  1. Single Serving: Shura – Indecision (Jungle Remix)

    Shura‘s “Indecision” got remixed by Jungle and I can’t imagine a better way to kick off the weekend. The new take on the tune inserts a trace of Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” into a spacious, disco vibe. It’s smoooooooth. Record collectors can grab a white label version of this tomorrow as part of Record Store Continue…

    Take a listen to Jungle's remix of Shura's "Indecision."


  2. Single Serving: Stealing Sheep – Greed

    Stealing Sheep have been capturing my attention in a big way recently. For example, their slow grooving latest single “Greed” is a hallucinatory cut of psychedelic pop that’s as intoxicating as it is warming. Likewise, the bright and heady “Pas Réel” (a French version of the album’s title track) is a perfect slice of off-kilter Continue…

  3. Single Serving: Tei Shi – Verde EP

    Our friend Tei Shi‘s new Verde EP dropped the other day and it’s quickly proving to be one of our favorite releases this year.  It’s both cerebral and visceral, packed full of beautifully textured vibes (closing track “Get It” in particular is delicious headphones candy) and powerfully kinetic riffs (single “Bassically” is pure Beast Mode). Continue…

  4. Single Serving: Institute – Perpetual Ebb

    Catharsis is the debut album from Austin-based punk rockers Institute and if the rest of it sounds anything like it’s first single “Perpetual Ebb” then it’ll be a ball of pure fire. I don’t know about you, but I could use a lot more like this in my life. Catharsis drops June 9th via Sacred Continue…

  5. Single Serving: Legs – Altitud

    Brooklyn-by-way-of-Seattle newcomers LEGS are making an impression with a pair of irresistible new singles. For example, their latest release “Jungle” is a bright, driving jam with a funky rhythm and a catchy-as-hell hook (oh, and it has a fun video to accompany it). Meanwhile, the previously released “Top Of The World” oozes with dance hall-ready Continue…

  6. Single Serving: Empress Of – Water Water

    Lorely Rodriguez, a.k.a. Empress Of, just announced her debut record which is scheduled to drop via Terrible Records later this Summer. To go along with the announcement she’s sharing the album’s first single “Water Water.” Here’s what her label had to say about the track: It’s New Years Eve and Lorely is by herself in Continue…

  8. Single Serving: Astronauts, etc. – I Know

    Astronauts, etc. is the project of classically-trained, UC Berkeley-grad Anthony Ferraro (he also plays keyboards for Toro y Moi). His latest single “I Know” is pulled from his forthcoming album Mind Out Wandering and may be his best track to date. It’s a brightly lit tune with a springy, featherlight melody and an incredibly warm Continue…

  9. Single Serving: Her – Quite Like

    Fun, smooth and upbeat, the debut track “Quite Like” from Rennes, France duo Her has been stuck in my head all day. It features a slick groove and playfully sexy lyrics, “I quite like your hair / I quite like your eyes / I quite like your breasts when you undress.” Take a listen and Continue…

  10. TK043: Speelburg – Kline b/w Aubrey

    This month we’re incredibly excited to introduce one of our favorite new music discoveries: Speelburg. Written, directed, and produced by Brighton-based producer and songwriter Noah Sacré, Speelburg’s music is as sonically adventurous as it is beautifully cinematic. With only a pair of singles to his name (both of which are collected on this single), he’s Continue…

  11. Single Serving: Wilsen – Garden

    After a pair of excellent EPs, Wilsen (the three piece band led by Tasmin Wilson) has earned a reputation as a band capable or crafting powerful, nuanced, and mature tunes. So, it’s little surprise that the first single “Garden” from their forthcoming debut album fits that mold. “Garden” is a tumbling, fitful tune that feels Continue…
