    Earlier today, Los Angeles based duo GEMS shared the second single from their debut album Kill The One You Love. This one’s called “Tangled Memories” and it’s a shadowy, lushly-textured r&b cut with a graceful melody and muscular rhythm. We’re feeling it. The album drops October 30th. You can grab a copy of Kill The Continue…

  2. Single Serving: GEMS – Living As A Ghost

    We’ve spilled a lot of digital ink raving about our love of the nomadic duo GEMS (Lindsay Pitts and Clifford John Usher). They’re pretty much our favorite of our favorites. In fact, it’s been really, really hard patiently waiting for the follow up to 2013’s Medusa EP. It turns out there was good reason for Continue…

  4. Single Serving: GEMS – Scars

    Talented Washington, D.C.-based GEMS (Lindsay Pitts and Clifford John Usher) just dropped a brand new single moments ago. Their latest single “Scars” explores new sonic territory for the duo without straying far from their signature ambiance. It leads with a skittering beat and production that is cavernous and darkly lit before Pitts’ bright croon lightens the room. GEMS Continue…

  5. Single Serving: GEMS – Medusa EP

    Our obsession with the duo GEMS is well documented, so it’s no surprise that we’ve nearly exclusively been listening to their brand new Medusa EP since it’s release yesterday. The 4-track EP is easily one of the year’s best new albums. It’s essential listening. And, what’s more, it’s further evidence to suggest that in a few Continue…

  8. TK018: GEMS – All I Ever / Never Age 7″

    It’s not uncommon for professional critics and music bloggers alike, myself included, to start a review by pointing out where the band’s from. I suppose (although I’ll admit to having thought about it less than I should) that we’re implying that the music is informed by the city where it was born. In fact, I Continue…

  9. Single Serving: GEMS – All I Ever

    I’ve been sitting on this one for a few days, but I can’t hold out on you any longer. Washington, DC-based duo GEMS (Clifford John Usher and Lindsay Pitts) sent me their latest single a week ago, and it is just so lovely that I have to share it. Recorded at the beach, the gently flowing Continue…

    Wow. I just received this beauty in my inbox and wanted to share it with all of you. The track “Void Moon” is the first release from duo GEMS (formerly birdlips).

Nirvana’s Love Buzz b/w Big Cheese 7″ was released in the Sub Pop (now defunct) 7″ subscription series and copies are now going Continue…
