  1. Single Serving: Evy Jane – Worry Heart

    It feels like we’ve been waiting forever for a new release from Evy Jane (a.k.a. Vancouver duo Evelyn Mason and Jeremiah Klein). In fact, it’s been over two years since they became one of TK’s favorite up-and-coming projects based on the strength of their debut tracks. Unfortunately, their output since that time has been relatively meager. Thankfully, they prove Continue…

    Hear a pair of sexy, gorgeous grooves from Vancouver-based duo Evy Jane's brand new EP.

  2. Single Serving: Cass McCombs – Night Of The World

    Enigmatic songwriter Cass McCombs and iconic 90′s rockers Meat Puppets just announced a co-headlining tour through the good ole’ United States. To commemorate the occasion they’re releasing a split 7″ single which features a pair of brand new songs by McCombs, “Night Of The World” and “Evangeline,” alongside a pair of covers by the Meat Puppets, “(Hey Baby), Que Paso” (originally by Continue…

  3. Zammuto – Anchor

    If you ever took an advanced art class, you probably had one person in your class who was lightyears ahead of everyone else in terms of both innate talent and creativity. This was the person who had the most insane/ambitious ideas for projects and somehow always – always – executed them flawlessly. I have a suspicion that Nick Zammuto, Continue…

  4. Single Serving: Lauryn Hill – Black Rage

    At first, I was tempted to leave this here without comment, and, to some extent, I’m still going to do just that. I think the message speaks for itself given recent events. Besides, if that’s not enough, the lyrics themselves provide all of the additional context you could possibly need. Still, I can’t resist simply noting Continue…

  5. Single Serving: CATHEDRALS – OOO AAA

    The hype cycle can launch a band’s career nearly overnight these days. That’s been true for our friends in CATHEDRALS. The San Francisco-based duo (Brodie Jenkins and Johnny Hwin) seem to burst out of the gate to critical acclaim and a devoted fan base. Still, their success has come as little surprise to anyone familiar with their Continue…

  6. Single Serving: Lea Santee – New Waves

    I’m in love with this (single) “Open Water” by Austrian duo Lea Santee (i.e. vocalist Lea Stöger and producer Manuel Hosp). The beguiling cut is built around a tapestry of warm, spliced vocal tones and slow moving waves of deep synths to accompany Stöger’s croon. They’re definitely one to watch.

  7. Single Serving; Tennis – I’m Callin’

    Denver husband and wife duo Tennis further experiment with disco-grooves and dreamy pop vibes on their latest track “I”m Callin’.” It’s bright, springy and neon-lit – and, more importantly, a ton of fun. It’s the second single from their forthcoming LP Ritual In Repeat which drops on September 9th via Communion. If you missed it before Continue…

  8. Single Serving: HAIM – My Song 5 feat. A$AP Ferg

    Last month HAIM released a new remix of their single “My Song 5″ featuring a verse from A$AP Ferg. The remix was dropped to celebrate HAIM’s seventh year together as a band. The original version of the song appeared on their excellent album Days Are Gone (which you can score on vinyl here). Today they Continue…

  9. Single Servings: Visuals – A Pixel

    This new track “A Pixel” from our friend and Pairings Box alumni Andrew Fox (a.k.a. Visuals) leaves me feeling giddy. Produced by Nicolas Jaar and featuring guitar by Darkside’s Dave Herrington, it’s bright and upbeat without even approaching saccharine. In fact, it’s a relatively understated composition with a bubbling ambiance and smooth, shuffling groove to accompany Continue…

  10. Single Serving: Darkside – Gone Too Soon

    Darkside, the project of Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington, have announced that they the project is coming to a close – for now at least. We listed their album Psychic as one of the top albums of 2013. As they prepare for their final show, they’ve decided to release a pair of excellent b-sides from the Continue…

  11. Single Serving: Racing Glaciers – Animal

    In countless ways the music industry has changed dramatically over the past two decades. The way we consume music has changed; the way it’s promoted has changed; and even the way it’s created has changed. Nonetheless, one thing that will always be true is that if you want to succeed in the music industry you need both talent and hustle. After releasing three excellent EPs Continue…
