  1. Single Servings: The Night VI – Wonderlust (IYES Remix)

    The Night VI‘s latest offering “Wonderlust” is an upbeat and bouncing tune with an irresistible melody. We were pretty much hooked on first listen. So we’re happy to see that our buds IYES liked it enough to try their hand at reinventing the tune. Indeed, as they’d done with their remix of Paperwhite‘s catchy summer jam “Magic” – IYES completely Continue…

    Hear IYES' rework of The Night VI's excellent single "Wonderlust."

  2. Single Serving: Phantogram – Black Out Days (Future Islands Remix)

    Here’s a remix worth a few minutes of your time (or maybe even a few hours). Future Islands take Phantogram’s “Black Out Days” and give the tune a whole new profile with darkly-lit synths and a slinking bass line. The result is both soaring and mysterious. Take a listen. Phantogram is heading out on tour in support of their sophomore Continue…

  3. Single Serving: Spoon – Inside Out

    We got a new Spoon jam for you this morning, but (fair warning) this isn’t the type of tune you’d normally expect from the band. It’s got a dreamy crystal palace-like vibe that glistens brightly with sparkling, feather-light harpsichord accents. In fact, the whole song would probably float away to the heavens if it wasn’t being held to the ground by a Continue…

  4. Single Servings: BANKS – Beggin For Thread

    Los Angeles’ goddess BANKS has treated us to a substantial portion of her debut LP already as she slowly teases out single after single. And, now, we get yet another bite by way of new single “Beggin For Thread.” It’s a shuffling, atmospheric jam that nicely balances both energy and ambiance. You can hear more of Banks’ Continue…

  5. Single Serving: Lia Ices – Higher

    Lia Ices latest single “Higher” is a strangely enigmatic summer trip. It’s filled with scorched guitar riffs, layered percussion, springy tropical keys, and a menagerie of textured sonic accents to accompany Lia’s sweetly crooned vocals. It’s playful, catchy and a little sexy. So, yeah, we’re blasting this one on repeat. It’s available for pre-order here. It’ll drop on September Continue…

  6. Single Serving: Sinkane – How We Be

    The Sudanese-raised and New York-based Sinkane (a.k.a. Ahmed Gallab) is definitely getting us pretty amped for his sophomore release Mean Love. Like the last taste he dished up, is latest single “How We Be” is both funky and soulful. Blinking keys, a funky rhythm and handclaps frame a toe-stepping, shoulder-swaying melody as Sinkane waxes about living the Continue…

  7. Single Serving: Vaults – Lifespan

    London-based trio Vaults have been on fire pretty much since the moment they uploaded their debut single “Cry No More” to Soundcloud back in August of last year. They’re first two singles have combined for over 800k plays on Soundcloud. Their first public gig in London this past May quickly sold out. And they just announced that their latest single “Vaults” Continue…

  8. The Bones of J.R. Jones – Dark Was The Yearling

    A strong cup of black coffee. Not stale diner coffee  – unfussy, small batch, brewed-with-love coffee. That’s what comes to my mind when I listen to the debut LP from The Bones of J.R. Jones. It’s bold, dark and energetic with a rustic, whiskey-tinted swagger. In other words, it’ll light you up while simultaneously filling you with a comforting warmth. Indeed, Jonathon Linaberry, the Continue…

  9. Single Serving: Chet Faker x GoldLink – On You

    Yours Truly & Adidas just unveiled the latest installment in their #songsfromscratch series in which, as the name implies, they partner up a pair of artists to collaborate and record a new song from scratch. This time they paired up the unlikely duo Chet Faker and GoldLink to record an original song together. I say Continue…

  10. Single Serving: Banoffee – Got It

    Banoffee is the solo project of Melbourne based singer/producer Martha Brown. Based on the quality of her latest single “Got It” I think you’re going to want to get to know her. Produced by Oscar Key Sung, it’s a bright and flickering synth-led pop r&b groove that is both catchy and enigmatic. We’ve spent a portion of our Continue…

  11. Single Serving: Tweedy – Wait For Love

    Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy and his son Spencer have a new band appropriately called Tweedy. Dad sings and plays guitar while his son lays down the beat. The duo will release their debut record Sukierae on September 23. Below you can hear two of the tracks for them album. “Wait For Love” is a crisp, swaying ballad with finger plucked guitar, Continue…
