  1. Musical Pairings: The xx – Coexist

    It’d be hard to overstate the impact of The xx’s debut album on the world of indie music. Seemingly overnight xx turned the group into superstars. Indeed, they’ve been sampled by Rihanna and Drake. They’ve been tapped to do remixes for many of the world’s biggest artists including Radiohead, Florence & The Machine, Adele, and Continue…

  2. Single Serving: TOPS – Diamond Look

    “Diamond Look” is the new single from Montreal four-piece TOPS and I think you’re going to feel this one. It’s a sparkling synth jam with a serious high-energy groove. Give it a play. This here is available on limited-edition white vinyl single. Get one before they are gone.

  3. Turntable Kitchen :: October 2012 Mix

    October has long been one of my favorite months. For me, October is festive gourds, pumpkin flavored foods, apple cider, baseball postseason, and ends with my birthday (which is on Halloween). And so far, this year, October has also proved to be a pretty good month for hot new music. The music we’re featuring on Continue…

  4. Musical Pairings: Flying Lotus – Until The Quiet Comes

    Flying Lotus’ music is anything but subtle and easy. Indeed, his albums consistently challenge the listener with complex melodies, viscerally textured sonics, and highly syncopated rhythms. In that regard, his latest effort, Until The Quiet Comes, stays the course. It’s Los Angeles’ Flying Lotus’ fourth, and most thoughtful, album to date. Previously, I described his album Los Continue…

  5. Single Serving: MØ – Maiden & Pilgrim

    Copenhagen’s 23 year-old chanteuse MØ has stolen my heart with little more than a pair of sexy electro-pop jams. Give her a chance and I’m sure she’ll have yours as well. Both “Maiden” and “Pilgrim” are smoky, bright and clean. “Pilgrim” is a neon-lit and brassy groove kissed with stuttering synths and slinking low end. Continue…

  6. Three Grizzly Bear Covers

    I’ve always been fascinated by covers songs. What interests me most about cover songs is what the cover says about the covering band and also what it says about the influence of the band being covered. When I started the Served Three Ways series I hoped to allow our readers to contemplate the ways in Continue…

  7. Musical Pairings: Jorge Ben – Africa Brasil

    I’m no expert when it comes to world music. In fact, I only tend to learn about world music before a vacation. If I know I’m going to travel to Argentina, for example, then I’ll spend the months leading up to the trip researching music from that country. From Argentina, I return with a sack Continue…

  8. Single Serving: Ducktails – The Flower Lane

    Ducktails is the semi-solo project of Real Estate‘s Matt Mondanile. Or maybe I should say Real Estate is his “full band” project. After all, he’s released three prior records as Ducktails compared with two LPs as Real Estate. Either way, he’ll be releasing his fourth full length album with Ducktails early next year. The album Continue…

  9. Musical Pairings: A.C. Newman – Shut Down The Streets

    A.C. Newman is undeniably best known for his work with The New Pornographers. Nonetheless, I’ve always counted his solo albums, especially his first, amongst my favorite in his discography. In fact, although I’d be excited for a new The New Pornographers album any day, I’m maybe even more delighted when A.C. Newman (or any of Continue…

  10. Musical Pairings: Grizzly Bear – Shields

    We’re over three quarters of the way through the year, and I have two potential candidates for my album of the year. The first is Beach House’s Bloom. It’s still hard to imagine I could ever get sick of “Lazuli” and I still listen to that track an average of at least once a week. Continue…

  11. New in the TK Market: Gift Bundles!

    The TK Market, which we launched earlier this summer, is a little shop where you can purchase some fun TK-branded and related products. With the holidays coming up (they’ll be here sooner than you think!) we thought we’d put together a few gift bundles that make gift-giving easy. Whether you’ve got a friend’s birthday coming Continue…
