  1. 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…

    The latest single from The Tallest Man On Earth showcases a broader musical palate than we've seen from his previous efforts.

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. Single Serving: Natalie Prass – Why Don’t You Believe In Me

    Hearing this song from Nashville singer Natalie Prass had me thinking of sounds both classic and current. Blending elements of soul, R&B, jazz and pop might seem ambitious, but ‘Why Don’t You Believe In Me’ is so wonderfully crafted that it all feels right. The one thing that struck me upon first listen is how Continue…

  9. Single Serving: Bully – Milkman

    Nashville band Bully just dropped the lead single from their upcoming self-released EP and it’s a certified banger. Led by singer Alicia Bognanno, the fuzzed out “Milkman” is a fast paced bit of pop-punk infused indie with some garage rock influences to boot. It’s just unfortunate that before you know it, the just over 2-minute Continue…

  10. Single Serving: Crying – Batang Killjoy

    If you’re in need of some seriously fun melodies combined with epic video game sounds, you’ll want to press play on the latest offering from Crying. And that description merely scratches the surface of the band’s sound. The delicate vocals of lead singer Elaiza Santos float underneath the calculated yet chaotic mix – creating something Continue…

  11. Single Serving: Restorations – Misprint

    Philadelphia is a city with a great musical heritage and continues to produce plenty of great bands. Enter Restorations, a Philly band who wears influences like The Replacements, Bruce Springsteen and especially, in my opinion, Constantines, on their sleeve. But instead of coming across as a mere copycat, Restorations exist in their own musical realm. Continue…
