  2. TK058: Topless – So Below EP

    If you’ve ever spent more than twenty minutes seriously hunting for the perfect song to soundtrack a special occasion, your Tuesday night dinner, a backyard barbecue, or just for boozing it up with friends – then you’re our type of people. After all, some jams are perfect for getting cozy with your significant other while Continue…

  3. 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…

  4. Single Serving: My Morning Jacket – Magic Bullet

    I love everything about this new My Morning Jacket jam but particularly the sentiment of the accompanying note: “violence is never the answer. only love. we all need to be a part of the discussion. part of the solution. how long will it take before we realize- we are all the same. this is not idealistic dreaming. Continue…

  5. Single Serving: Still Corners – Lost Boys

      Big ole fan of Still Corners here and they have a new single that I’m feeling. It’s called “Lost Boys” and it’s sleek, slick and deceptively snarling. At the outset it feels like a cold, repetitive vibe that sails by like unassuming landscape on a long drive. As it progresses, though, it proves to be much more Continue…

  6. Single Serving: Kurt Feldman – Unprepared

    This new single from Kurt Feldman (a.k.a. Ice Choir) is my new jam. It’s simply oozing with glistening synths, quietly danceable beats, and silvery, dreamy guitar riffs. We’re cruisin’ down the Rainbow Road again guys. If the name’s familiar but you can’t quite figure out why, it might be because of his work with either Continue…

  7. Single Serving: Angel Olsen – Shut Up Kiss Me

    Stop what ever you were doing: Angel Olsen has a brand new single and music video titled “Shut Up Kiss Me” and, naturally, it’s awesome sauce (much like the single/video for “Intern” – which you can see here). Pre-orders for the new album My Woman are here. “Do I need to give more attitude?”

  8. Single Serving: Hoops – Cool 2

    Bloomington, Indiana four-piece Hoops have the perfect jam to keep you cool during the balmy dog days of Summer. Appropriately titled “Cool 2” it’s a tight, breezy vibe that’s over before you know it. On repeat. You can nab this from Fat Possum records.

  9. Single Serving: Cymbals Eat Guitars – 4th Of July, Philadelphia (SANDY)

    Gah, is it just me or is this new Cymbals Eat Guitar material stupid good? I don’t know how many times I’ve listened to “Wish” already but that sax KILLS ME every damn time. And this latest single “4th Of July, Philadelphia (SANDY)” is just as nuts. That’s all I’m going to say about this stuff Continue…

And we have lots of news to share with you. First off, Foxygen’s Jonathan Rado has been busy working on his own projects and producing that incredible debut Continue…

  11. TK057: Baby Dayliner x Fusilier EP

    My CD collection once numbered more than 1000 discs. But over time, especially as digital music became more pervasive, I lost my appetite for broken jewel cases and flimsy, scratch-prone discs. Today my CD collection numbers well below 100 total. For that matter, I don’t own a CD player. I feel little nostalgia for the Continue…
