  1. Alvvays – Alvvays

    Relatable and infectious, the debut record by Toronto-based jangle pop rockers Alvvays (pronounced “always” in case you were wondering) is proof that a band doesn’t need to surprise you to win over your heart. Indeed, the canvas of choice for the Molly Rankin-led band’s self-titled debut is fuzzy, reverb-heavy indie pop a la every fuzzy, reverb-heavy indie Continue…

    Alvvays is fuzzy, reverb-heavy indie pop a la every fuzzy, reverb-heavy indie band you've cherished over the past 30 years.

  2. Pairings Box 3rd Anniversary Mixtape and Giveaway

    “Nothing turns a house into a home like music and cooking.” I’m anonymously quoting a gift message that accompanied a recent Pairings Box gift because it perfectly sums up the reason we created both Turntable Kitchen and, later, the Pairings Box. We believe that happiness is being surrounded by family and friends, with a favorite record playing Continue…

  3. Single Serving: Yellerkin – Tools

    Brooklyn duo Yellerkin (Adrian Galvin and Luca Buccellati) impressed us last year with their debut EP and lead single “Solar Laws.” They’ve returned with a catchy and pulsating new single titled “Tools.” “‘Tools’ is a kind of anthemic generational song, but one that toes the line between triumph and tragedy” explains Galvin, who further adds “This song Continue…

  4. Single Serving: Thom Yorke – A Brain In A Bottle

    Earlier today, Thom Yorke (you know, the one from that Radiohead band) released a new album of material via BitTorrent Bundles. You can download the single “A Brain In A Bottle” and it’s music video for free and/or the whole album Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes for a mere $6.00. The album is also available on deluxe 180 gram white vinyl edition house Continue…

  5. Single Serving: Turtle Giant – Constellations

    Macau-by-way-of-São Paolo three-piece rockers Turtle Giant have been one of our favorite bands for a few years now. In fact, we even helped them release their debut EP All Hidden Places on vinyl primarily because we wanted a copy for our own record collection and figured many other folks felt the same way. We’re pretty amped Continue…

  6. Single Serving: Daniel Wilson – Heartbreaker

    There has never been a shortage of great music coming from Michigan. Indeed, very few states can boast a heritage as rich and essential as Michigan (i.e. all of Motown, Madonna, The White Stripes, The 60′s garage rock movement, etc). So Daniel Wilson isn’t the first artist hailing from The Wolverine State with a knack for penning an incredible hook, Continue…

  7. Single Serving: Black Honey – The Taste (demo)

    Brighton-based Black Honey sure know how to write a big and rocking pop song. In the past few months we’ve previously gushed over their initial offerings – the glistening “Teenager” and the darkly glamorous “Sleep Forever.” Those two cuts alone were more than enough for us to tap them as one of our favorite new bands. Well, Continue…

  8. Single Serving: Running In The Fog – $ign$

    San Francisco’s Running In The Fog (a.k.a. Amanda Harper) is back with a brand new cut of smooth, space-infused soul titled “$ign$.” Characteristic of the material from Harper’s excellent debut EP Silver, this one features an enigmatically dark groove built from a sparse electronic rhythm and Harper’s soulful vocals. It’s the first cut from her debut full length and it’s being released Continue…

  9. Single Serving: Mr Twin Sister – In The House

    Funky and sparkling, Mr Twin Sister‘s “In the House” is a perfect track to kick off the weekend. It breaks open with a tentative rhythm and occasional ivory flourishes before the bouncing dance groove gets fully lit with neon-bright disco lights and a lively, pulsating beat. I could say more, but I’d rather let your feet do the talking. In other words, Continue…

  10. Single Serving: Milosh – Right Never Comes

    Rhye frontman Mike Milosh (who performs simply under the name Milosh) just revealed a soft and pillowy new tune titled “Right Never Comes.” The steamy and seductive tune floats along a clicking rhythm and Milosh’s gorgeous croon. Rhye has announced that the tune will be debuted live on their upcoming tour (dates listed below). Rhye tour dates: 10-03 Continue…

  11. Single Serving: 18+ – Crow

    Los Angeles’ duo 18+ have managed to retain an impressive degree of anonymity since forming in 2011 (the duo’s real names remain a mystery). Of course, being anonymous isn’t the same as being completely unknown. Indeed, they’ve released a trio of critically acclaimed underground mixtapes and licensed tracks to Prada and Venice Biennale. So the pair, whoever they are, are doing something Continue…
