  1. Single Serving: Pinegrove – Old Friends

    Montclair, New Jersey’s Pinegrove effortlessly blends elements of indie rock and folk to create music that sounds simultaneously familiar and original. This is due in large part to lead singer Evan Stephens Hall’s ease of delivery – as evidenced in their new single “Old Friends.” The track kicks off the set of songs on Cardinal, their upcoming official debut, and Continue…


  2. Single Serving: Kyle Morton & Matthew Thomas Ross – Book Of Matches

    If you’re familiar with Portland, Oregon band Typhoon then you’re probably familiar with the story of frontman Kyle Morton. His writing focuses heavily on themes of death – and understandably so – after having been diagnosed with a severe case of Lyme disease at a very young age. His new project, Book Of Matches – a Continue…

  3. Single Serving: Laura Stevenson – Torch Song

    On 2013’s excellent Wheel, Laura Stevenson sang of modern anxieties, existential dread, the negative effects of climate change – feeling all too unsure and wary of the world around her. In 2015 she is releasing an album entitled Cocksure. What a difference two years can make. The first single “Torch Song” is a bouncy, harmonic and incredibly catchy bit of Continue…

  4. Single Serving: Foxing – The Magdalene

    Following the release of their stunning debut The Albatross back in 2013 – St. Louis band Foxing have been on tour seemingly non-stop, developing a devoted fanbase along the way. But as it turns out, they also managed to find some time to record a follow-up. The album is entitled Dealer – and the first single “The Continue…

  5. Single Serving: Jake McMullen – Always

    Twenty-two year old singer-songwriter Jake McMullen cites Ryan Adams, Bon Iver and James Vincent McMorrow as musical influences – and after listening to his new single “Always,” those reference points make total sense. The song is an introspective, soul-baring ballad of loneliness, disillusionment and desperation carried by the conviction in McMullen’s voice. And while the Continue…

  6. Single Serving: Joanna Newsom – Sapokanikan

    It’s time to rejoice! Why? Well, because Joanna Newsom is back with a new song and accompanying video to go along with the announcement of Divers, her first album since 2010’s Have One On Me. The track, compositionally, follows in the footsteps of the more piano driven cuts from her previous record such as “Good Intentions Paving Continue…

  7. Single Serving: Beach Slang – Bad Art & Weirdo Ideas

    Music works best when it really connects with the listener. Enter Philadelphia’s Beach Slang, a band primarily concerned with finding that connection. After releasing two excellent EP’s last year, they’re readying a first full-length with a title as on the nose and Beach Slang-ish as it gets, The Things We Do To Find People Who Feel Continue…

  8. Single Serving: Long Beard – Porch

    Long Beard is the musical moniker of New Brunswick, New Jersey’s Leslie Bear. With news of her first full-length comes the single, “Porch,” a track that relies on the strength of Bear’s quiet, hypnotizing and melodic vocals which are complimented by the beautiful guitar tones that reverberate underneath. There is an airiness to the song in the Continue…

  9. Single Serving: Roadside Graves – Gospel Radio

    Roadside Graves are described as “secret New Jersey treasures” by Garden State label Don Giovanni Records – who will release their new album Acne/Ears this September. The first track from the upcoming full-length, “Gospel Radio,” recounts the divorce of frontman John Gleason’s parents and according to the singer represents a new direction for the band – who formed Continue…

  10. Single Serving: All Dogs – That Kind Of Girl

    Maryn Jones might be indie music’s hardest worker. Not only is she a member of Columbus indie-folk band Saintseneca but she recently released her debut solo album as Yowler, and her indie-pop trio All Dogs will drop their debut full-length Kicking Every Day at the end of the month. The album’s first single, “That Kind Of Girl,” Continue…

  11. Single Serving: The Velvet Teen – The Giving In

    Since the early aughts, California genre-benders The Velvet Teen have been crafting beautifully singular sounds – albeit, infrequently. Since 2002 the band have released three full-length albums and a handful of EP’s. It should also be noted that their 2004 LP Elysium remains the most important record in my life. Needless to say, when you love a band Continue…
