Dentist is an indie rock band based in Asbury Park, New Jersey, whose music hits the sweet spot between surf, punk, and pop. Having honed their skills locally for a few years, they’re ready to get out on the road, and we’re pretty sure they’ll find that kids everywhere dig their sound. Here, they made the trip to the city to rock the live room at Serious Business Music in DUMBO, Brooklyn, for us. Dentist’s self-titled debut is available now, with their second full length coming in 2016. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview. Follow Dentist on Facebook.

Del Water Gap’s S. Holden Jaffe began the project on his own, alone in upstate NY before making his way down to NYC. There, he met his future and current bandmates (bassist William Evans and drummer Charles Schlinkert) in the blackout following Hurricane Sandy. The band’s sound is weary, melodic alt-folk with a modern feel. The trio stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO to share their music with us. Del Water Gap’s “Cut The Rope” / “Lamplight” 7” is available now. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview. Follow Del Water Gap on Facebook and Twitter.

Now you can watch us on your iPhone or iPad! Check out the BTRtoday App! New Brunswick, New Jersey, has developed a reputation as a hub of DIY/punk music over the past decade or so and, while the trio of Long Beard certainly come from that scene, their music plays more to the understated, pretty, and melancholy side than some of their contemporaries. With half-whispered vocals that sound like late night bedroom secrets (appropriately, singer Leslie Bear actually recorded them that way), the band delivers a strong, no-frills base for the stories they tell to play out. They stopped by Serious Business in DUMBO to share some music and chat a bit about how the songs traveled from demos to fully executed recordings. Featured song: “Hates The Party” // Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview. Sleepwalker by Long Beard is available now from Team Love. Follow Long Beard on Facebook and Twitter.
