The Barnyard Boys Xmas Spectacular II - Serious Business on BTR [ep144]

NSFW! It’s not even the topless dancer that makes us think this one could bring some grief from your boss… Celebrate a very special birthday with The Barnyard Boys, back again to wreak havoc on our studio and earholes, all while making sweet love to our eyes and the mother Earth as their own special way of celebrating Christmas. If that sounds scary, well, you’ve been warned. Papa Buns leads the chaos and fun as we take a trip inside the world of this communally-living powerhouse of a band. Just watch it (but seriously, not at work, you’ll totally get fired - and possibly sent to the psychiatrist).

Featured song: “Come Close To My Fire”

Complete broadcast and audio playlist: http://b-t-r.co/1di8cAJ

The Barnyard Boys’ self-titled release is now available.

She came by with her band to play some tunes and to get down to some serious talk about metal.

Featured song: “What Can I Do?”

Complete broadcast and audio playlist: http://b-t-r.co/H1N6Mj

Young Things - Serious Business on BTR [ep122]

Young Things is a rock ‘n roll band from New York City. With apparent influences from the Beatles to the Strokes, everything is in its rightful place here for their mission to get crowds dancing, drinking, and staying out all night. Aiming to be at the forefront of a raw garage rock revival, they’ve been inching closer to the spotlight, opening sold out shows for Jesse Malin and Har Mar Superstar and enlisting Lenny Kaye (Patti Smith Band) to produce their record.

Featured song: “All Human Life”

Complete broadcast and radio playlist: http://b-t-r.co/18olBJc

Young Things’ Hello Love // Goodbye Sexual is out now on Battle Worldwide.

Grass Is Green - Serious Business on BTR [ep121]

Grass Is Green is one of the best post-punk bands currently in Boston. Rippin’ weirdo noise and explosive energy is all over their music and live show, so it’s no surprise they’ve been getting great press with every move. Here, the guys play some jams and talk about being on the receiving end of some outlandish BrooklynVegan commenter attacks.

Featured song: “Sammy So’sick”

Split Dicks, a collaboration between Grass Is Green and Two Inch Astronaut is now available from Exploding In Sound.

Pop Zeus - Serious Business on BTR [ep119]

Pop Zeus is the project of Brooklyn’s Mikey Hodges. As the story goes, it was impressed upon his young music-loving self that idols Prince, Stevie Wonder, and Todd Rundgren all played every instrument on their records. When Mikey was ready to start making his own music — less than two years ago — this idea stuck, and he banged out 10 power pop jams using borrowed gear. Here, he performs with his band and talks with Travis about their shared connections with Guided By Voices, among other thing.


Featured Song: “Hold You Tight”


Pop Zeus, the self-titled album, is available now from Burger Records.

Not Blood Paint - BTR Live Studio [ep222]

Not Blood Paint are quite possibly robots, or maybe aliens, or, at the very least, four musicians with a serious penchant for completely over-the-top theatrics. Musically, the quartet treads heavily in pop of the bizarre, glammy art-rock territory (strains of Bowie, Of Montreal, Dirty Projectors, etc), pumping out tightly constructed gems solid enough to blast past all the makeup and costumery. Every show is a different experience — “experience” being the key here — and their reputation absolutely precedes them. Take a trip with the band for some extreme eye contact, guitar-shredding silver humanoids, and an introduction to the New Suit Methodology.


Featured Song: “Don’t Wanna Talk About It”


No Blood Paint’s Calm Down is available now.

Fear of Men - BTR Live Studio [ep217]

Fear of Men are a band from Brighton, England, born of an art school project by vocalist/guitarist Jessica Weiss and her home recordings of ambient soundtracks to short films. Now a four piece and drawing their inspiration from art and philosophy, Fear of Men deliberately juxtaposes iconic museum imagery and lyrical themes of loneliness and fragmentation with buoyant pop melodies, resulting in songs with often bleakly nihilistic subject matter swimming in hummable pop tunes.


Featured song: “Born”


Fear Of Men’s Early Fragments is out now on Kanine Records.
