This week, on The Music Meetup, Elena Childers changed it up and chatted with the creator of Brooklyn Is Burning A.F. Cortés—an upcoming documentary on the current music scene in Brooklyn, NY. Which, if you haven’t noticed, BTRtoday is a big part of.

For our BTR Live Studio (at Home), Crazy DJ Bazarro chatted with Drop D, Originally from LA, she can roll with the best. Listen up for their interview and an exclusive performance.

This week we had another episode of When We See Each Other. This time Nikkiesha McLeod featured more music by Blxck Cxsper, as a follow-up to the interview in the last episode. Also, we heard new music by Anjimile and The Black Creatures, ahead of their interview from the next episode.

Also, The Subliminal Inevitable Show  Bryan Bruchman hi-lighted records from the past four months that have stuck with him on the show. You heard music from new and recent releases by Double Grave, Oceanator, Cartalk, Eyedress, Osees, JOBS, Ganser, Wax Chattels, Anjimile, Deradoorian, Photo Ops, Snaex, Thanya Iyer, Lomedla, Lou Canon, Corey Flood, Slight Of, Merce Lemon, DEHD, and Dig Nitty.

Plus, Bryan Bruchman also chatted on BTR Live Studio (at Home) with Cartalk. The project of LA-based musician Chuck Moore, they’ve just emerged with a spectacular debut album that blends indie rock, Americana, and punk in a brilliant way. On this episode, Chuck joins Bruchman from their home to share an intimate, solo look at some of that music and had a fun chat covering the record, growing a garden, Tik Tok, and more.

And finally, our Top Artist of the Week is Anjimile! Their album Giver Taker is out now on Father/Daughter records—get yourself a copy on their Bandcamp.

Editorial

Our week started with the frontwoman of Pleasure Venom, Audrey Campbell. We chatted about music’s role in fighting against systemic issues and of course the music the punks are working on.

 

Plus, we premiered Billy the Kid’s newest single “Love Is The Way In.” The song encourages change and to spread love. It’s a real one for all the freedom fighters out there right now standing up for what’s right.

 

We also learned the American Dream is a hoax with the premiere of The Black Black’s video for “Careful On Your Way Out.” The animated music video is dark, deep, and illuminating—we gotta fight this unjust system, why not do it to rock ‘n’ roll?
