Bailiff - BTR Live Studio [ep351]

Bailiff are a no-nonsense bluesy indie rock trio from Chicago featuring the classic rock formula of drums, bass, guitar, and killer riffs which they push the next level. The result is super solid pop, drawing on the likes of Led Zeppelin, Radiohead, the Beatles, and Dylan — and not just the rock bits, there are hints of everything from Indian raga to Native American chant planted in these grooves. Here, the band plays some songs and chats with Maia.

Featured song: “Golden Hour”

Remise, the latest release from Bailiff, is now available.

“Not Ours” by Beverly - BTR Live Studio [ep350.5]


Begun as a collaboration between former Vivian/Dum Dum Girl Frankie Rose and Drew Citron (a former member of Frankie’s band and NYC act Avan Lava), Beverly has taken on new life in the form of a live band (now fronted by Drew, without Frankie) and is quickly amassing fans. Lush pop harmonies and satisfyingly noisy guitars fill the space of their shoegaze pop songs in just the right way.

Featured song: “Not Ours”

Careers, Beverly’s debut album, is available now from Kanine Records.

"Secrets" by Jack & Eliza - BTR Hear & There [ep92]

Jack & Eliza grew up in NYC as childhood friends. At 15, Eliza won the International John Lennon Songwriting award. Now, with both in college in their hometown, they’re musical collaborators, performing as a duo all around the city. Their simplistic approach — two guitars, two voices — brings their talents to the forefront, as their vocals work together to weave together pristine narratives. Inspired by the sunny, psychedelic pop of bands like The Beach Boys and The Mamas & The Papas, these two are riding a similar sunny, blissful wave. We caught up with them at Coco, a restaurant in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, for an intimate acoustic performance of their single, “Secrets.”

Featured song: “Secrets”

No Wonders, Jack & Eliza’s debut EP is now available for pre-order.

TEEN - BTR Live Studio [ep349]

TEEN last visited the studio in 2012 for a stripped-down session, right around the release of their debut album. Now, with a leaner, tighter blend of synths, live and programmed instruments, and killer vocal harmonies, Teeny Lieberson and crew are back to share their latest jams. We’ve been into them from the first listen, but now, with the full live band experience at this session, their growing acclaim is on full display.

Featured song: “All The Same”

Complete broadcast and audio playlist: http://b-t-r.co/1pm0SYC

TEEN’s latest release, The Way & Color, is now available.

The Ring by Tancred - BTR Live Studio [ep348.5]

Tancred is the solo project of Jess Abbott, member of the Minneapolis band Now, Now. Born in California before growing up in New England, her current home in the Midwest may be a slightly unnatural fit for someone more accustomed to the coasts, but her direct, confessional music has certainly found a home with her fans, as demonstrated by a dedicated internet fan base built up around her YouTube and Tumblr presence. Initially an acoustic project, Tancred has developed into a full band sound on the latest record, and Jess took the music on the road for a brief tour in December 2013, which also brought her to our studio.

Featured song: “The Ring”

Tancred’s latest release, Capes, is now available from No Sleep Records.
