  1. Single Serving: Small Black – Boys Life

    Earlier this morning, Brooklyn’s Small Black announced their new album Best Blues will drop October 16th via the fine folks at Jagjaguwar. The album is described as “an album about loss, the specific loss of precious people in our lives, but also the loss of memories and the difficult fight to preserve them.” They’ve also Continue…

  2. Single Serving: IYES – No Wonder

    Before last week it’d been months since we’d heard any new music from IYES. Then, last week, they dropped the rainbow-hued “So Crazy” and casually mentioned that it was the first single from “a few EPs” they’d been working on. Well, it certainly hasn’t taken very long for them to hook us up with another taste. Today we get Continue…

  3. Single Serving: vōx – Claws

    I’m definitely feeling this new single “Claws” from vōx (a.k.a. Sarah Winters). It’s brand new and may be one of her strongest singles yet. It’s built around a sweeping and cinematic soundscape, swirling harp notes, hip hop-inspired rhythms, and (of course) Winters’ warm croon. Take a listen.

  4. Single Serving: Pure Bathing Culture – Pray For Rain

    We’re kinda gushing over this new Pure Bathing Culture single this afternoon. With a shimmery vibe and a grinding, danceable groove, “Pray For Rain” is going straight to heavy rotation. Beyond that, we’ll let it speak for itself. The new album Pray For Rain drops on October 23 and you can pre-order it now from Continue…

  5. The Best Vinyl Subscription Services For Record Collectors

    I’m going to let you in on a secret. Some of the most valuable vinyl records released in the past several decades were (and continue to be) released through vinyl subscription services. Nirvana’s Love Buzz b/w Big Cheese 7″ was released in the Sub Pop (now defunct) 7″ subscription series and copies are now going Continue…

  6. Single Serving: Kurt Vile – Pretty Pimpin

    Kurt Vile has announced the follow up to his excellent 2013 Wakin On A Pretty Daze. Titled b’lieve i’m goin down… it drops in September via Matador Records. You can preorder the album on 2xLP or deluxe 3xLP (with bonus tracks) here. He’s also released the album’s first single/video for the track “Pretty Pimpin” which Continue…

  7. Single Serving: IYES – So Crazy

    Our friends in Brighton’s IYES tell us they are back with a few(!) new EPs. We’ll have to wait to hear them in their entirety but for now we can sink our teeth into the swirling, rainbow-hued “So Crazy.” Built around co-ed vocals and a very danceable groove, it’s another hit for the duo. Enjoy!

  8. Single Serving: Mac Demarco – No Other Heart

    Mac DeMarco’s eight-track mini-LP Another One is sounding awfully promising based on what we’ve heard so far. Today we get another taste via jazzy, bright new single “No Other Heart.” As a reminder, you can pre-order the LP on limited-edition wax (with a bonus slip mat) here.

  9. Single Serving: Rayland Baxter – Young Man

    As of about an hour ago Rayland Baxter‘s forthcoming LP Imaginary Man has currently become my most anticipated album at this particular moment in time (Sorry Widowspeak, your album isn’t set to drop till September 4th). Dramatically different from his first two beautiful, bright and rather upbeat releases, “Young Man” takes a dark turn towards the Continue…

  10. Single Serving: Alex Burey – Waiting On Tomorrow

    20-year-old London producer and multi-instrumentalist Alex Burey follows up on two self-produced four-track EPs with his new single titled “Waiting On Tomorrow.” The track was recorded in both New York and London and features contributions from The Dap-Kings collective, the legendary backing band on Amy Winehouse’s “Back To Black.” It’s a blissful, intimate slab of psychedelic soul, bringing Continue…

  11. Single Serving: Kiiara – Tennessee

    A couple of weeks ago we shared the debut track from Chicago-based Kiiara and it’s been in heavy rotation ever since. She’s already returned with the dancehall-friendly jam “Tennessee” and it’s another big, bubbling pop vibe.  Take a listen and see for yourself.
