Lisa Prank is the musical alter ego of Seattle-based songwriter Robin Edwards, backed by the ever-reliable rhythm section of her trusty drum machine. The Lisa Frank-nod in the band’s name hints at the colorful vibe and nostalgic touches of the music, which draws heavily on pop-punk and garage rock to convey Robin’s earnest tales. She stopped by Serious Business Music in DUBMO, Brooklyn, to pour her heart out for us in this episode of BTR Live Studio. Adult Teen is available now from Father/Daughter Records with a limited cassette release on Miscreant Records. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.

Give us a listen, and see for yourself!      
I've been doing this show for almost seven years, and there's only a few episodes left! So I've decided to play some of my favorite tracks from way back...

And a ton of straight-up classics from bands that I've played over and over like NUNPARTY, SCOTT DEADELUS, and SWIMSUIT! I wish I could play even more, but so much is lost in time, you wouldn't even believe it!

Toronto’s Greys return to BTR Live Studio. Last time around, lead singer Shehzaad was a bit under the weather and had to have some tour buddies fill in on vocals, so for their second time around, the band brought the full rock action.

Outer Heaven is available now from Carpark Records. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.
