  1. Yumi Zouma covering Oasis for SOUNDS DELICIOUS!

    We know we’ve been quiet since the campaign ended, but we can promise you that SOUNDS DELICIOUS is having a very busy summer. We’ve been working hard to finalize deals to bring several more artists into the mix (we *think* we’re almost there) and to coordinate the recording schedules of the artists already involved. In Continue…

    We are excited to announce that Yumi Zouma will cover one of the best selling records of the 90s for SOUNDS DELICIOUS.




  2. Allrecipes Halloween Playlist

    We’re excited to partner with Allrecipes Magazine again to craft a fun and edgy soundtrack for an adult Halloween party. With a few notable exceptions (i.e. a couple of masterpieces) we skipped the cheesy Halloween staples (it’s no mistake we didn’t include “Monster Mash”) in favor of some tunes with a dark/supernatural theme. We also Continue…

  3. Single Serving: Car Seat Headrest – Does It Feel Good (To Say Goodbye?)

    Car Seat Headrest‘s Teens of Denial easily ranks as one of our favorite records of the year. It’s simply jam packed with witty lyricism, engaging compositions, and total vibes. Yeah, we’re all about those vibes, man. Earlier this morning they shared a new track called “Does If Feel Good (To Say Goodbye?)” and it’s a Continue…

  5. Single Serving: Dogbreth – Do You Really Want Me

    Need more rock n roll in your life? We’ve got your back, friend. This latest tune “Do You Really Want Me” from Seattle/Phoenix based Dogbreth will hit all the right notes. It’s packed full of jangly guitar riffs, self-conscious lyrics (“I feel nervous around my friends”), and a little fire for the chorus. It follows Continue…

  6. Single Serving: Sloucher – Certainty

    This new single from Seattle-based Sloucher has me feeling awfully proud of my new home in the PNW. It’s bubbly like a Summer afternoon chilling at Golden Gardens. Brisk like a walk around Green Lake. Hip like bar-hopping for cocktails in Capitol Hill. If you’re not picking up the vibes I’m dropping, let’s just say it’s ridiculously, stupidly fun Continue…

  7. TK059: Lucius – What We Have (To Change) EP

    It’s hard to imagine our featured artist this month needs much in the way of an introduction. Brooklyn-based Lucius, founded by Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig, have been critically acclaimed since their debut album Wildewoman dropped in 2013. They’ve been praised by The New York Times, NPR, Pitchfork, The Guardian, Rolling Stone, and pretty much Continue…

  8. Single Serving: Tender – Outside

    Very excited to receive new music from Pairings Box alum’s TENDER in the inbox this morning. Maybe even more excited to see that they’ve signed to Partisan Records (Torres, Pure Bathing Culture, Sylvan Esso, Deer Tick, etc). Congrats guys! The latest single, “Outside”, is a lush, slow-burning r&b groove dripping with psychedelic accoutrements. It sets Continue…

  11. The 27 Best Cover Songs Of All Time

    I know there are people who say they don’t like covers. Those people are crazy. In fact, saying you don’t like covers is sorta like an admission that you have literally no idea what in the hell you’re doing when you listen to music. Yes, some covers are terrible, but some covers are incredible. Some covers take a Continue…
