  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…

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

    Let there be no doubt that, in my humble opinion, Fall is the best time of the year. Hands down. This season brings with it so many awesome things including (in no particular order) lovely weather, beautiful foliage, decorative gourds, figs, baseball playoffs, pumpkin recipes, spiced cider, mulled wine, Halloween, and Thanksgiving. The official first day Continue…

  10. Single Serving: The Twilight Sad – There’s a Girl in the Corner

    There are few acts that exist in a perpetual state of sadness quite like The Twilight Sad; for a simple comparison, they make their also-sad-and-also-Scottish peers Frightened Rabbit and We Were Promised Jetpacks sound like Bobby McFerrin hopped up on Pharrell’s latest single. But like Eeyore and Charlie Brown, The Twilight Sad’s reliable melancholy is Continue…
