Dinowalrus has been melting faces and brains in the Brooklyn DIY scene for almost a decade now. Led by vocalist/guitarist Pete Feigenbaum, the project has shifted lineups and sounds over the years, currently finding itself as a four piece with drummer Max Tucker, bassist/vocalist Meaghan Omega, and synth player Dan Peskin. The band draws on synthpop and British psych/garage among others, yet crafts its own distinct sound. While they’ve worked with labels in the past, the band self-produced and released their latest effort and continues to push their heady vibes forward in the local and international scenes. They returned to Serious Business Music for this fresh episode of BTR Live Studio! Fairweather by Dinowalrus is available now. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.

Kuroma has long been the dense, psych-laced pop project of Hank Sullivant, based in Athens, Georgia, who has played in notable acts MGMT and The Whigs. On the project’s latest release, they keep the Beach Boy-influenced vibes going, but add a new twist: inspired by a recent religious awakening of sorts, the trippy sounds are taken even further into the spiritual realm. Here, Hank joins us for an intimate, solo take on his music at Serious Business Music in DUMBO, Brooklyn. The Dark Horse Rides Again is available now.

Breanna Barbara is a Brooklyn-based musician, but don’t let the geography throw you -- her music is steeped in southern/blues rock traditions, as seen through the sweat-drenched eyes of New York City. Howling, yelping, and rockin’ with a furious intensity -- even at slower tempos, like a psychedelic waltz -- Barbara is fast becoming a force to reckon with in the local scene. Mirage Dreams by Breanna Barbara is available now. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview:
