1. Single Serving: Natalie Prass – My Baby Don’t Understand Me

    “My Baby Don’t Understand Me” is the opening track from Nashviille songwriter (and Jenny Lewis collaborator) Natalie Prass‘ debut record. And its arguably her most glorious and evocative track yet. Surrounded by billowing brass and soaring strings, she sings in a soft but pained croon, “Where do you go when the only home that you Continue…

    With billowing brass and soaring strings, the latest single "My Baby Don't Understand Me" from Nashville's Natalie Prass is her most glorious to date.

  2. Single Serving: Jamestown Revival – California (Cast Iron Soul)

    I knew nothing about Jamestown Revival when I saw them live back in November, but they showed the crowd at San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall Americana-style story telling at it’s finest. They mingled songs fitted for a back porch rocking chair along side jams rooted so deep with southern rock they had a room Continue…

  4. Single Serving: Shura – Touch

    If you missed Shura’s debut single in 2014, it’s time to have a listen. The British singer’s dreamy vocals take center stage in “Touch,” which has the aura of 80s rock with modern trappings. It’s a silky sweet ballad punctuated by piano and minimalist synth, and it’s a pleasure to listen to. Shura has yet Continue…

  5. Single Serving: Silk Cinema – Hope

    There is an awful lot to like on this debut single from Birmingham, UK-based songwriter Silk Cinema. Namely, “Hope” is a sparkling and dreamy pop groove with a bright, bubbly beat and a gorgeous, floating-in-space ambiance. But it’s really that smoky, soulful croon that mesmerized me. I’m officially obsessed.

  6. Single Serving: Maya Payne – If Only

    This jam is BIG. It’s called “If Only” and it’s the latest offering from 17 year-old New Zealand songwriter Maya Payne. Pillowed by rumbling low end and textured by laser-like synths, it’s a grand electro-pop tune that’d sound as at home in the club as it would on stage at a festival. It’s safe to Continue…

  7. Single Serving: Nick Klein – Paralyzed

    This is it. “Paralyzed” is the latest single from Dutch duo Nick Klein (Nick Klein + Ferdous Dehzad) and it has my full attention this morning. Filled with swirling, rainbow-colored tones and shuffling rhythms, it’s an addicting electro pop groove that’ll help the duo expand their audience pretty quick. Hear it for yourself.

  8. Single Serving: Harry Edwards – Almost Everybody

    Norwich, England-based Harry Edwards is certainly owning that James Blake-vibe. His first single “Almost Everybody” oozes with deep rumbling bass, chirpy ambiance, and a smooth falsetto as he sings “I want to please you.” Where he really stands out though is with his freeform, asymmetrical compositions that circle through mutation after mutation upon recurring beats and sonic motifs Continue…

  9. Single Serving: Kali Uchis – Know What I Want

    The creative, Colombian born Kali Uchis is going to blow up big in 2015. At 21 years of age, she already writes her own jams, directs her own videos and rocks a self assured Gwen-like, baby-doll fashion style of her own creation. However, aside from age, talent and appearance, she’s also targeting all the right Continue…

  10. Single Serving: Waxahatchee – Air

    With her first two albums, singer-songwriter Katie Crutchfield showcased an uncanny ability for writing honest, confessional indie rock. Under the moniker Waxahatchee, Crutchfield released American Weekend and Cerulean Salt in 2012 and 2013 respectively – and there is a definite urgency in both the production and lyrics on each release. Two years later and “Air,” Continue…

  11. Single Serving: Alex Burey – The Intimidator

    Following the previous title-track, London producer and singer songwriter Alex Burey have unveiled “The Intimidator,” the lead single taken from his forthcoming debut 4-track EP titled Inside World out on February 9th. A slow-burning and subtle soft-pop piece of work. Take a listen below.
