  1. Single Serving: TENDER – Volatile

    North London duo TENDER have officially released their sophomore EP this week (the aptly titled EPII) along with its final single “Volatile.” This one is a flashy, darkly-lit r&b jam that offers yet one more reason to be excited about what these boys are up to. You can grab it digitally from iTunes.


  2. Single Serving: Vök – Waiting

    Icelandic favorites Vök are back with another incredible single titled “Waiting.” While listening I can’t help but romanticize the thought of wandering a cold, icy terrain; pulsing synths, beautiful echoing vocals and an ambient cavernous backdrop of sounds channel a mystical element about their music. I’m always excited for a release from them, they have Continue…

  3. Single Serving: Foreign Air – In The Shadows

    Despite having only a pair of officially released tracks under their belt (including this just released new single), newcomers Foreign Air are off to an auspicious start. Their debut single “Free Animal” was covered by many of the top music blogs and, not coincidentally, it managed to pick up nearly 200k plays on Soundcloud in a few short Continue…

  5. TK053: SWIMM – SWIMM EP

    California-by-way-of-Florida duo SWIMM (i.e. Chris Hess and Adam Winn) are one of those rare bands with both vision and chemistry. They’ve described their professional relationship with one another by explaining that they “basically feel like extensions of one another.” Together, they find inspiration from a shared commitment towards eschewing apathy in their songwriting while simultaneously Continue…

  6. Single Serving: TENDER – Cut

    North London duo TENDER (a.k.a. Dan & James) have been absolutely on fire recently. In under six months, the first two singles (“Armour” and “Belong”) from their debut EP received nearly half a million plays on Soundcloud alone. Meanwhile, All Things Go called them their “favorite act of 2016” and they’ve received enthusiastic praise from Continue…

  7. Single Serving: Los Angeles Police Dept – Hard

    We’ve been following the music of Los Angeles Police Dept (a.k.a. Ryan Pollie) for a hot minute now (ever since first hearing his dreamy, psych pop tune “She Came Through (Again)” a few years back). He’s been building his credentials since that time with premieres on FADER and VICE and a 7″ for Fat Possum Continue…

  8. Single Serving: Salt Cathedral – No Ordinary Man

    It’s no exaggeration to say that Salt Cathedral are one of our all time favorite bands. Much like the kindred spirits in Hundred Waters, the hardworking and exceptionally creative Brooklyn-by-way-of-Bogota duo craft the sort of thoughtfully pensive tracks that are as intricately crafted as they are fun to listen to. Their latest track is one of Continue…

  9. Single Serving: Cathedrals – Howling

    It’s been a little while since our friends in San Francisco-based Cathedrals have released new material. Thankfully, we have it on good authority that they’ve been hard at work on a collection of new original tracks. Although there is no word yet on an official album/EP release, today we do get to taste a little of the Continue…

  10. Artist Mixtape Curated By Kotomi

    We asked December’s featured artist Kotomi,  a.k.a. Los Angeles-based Lauren Hillman, to compile a mixtape of music she loves. We’re delighted by her choices which range from former Pairings Box alumni like Tei Shi to Radiohead. Here’s the tracklist: 1. Neon Indian – Slumlord 2. Rival Consoles – Ghosting 3. Tei Shi – Bassically 4. MADEIRA – Let Me Down 5. Baths Continue…

  11. Single Serving: Beverly – Victoria (ft. Kip Berman)

    This latest single from Brooklyn-duo Beverly is absolutely irresistible. Seriously, I cannot stop listening to it. With its warm Pinkerton-esque guitar riffs and lovelorn lyrics, it’s pretty much the perfect rock song. Front woman Drew Citron shared the following origin story about the track and their collaboration with Kip Berman: “Scott Rosenthal (guitarist in Beverly) and Continue…
