  1. Single Serving: Young Summer – Taken

    With nearly an hour commute during during my work week, I find myself behind the wheel more than I really care to admit. In the act of summer fading into fall and the daylight hours narrowing I’ve grown to appreciate my east bound travels. The early morning sunrise coming over the quiet hillside gives me Continue…

    Take a listen to Young Summer's breathlessly enchanting single "Taken."

  2. Single Serving: Tei Shi – See Me

    By all accounts, Tei Shi (a.k.a. Valerie Teicher) had an exceptional CMJ showing this year - which will come as no surprise to fans of her excellent Saudade EP last year. And based on the new material she’s been releasing over the past few weeks, I fully expect her to be one of the highlights at next year’s SXSW. Indeed, earlier this morning she Continue…

  3. Single Serving: Skylar Fri – Man Is Strange

    This gem from Skylar Fri showed up in my inbox yesterday afternoon and was very nearly overlooked. But later, moments before deciding to call it a night, I opened the email (after skipping over dozens more), clicked on the Soundcloud link, clicked play, and found myself transported. I think it might just have been calling to Continue…

  4. Single Serving: Planetarian – Kiss

    You will be reminded of two important life lessons by the time you finish reading this entry. First thing’s first: Don’t judge a book by it’s cover. We’ve all heard it before, well the same goes for album art. Sunday morning I almost scrolled past this little gem of a song because of the very Continue…

  5. Single Serving: The 1975 – Medicine

    Manchester four-piece The 1975 have unveiled their sensitively emoted contribution to BBC Radio 1′s re-score of Nicolas Winding Refn’s modern classic Drive. The track is called “Medicine” and it marks the return of the band after their debut self-titled full-length out last year. “Medicine” proves to be the perfect match with this interesting concept and Continue…

  6. Single Serving: Communions – So Long Sun

    Nighttime summer anthems are enjoyable because we know that, in the summer, the blistering sun will return as quickly as it set. As fall folds into winter, however, the sun seems to be gone more than its present; we appreciate its setting less and less. Don’t fret though: Danish quartet Communions has an anecdote for Continue…

  7. Single Serving: Indiana – Jack

    I was first introduced to Lauren Henson, otherwise known as Indiana, back in early 2013 when she released her sinfully delicious single,”Bound” (which you can hear here). Her soft innocent vocals backed by a menacing beat, lured my ears closer and closer until a perfectly calculated electric guitar riff struck like a cobra on it’s Continue…

  8. Single Serving: Dirt Dress – Twelve Pictures

    “Twelve Pictures” — the latest single from LA trio Dirt Dress — is a steady march set on a solid foundation of constant drums, chant-along vocals and persistent, fuzzy guitars. But the best moments of “Twelve Pictures” occur when that dang saxophone butts in. And whether it’s the roughhousing it delivers after the first build, Continue…

  9. Single Serving: BRONCHO – Class Historian

    In a sense, power pop is simple: its just melodies and riffs—that’s it. Being able to craft catchy, succinct rock tunes, however, is a heck of a lot harder than it seems. Which is why “Class Historian,” a single from Oklahoma band BRONCHO’s Just Enough Hip to Be Woman, is so impressive. “Class Historian” is Continue…

  10. Single Serving: Angel Olsen – May As Well

    As we previously noted, Angel Olsen‘s excellent Burn Your Fire For No Witness is getting the deluxe treatment. The digital only deluxe edition includes 5 bonus tracks including the previously released “All Right Now” (which you can stream here). It also includes “May As Well” and “Endless Road” which will be familiar to anyone who scored a Continue…

  11. Single Serving: Shamir – On The Regular

    Pic by Aaron Richter. Las Vegas’ Shamir is easily one of our favorite new discoveries from 2014. His Northtown EP was one of those fantastic debuts that seemed to spring up from nowhere. It turns out we aren’t alone in our appreciation either. He’s recently signed with XL Recordings and he’s already filed a video for new track “On Continue…
