  1. June 2016 Mixtape (courtesy of West Elm)

    The good folks at West Elm asked us to prepare a Summer mixtape for their blog Front + Main. You can check out the post Kasey wrote (plus a recipe for lavender lemonade) there. We’re also happy to share the mixtape with you right here on TK. We packed it full of awesome music including Continue…

    It’s official. Yesterday SOUNDS DELICIOUS met its funding goal on Kickstarter! Thank you so much to everyone who has supported it so far. You. Are. Awesome. If you missed the announcement you might be wondering what SOUNDS DELICIOUS is.

  3. Single Serving: Sur Back – Trophy Daughter

    As you may have heard, we’ve had a lot on our plate this past week. Yesterday we announced our latest vinyl-only subscription service called SOUNDS DELICIOUS. If you want to skip the mandatory plug for the new service, you may want to skip down to the third paragraph of this post. SOUNDS DELICIOUS will feature some Continue…

  4. Introducing SOUNDS DELICIOUS

    Kasey and I are incredibly excited to introduce you to SOUNDS DELICIOUS, a first-of-its-kind monthly vinyl subscription service launching via Kickstarter today. This project is our grandest pursuit yet: we’ve asked some of indie music’s most well-respected artists to choose any full length album they love and cover it from front to back. We’ll be Continue…

  5. Single Serving: Whitney – No Matter Where We Go

    You guys. I am SO excited for this Whitney album. They’re one of those bands you could inadvertently watch perform the same set 5 times in 2 days and still not get sick of them (seriously, I would know). And the collection of singles they’ve dropped from their debut so far have been incredible. Take this latest Continue…

  6. Single Serving: Steve Gunn – Park Bench Smile

    Damn, Steve Gunn. This new single is absolutely incredible. It’s one of those tunes that unfurls. Slowly. Purposefully. And I don’t want to stop listening. Ever. Take a listen you guys. The album Eyes On The Lines is coming at you on June 3rd from Matador Records.

  7. Allrecipes Clambake Playlist

    We’re excited to partner with Allrecipes Magazine this month to soundtrack the playlist for their Summer Clambake. We wanted to put together a fun and eclectic playlist to compliment the ocean breeze and the freedom of a party at the beach. Something that would go well with fresh seafood, fruit and veggies. Below you’ll find that Continue…

  9. Single Serving: Topless – Letter To My Future

    Earlier today I mentioned how that new Yumi Zouma track was perfect for making stress dissipate. Well, sometimes its actually more fun to sorta revel in it. You know, instead of letting stress dissipate, to let it energize us. To blast some high energy punk jams and just bounce off the damn walls. Well, Topless are the perfect soundtrack Continue…

  10. Single Serving: Yumi Zouma – Short Truth

    Do you ever have one of those days that starts off with news that is just bad enough to just pretty much spoil your entire morning? Not like, “someone died” type bad news but worse than “I broke my iPhone” or “I spilled coffee on my shirt.” I’m having one of those mornings. Or, more Continue…

  11. TK056: Hot Flash Heat Wave – Hesitation EP

    My friend Peter knows a thing or two about good music. He’s the NightLife Program Specialist for California Academy of Sciences (i.e. he’s the guy who booked bands like Hundred Waters, TOPS, Best Coast, etc. in a science museum/aquarium). He’s one half of the brains behind MEGABLAAG (i.e. SXSW’s meeting of the music blog minds). Continue…
