Today you’ll hear my favorite tunes from the first half of 2020. I’ll play songs by Waxahatchee, Lido Pimienta, Sarah Mary Chadwick, Cassowary, Frances Quinlan, Son Little (check out his session from 2015 at the BTRhouse in Austin, TX here), Thao & The Get Down Stay Down and more! Also, a brand new podcast debuted on BTR yesterday called ‘When We See Each Other.’ It’s hosted by Nikkiesha McLeod and will focus on work by Black, queer, trans, non-binary artists/writers from a broad range of genres. Listen now!
