  1. 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…

    Take a listen to the first single "The Giving In" from The Velvet Teen's first album in over nine years.


  2. Single Serving: mewithoutYou – Red Cow

    Is it art rock, post-hardcore, indie rock or maybe punk rock? Philly eccentrics mewithoutYou have always been difficult to pin down and they seem to prefer it that way. The band is set to release their sixth LP in June and “Red Cow” continues to showcase their knack for uniquely structured, lyrically dense songwriting. And while the Continue…

  3. Single Serving: Hop Along – Waitress

    If you were to ask me about the albums of the current decade that mean the most to me, Get Disowned, the 2012 album from Philly’s Hop Along, would surely make that list. The LP is full of strange sounds and idiosyncratic songwriting and I continue to hear new and wonderful things with each listen. Continue…

  4. Single Serving: Anna B Savage – 1

    “It’s been said that I am strong and they’re not entirely wrong” singer-songwriter Anna B Savage admits about halfway through her powerful single ‘1.’ And strong is definitely the word I would use to describe the London musician’s sound. The track moves from finger plucked delicate guitar playing and intimate lyrics before opening up into Continue…

  5. Single Serving: The Tallest Man On Earth – Sagres

    Kristian Matsson is back! The Swedish troubadour who records as The Tallest Man On Earth has unleashed the first single from his upcoming fourth album Dark Bird Is Home. “Sagres” is reminiscent of the classic, folk influenced sound we’ve come to expect from him, but showcases a much broader musical palate than with previous efforts. Continue…

  6. Single Serving: The Weather Station – Way It Is, Way It Could Be

    The Weather Station is the musical endeavor of Toronto based singer/songwriter Tamara Lindeman and “Way It Is, Way It Could Be” is the opening track from her forthcoming third album, Loyalty. The song evokes the most hushed work of fellow folkie and countrywoman Joni Mitchell as Lindeman’s voice floats over ebbs and flows of instrumentation. Continue…

  7. Single Serving: Waxahatchee – Air

    With her first two albums, singer-songwriter Katie Crutchfield showcased an uncanny ability for writing honest, confessional indie rock. Under the moniker Waxahatchee, Crutchfield released American Weekend and Cerulean Salt in 2012 and 2013 respectively – and there is a definite urgency in both the production and lyrics on each release. Two years later and “Air,” Continue…

  8. Top Music & Beer Pairings of 2014 (by Josh Henderson)

    This year brought a lot of changes to Turntable Kitchen. In addition to the launch of the new website and the release of new products in the shop, 2014 also marked the first year we’ve had regular contributors on the site. Those contributors are a huge part of why this year’s also been the best Continue…

  9. Single Serving: Night Beds – Me, Liquor and God

    In 2013 Nashville native Winston Yellen (who records as Night Beds) released Country Sleep, a confident album full of folk-tinged, guitar driven tracks. He’s remained pretty quiet since, but recently dropped the new single “Me, Liquor and God” which signifies the beginning of a bold new sound for Night Beds. The wistful melodies of songs Continue…

  10. Single Serving: American Wrestlers – I Can Do No Wrong

    Not much is known of American Wrestlers just yet – aside from it being a project by an artist who was born in Scotland and is now based in St. Louis, Missouri. I guess for now he’s letting this single speak for itself. “I Can Do No Wrong” is a beautiful little piece of lo-fi Continue…

  11. Single Serving: Jessica Pratt – Back, Baby

    San Francisco singer Jessica Pratt is set to release On Your Own Love Again, the follow-up to her 2012 self-titled debut album. The first offering from the upcoming LP is the tranquil folk of “Back, Baby.” The song opens with three strummed chords as Pratt softly sings “sometimes I pray for the rain” and that Continue…
