Single Serving: St. Vincent – Digital Witness (DARKSIDE Remix)

March 30th, 2014 Digital-Witness-Darkside-Remix-608x608

This is too much. Seriously. Too. Much. Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington’s DARKSIDE just dropped a flaming hot remix of St. Vincent’s “Digital Witness.” Ms. Annie Clark’s vocals are scuffed and distorted nearly beyond all recognition, yet that funky rhythm is still there strutting around in a clipped, drunken groove. Let’s just say I’m kinda […]

Musical Pairings: The War on Drugs – Lost In The Dream

March 27th, 2014 The War on Drugs - Lost in a Dream

The War On Drugs, the Philadelphia-led project of Adam Granduciel, are one of those bands that seem to get better with each successive album. Their latest album, Lost In The Dream, is more focused, more direct, and more sure-footed than it’s predecessors. Indeed, Lost In The Dream is Granduciel’s finest work yet. Like the band’s […]

Single Serving: Talos – Tethered Bones

March 26th, 2014 Talos - Tethered Bones

Talos is the project of Cork, Ireland native Eoin French. This is his debut track. The swooning, tightly-wound groove is all vibe and honey-sweet vocals. Both exotic and chill, it makes me want to close my eyes and imagine riding on a train in a foreign country early on a foggy, rainy morning, watching as […]

Single Serving: IYES – Breathe

March 25th, 2014 IYES - Breathe

With all due respect to all the other artists dropping new singles this week, IYES already won the game. Their new single “Breathe” is simply an incredible, sexy and atmospheric jam. Multi-instrumentalist/producer Josh Christopher blankets the groove with an enveloping, cool vibe like a layer of heavy fog to accompany vocalist Melis Soyaslanova as she […]

Single Serving: Yalls – Warlord

March 25th, 2014 Yalls - United

Berkeley-based Yalls, a.k.a. Dan Casey, has become a well-respected fixture in the Bay Area music scene over the past few years. Whether it’s his synth-soaked remixes or his hip hop-tinged jams, his work is always awesome. He also DJ’ed the Ears of the Beholder + yvynyl party at the Hype Hotel at SXSW this year […]

Single Serving: Zella Day – 1965

March 24th, 2014 Zella Day - Sweet Ophelia - 1965

The label “singer/songwriter” makes me shutter. The label conjures memories of the hordes of uninspired guitar-slingers that make most open mic nights such a drag. But, of course, there are many singer/songwriters that are actually incredibly talented and that rise above the rest. Los Angeles’ based Zella Day is a great example of that. Just […]

Turntable Kitchen’s SXSW 2014 Photo Diary

March 20th, 2014 IMG_4680-002

Despite the increasing visibility of mega pop stars such as Coldplay, Lady Gaga, Lil Wayne, Jay Z and Kanye West, SXSW still offers a great opportunity to catch rising bands on their way up – long before they’re able to embark on full world tours. With a few exceptions, that’s how we like to approach […]

Musical Pairings: MØ – No Mythologies To Follow

March 19th, 2014 MØ No Mythologies To Follow

It’s been a little over two years since Copenhagen-based dark-pop chanteuse MØ unleashed her first singles (which were collected on a TK-released debut 7″). On a surface level, the fact that it’s taken two years to release her debut is worrisome. After all, in today’s musical industry two years can be a lifetime for many artists. For […]

Single Serving: Hundred Waters – Cavity

March 18th, 2014 Hundred Waters - Cavity

I really liked Gainesville, Florida’s Hundred Waters before SXSW, but after seeing them at the Portals showcase I’m completely in love. Their compositions are texturally sophisticated; vocalist Nicole Miglis’ voice is incredibly evocative; they’re sonic signature is lovingly exotic; and they are some of the nicest people you could hope to meet. Need another reason to […]
