  1. TK046: vōx – vōx EP

    She’s been called the “first great mystery act of 2015” and, in a recent rising artist feature, Pigeons & Planes raved over her “commanding” vocals and “forward thinking” production. Indeed, vōx, the brainchild of Los Angeles’ Sarah Winters, has been receiving critical praise from every corner including enthusiastic nods here on Turntable Kitchen and in Continue…

    We're excited to announce that we're featuring the debut EP by Los Angeles-based vōx in this month's Pairings Box.


  2. Single Serving: Little Boots – Get Things Done

    London’s Victoria Christina Hesketh, a.k.a. Little Boots, is returning with her third studio album Working Girl later this month. Yesterday she dropped the album’s latest single “Get Things Done” and it’s a total jam. Neon-lit and built around a driving rhythm it’s danceable, upbeat and completely infectious. Give it a listen and see for yourself. Continue…

  3. Single Serving: White Reaper – Pills

    Hot damn. Louisville’s fiery and snarling rock n’ rollers White Reaper cut some radical, raucous jams. Take, for example, their latest single “Pills” from their upcoming debut album White Reaper Does It Again. It’s a bright but gritty stomper built around jagged guitar riffs, taut bass, and pummeling percussion. Best of all, it’s FUN. I think I’m Continue…

  4. Single Serving: Mr Twin Sister – The Erotic Book

    Hot off the release of their new album (and new name) Mr Twin Sister have quickly returned with a slick, sensual new one-off single titled “The Erotic Book.” It’s a subtle, mesmerizing jam that proves to be pure headphone sugar.

  5. Single Serving: Beach House – Sparks

    Baltimore duo Beach House recently announced the follow up to their incredible 2012 album Bloom.  Titled Depression Cherry the new album is already available for pre-order from SubPop. Today they’ve shared the album’s first single “Sparks” which adopts a decidedly shoegaze approach to the duo’s style. Take a listen below.

  6. Single Serving: Gallant – Weight In Gold

    Los Angeles’ Gallant has kept us on the edge of our seats for years now but, with all due respect to his excellent debut EP, his latest singles have proven to be next level stuff. And this brand new cut? Let’s just say that “Weight In Gold” is the greatest realization of Gallant’s potential as a songwriter and vocalist Continue…

  7. Wolf Alice – My Love Is Cool

    As someone who discovered a love of music in the early-to-mid 90’s, I spent a lot of time listening to music that could be loosely described as either grunge rock or, more generically, alternative rock. I obsessed over albums by bands like Nirvana, Hole, Elastica, Pearl Jam, Blur, the Pixies, and so on. The thing about Continue…

  8. Single Serving: Palmistry – Memory Taffeta

    This new single “Memory Taffeta” from London’s Palmistry sparkles like a clear, perfectly cut diamond. The sentiment is pure r&b vibe while the groove subtly balances dancehall rhythms with minimalist electronica. All in all, I’d say it’s pretty hard to resist. See for yourself.
