  1. Single Serving: Porches – Hour

    “In my loner hour, I turn to my twin bed for hours,” sings Aaron Maine (Porches) in “Hour,” the first song from his forthcoming album Pool. This dark opening line perfectly pulls you into Maine’s textured and moody world of synth-pop. Between the pulsing electronics and sweet backing vocals from Greta Kline (Frankie Cosmos), “Hour” is a delicious song to accompany your misery.


  2. Single Serving: La Mar – Still Wild

    Sydney-based duo La Mar share the slow burning title track of their forthcoming debut Still Wild EP. A delightful soft dancehall-inflected piece of work. La Mar create the chilliest atmosphere with warm loud beats dipped into soulful R&B vibes and haunting vocals. Take a listen to “Still Wild” below.

  3. Single Serving: Quilt – Eliot St.

    Quilt‘s first couple of albums have been in heavy rotation in our home ever since their respective releases. Indeed,what I love about the band is that their music isn’t just exceptionally thoughtful and beautifully loose – they have staying power. I get over records pretty fast, but I never seem to grow tired of listening Continue…

  4. Single Serving: Foreign Air – Free Animal

    With its slinky bass line and a zany groove propelled by frequently shifting samples, united alongside of Jesse Clasen’s silky vocals who are often found stretching a single octave to it’s limits like it’s a piece of taffy; it’s hard not to compare new comers on the scene, Foreign Air, with the likes of Alt-J Continue…

  5. Single Serving: Poliça – Lime Habit

    Some music is best listened to in the color of night, where the presence of darkness seems to amplify the the way the music is perceived. Poliça is one of those bands for me, the combination of Channy’s vocals and Ryan’s production have a looming darkness about them that seems to really awaken when the Continue…

  8. Single Serving: Lantern’s on the Lake – Through the Cellar Door

    With Hazel Wilde’s delicate voice, a soft cross-stick drum beat and whimsical guitar plucking, Lanterns on the Lake‘s latest single “Through the Cellar Door” starts out very warm and inviting. However just as you feel at peace within this serene world they’ve created for you, the floor falls out beneath your feet and you are Continue…

  9. Single Serving: Kyle Morton & Matthew Thomas Ross – Book Of Matches

    If you’re familiar with Portland, Oregon band Typhoon then you’re probably familiar with the story of frontman Kyle Morton. His writing focuses heavily on themes of death – and understandably so – after having been diagnosed with a severe case of Lyme disease at a very young age. His new project, Book Of Matches – a Continue…

  10. Single Serving: Epsilona – Going Home

    Sacramento indie rock group Epsilona recently released another single “Going Home” from their coming debut EP, Thinkers, due out on the 28th of this month. Artfully layered underneath spiraling guitar chords and crisp, splashing drums, “Going Home” appears to make light of an unripened relationship quickly becoming tangled mess of lies. Clocking in at five Continue…

  11. Single Serving: MK Grands – Rxssia

    Producer, writer and singer MK Grands provides more R&B and groove movements than he did with his last tracks. With “Rxssia” MK Grands explores another side of his skills, it’s a bit more upbeat. The Sidney-based artist draws a soft-dark and impressive atmospheric production with intense vocals about “the appreciation of human connection and its Continue…
