Team Genius - BTR Live Studio [ep135]

Team Genius, made of a sprawling group of Ohio natives (and 1 Canadian) has become one of New York City’s most prolific and fun loving bands. They’ve amassed several bodies of work, all of which chronicle the ups and downs of twenty-something life in the city. During their exclusive live session we tested their portrait drawing skills and learned everything from track-star secrets to state mascot trivia. Team Genius is currently in the studio mixing their new EP, Loud Songs. /// Featured song: “Home” /// Team Genius’ newest EP, Loud Songs, will be available soon from Paper Garden Records.

Conveyor - Serious Business on BTR [ep75] (by seriousbusinessonbtr)

Originally an electronic duo from Florida, Conveyor has evolved into a Brooklyn-based quartet whose charming indie-pop features sweet harmonies, folk-inspired melodies, and bits of dazzling synth. The band — consisting of Gary Alan Busch, Jr., Michael Ryan Pedron, Evan Michael Garfield, and TJ Masters — play with various textures and moods, poppy and playful one moment, subdued and forlorn the next. Here, the band discuss the recording of their new album and perform a number of new songs. /// Featured song: “Mane” /// Conveyor’s self-titled debut album comes out July 17th via Paper Garden Records. /// Order the new album here: http://papergardenrecords.com/shop/conveyor /// Complete radio broadcast and playlist: http://bit.ly/JyQcWA /// Official website: http://conveyorisaband.com /// Twitter: @therealconveyor

Bryan Scary - BTR Live Studio [ep100] (by btrlivestudio)

Wanted to revisit this video as Bryan Scary’s album just dropped last week!

Channeling Queen, Of Montreal, and the Fiery Furnaces, multi-instrumentalist Bryan Scary makes psychedelic-pop that’s overflowing with dramatic, whimsical and swooping hooks. The inventive and somewhat oddball Brooklyn musician created Daffy’s Elixir — a new, double disc conceptual album set entirely in the wild, wild west — thanks in part to a successful Kickstarter campaign that raised $16,000. /// Featured song: “Ballroom Kid” /// Daffy’s Elixir, the third album by Bryan Scary, comes out April 24th via Paper Garden Records. /// Complete radio broadcast and playlist: http://bit.ly/x6tRDq /// Official website: http://www.bryanscary.com

Emanuel and the Fear - BTR Live Studio [ep108] (by btrlivestudio)

Brooklyn’s Emanuel and the Fear — a large eclectic ensemble sometimes boasting as many as 11 members — play a genre-bending style of orchestral-pop. Led by fiery frontman Emanuel Ayvas, the band’s poetic, yet bold, songs infuse classical music à la Beethoven, chamber-folk à la Arcade Fire, and straightforward intense rock. /// Featured song: “Wooble” /// Hands is Emanuel and the Fear’s latest EP. /// Complete radio broadcast and playlist: http://bit.ly/GEAbbr /// Official website: http://www.emanuelandthefear.com /// Twitter: @EandtheFear

"We Will Never Be Discovered" by The City and Horses - BTR Hear & There [ep52] (by btrhearandthere)

Led by singer-songwriter and filmmaker Marc Cantone, Brooklyn band The City and Horses plays fun and spunky indie-pop that channels everyone from Belle & Sebastian and Beck to The Pixies and The Velvet Underground. One of their songs was featured on the soundtrack of Paper Heart, a romantic comedy starring Michael Cera and Charlyne Yi. Here they perform the quirky, catchy tune “We Will Never Be Discovered” at Grooveshark’s offices. Special thanks to Grooveshark for letting us film there! /// The City and Horses’ sophomore album, We Will Never Be Discovered, is out via Paper Garden Records. /// Official website: http://www.thecityandhorses.com

"Old Form" by Pree - BTR Hear & There [ep43] (by btrhearandthere)

After leaving indie band Le Loup, guitarist May Tabol started a new project called Pree. Their name a reference to the Neutral Milk Hotel song, “A Baby for Pree,” the D.C.-based group play charming and quaint folk. The instrumentation is warm and rustic, showered with the occasional bright tinkling of bells and tambourines, while Tabol’s front woman vocals are richly textured and feature a quirky bend reminiscent of Joanna Newsom. With music fit for a cozy cabin, Pree sounded right at home when they played at Brooklyn’s Permanent Records, a store with a tight squeeze and intimate ambiance where any audiophile can easily find comfort./// Pree’s new album, Folly, comes out October 18 on Paper Garden Records. /// Pree on Bandcamp: http://pree.bandcamp.com /// Official site for Permanent Records: http://permanentrecords.info/
