  1. Single Serving: Oyinda – Restless

    London-raised Nigerian Oyinda has been rising fast over the course of the past few months based on the strength of her initial singles and her first ever live performance at this Summer’s Lollapalooza. Indeed, her latest offering “Restless” is the first and final track from her debut EP Before The Fall. It showcases all of the Continue…

  2. Single Serving: Deers – Castigadas en el Granero

    As the Internet has expanded and intensified, so has the internet-goer’s need for instant gratification. For the Madrid-based band Deers, however, that luxury-turned-necessity is purely a gift: last year, the then-duo formed, quickly posted a couple tracks to SoundCloud and received a steady stream of praise. Instantly. Deers—who has since grown to a four-piece—recently recorded Continue…

  3. Single Serving: Monogem – Wait and See

    Monogem is a boy girl collaboration comprised of Jen Hirsh and Scott Smith, who introduced themselves to the world earlier this year with an impressive debut called “Wait and See.” The song is about dreams, and every time I hear it, my mind can’t help but travel to the future. Smith’s synths beat like a robot feeling Continue…

  4. Single Serving: Daye Jack – Hello World

    Daye Jack is a rapper brand new to the hip hop scene this year, with one mixtape and a mounting pile of accolades to his name. He’s also an 18-year-old computer science student at NYU, born in Nigeria and raised in Atlanta. If that sounds like an unlikely formula for a future alt-rap heavy hitter, Continue…

  5. Single Serving: DEATHS – Sold

    After wowing us a couple of months back with their enchanting debut single, Berlin-based collective DEATHS return today with their second-ever release. Like their previous offering, this one is gorgeous, atmospheric and darkly-lit. Indeed, the moody “Sold” is cold as ice. With a skeletal beat, haunting vocals, and starkly ringing guitar riffs, it’s both visceral and mesmerizing. It’s released by Continue…

  6. Kindness – Otherness

    Genres are an infuriatingly inadequate means of describing a song. Pop in particular is an incredibly amorphous genre. For example, Chubby Checker’s “The Twist” was a pop hit in 1960. Compare that one to Radiohead’s 2000 opus Kid A – also described as pop music (including by frontman Thom Yorke) – and you’ll struggle to find much in the Continue…

  7. Single Serving: Nick Hill – Know This

    Sydney-based newcomer Nick Hill unveils his first release “Know This” taken from his forthcoming debut EP titled Rut out on November 26th through Yes Please Records. Pay attention to the slinky light percussion. Pretty amazing effort, looking forward to hear more: “I trust my eyes don’t lie”.

  8. Single Serving: Doprah – Stranger People

    New Zealand seems to have a never-ending supply of talent these days, the latest of which is the weird and wonderful duo Doprah. Their eponymous EP dropped this summer, and it’s finally (thankfully) made its way across the oceans and into our ears. The first track off of the EP, “Stranger People,” lives up to Continue…

  9. Single Serving: Bat Manors – Manifest Destiny

    If you attended your middle school social studies classes, you’re familiar with the arrogant concept of manifest destiny: Americans are destined by God to occupy the continent from sea to shining sea. It was really, really big in the 19th century. Bat Manors, a six-piece group from Utah, drew the name and inspiration of their Continue…

  10. TK038: Daniel Wilson Killed Ya b/w Please Dream Again

    Good music sometimes defies description – but that doesn’t necessarily mean we can’t compare it to anything else. In fact, sometimes the problem is that a song calls to mind too many things at once – making it hard to cleanly categorize it. The initial output of Ypsilanti, Michigan songwriter Daniel Wilson is like that. Continue…

  11. Single Serving: BØRNS – 10,000 Emerald Pools

    My friend from across the pond sent me this today and I pretty much immediately spread my wings and took flight. After all, “10,000 Emerald Pools” is a dreamy, cloud busting, buoyant melody that has the power to make a wilting flower stand straight up, open its petals and hug the sun. After just one Continue…
