  1. Single Serving: Daniel Wilson – If You Went Away

    Daniel Wilson has been on a roll this month. In addition to the release of his first ever vinyl single (through the Pairings Box no less), he’s released a pair of incredible new singles. The latest track “If You Went Away” is a springy, ivory-framed ballad that gently floats forward through a swelling, understated composition. It’s Continue…

    The evocative and understated "If You Went Away" is further proof that Daniel Wilson may be one of indie's most promising new talents.

    EndofAnEar

    Today’s interview is with Dan Plunkett, co-owner of End of An Ear. If you’ve ever found yourself in the midst of the legendary South By Southwest that takes place every year in Austin, Texas then you’ve probably stumbled into End Of An Ear. End of An Ear is an (almost) decade old record shop that Continue…

  3. Single Serving: Adna – Living

    Swedish singer-songwriter Adna may have released her debut record, Night, this past spring, but she’s already churning out material for a second: last week, she dropped “Living,” a sweeping song that’ll be on Run, Lucifer, an album she plans on delivering in the New Year. “Living,” with its reserved verses and colossal choruses, finds Adna Continue…

  4. Single Serving: Tobias Jesso Jr. – Hollywood

    In 2012, Tobias Jesso Jr. was eaten alive by Los Angeles. He’d moved there with dreams of becoming a successful songwriter, only to be chewed up like so many hopefuls heading to our nation’s entertainment capitols. He returned home to Vancouver, reflected and learned to play piano. Two years and a couple of breathtaking demos Continue…

  6. Single Serving: LANKS – Beach Houses

    If you’re looking to get centered this afternoon, then this track from Melbourne vocalist/producer LANKS (a.k.a. Will Cuming) is all you’ll need. With a flowing, fluttering groove his latest single “Beach Houses” provides all the chill, laid-back vibes you could need. Take a listen below and see for yourself. He’s prepped for a spot at Australia’s Paradise Continue…

  7. Single Serving: CVIRO & GXNXVS – Benjamins

    Australian vocalist CVIRO (pronounced “Cairo”) partners with producer GXNXVS (pronounced “Genius”) for this smooth and understated jam. Throughout, they take subtle cues from 90′s r&b and 80′s beat work while thoughtfully pairing those influences with contemporary production. The result is totally slick. It’s the title track form CVIRO’s forthcoming five-track EP that should drop soon.

  8. Single Serving: Paperwhite – Magic EP (Full EP Stream)

    Without a doubt, Paperwhite have proven to be one of the most consistently rewarding new pop music projects we’ve heard this year. The New York-based duo (a.k.a. brother and sister Ben and Katie Marshall) have been near unstoppable as they’ve slowly teased out irresistible, sugary sweet (but never saccharine) pop confections one after another. Today you can finally Continue…

  9. Single Serving: Speelburg – Kline

    Speelburg (a.k.a. Noah Sacré) returns with the fittingly cinematic yet unexpectedly rootsy new single “Kline.” It’s a smokey slice of pop noir initiated with little more than a fleeting swell of strings and a shuffling, off-kilter rhythm to accompany Sacré’s croon as he sings, “Dead and gone. Not too long. I’ll be right behind you, if I keep Continue…

  10. Single Serving: MY BODY – All I Can

    In the words of Elvis Costello, “Welcome to the working week. I know it don’t thrill you, and I hope it don’t kill you.” Personally, I’m off to a slow start, but this clattering and exotic groove from Brooklyn’s MY BODY is helping me kick things off. Take a listen below.

  11. Single Serving: RÉN – Time

    We’ve been listening to this debut single from Brooklyn up-and-comer RÉN (a.k.a. Renée Orshan) on repeat since it showed up in our inbox this morning. After all, “Time” has a slick, smooth groove to it thanks to the rubbery bass riff and tight, bouncing beat that accompanies Orshan as she sings bright-eyed and optimistically about taking chances on Continue…
