  1. Single Serving: The Shoe – Paper Cup

    There’s a sweet, fragile, breathy innocence to this track. You probably won’t even realize it’s that one actress – that one from Stepmom and Donnie Darko and Into The Wild (a.k.a. Jena Malone). Her sweet observations parlay into thoughtful, sentimental lyrics. There’s the feeling that her sensitivities reflect a lovely layered intelligence, paired with that sweet melody. Continue…

    There's a sweet, fragile, breathy innocence to this latest single from Jena Malone's project The Shoe.

  2. Single Serving: Odesza – All We Need (feat. Shy Girls)

    This is a track for your Indian Summer mix. It is modern, R&B-inspired electronica pop from a chilled out duo from the Pacific Northwest. It’s ODESZA‘s first proper release after achieving a cult-like following on the road and web. Try not to feel those vibes! We dare ya.

  3. Turntable Kitchen’s Lollapalooza 2014 Recap

    Photo by Will Rice Lollapalooza came in with a show-stopping surprise (Rihanna, during Eminem’s set) and out with a wild misadventure of the elemental variety (downpour turning Grant Park into a mud-soaked water park) and our contributor Abby Yemm was there to take it all in. How to summarize a festival experience? It’s like trying Continue…

  4. 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…

  6. Single Servings: Hundred Waters – Murmurs

    There are tracks that can be compartmentalized. They fit within a genre, tucked neatly within a tab at the record store. This Hundred Waters‘ melancholic, angelic song sprawls itself openly, abstractly – with patience and grace. It is soul and ghost pop and R&B and all the nuances you want it to be, with each Continue…

  7. Single Serving: Woman’s Hour – Conversations (Fort Romeau Remix)

    Filed under: save for a rainy day. Save for a rainy day when you need to imagine yourself in the south of France, experiencing a sonic soft rock flow of Daft Punk-esque vibes, created by these talented British siblings. Look for the full album by Woman’s Hour in mid-July.

  8. Single Serving: Tame Impala – Backwards (First Demo)

    This newly released demo was just posted by Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker, via SoundCloud. Probably listened to it about fifty-seven times today. It has that beautiful, scratchy, intimate bedroom-pop thing that makes you feel you’re sitting in the same room as your very talented Australian sensation of a neighbor. Er, neighbour. Lovely!

  9. Single Serving: Brian Reitzell – Last Summer (Lissvik Remix)

    They brought us meatballs, that-place-where-you-can-buy-a-twenty-dollar-sweater and that-place-where-you bought-a-dresser-couldn’t-assemble-it-then-drank-a-bottle-of-wine-and-maybe-cried. And they keep their music fresh, like their colorful candy fish. This remix by Dan Lissvik (one-half of Swedish duo Studio) is a perfect example. Brian Reitzell, former drummer of Air and Red Kross, is releasing his debut solo album including the single “Last Summer” – an eight-and-a-half minute Continue…

  10. Single Serving: Morningsiders – Empress

    It should come as no surprise that these east coast prepsters met at Columbia (much like their not-so-distant predecessors, Vampire Weekend). This tune is so sweet and light, with just the right amount of magical charm and emotional truth. Don’t miss their DIY vid. Even Oprah has their back. Keep watching these gents.

  11. Single Serving: Emily King – Distance

    There are. Just can’t. No words. This song is a magical dreamscape of a composition that just sits in your soul for keeps. Emily King is a jazz vocalist working independently in NYC, after years of touring with the likes of folks such as John Legend, Erykah Badu, Alicia Keys and Floetry. Listen- and then Continue…
