  1. Single Servings: Lil Silva – Don’t You Love (Feat. BANKS)

    UK producer Lil Silva teams up with one our favorite hotly tipped artists, BANKS, for this jam. It’s a track from Lil Silva’s up-coming Mabel EP. It opens with a warbled ambiance and Lil Silva’s softly crooned vocals before the low end hits and BANKS struts across the stage and momentarily steals the spotlight. You can preorder Continue…

    Hotly tipped artists Lil Silva and BANKS team up for a simmering electro jam on "Don't You Love"

  2. Single Serving: FKA Twigs – Pendulum

    This new vibe “Pendulum” from FKA Twigs might just make you tingle. Initially it sets off with an clicking, clockwork-like precision before bursting into a kaleidoscopic swirl of warm synths, bubbling bass, and skittering snare drums to accompany her mostly breathless, feather-light croon. It’s pretty incredible. You can pre-order her debut LP with a bonus 7″ and 4 art prints from Continue…

  3. Single Serving: Laura Doggett – Phoenix

    With “Phoenix,” the newest mistress of dark pop has emerged. For Laura Doggett’s debut song, the title is fitting—the British artist rose out of obscurity and (if we have anything to say about it) is on the fast track to join the ranks of electro croon-queens Banks and MØ. The track’s seamless, eerie production comes Continue…

  4. Jungle – Jungle

    Following a series of no less than six singles dropped over the past year, UK-based duo Jungle have earned our attention with a slick mix of smokey soul, swagger-filled indie funk, and headphones-friendly disco. With that much hustle, it was easy to pick them as one of our top new artists to watch this year. And, perhaps unsurprisingly, they also demonstrated that they Continue…

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

    wonderlust-IYES-opt

    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…

    Welcome to the freshly baked download page for TK034. This month we’ve been inspired by the heat of warm summer nights and the mix reflects that theme. It’s a nice blend of scorched rock n roll and steamy synth pop. As always, it was compiled by listening to hours and hours of submissions and picking out our Continue…

  7. Single Serving: Júníus Meyvant – “Color Decay”

    Unlike its title suggests, “Color Decay”—the debut single from Iceland’s Júníus Meyvant—is timeless. The track not only hits on the wonder of Van Morrison and Belle and Sebastian with its playful percussion and upbeat acoustic rhythms, but it also calls out to current characters like Edward Sharpe and The Lumineers with its heart-tugging, broad sweeping Continue…

  8. Pitchfork Festival 2014 Photo Diary & Wrap-Up

    Pitchfork Festival proved to be Christmas in July for us. It was one sweet, wild ride of a weekend (that felt more like fifteen minutes) of beautiful music, warm Goose Island beers, and fantastical people watching (sunflower prints, septum piercings and candy-colored hair all in heavy rotation). It was the coolest kids of the moment (Kendrick Lamar, Perfect Pussy, Continue…

  9. Single Serving: Blake Mills – Don’t Tell Our Friends About Me

    Human beings make mistakes. That’s essentially the statement Blake Mills is making with the incredibly self-aware “Don’t Tell Our Friends About Me.” This is a beautifully written, impeccably produced and most of all, honest, folk record. And it certainly doesn’t suffer from having longtime collaborator Fiona Apple and musical mastermind Jon Brion helping out with Continue…

  10. 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…

  11. Single Serving: Osca – Blood

    London-based four-piece Osca return with a new and complete version of their infectious debut “Blood” produced by Mikko Gordon (Femme, Atoms For Peace). “It’s about feeling in limbo and holding-on in hope of reassurance” explains frontman Jack Kenworthy who wrote the track back in the Autumn of 2013. The track is scheduled to appear on a Continue…
