  1. Single Serving: Angel Olsen – May As Well

    As we previously noted, Angel Olsen‘s excellent Burn Your Fire For No Witness is getting the deluxe treatment. The digital only deluxe edition includes 5 bonus tracks including the previously released “All Right Now” (which you can stream here). It also includes “May As Well” and “Endless Road” which will be familiar to anyone who scored a Continue…

    Take a listen to the bonus track "May As Well" from Angel Olsen's excellent 'Burn Your Fire For No Witness'.

  2. Single Serving: Shamir – On The Regular

    Pic by Aaron Richter. Las Vegas’ Shamir is easily one of our favorite new discoveries from 2014. His Northtown EP was one of those fantastic debuts that seemed to spring up from nowhere. It turns out we aren’t alone in our appreciation either. He’s recently signed with XL Recordings and he’s already filed a video for new track “On Continue…

  3. Single Serving: Tashaki Miyaki – The Beautiful Ones (Prince Cover)

    Los Angeles dream-pop duo Tashaki Miyaki have laid down a cover of Prince’s “The Beautiful Ones” (from his majesty’s beloved Purple Rain LP). It’s a subtle, shimmery take on the tune with sparsely thread percussion and a warped, flowing melody. Take a listen.

  4. Single Serving: BAILE & Camille Corazón – Too Much

    Brooklyn, New York producer BAILE teams up with producer/vocalist Camille Corazón for his latest single “Too Much.” Despite the title, it’s a subtle, smooth-rolling groove with airy ambiance and tight percussion. Take a listen.

  5. Single Serving: Black Honey – Bloodlust (Demo)

    Earlier today, Brighton-based critic’s darlings Black Honey released the fourth and final single “Bloodlust” from their debut EP. It’s a raucous, snarling stomper with an explosive beat, wet reverb-soaked guitar riffs, and swagger-filled vocals. Fiery, propulsive, and psych-tinged, it’s another reason to love these rock ‘n roll up-and-comers. The physical edition of the EP is on limited-edition CD and Continue…

  6. Single Serving: Oceaán – Veritas

    “Veritas,” the latest single from Manchester’s Oceaán (a.k.a. producer Oliver Ceanis), is a mesmerizing mash of visceral textures, taut rhythms, and clean melodies that walks the fine line between experimental electronic production and r&b. It’s also the first single from the up-and-coming producer’s new The Grip EP (due out on B3SCI on November 17th). Ceanis explains his inspiration for the Continue…

  7. Single Serving: Yumi Zouma – Alena

    New Zealand’s Yumi Zouma are having a nice year. They’ve received praise from several well respected critics, scored opening gigs for Lorde, and are set to play Iceland Airwaves followed by stops in the US and UK (Bay Area residents can catch them on November 20th with Mr Little Jeans at the Rickshaw). Their latest Continue…

  8. Single Serving: Leon Bridges – Coming Home

    There’s retro and then there’s this. On his debut tracks, Fort Worth songwriter Leon Bridges doesn’t just reclaim the sounds of early Southern soul and gospel, he writes songs as if he were possessed by the ghost of Sam Cooke himself. For example, his single “Coming Home” sways across the floor with an easy lo-fi groove, bluesy rhythm and low Continue…

  9. Single Serving: Ghost Loft – Be Easy

    Today just got a little better thanks to Pairings Box alum Ghost Loft (a.k.a. producer Danny Choi). Earlier this morning he released his latest luxuriously smooth groove, “Be Easy.” It’s a subtly textured vibe with a slick, tight beat, shimmery ambiance, and just the right amount of crackle to accompany Choi as he softly croons, “We don’t Continue…

  10. Single Serving: Tom Lark – Never Be Your Man

    New Zealand-based songwriter Tom Lark is set for a break out year. He’s recently inked a deal with Universal, opened for Elvis Costello, and released an excellent new EP. The five track EP is a pretty solid effort from start to finish, but we’ve been particularly hooked on the track “Never Be Your Man.” It features an easy-going melody Continue…

  11. Single Serving: Sleater-Kinney – Bury Our Friends

    A big shout out to the universe for being awesome today. There’d been hints that a Sleater-Kinney reunion might be in the works for some time now, and earlier today those rumors were confirmed as true when the Sleater-Kinney camp announced that the incredibly beloved trio are back with a new album titled No Cities To Love which will Continue…
