  1. Single Serving: Kurt Feldman – Unprepared

    This new single from Kurt Feldman (a.k.a. Ice Choir) is my new jam. It’s simply oozing with glistening synths, quietly danceable beats, and silvery, dreamy guitar riffs. We’re cruisin’ down the Rainbow Road again guys. If the name’s familiar but you can’t quite figure out why, it might be because of his work with either Continue…

    Take a listen to the silvery, glistening single "Unprepared" from Ice Choir.


  2. Single Serving: Angel Olsen – Shut Up Kiss Me

    Stop what ever you were doing: Angel Olsen has a brand new single and music video titled “Shut Up Kiss Me” and, naturally, it’s awesome sauce (much like the single/video for “Intern” – which you can see here). Pre-orders for the new album My Woman are here. “Do I need to give more attitude?”

  3. Single Serving: Hoops – Cool 2

    Bloomington, Indiana four-piece Hoops have the perfect jam to keep you cool during the balmy dog days of Summer. Appropriately titled “Cool 2” it’s a tight, breezy vibe that’s over before you know it. On repeat. You can nab this from Fat Possum records.

  4. Single Serving: Cymbals Eat Guitars – 4th Of July, Philadelphia (SANDY)

    Gah, is it just me or is this new Cymbals Eat Guitar material stupid good? I don’t know how many times I’ve listened to “Wish” already but that sax KILLS ME every damn time. And this latest single “4th Of July, Philadelphia (SANDY)” is just as nuts. That’s all I’m going to say about this stuff Continue…

  6. TK057: Baby Dayliner x Fusilier EP

    My CD collection once numbered more than 1000 discs. But over time, especially as digital music became more pervasive, I lost my appetite for broken jewel cases and flimsy, scratch-prone discs. Today my CD collection numbers well below 100 total. For that matter, I don’t own a CD player. I feel little nostalgia for the Continue…

  7. Single Serving: La Plage – Saint Antoine

    We’ve been La Plage fans for a little while now, but this new track “Saint Antoine” from the Belgian trio is something else. It’s both blissful and psychedelic. It’s like riding shotgun with Yoshi, celebrating arms in the air, after narrowly avoiding a blue shell of death to take first on Rainbow Road. There’s a little swag to it, but Continue…

  8. Single Serving: Archawah – Jungles

    We’re digging the shuffling, rhythmic groove of this latest single “Jungles” from Archawah. It’s the project of Chris Archibald and it’s the second taste he’s served up from his forthcoming self titled EP (drops June 20th) and we’re very proud to premiere it this morning. It’ll sound mighty fine tumbling out of your speakers. Mighty. Fine.

  10. Single Serving: Cerise – Smoke Screen Dreams

    This vibe “Smoke Screen Dreams” from LA by way of Chicago songwriter Cerise is the single best new piece of music I’ve heard this week. It’s airy and darkly romantic with serious presence. It’s the opener and title track from her debut which drops June 24th.

  11. June 2016 Mixtape (courtesy of West Elm)

We’re also happy to share the mixtape with you right here on TK. We packed it full of awesome music including Continue…
