The Beths are a rock band based in Auckland, New Zealand, founded by lead singer/songwriter Elizabeth Stokes and guitarist Jonathan Pearce. Blending cool, catchy riff rock with fun vocals -- from all four band members, no less -- the band has a likeably addictive sound. Jonathan and Liz recently invited us in for a look at their makeshift home studio, and chatted with Maia about their new album, and what life may look like for the band this year. Jump Rope Gazers will be released July 10 from Carpark Records. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.
Arthur Moon is a project led by NY-based musician Lora-Faye Åshuvud, whose boundary-pushing performance and vocals style blends well with an experimental sort of electronic dance music to create a hazy, unsettling, yet inviting take on pop. The band dropped by Serious Business Music in Brooklyn to give us this intimate look at their impeccable song stylings. Arthur Moon’s self-titled LP is available now. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.

Stay on point. That's it, that's all I'm gonna say today about this pandemic. Stay focus. Control your urges. Nothing wrong with staying home and having a good time with your family and friends. Oh yeah, lol, and wearing a mask don't make you soft. Not wearing one don't make you tough neither. Come on! Common sense seems like the best solution right now. Don't get over-confident. Ok, now let's rock. Party, BBQ in the back of the house. Let's go!!
Around the world we're all struggling with this PANDEMIC! I had to put that in capital letters just to emphasize how crazy the past two months have been.

Anyway, thank god for music. Music can take your mind off of many things. Sit back and relax, or bop ya head, or dance to the rhythms. Some good World Hip-Hop music. Let's go!!!
