  1. Single Serving: Grimes – Go (feat. Blood Diamonds)

    Montreal-based songstress Grimes (aka Claire Boucher) recently wrote a song called “Go” for Rihanna. The pop star turned down the tune but Grimes wasn’t deterred. She decided to record the song herself – with the help of her friend Blood Diamonds. Grimes described the track as a “summer jam” and, whoa, is that ever on point. The track features strong Continue…

    Hear the song Grimes offered to Rihanna. It's a massive summer pop tune.

  5. Pitchfork Festival 2014 Photo Diary & Wrap-Up

    Pitchfork Festival proved to be Christmas in July for us. It was one sweet, wild ride of a weekend (that felt more like fifteen minutes) of beautiful music, warm Goose Island beers, and fantastical people watching (sunflower prints, septum piercings and candy-colored hair all in heavy rotation). It was the coolest kids of the moment (Kendrick Lamar, Perfect Pussy, Continue…

  9. Future Islands – Singles

    Samuel T. Herring was sitting alone backstage at the Hype Hotel at SXSW shirtless and, unsurprisingly, drenched in an impressive amount of sweat. Less than a minute earlier the Future Islands frontman had been dressed in his trademark tight-fitting black shirt and khakis vamping across the stage in a manner that simultaneously called to mind the over-the-top theatrics of William Shatner Continue…

  10. TK017: The Bones of J.R. Jones – Shine On Me / Dreams To Tell (Demo)

    The term gets thrown around a lot, but the music Jonathon Linaberry records as The Bones of J.R. Jones truly sounds “timeless” to my ears. In some part, that’s a result of the fact that his music isn’t inspired specifically by the contemporary music scene. For example, while you’ll find plenty of evidence of a Continue…

    I think one of the best parts about compiling my year end list is forcing myself to take the time to look back upon the year in music. Around this time each year, I sit down in front of my record player and pull LPs from my collection to play them one by one. In Continue…
