Musical Pairings: Beck – Morning Phase

March 12th, 2014 Beck - Morning Phase

Typically I view waffles as the culinary equivalent of gooey, upbeat pop music: they’re a guilty pleasure. Drizzled with maple syrup (or, in my case, drenched in a vast waterfall of maple syrup) they are nearly impossible to resist. They’re a fun, nostalgia-inducing breakfast with little-to-no nutritive value. Kasey’s recipe for Savory Rye Waffles is […]

Single Serving: Jungle – Busy Earnin’

March 11th, 2014 Jungle-Busy-Earnin

Jungle are definitely one of groups I’m most excited to catch at SXSW this year. They’ll be dropping a full length later this year on XL Recordings. In the meantime, I’m obsessed with the funky, synth-soaked jam “Busy Earnin’” from their latest 12″. You can pre-order the 12″ here.

Turntable Kitchen’s Guide to SXSW

March 10th, 2014 Downloads48

Whether you have a wristband, badge, or just plan to show up in Austin and hope for the best, you’ll have a better experience at SXSW Music if you have a game plan. That doesn’t mean trying to schedule out exactly where you’ll be and when. That would be a mistake. After all, if you […]

Single Serving: Marian Hill – One Time

March 7th, 2014 Marian Hill - One Time

With influences ranging “from Ella Fitzgerald to Drake” Philly-based duo Marian Hill (producer Jeremy Lloyd and vocalist Samantha Gongol) are seriously sexy. For example, take a listen to this opening track from their new Play EP. A sparse, jazzy groove sets the stage for Gongol’s come-hither croon as she coos, “Boy, if you want to go, I would not […]

Single Serving: BASECAMP – All That She Wants (Ace of Base Cover)

March 6th, 2014 BASECAMP - All That She Wants

So Nashville-based r&b trio BASECAMP just released their slinky cover of Ace of Base’s “All That She Wants” and it’s pretty incredible. Stripped down to a shuffling ambiance, booming rhythm, and a smooth croon, their take is both seductive and mesmerizing. For now, I’ll leave it at that and let you listen for yourself. Somebody […]

Musical Pairings: Real Estate – Atlas

March 5th, 2014 Real Estate - Atlas

OK. Let’s start with a disclaimer. It’s cool if you’re not into Real Estate. After all, I know people with good taste who don’t like Radiohead or Elliot Smith. And you know what? To each their own. I’m not going to judge. But, with that said, if you don’t like Real Estate specifically because you […]

TK030: IYES – ‘Til Infinity b/w Crazy In Love (Beyoncé Cover)


Once upon a time. How many great stories do you think have begun with that phrase over the centuries? Probably countless. The phrase (or some variation of it) exists in over 75 languages and has been in use since at least 1380. It’s particularly common when telling fairytales, myths or fables. So it’s appropriate that […]

Single Serving: Hundred Waters – Down From The Rafters

March 3rd, 2014 Hundred Waters

Without a doubt, one of the hardest things for any artist to achieve is to sound original. I don’t mean original in the “no one’s ever done this before” sense, but more in the sense that they’re both able to sound comfortable in their own skin and simultaneously sound like a unique amalgamation of their […]

Single Serving: Oceaán – Turned Away

February 28th, 2014 Oceaan

Blending electronica, r&b, and pop, the beautifully layered vibes from Manchester-based Oceaán are hypnotizing. His debut single “To Lose” was promising enough to score him a spot on our Top 15 New Bands You Need To Hear Now list. With a snappy, textured rhythm and lovely, understated vocals, his latest single “Turned Away” delivers on the […]

Single Serving: Intimachine – Do Me

February 27th, 2014 Initmachine - Do Me

A low rumble rolls out like damp, heavy fog across the opening minutes of Intimachine‘s latest dream pop jam “Do Me.” It sets a dark and foreboding ambiance for the tune as multi-instrumentalist Christopher Wormald’s sparse guitar licks flicker eerily in the distance to accompany vocalist Chelsey Rae Holland’s croon. It’s a lovingly cinematic jam […]
