  1. Single Serving: Ejecta – Silver

    Yesterday afternoon Ejecta (the project of Neon Indian’s Leanne Macomber & Ford & Lopatin’s Joel Ford) released an entrancingly lovely new video for their single “Silver.” Directed by Emir Eralp, the video is a wash of bright, warm colors to accompany the song’s swirl of sparkling synths and Macomber’s slinky croon. It’s a good fit for a track that Continue…

    Watch a warm and brightly colored video for EJecta's sleek and sezy single "Silver."

  2. Single Serving: SW/MM/NG – “All I Want”

    Fold up your beach towels, put your trunks in a box and return your neighbor’s missing grill: summer is over. But don’t fret! Fayetteville, AR scenesters SW/MM/NG are just as bummed as you are, and they’ve penned a necessary gut-punch to get us back into our fall routines. “All I Want,” a standout track from Continue…

  3. TK036: Oxford Drama – Asleep/Awake b/w Venter Remix

    It’s easy to take for granted, but occasionally it is worth reflecting upon what a truly remarkable experience it is to discover beautiful music crafted halfway around the world that somehow improbably made its way to our ears. For example, Wrocław, Poland duo Oxford Drama (a.k.a. Małgorzata Dryjańska and Marcin Mrówka) have been recording together Continue…

  4. Single Serving: J. Fernandez – Cosmic Was

    Chicago’s multi-instrumentalist wunderkind J. Fernandez will yield us Memorize Now, his third EP and first for Atelier Ciseaux early next month.  On lead off track “Cosmic Was,” Fernandez’s pop sensibilities gleam via a jaunty bass line and steady backbeat, horn-stabs adding to an overall spirited mood. However it’s his dark croon and discordant organ tones that provide a compelling symmetry to Continue…

  5. Single Serving: Linus Young – Crystal Ball

    LA-based boy-girl duo Iris and Joseph are Linus Young and their modern brand of indie rock has been turning heads for awhile now. Here, their massive latest offering is titled “Crystal Ball” and it’s pulled from their forthcoming, much-anticipated debut Category 5 which is set for a release through Island Records on September 23. Take a listen below.

  6. Single Serving: Billie Black – I Don’t Need Another Lover

    London singer, songwriter Billie Black has one of the most incredible voices I’ve heard in a hot minute. It’s simmering, sultry and a little mysterious. On her latest official single “I Don’t Need A Lover” it’s paired with a heavy, floor thumbing rhythm and sparkling, laser-bright synths. Featuring production by Imposters, it’s an incredibly auspicious single that flags Black Continue…

  7. Single Serving: Meg Mac – Grandma’s Hands (Bill Withers Cover)

    I think Bill Withers discography is particularly ripe for artists who want to reinvent a classic. After all, Withers is arguably one of the greatest songwriters of all time but the production on many of his greatest are hopelessly passé (give “Just The Two Of Us” a listen if you don’t believe me). Meanwhile, although Continue…

  8. Single Serving: Aphex Twin – minipops 67 [120.2][source field mix]

    My mind was blown the first time I really listened to an Aphex Twin album. And, of course, that is the intended reaction to an Aphex Twin album. After all, as any fan can tell you, there is little in James’ catalog that you could describe as “subtle.” Instead, most of his output can be described as Continue…

  9. Single Serving: Operators – True

    This one dropped a few weeks ago and has been getting a lot of play in my headphones. Dan Boeckner (Wolf Parade / Divine Fits / Handsome Furs) has partnered up with a new band called Operators for a brand new EP and tour with Future Islands. The driving synth-forward jam “True” is the album’s Continue…

  10. Single Serving: Freddie Dickson – News

    Dramatic is an understatement when it comes to London-based artist Freddie Dickson. He’s been compared repeatedly to Lana Del Rey (which, honestly, is pretty spot on) for the dark, hazy pop he showcased on his debut EP Shut Us Down. A year passed without a peep from Dickson until Tuesday, when the singer-songwriter premiered a Continue…

  11. Single Serving: The Night VI – Drops (Jungle Cover)

    We’ve been thoroughly enjoying the early output from London newcombers The Night VI. Between their debut tracks and a beautiful cover of Frank Ocean’s “Thinkin Bout You,” they’ve demonstrated both a subtle hand and elegant demeanor. Their latest release, a gently simmering rework of Jungle’s “Drops,” keeps the course. It’s both lovely and understated. But don’t Continue…
