Our Week In Music: SXSW Online, Exclusive At-Home Performances, & Debut Solo Musicians

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 chatted with solo indie artist Lydia Luce! Her newest album Dark River bursts with emotion and plays your heartstrings—which you can listen to in full on the episode.


For BTR Live Studio (at Home), Jeanette D. Moses chatted with local NYC rockers T.V.O.D. The group has been hard at work writing and recording their debut album during the era of the global pandemic. They chatted about that process and also shared live versions of some of those tracks recorded at their home base studio space in Ridgewood, Queens.


Subliminal Inevitable also had a new episode this week, this time featuring UK-based indie label Babywoman Records. Host Bryan Bruchman chatted with the owner/musician/podcaster Charlotte Carpenter.


Plus, another new BTR Live Studio (At-Home)! Host Bryan Bruchman features LA-based artist Kaz Mirblouk. Blending shoegaze and psych-rock through bedroom indie rock via extensive solo production and collaborations, they chatted about the release of his new record and gave an exclusive at-home performance.


Finally, our Top Artist of the Week was Aerial East! Our hosts spun their new self-titled EP (out on Strolling Bones) the most this week.



You can also watch the exclusive performance from our latest BTR Live Studio (at Home) sessions with T.V.O.D. and Kaz Mirblouk right here, along with previously unreleased At-Home Live Studios with GangaLee from back in October:



We kicked the week off getting ready for SXSW 2021—which is 100% online and still 100% still worth attending.


And our first premiere of the week comes from Warren Dunes! We released their Frank Zappa-inspired indie rock tune.


We also premiered the debut of David Croley Broyles’s solo project with the song “Hot Water.” He wrote the song for the film Ham on Rye which he also acted in and co-produced.


Plus, for our third premiere of the week, we had UK rocker Penfriend navigate you through a toxic world in the video for “Cancel Your Hopes.
