Forever Honey is a new Brooklyn-based four-piece “jangle-pop/sob-rock” band that was just getting going as the live music industry shut down in early 2020. They released an excellent four song debut EP in April that sounds lush and dreamy, with enough variety of genres and feels to give the listener an idea of what this band is capable of. Liv, Aida, Steve, and Jack got together in their new practice space to record for the first time in this exclusive performance. Pre-Mortem High is available now. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.
On this episode of BTR Live Studio at Home, the new Brooklyn-based “jangle-pop/sob-rock” band Forever Honey plays a few of their lush and dreamy songs – including one unreleased tune – for us from their brand new practice space, and chats with host Bryan B about their debut EP, what’s been happening with the band during quarantine, and finding inspiration for writing new music. Watch the band’s exclusive performance of “Christian” here! Forever Honey’s debut EP, Pre-Mortem High, is available now.

Although Naomi started the band back in 2014 while she was still living in London, she didn’t start playing music with Krystal until 2018 for a White Stripes cover show, the rest as they say, is history.

Jelly Kelly began life as a side project for Monogold frontman Keith Kelly, but quickly grew into its own beast. With a similar musical tendency (the presence of Monogold powerhouse drummer Jared Apuzzo – rototoms and all – probably helps with that) but a different angle that sees Kelly’s vocals opening up for a more full-throated delivery than that falsetto we’ve come to know and love over the years, Jelly Kelly is a young band full of experienced players (Nicolas Dube, Dom Bodo round out the quartet) having fun making weird sounds. The effect is an effortless, cool, catchy blend of post-punky hook-ridden indie rock that doesn’t want to fit neatly in any genre, and we’re here for it. The band dropped by Serious Business Music in Brooklyn to give us a taste of their brand new music. Fresh Paint by Jelly Kelly is available now.

proper. is the Brooklyn-based indie rock project led by Erik Garlington. With heavy doses of emo sensitivity and fury, the songs writhe and shake as Garlington spits out an avalanche of expertly crafted, brutally honest lyrics. From the first waves of feedback to the propulsive dance beat and the breakdown that follows just in time for the lyrics to start, we’re hooked immediately. The band stopped by Serious Business Music in Brooklyn to rock for us. I Spent The Winter Writing Songs About Getting Better is available now from Big Scary Monsters.

The music of Maneka – the sonically-eclectic project of guitarist Devin McKnight, also of the band Speedy Ortiz – draws on a multitude of influences in an attempt to reflect McKnight’s unique cultural perspective as a person of color in an overwhelmingly white-dominated music scene. With rejection of any thoughts of genre pigeonholing – though post-punk might be the broadest that usually applies one way or another – Maneka swerves from sound to sound and emotion to emotion in an impressive blend of creative songwriting. The band stopped by Serious Business Music in Brooklyn to show us how it all comes together. Devin by Maneka is available now from Exploding In Sound.
