Peter Matthew Bauer

Following a 13-year stint as a member of beloved New York band The Walkmen, Peter Matthew Bauer is now on his own (with, perhaps, a little help from his friends). His debut solo album, Liberation!, was largely conceived on a trip across Europe and delivers a driving, dense sonic package that may feel a little familiar to fans of his previous band. He stopped by to share some songs and talk a bit about the project with special guest host Travis Harrison in this, the final episode of BTR Live Studio recorded at the SoHo location of Serious Business.

Featured song: “Irish Wake In Varanasi”
