  1. Single Serving: CATHEDRALS – OOO AAA

    The hype cycle can launch a band’s career nearly overnight these days. That’s been true for our friends in CATHEDRALS. The San Francisco-based duo (Brodie Jenkins and Johnny Hwin) seem to burst out of the gate to critical acclaim and a devoted fan base. Still, their success has come as little surprise to anyone familiar with their Continue…

    The latest cut by San Francisco's CATHEDRALS is mesmerizing and kaleidoscopic.

  2. Single Serving: Lea Santee – New Waves

    I’m in love with this (single) “Open Water” by Austrian duo Lea Santee (i.e. vocalist Lea Stöger and producer Manuel Hosp). The beguiling cut is built around a tapestry of warm, spliced vocal tones and slow moving waves of deep synths to accompany Stöger’s croon. They’re definitely one to watch.

  3. Single Serving; Tennis – I’m Callin’

    Denver husband and wife duo Tennis further experiment with disco-grooves and dreamy pop vibes on their latest track “I”m Callin’.” It’s bright, springy and neon-lit – and, more importantly, a ton of fun. It’s the second single from their forthcoming LP Ritual In Repeat which drops on September 9th via Communion. If you missed it before Continue…

  4. Single Serving: HAIM – My Song 5 feat. A$AP Ferg

    Last month HAIM released a new remix of their single “My Song 5″ featuring a verse from A$AP Ferg. The remix was dropped to celebrate HAIM’s seventh year together as a band. The original version of the song appeared on their excellent album Days Are Gone (which you can score on vinyl here). Today they Continue…

  5. Single Servings: Visuals – A Pixel

    This new track “A Pixel” from our friend and Pairings Box alumni Andrew Fox (a.k.a. Visuals) leaves me feeling giddy. Produced by Nicolas Jaar and featuring guitar by Darkside’s Dave Herrington, it’s bright and upbeat without even approaching saccharine. In fact, it’s a relatively understated composition with a bubbling ambiance and smooth, shuffling groove to accompany Continue…

  6. Single Serving: Darkside – Gone Too Soon

    Darkside, the project of Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington, have announced that they the project is coming to a close – for now at least. We listed their album Psychic as one of the top albums of 2013. As they prepare for their final show, they’ve decided to release a pair of excellent b-sides from the Continue…

  7. Single Serving: Samuel Proffitt – Sladky (feat. Khai)

    Samuel Proffitt is a young and promising producer of Boston. “Sladky” is the very first song to emerge from his forthcoming debut EP, Blue Notebook No. 10 out later this year (no official release date though). The haunting electronic gem, dipped in synthetic airy atmospheres, showcases vocals from Texan singer/songwriter Khai. You can grab “Sladky” Continue…

  8. Single Serving: Racing Glaciers – Animal

    In countless ways the music industry has changed dramatically over the past two decades. The way we consume music has changed; the way it’s promoted has changed; and even the way it’s created has changed. Nonetheless, one thing that will always be true is that if you want to succeed in the music industry you need both talent and hustle. After releasing three excellent EPs Continue…

  9. Single Serving: Captain Murphy – Cosplay

    Captain Murphy, a.k.a. the rapping alter ego of Flying Lotus, has released a new single for the Adult Swim Singles 2014 series. The track, “Cosplay,” is a jazzy, beautifully textured jam with Murphy’s characteristically tumbling flow oozing rhymes about a perverted, selfie-snapping girl into cosplay. Take a listen. Download if for free here after August 18. You’ll also find tracks by Continue…

  10. Single Serving: Eliot Sumner – “Information”

    Eliot Sumner, AKA I Blame Coco, AKA Sting’s daughter, is officially climbing the branches of her family’s tree. “Information,” the sprawling seven-minute title track off of her recently released EP, is a callback to classic-era the Killers and a time when U2’s latest single wouldn’t compel you to roll your eyes. With its big synth Continue…

  11. Single Serving: Zella Day – Compass

    Arizona songwriter Zella Day has just released the latest single from her forthcoming debut EP. “Compass” is a slow-burning ballad of light, springy keys and subtle percussion to accompany Day’s lovely croon. It’s gentle and evocative. She describes it as an ode to her love for her home-state Arizona. Take a listen below. Read our interview with Continue…
