9 Sweet Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

April 15th, 2014 9 Sweet Mother

It’s hard to believe but this year, I’ll be celebrating my second Mother’s Day as a mother. Last year, Neko was barely four months old. I have learned a few things but mostly, I’m still just stumbling along. Thankfully, though, I’ve got a few things figured out. Around the holidays, Uncommon Goods asked if I’d […]

Single Serving: VA – Faux Real (Record Store Day 2014 Release)

April 18th, 2014 Various-Artists-Faux-Real-Art

As much as I love Record Store Day, I’m also starting to realize just how non-essential most of the releases are. Let’s face it, with a few notable exceptions every year, most of the releases collect dust on your shelf and rarely get played. And of the best releases I’ve scored, many prove to be […]

Sky High Banana and Homemade Nutella Sandwich: The Lies We Tell

April 8th, 2014 Sky High Banana and Homemade Nutella Sandwich

We all lie to ourselves on a daily basis. Whether it’s a little or a lot, about the small stuff or the big stuff, these lies get us through our day-to-day. And if you don’t believe it, you’re lying to yourself. You might not think of it as lying, your moral soul, you. You tell […]

Single Serving: It Looks Sad. – Radical

April 17th, 2014 It Looks Sad

With a name like It Looks Sad. you almost expect an opening line like the one heard in ‘Radical,’ which concerns itself with trying to get some sleep on a deathbed. But amidst the darkness of singer Jimmy Turner’s lyrics and claim of their moniker, there’s a shimmery tone and calmness of delivery that paints […]

How to Store Cheese and Favorite Cheesy Recipes!

April 2nd, 2014 How to Store Cheese + Cheesy Recipes

Around the holidays, while browsing for gift ideas, I came across cheese paper bags. I had never heard of cheese paper bags before because, truth be told, I’d been used to storing my cheese in plastic wrap, which is exactly how you’re not supposed to store cheese. Turns out, the best way to store cheese […]

Single Serving: Lazyeyes – Lazyeyes EP

April 17th, 2014 Lazyeyes

I often wonder just what it is within my brain chemistry or deoxyribonucleic acid that predisposes me to the varied types of music I hold most dear. Perhaps I’m being too scientific about it; rarely does one hear, ‘that song speaks to my DNA.’ So if science has little or nothing to do with it, […]

Rosemary and Toasted Caraway Shortbread

March 27th, 2014 Rosemary and Toasted Caraway Shortbread

Somehow, I’ve managed to avoid all conversations related to snowmaggedons, polar vortexes, and solar vortexes. And yet, I could feel it coming. The itch to to flee. I get that way a lot. In a funk. When nothing feels like it’s quite in its right place. I immediately start throwing things away, including things that […]

Single Serving: WL – Nothing Anymore (demo)

April 16th, 2014 WL - 7 inch

Portland-based trio WL have flown under the radar for long enough now, but something tells me that’s gonna change soon. Take a listen to the demo for their slow burning shoegaze jam “Nothing Anymore” for an idea of what they’re brewing up. There’s a hazy vibe, smoky female crooning, and a tumbling surf-rock inspired rhythm. […]

Introducing: Turntable Kitchen’s ‘Cookbook in a Box’

March 24th, 2014 Turntable Kitchen

How do I begin? When we first started the Pairings Box, I never imagined that 2+ years later, we would still be going strong. Optimistic much? Before I ever had this site, or even knew how to cook, I dreamed that one day I would write a book. My dreams started in front of my […]

Single Serving: The Bones of J.R. Jones – Good Friend Of Mine

April 16th, 2014 The Bones of J.R. Jones

The latest bluesy jam from our friend J. R. Linaberry, a.k.a. The Bones of J.R. Jones, kicks with some serious stomp. Led by a frentic riff, a bounding bass, and handclaps for days and days, it’s pure fire. It’s the first single off his new LP Dark was the Yearling which will see a release […]
