Recent Episodes
Julien Baker is from Memphis, Tennessee, and currently in school at MTSU. Regionally, she may be better known as a member of the punk-influenced indie band, Forrister, though in recent months her solo work has caught the attention of the national music press. What makes her stuff stick -- beyond an undeniably great voice -- is the way she effortlessly spins heart-wrenching, brutally honest, confessional lyrics over sweetly melodic, looped guitar. Without much more than a few songs floating around to hear, she's managed to captivate more than a few new fans, ahead of the release of her full recorded debut. Here, she performs “Sprained Ankle,” the title track from her debut album which will be released October 23 on 6131 Records, recorded during her recent visit to BTR Live Studio.
Laser Background, the hazy dream-pop brainchild of Philadelphia's Andy Molholt, plays around in that murky field of tape hiss and slow grooves. There's a playfulness here, falling somewhere in the fuzzy, psychedelic territory between the Beatles and Pavement, where pop melodies definitely rule, but everything sounds just a little bit… well, strange. Here, we present “Tropic Of Cancer,” from their recent session for BTR Live Studio.
Sophie B. Hawkins needs no introduction. The New York-based, Grammy-nominated songwriter has a long history of hit songs, releases, and life challenges. Here she shares her classic 1992 single, "Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover" in an intimate performance at Saltlands Studio in DUMBO, Brooklyn, recorded during her recent session for BTR Live Studio.
Caverns is a five piece rock band based in New York City that blends classic rock hooks with psychedelic vibes, all pinned together with touches of blues, funk, and prog. Here, we present “Count To Five,” performed during their recent session for BTR Live Studio and also featured on their latest EP, Tonche.
Color Collage is the mid-fi, "electronic doo-wop" solo project of Brooklyn-based songwriter, Shane Conerty. A long way from his musical roots in Asheville, North Carolina, with the acoustic pop trio Now You See Them, Conerty cut his electronic music teeth on remixes while going by the alias Leann Grimes. Now, he's putting those sampling and producing skills to use as Color Collage, building the base for his fresh, catchy narratives. Here, we present “Can’t Stay Put,” performed during his recent BTR Live Studio session at Saltlands in DUMBO, Brooklyn.
A Deer A Horse is a Brooklyn-based trio self-described as "urgent rock n' roll." Centered around the riveting songwriting and vocal delivery of singer/guitarist Rebecca Satellite and compounded by bassist Angela Phillips' memorable punk-stomp stage antics, ADAH has been quietly bubbling up in the Brooklyn music scene over the last few years, making quite an impression at every turn. Here, they perform “Fighter” during their recent session for BTR Live Studio.
