Shadow Monster is the Bushwick, Brooklyn-based duo of Gillian Visco and John Swanson who play a potent sort of grunge-inflected indie rock. With heavy lyrical themes dealing with loss, depression, and isolation, there’s a tension just under the surface of their music that explodes into a cathartic big-riffed, hair-whipping frenzy. The band dropped by Serious Business Music to give us a taste of their awesomeness in this session. Punching Bag is out now from Dadstache Records. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.

Yeah man. Life is a rollercoaster ride. Sometimes we have to deal with the bad for us to appreciate what we have. Some people will never get it, no matter what happens, good or bad.

Lifts you up even higher when you're feeling great. So let this upbeat mix keep you feeling upbeat and smiling. Let's go!!!

ESSi is a Brooklyn-based duo with a deceptively huge sound.

The band dropped by Serious Business Music in Brooklyn for this super exciting session! Vital Creatures is available now from Ramp Local. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.

Motherhood is the Fredericton, NB, Canada-based trio of Brydon Crain, Penelope Stevens, and Adam Sipkema. A (rightfully) self-proclaimed trio of “deep-thinkin’ rippers,” they share an impressively high level of musicality and intensity that comes thru on record and truly shines in a live environment. With a twisting, propulsive sort of artiness to their heavy, HEAVY rock, the band manages to produce a gnarly, twangy, fuzzy sort of new sound without ever feeling like too much. They dropped by Serious Business Music in Brooklyn to blow our minds for this session. Dear Bongo is available now from Forward Music Group. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.

You see the title? Yeah, I'm in Oakland, California now. Stopped in LA first last week, then headed over to Vegas to hangout with the legendary Biz Markie, came back to LA the next day and had a meeting with another legend, Nasty Ness. We were sitting down talking, Ness gets a text that Kobe Bryant passed away. Our last day in LA was a rollercoaster ride. So sad. R.I.P. to Kobe Bryant & his daughter and all the other passengers. We left Ness' house to go eat some great seafood at the Drunken Crab, returned back to the hotel, I took a little nap and then got ready for DJ Statik Selectah's birthday party. It was a great time. I met up with model and singer "I Am The Dan". We wound up meeting The Game, Jadakiss and I bumped into Young Guru. After LA we flew to Oakland. Now I'm bringing you a dope mix, and this mix will never be forgotten, straight outta Oakland. Check it out..Love who you love. Stay positive. You just never know what life will bring you.
RIP KOBE. Make sure to follow us on Instagram @BTRtoday.

Jelly Kelly began life as a side project for Monogold frontman Keith Kelly, but quickly grew into its own beast. With a similar musical tendency (the presence of Monogold powerhouse drummer Jared Apuzzo - rototoms and all - probably helps with that) but a different angle that sees Kelly’s vocals opening up for a more full-throated delivery than that falsetto we’ve come to know and love over the years, Jelly Kelly is a young band full of experienced players (Nicolas Dube, Dom Bodo round out the quartet) having fun making weird sounds. The effect is an effortless, cool, catchy blend of post-punky hook-ridden indie rock that doesn’t want to fit neatly in any genre, and we’re here for it. The band dropped by Serious Business Music in Brooklyn to give us a taste of their brand new music. Fresh Paint by Jelly Kelly is available now. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.

Field Mouse have been a favorite band here at BTRtoday for several years now - while much has changed for the band (members, cities, styles of music) what’s still maintained all this time is the massively enjoyable musical chemistry stemming from Rachel Browne’s sweet vocals and Andrew Futral’s wily guitar antics. The addition of Zoe Browne on vocals adds a layer of perfect harmonies that only siblings can produce in just that way, rounded out by a super tight rhythm section, the band is operating to its full potential these days, with perfectly hooky, emotional songs that we just can’t get enough of. They joined us at Serious Business Music in Brooklyn for this session. Meaning by Field Mouse is available now from Topshelf Records. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.

Reichel’s hooky, melodic songs and honest lyrics take the best of punk and indie rock to make for a catchy good time.
