Unicycle Loves You - BTR Live Studio [ep342]
Unicycle Loves You is a Brooklyn trio who “write loud, noisy pop songs from hell.” While they don’t actually come across as being all that evil, they do have a way of making some terrifyingly great loud sounds. Evolving from jangly power pop to post-new wave to garage-psych, the band’s latest work finds them further mutating their raw pop songs with walls of sound. The band stopped by to play some tunes and chat with Maia about their recording process.

Featured song: “Jaws”

“Uncharted Places” by Alyson Greenfield - BTR Hear & There [ep91]
Alyson Greenfield is a Brooklyn-based songwriter and performer. Riding the lines between piano pop, electronica, and hip-hop through her use of synthesizers, drums, organs, and beatboxers, Greenfield takes chances (such as her unique album of hip-hop covers) and, if her many festival appearances and critical praise are any indicator,they’re working for her. She is also the Founder/Director of the Tinderbox Music Festival, an annual Brooklyn-based event focused on female musicians and empowering young women through the arts. We visited the backyard of her apartment building for an intimate performance, featuring beatboxing by her collaborator Shane Maux.
