  1. Wye Oak – Shriek

    “This morning I woke up on the floor / thinking I had never dreamed before,” sings Wye Oak vocalist Jenn Wasner on “Before,” the opening track to the Baltimore-based duo’s newest release Shriek. The lyrics are an indication of just how uncertain and lost Wasner was feeling when she set to the work of writing material for Continue…

    Rhythmic and driving, 'Shriek' may be Baltimore-duo Wye Oak's best album to date.

  2. Single Serving: Spoon – Do You

    If you’re as excited as we are for the Spoon album, then you’ll be delighted to hear the album’s upbeat second single, “Do You.” It’s built from brightly strummed guitar riffs, swaying percussion, and a light piano melody to accompany vocalist Britt Daniel. Our favorite lines? “Someone get popsicles. Someone do something about this heat.” We gotcha covered Britt. You can Continue…

  3. Single Serving: Anand Wilder & Maxwell Kardon – Wedding Day

    Here’s a tune to get you feeling happy. It’s a loose and ramshackle folk rocker titled “Wedding Day” from Yeasayer guitarist Anand Wilder and composer Maxwell Kardon – and it’s every been as bright and upbeat as its title suggests. It’s part of an upcoming album the duo have scheduled for a July 15th release. According to the Continue…

  4. Single Serving: Woods – Tomorrow’s Only Yesterday

    As we previously reported, the good folks in Woods are releasing a 7″ companion piece to go with their excellent new With Love and With Light LP. It drops next week (it’s officially released on July 8th).  They previously released the a-side “Tambourine Light” (which you can hear here) and now you can hear the b-side “Tomorrow’s Only Yesterday” as Continue…

  5. Single Serving: FKA Twigs – Two Weeks

    Here’s one for the weekend. The highly talented and enigmatic FKA twigs recently dropped the first single and video for the track “Two Weeks” from her debut LP (appropriately titled LP1). You can watch the video below. It’s highly recommended listening. The not-entirely-safe-for-work r&b jam is dangerously sexy and incredibly addictive. It’s built from sputtering percussion, waves Continue…

  6. Single Serving: TOPS – Sleeptalker

    Montreal quartet TOPS keep us smiling and toe-tapping with their lackadaisical new jam “Sleeptalker.” Light and hazy like a puff of smoke, it’s a sparse vibe with shimmery guitar and light and jazzy percussion. This is what singer Jane Penny had to say about the tune: “Sleeptalker is a deeply personal song for me. I wrote Continue…

  7. Single Serving: Zella Day – East of Eden

    We’ve been closely following the ascent of Arizona’s Zella Day for the past few months, so we’re excited to discover that she’s announced her debut EP. The self-titled short player will be released via the good folks over at B3SCI (the same folks who brought us Jungle and Zella’s debut single). She’s also just released the EP’s first Continue…

    Welcome to the bright and sunny download page for TK033. This month’s Pairings Box was inspired by our recent travels to Tulum, Mexico. So, it’s only fitting that our first course on the download page is a pair of searingly psychedelic rockers from San Francisco’s A Million Billion Dying Suns. On the mixtape, we’re dishing Continue…

  9. Single Serving: Grimes – Go (feat. Blood Diamonds)

    Montreal-based songstress Grimes (aka Claire Boucher) recently wrote a song called “Go” for Rihanna. The pop star turned down the tune but Grimes wasn’t deterred. She decided to record the song herself – with the help of her friend Blood Diamonds. Grimes described the track as a “summer jam” and, whoa, is that ever on point. The track features strong Continue…

  10. Single Serving: Sinkane – Hold Tight

    New York-based producer Ahmed Gallab, aka Sinkane, has announced his latest LP Mean Love. It’s set for a September 2nd release via DFA Records. He’s also released the album’s first single “Hold Tight.” It’s a blend of funky bass and humming soul synth that accompanies Gallab as he explores new sonic territory that – although Continue…

  11. Single Serving: Blonde Redhead – No More Honey

    Blonde Redhead have announced the follow up to 2010′s excellent Penny Sparkle. Titled Barragán, the new record will be released on September 2 via Kobalt. They’ve also shared the album’s first single “No More Honey” to accompany the news. As we’ve come to expect from the trio, the new single offers a subtle but atmospheric vibe. It’s cavernous with Continue…
