Yellow Red Sparks at the BTRhouse in Austin, TX

During the 2014 SXSW Music Festival in Austin, Texas, the BTR Live Studio team set up shop at a lovely house on the East Side and invited bands to play music and chat in the backyard. Southern Tier Brewing Company provided beverages and the fine Austin weather did the rest.

Yellow Red Sparks is a fantastic Los Angeles-based folk group. From somber dirges to jubilant stomps and sweet love songs, the band explores every corner of the genre with consistently pristine, cinematic results full of lush sounds. They stopped by the BTRhouse on upright bassist Sara Lynn’s birthday, and we were happy to help celebrate!

Featured song: “Monsters With Misdemeanors”

Yellow Red Sparks’ self-titled debut album is now available.
