In their own words, Toronto trio Metz plays simple rock music. Yet, their tunes are actually anything but simple — a lot of intention goes into every pounding drum beat, booming bass sound, thrashing guitar lick, and howling vocal part. In a musical landscape that sometimes seems to put a premium on quantity, equating more musicians with a more impressive sound, it’s refreshing to just see three dudes put everything into some sick, huge music. Perhaps best of all, they’re smart, funny, kind people, and were a joy to have in the studio. Watch as Travis tries to join the band, talks about Aerosmith, and gets a bit of background on how the guys started playing together.

Brooklyn’s YVETTE are Noah Kardos-Fein and Rick Daniel. Taking the primal, ritualistic rawness and physicality from the New York no wave and post-punk scene, they push it towards the noisy, the industrial, and the all-out-abrasive. More than just piercing assaults, however, the duo’s songs are impressive displays of structure, craft, and intent that, while perhaps weird and jarring for some, are ultimately catchy tunes that move you — as Travis says, “It hurts so good.” In this episode of Serious Business on BTR, the band sweated it out and then sat down to talk about how they write songs, taking time off when you need it, and being anti-shuffling.
Brooklyn noise rock duo Talk Normal (aka Sarah Register and Andrya Ambro) layers a creative array of effects and feedback over jarring rhythms for a sonic experimentation that results in surprisingly tuneful songs. Travis sat down with the band to have a nice normal (note the lack of giant beers for the interview) talk about superfandom, the recording process, and multitasking during shows.
