Our Week In Music: A Spring Break Playlist, Lil Nas X, & Lots of Premieres

In case you couldn’t keep up with the musicians, bands, and artists we’ve been throwing at you all week, here’s a quick recap …


This week, on The Music Meetup, host Elena Childers featured Kentucky-based artist S.G. Goodman. They chatted politics and her take on old-school country music with a fresh Americana sound. Check out the interview and hear her 2020 album Old Time Feeling in its entirety.


We also had a new Roadside Assistance episode! This time the theme was Spring Break and 0ur podcasts host provided lots of fun tunes to jam out to while the weather gets warmer.


For BTR Live Studio (at Home), host Jeanette chatted with NYC rockers The Black Black. They chatted about their newest record Careful On Y0ur Way Out and how they’ve fine-tuned their livestream game in the era of a global pandemic.


You also have to check out the newest episode of When We See Each Other! Host Nikkiesha McLeod featured non-binary artist Mel Fine. They chatted about being a non-binary singer/songwriter based in Boston, Massachusetts, and about their single “In Between,” which served as their coming out announcement in January.


Plus, another new BTR Live Studio (At-Home) featured E Woods. The stage name of Chicago-based indie R&B artist Emily Woods, she has a natural energy and positive vibe that radiates from her music. In this episode, host Bryan Brushman caught up with E Woods just a few days before the release of her debut EP. Listen in to hear all about the new project, her background in the Chicago music scene, and for an exclusive performance of three songs from the new record.


Finally, our Top Artist of the Week was Katy Kirby! Our hosts are spinning her album, Cool Dry Place (Keeled Scales) the most this week!

This week we started with an empowering music video premiere from rapper Racquel Jones. From her upcoming album IgnoRANT, out April 23, “Queen” is the most empowering song of 2021 so far.


We also gathered up all our favorite TikTok trends born from Lil Nas X’s “MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)” music video.


We also got to premiere an exclusive pre-listen of Powerlines newest LP all of this is temporary. Bluesy, pop-rock songs that are so relatable you’ll keep them playing on repeat.


And, our last premiere of the week was from Ciarra Fragale’s newest single “Shapeshifter.” Paired with a lyric video of water and words, the New York-based musician spills her heart about love and questions the word tied to the emotion.
