Hello and welcome to Discovery Corner on BTR! We’re heading to Austin for this week’s episode to tune into the sounds of The Zoltars–a four piece reminiscent of Lou Reed if he were confined to a garage with a good sense of humor. The band has covered quite a bit of ground over the years, changing lineups and reinventing themselves with each album.

Earlier this year they released their self-titled album, which marks a departure from the more melancholy sounds of the previous. I’ll talk with Jared “Zoltar” Leibowich about how this record comes closest to emulating the group’s live sound and energy, and how a brush with mononucleosis inspired him to set off on the path to songwriting. Also, check out the tunes!

And don’t forget to check out the Discovery Artist feature on The Zoltars!
