-made for tape hiss freaks and vinyl crackle aficionados. Music to get into and get down to. We like it a whole lot. The band dropped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO to shake it up for this session! Negative Boogie is available now from Ba Da Bing Records.

  Chicago trio Dream Version -- Eric Brummitt, Alec Jensen, and Michael Kunik -- have been perfecting their poppy, post-punk-inspired indie rock since 2013. Keeping instrumentation to the classic power trio setup gives the band a lot of room to play and experiment with their idea of pop music, pushing things further into the arty, experimental territory that makes them feel a bit more in line with The Fall than The Kinks. The music is deceptively smart in it’s simplicity, and the lyrics manage to turn personal questions and conflicts into rock anthems. The band stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO to share their music with us.   Fight Fair by Dream Version is available now.  
Center yourself by pressing play on Native Sun’s new single “Palindrome.”

Brian Hill is an ever-evolving work of art in progress. From a brief time in the modeling world to playing guitar in the studio and live with bands like Chairlift and Tamaryn, the revelation of Hill’s own project has been a long time coming. Stemming from a collaboration with friends (members of Froth, Cherry Glazerr, etc) to a rotating cast of players in the form of the Noh Starrs, his music has undeniable nods to 60’s and 70’s New York City rock, folk, and psychedelia. Known for immersive, memorable performances, Brian brought his gang to our live room at Serious Business Music in DUMBO, Brooklyn, for this fairly reserved, yet thoroughly impressive performance. And The Noh Starrs will be available August 18, 2017 on Modern Sky.

On today’s Garbage Garage we’ve got bands playing live in NYC, plus new tracks from new favorites Shannen Moser and Hollow Everdaze!
Van Dammes’ music freezes hell over. With their robust guitar solos and wild drumbeats, they reach into the deepest, darkest parts of their listeners' souls. The four-piece garage band hail from Helsinki, Finland and pull inspiration from every era of punk, satisfying each and every desire for any punk rock fan. The group formed in Brussels, Belgium in 2013 and have already released two EPs, The VD EP and Better Than Sex. This May, they were back at it again with another EP entitled Vild Days. Currently, they’re touring the EU. With Vild Days, Van Dammes dig deep into the oldest roots of punk, excavating the essence of The Ramones. They match sing-a-long ready chants and bouncy melodies with distorted guitars, post-punk-like synth and guttural vocals (which are oddly sultry on account of their Finnish accents). BTRtoday chatted with Juho Talja and Markus Kujawa, the singers for Van Dammes. Check out the entire interview below. BTRtoday (BTR): How did you meet and form Van Dammes? Juho Talja (JT): We all are good friends, so we knew each other for a long time before Van Dammes. We've also been playing in some of the same bands for ages. Markus lives in Brussels and this one time I travelled there to meet him we went to see this Swedish band called Holograms, which played at a legendary punk venue called DNA. We were really impressed about their aesthetics and after a few drinks we agreed to form a new band, which is now known as Van Dammes. BTR: Why the name Van Dammes? JT: Well, the band was formed in Brussels and there happens to be a statue of Jean-Claude van Damme, who happens to be from Belgium, that we accidentally saw. Markus Kujawa (MK): And for a moment it felt like the best idea of the world. Now it's too late to take it back. BTR: Who are some of your musical inspirations? JT: Pet Shop Boys. It was my first favorite band and it's still one of the best. They know how to write the perfect melody to a song. For the same reasons I also like the old stuff of Weezer very much. MK: Pet Shop Boys was also my first favorite band back in the early 1990's. Our sound is of course completely different from theirs, but maybe melodically people can recognize some similarities between PSB and us. JT: Of course there are also some punk and garage bands that have inspired us. For my part, I'd say [the previously mentioned] Holograms, The Spits, The Hives, Bikini Kill, Dune Rats (who we did some shows with about two years ago) and Death From Above 1979. MK: Ah yes, I wish Van Dammes had made The Hives' "Come On.” BTR: Why do you sing in English? JT: Singing in English gives us the opportunity to tour around Europe and even the world. Because of that we also have this opportunity to do interviews for example with US media outlets. If we sang in Finnish it would always be only the same Finnish towns where we could play. MK: And there are like three towns and one newspaper in Finland… [laughs] BTR: Tell me about the latest album Vild Days, what was the creative process like? MK: The songs came quite quickly. Normally it's Juho and I who write the songs but this time our drummer also made his contribution. His song is the one about drummers by the way. Also the recording process was very fast, which is very typical for us. However, the mixing process was very long due to our producer's own (terrible) rap music projects and some record label issues. In fact, our former label is called Vild Records and they actually declined to release this EP. So after finding our current label, we decided to pay a little "tribute" to our former label. We are still on good terms with them though. BTR: What are your live shows like? MK: Fast and furious. We try not to play too long of sets. It's good to leave the crowd a bit hungry, know what I mean? I guess our shows are quite messy. Anything can happen. I like that our bass player is in the middle of the stage, and Juho and I sing on both sides of him. JT: Our shows are like running 400-meter hurdles [1/4 of a mile]. You have to go full speed from the beginning and cross many barriers to get to the finish line. MK: Sometimes you win and sometimes you stumble. BTR: What should we expect for the future of Van Dammes? How about a US tour anytime soon? MK: Recently we were actually asked to tour the East Coast of the US, but I think there are already some Euro dates booked for then. It would be really cool to play in America at some point though. We’re also prepping to record our fourth album. There are already a couple of new songs so I guess the next record will be out in the beginning of 2018. JT: Playing in the US would actually be really nice. Hey—all the active garage/punk booking agents reading this, just give us a call and we'll be there. [laughs] BTR: Is there something you guys like to do on your free time that isn't music related? JT: I'm really into European football, or soccer as you say in the US. I know everything about it and play it myself in lower levels. I'm also really interested in cryptozoology, which is about searching and studying the animals whose existence or survival is disputed or unsubstantiated. MK: I'm into plane spotting and weird languages.

Imaginary Tricks reflects the mad, musical world of Queens-based Mike Visser (previously of the California band Frank Jordan). With his distinct take on pop and arty indie rock, Visser benefits live from the counter-balance of Harlan Muir on keys and backing vocals along with a full rhythm section, turning the shimmery psych riffs into full-on epic jams. The band dropped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO, Brooklyn to show us just how the songs can come alive. Skommel is available now from Friendship Fever.

In this episode, Bryan and J explore the important topics of whether Alan Alda has ever been in a Wes Anderson movie (he should be), why going to rock shows in Manhattan sucks now, whether the ten year cycle for nostalgia will be defeated by how niche everything got in the late aughts, and so much more. They’ll also listen to a lot of great music along the way… and so will you if you choose to do so. And you should.
On Garbage Garage celebrate Canada Day with tracks from Canadian bands Broken Social Scene, The Besnard Lakes, Land of Talk and more!
Charly Bliss is one of those bands that immediately brings to mind a slew of favorites, especially for those of us who had their musical awakening in the 90s. Reminiscent of the awesomely fuzzy, poppy goodness of Veruca Salt, The Breeders, That Dog, and Letters To Cleo, the band proudly identifies their genre as “bubblegrunge” (was that a word back then? It’s likely, but either way it’s super appropriate for them right here and now) and does a killer job of nailing that vibe and improving upon it, updating the sound and look for the 2010s while still conveying that feeling of throwing a party in your teenage bedroom. Eve, Spencer, Sam, and Dan have a really great thing going on, and they stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO, Brooklyn, for this session. Guppy by Charly Bliss is available now from Barsuk Records.

The Nashville-based brothers, bandmates, producers, and co-songwriters Michael Ford, Jr., and Ben Ford cut their teeth in the music industry with their previous band, The Apache Relay, which focused on going big with both sound and personnel. With Airpark, they’ve shifted their focus to simpler, tighter, but still highly impactful pop music, which they say is “inspired by minimalism, melody and groove-heavy percussion.” See and hear for yourself in this session, recorded live at Serious Business Music in DUMBO, Brooklyn. Airpark’s debut, Early Works, Volume 1, is available now. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.
