  1. Single Serving: Typhoon – Common Sentiments

    Typhoon are the best little big band in America right now. Hands down. While their following steadily grows with each new listener, in my mind there is no reason this band shouldn’t be selling out the Greek Theater. In time, I’m sure they will. A band with this much skill and creativity can’t remain a Continue…

  2. TK013: Turtle Giant – Gold Tooth (Killer) / All Light (Live Session)

    I average anywhere from 40-80 music submissions a day. Let me tell you, when you receive new music in those quantities it can become increasingly rare to become genuinely excited about a new artist. It’s information overload. And, yet, that also makes it all the more special when you do discover an artist that you Continue…

  3. Musical Pairings: Deerhoof – Breakup Song

    Don’t be fooled, Deerhoof record pop music. If they sound entirely unlike any other pop band you’ve heard, that might be because they have their own unique approach to the genre. As Deerhoof drummer Greg Saunier explains it: “Pop = Catchy. Pop = New. Pop = No rules.” Those values are beautifully demonstrated on the band’s latest album Continue…

  4. Single Serving: SBTRKT – Terminal

    This previously unreleased track from masked producer SBTRKT was released on the Internet the a few days ago with little in the way of explanation. The description on SBTRKT’s Soundcloud page merely reads: “tales from the studio” with no other information provided. It’s a crisp, bubbly driver with surprisingly low emphasis on that big bassy Continue…

  5. Single Serving: Memory Tapes – Sheila

    I thought Memory Tapes’ debut Seek Magic was pure magic. It was one of those few records that was so good and so exciting it could inspire a whole new genre. Personally, I can still spend hours transfixed listening to that LP with a good pair of headphones. Unfortunately, his follow up, Player Piano, was somewhat disappointing. Continue…

  6. Musical Pairings: Dum Dum Girls – End of Daze

    As the title implies, End of Daze documents Los Angeles’ Dum Dum Girls at moment of change in their career and front-woman Dee Dee at a turning point in her life. Indeed, it’s notable that of the five tracks on Dum Dum Girls’ End of Daze EP, three are leftovers recorded following the sessions for Continue…

  7. Single Serving: Dead Times – Future Selves

    Just found this hot groove from LA-producer Dead Times over on Bad Panda Records website. It’s a crisp, spacious, and feather-soft r&b jam that just rolls around gently in your ear canals like it owns the place. Oh, and since it’ll likely make a home there (in your ear canals that is), it’ll probably lead Continue…
