Nasimiyu is a Brooklyn-based musician whose style has evolved over the years from her time in New Orleans making music to her deeply personal, experimental pop. Last seen on BTR Live Studio with the fun and creative Baeb Rxxth, Nasimiyu returns with a very special At Home performance, debuting new music from her upcoming record – the first in 7 years under her own name – with a unique solo performance utilizing live loops and samples and her stunning vocals. Watch Nasimiyu’s exclusive performance of “Practice” below.
Photo Ops is the LA-based project of Terry Price. Following a move from Nashville, his songwriting shifted towards a more personal, folk-tinged sort of pop. What remains is his super-attuned sense of melody, in what he refers to as “adult lullabies.” We caught up with him and get into some of the inspiration behind his latest work, and he shares an exclusive, intimate acoustic performance, recorded at his home studio.  Pure At Heart is out now from Western Vinyl.

As summer winds down we think about the start of school.

My boy called me at 2am this morning and asked me if I was on tour. I looked at the phone like, this dude must be crazy. I yelled into the phone. “Do you see anybody on tour right now?! It’s a damn pandemic.” Come on man. He said “I saw a pic of you on a bus holding a beer, thought you were on tour”. I’m like, “Man I’m 60 pounds lighter in that pic. Wouldn’t you see a tour date posted or a write up on my page?” 2am? To ask me that? Man pay attention. Listen, read and observe. That’s this mix. Listen to the music and lyrics.
