  1. Single Serving: Woods – Morning Light

    Hoo-boy. I don’t know about you but I love me some Woods something fierce. Yup, it’s a good week when we get new jams from the Jeremy Earl and the Woodsist crew. Like this here new vibe “Morning Light.” And, man oh man, does this track ever live up to its name. It’s chill. It’s Continue…

    Take a listen to the aptly named latest vibe "Morning Light" from Woods.


  2. Single Serving: Car Seat Headrest – Drunk Drivers/Killer Whales

    Apparently some data wizard took a bunch of numbers and determined that the perfect pop song is exactly two minutes and forty two seconds long. They’re obviously right because math. Historically speaking, that perfect pop song has harmonic simplicity and is danceable as well. That much should have been obvious. Using that information as a basis for scientifically examining Continue…

No more wandering up and down Red River and 6th. No more cheap food. No more Continue…

  4. Single Serving: Whitney – Golden Days

    It feels like it was just a day or two ago that I was waxing on and on upon how awesome this new band Whitney is. Oh, wait, that’s because it was just a couple of days ago! Maybe it’s time I start to lay off the Pliny. Anyhow, they just dropped another single this morning. Continue…

  5. Single Serving: The Bones of J.R. Jones – Hammers And Nails

    I like music with squawking, noisy, reverb-drenched guitars. I like music with synths and neon-bright tones twinkling in the ambiance. I’m known to mess with a little r&b or hip hop from time to time. But, typically, if I’m going to drop a blues/folk album on the turntable it’s a dusty old artifact (Lightnin’ Hopkins, Continue…

  6. Single Serving: Whitney – No Woman

    There’s always an artist (or three) that carry all the buzz into SXSW with them. It’s the band that is everywhere, on every cool lineup. This year Whitney was that band. They were literally ubiquitous. Okay, not “literally” literally, but you get the idea. AdHoc showcase? They kicked it off. Hype Hotel? Played it later that Continue…

  7. Single Serving: Anderson .Paak – Come Down

    Last week was the music industry conference/festival called SXSW (also referred to as “South By” by horrible, horrible people). It’s that beloved time of year when the entire music industry (bloggers, critics, publicists, managers, label execs, etc) comes together to test the physical and emotional endurance of music publicists and young bands. Great album kid! Can you play it eight times a day Continue…

  8. Single Serving: Rivvrs – Surrender

    Brandon Zahursky, better known as Rivvrs, is a singer songwriter out of San Francisco, CA and his recently released single “Surrender” has been on repeat for me since the day I heard it. Just moments into the track it is easy to appreciate the relevance of the title as your ears cease the resistance and Continue…
