  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. Single Serving: GEMS – Medusa

    It’s no exaggeration to say that GEMS have quickly become one of our favorite bands in the entire world. We’ve been swooning over their darkly effervescent melodies and intimately evocative songwriting for what feels like years now, and each new single demonstrates that our respect for the duo is well deserved. Their latest single “Medusa” Continue…

  4. Single Serving: GEMS – Sinking Stone

    As you may have heard, we’re HUGE fans of D.C. based duo GEMS around here. Honestly, they are one of our favorite bands in the whole world. So, as you can imagine, we’re incredibly excited about their new single “Sinking Stone.” The glistening, atmospheric groove is their most sonically textured track to date with it’s Continue…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. Single Serving: GEMS – Void Moon

    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). Here is what Lindsay Pitts (1/2 half of the duo) had to say about the track: “My partner, Clifford John, and I have been living Continue…

  8. Single Serving: Young Summer – Taken

    With nearly an hour commute during during my work week, I find myself behind the wheel more than I really care to admit. In the act of summer fading into fall and the daylight hours narrowing I’ve grown to appreciate my east bound travels. The early morning sunrise coming over the quiet hillside gives me Continue…

  9. Single Serving: Tei Shi – See Me

    By all accounts, Tei Shi (a.k.a. Valerie Teicher) had an exceptional CMJ showing this year - which will come as no surprise to fans of her excellent Saudade EP last year. And based on the new material she’s been releasing over the past few weeks, I fully expect her to be one of the highlights at next year’s SXSW. Indeed, earlier this morning she Continue…

  11. The 20 Best New Indie Bands For Your Fall Mixtape

The official first day Continue…
