This week is heavy on heavy-hitters... new tunes from Overnight Sensation faves... some of the best new music you will hear all year! Music from bands like DICKTATIONS! KERO KERO BONITO! OLD MAYBE! MEGA BOG! Oh me oh my... this one's a winner!      
Dott is an indie pop band based in Galway, Ireland, who we last caught up with on BTR Live Studio, when they visited NYC to play our CMJ show a couple of years back. The quartet’s primary songwriter and singer, Anna, spent the last year with lead guitarist Evan in Toronto, where the two developed a duo version of the band, aided by backing tracks, and crafting a brand new batch of songs to coincide with the experience. Here, they share a bare, acoustic-driven version of one of these new tunes. Beverly Baldwin EP is available now from Mirror Universe Tapes.
Fear Of Men are back. The band, from Brighton, England, previously appeared on BTR Live Studio a few years ago, but now, more mature and taking a distinctively groovier, stranger turn with their music, the group returns to share some of their latest with us. Fall Forever is available now on Kanine Records.

Eat trash and be free with High Waisted, the surf rock band that's leaving a trail of sparkles across the U.S.! Influenced by happiness, confetti, Dick Dale, and doing whatever the hell they want.
free cake for every creature, with its adorable and almost sickly sweet name, is bringing twee back. Katie P. Bennett’s indie pop music, filled out by a full band that manages to play about as quietly as possible, has about as much of a 90s K Records vibe as any group of millennials could possibly muster. While references and nods are likely intentional to some extent, we’re forced to believe that Bennett really is just laying her soul out there honestly, sharing her own stories of love and confusion (you know, “growing up” stuff) in the most melodic way possible. Her soft-spoken vocals hook you from the start and make you ache for the rest of the story. The band stopped by the studio for this live look at one of their new album’s most memorable tracks. Talking Quietly Of Anything With You is available now from Double Double Whammy. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview. Follow free cake for every creature on Facebook and Twitter. Now you can watch us on your iPhone or iPad! Check out the BTRtoday App!
This week we catch up with JP, frontman for the Brooklyn-based band herMajesty, to talk about using the mind, body, and music as a canvas.
This week's show features pop from ALL OVER the place -- Planeta No from Chile, Arcolor from Japan, KKB from the UK, a couple Canadians, and three excellent bedroom poppers from Detroit, even! All in the same show? I can't believe it. PLUS, do you think that Kero Kero Bonito sampled me in their latest hit "Lipslap"?? I think they did, and if you do too, leave me a dang comment!
Wow, it's only a couple weeks in to 2016, and already there are tons of great new records from the international underground! Check them out on this week's episode of Overnight Sensation! You got new punk from bands like JJ DOLL, GAOL, and DUD! You got experimental pop from Weirdly Warm, Bubblegum Best, and more! You got it all, g'bye!
