This week’s slate of new music leads Bryan and J to talk about many things relevant to the actual music, but also leads to tangents on how to not pack books when moving, game shows we can’t fully remember, cereals both for breakfast and dessert, the differences between glockenspiels and xylophones, Carnegie Hall and unions, … and oops, they say “homonym” when they mean “homophone!”
I made a fashionably late entrance this year. I brought my sunscreen, sunglasses and wore my most summery outfit. But the joke was on me. I avoided sunburn but left the fest drenched and shivering.
There’s no need to focus on how lady-centric these bands are, but you can't deny these gals kick ass.
Roya is a Brooklyn-based band with a strong pedigree in the local and national scene, with members from notable acts Habibi, The Clean, Grooms, and Angry Angles. Musically, they tread the now-familiar world of post-punk groove, with touches of 60s pop and a focus on lyrics at the forefront that allow them to sing about even the darkest of subjects with a deceptively upbeat vibe. They stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO to give us taste of what they have to offer on their debut record! Roya’s self-titled debut record is available June 2, 2017 from Burger Records. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.
This week, we welcome a very special guest: BTRtoday’s very own Elena Childers! Elena produces New Vibrations, writes Nightshift Sounds, and writes and produces The Music Meetup (both a podcast and a column). Listen along to see if she lives up to her rep as a “cool girl” and to hear whether we “win the episode” or not. Spoiler alert: she does and we do! Note: Weird Omen, heard in this episode, will also be featured in the Music Meetup podcast/column, this coming week, so make sure to check back for that!
Jordan Corso, aka Cotillon, puts out music that soothes the soul--it's relatable in so many ways! We chat w/ & listen to his first album & a brand new single off of his upcoming album, The Afternoons.
