  1. Single Serving: Kotomi – Swimming

    We’re under the influence of a heady dose of wanderlust this week. As a result, this warm, rumbling and absolutely bewitching new single from Kotomi (a.k.a. producer/songwriter Lauren Hillman) is completley on point. It’s exotic, balmy and could perfectly soundtrack an hour wandering a coastal town in a far away place. Go ahead, take a Continue…

    Listen to a bewitching new single from Kotomi.


  2. Mikal Cronin – MCIII

    Aside from the color of the vinyl, the center labels were the first things I noticed when I opened my copy of Mikal Cronin‘s latest album MCIII. Side A features a simple black label with subtle gradient variations marked by concentric circles. Side B is the mirror image but in white. The vinyl itself is Continue…

  3. Single Serving: Oh Wonder – Livewire

    It’s the first of the month, so London duo Oh Wonder have returned with their latest single “Livewire.” As you may recall, back in September of last year they’d promised to release a single on the first of every month for a full year leading up to the eventual release of their debut album. Not Continue…

  4. Single Serving: Bells Atlas – Bling

    We’ve been longtime fans of whatever sonic stew the good folks in Oakland’s Bells Atlas are cooking up and their latest single “Bling” is a perfect example of the toothsomeness that keeps us craving more. Mystic, kaleidoscopic and exceptionally poetic, it’s both crisp and mesmerizing. Take a taste and see for yourself.

  5. Single Serving: No Vacation – Beach Bummer

    Looking for songs to add to your summer 2015 playlist? Look no further than the dreamy-pop of San Francisco duo No Vacation. One of many standout tracks from their debut record Amo XO, the playful rhythm of “Beach Bummer” is infectious. The track also masterfully balances the carefree feelings of summer and, thanks to some gloomy lyrics, the sadness Continue…

  6. Single Serving: Actor – Feline

    Originally from Southampton, Actor is the moniker of Louisa Osborn. Listen to her very first release, the glossy-pop “Feline” in collaboration with producer Chris Mulligan and drummer Ste Anderson. Actor explains that the track “is about feeling filled with rage and disappointment yet tinged with a strange sort of dark wonder.” It’s a really impressive Continue…

  7. Hayden – Hey Love

    Hayden‘s Hey Love is not what you’d call an upbeat album. In fact, if we’re being honest, it’s often kind of a bummer. For example, the album opens with songwriter Hayden Desser pretty much calling out love itself as the problem. As you might have guessed, opener “Hearts Just Beat” is a languid tune with Continue…

  8. Single Serving: Torres – Cowboy Guilt

    With its reverberating and screeching fringe, Torres latest single “Cowboy Guilt” is a surprisingly playful and sonically-wobbly tune that sounds as if it’s ready to come unspooled at any moment. And, if we’re being honest, it’s left us more excited than ever for her forthcoming album Sprinter. Definitely recommended for fans of artful indie pop Continue…

  9. Single Serving: mewithoutYou – Red Cow

    Is it art rock, post-hardcore, indie rock or maybe punk rock? Philly eccentrics mewithoutYou have always been difficult to pin down and they seem to prefer it that way. The band is set to release their sixth LP in June and “Red Cow” continues to showcase their knack for uniquely structured, lyrically dense songwriting. And while the Continue…

  10. Single Serving: Alice Ivy – Mean Man’s Bite

    Beat the heat this summer with Melbourne’s Alice Ivy and her newest single “Mean Man’s Bite.” Like an ice cold mojito, it has all of the ingredients to keep any poolside dance party going through the sweltering heat. I also really dig the song’s artwork compliments of mala|parte|cafe.

  11. Single Serving: Lyves X Synkro – Body Close

    Shuffling and richly atmospheric, London alt-soul vocalist Lyves and Manchester-based producer Synkro have crafted something special with their inspired collaboration “Body Close.” It’ll appear on Synkro’s debut album and Lyves forthcoming EP. Take a listen below.
