Based in Victoria, British Columbia, Aidan Knight and his band play -- in their words, quoting the words of others -- "baroque" and "downtrodden" music. Don't let this mislead you -- though much of it is slow, or mellow, or quiet, there's a subdued sort of optimism going on just below the surface throughout many of these experimental folks songs. Sure, there's the sort of melancholy that comes from recording in a cabin in the woods, Bon Iver-style, but there's more to Aidan Knight than that. Here, he and the band play some songs and Aidan talks a bit about the songwriting and recording process.
On Thursday, August 29th, workers at fast food chains such as McDonald's and KFC conducted strikes and walkouts across the country, hoping for wage hikes that would boost their hourly pay to $15 from the current federal minimum of $7.25. In New York, local officials and politicians joined workers in Union Square to express their support for raising the minimum wage and the chance to unionize. BTR Pulse’s Lauren Hawker spoke with organizers and participants at the demonstration.
Fast food workers demand better wages in New York City and across America yesterday.
Kleenex Girl Wonder is the chameleon-esque stage name of one Graham Smith, a songwriter from the suburbs of Chicago who's been calling New York City his home for some time now. Beginning with a group of neighborhood friends and evolving into a shifting cast of players, KGW is a sort of indie rock institution, constantly experimenting while staying true to its time-tested formula. The current band features Smith on bass and vocals, Thayer McClanahan on guitar, and Matt LeMay on drums.

CitiBike has officially launched in New York City. Meanwhile, New York is one of twenty-nine states in the U.S. with either no or limited laws requiring cyclists to wear helmets and some discussion has arisen about whether the city should implement its own mandatory helmet law for cyclists. Requiring helmets, however, may hamper efforts to promote cycling, some research shows. It it believed that the mandatory helmet law in Melbourne may be to blame for that city's failed bike share program. Elsewhere, Tel Aviv and Mexico City, hoping to spur greater ridership with bike sharing, recently repealed their own helmet laws. With bike travel now possible for thousands more tourists and residents, BTR Pulse’s Lauren Hawker asks people in New York -- including new CitiBike users -- their views on bike safety and helmet use, which is encouraged in NYC, but not mandatory.
A music mix for Memorial Day - enjoy the holiday!

While Prince Rama is a band in the sense that it contains people making music, recording albums, and going on tour, there's a whole world of other activity going on with this Brooklyn-based group. Taraka and Nimai Larson have been experimenting with their music in different forms over the years in vastly different environs: living in ashrams, working for utopian architects, writing manifestos, and delivering lectures from pools of fake blood. They've used a clever blend of mysticism, technology, aerobics, and props, to build a constantly evolving world filled with inspiration and music.
Butter The Children is an NYC-based quartet, newly signed to Downtown Records that features members of Le Rug, Sweet Bulbs, and Night Manager (who were previously featured on Serious Business on BTR). The band blasts out satisfying post-punk/indie rock tunes that would make the perfect soundtrack to just about any flick revolving around road trips, wild parties, or young lovers. Keeping the tempos up and the guitars going wild, no moment is wasted with this band. Also, as they tell Travis here, they may be working on a concept record -- so there’s that.

Dynasty Electric is an internationally-touring Brooklyn band making psychedelic electronic dance rock. Built on the foundation of Jenny Electrik's seductive vocals and featuring the production of Seth Misterka, their retro-futuristic pop sound falls somewhere between Madonna, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Jefferson Airplane. With the help of hip-hop mogul Damon Dash, the duo recorded with producer Ski Beatz and crafted an album of dance-pop gems, perfect for the New York nightlife scene. Hot off a massive remix project for their song "Golden Arrows," via Indaba Music, the band hit our studio to share some songs, and to chat with Maia about making the transition from an electronic duo to a larger group with more live elements, and the surreal experience of performing at Burning Man.
