  1. Single Serving: La Plage – Rendez Vous

    As leaves start to turn, it’s easy to fixate on the bone-cold winter ahead. Luckily, La Plage is here to help. Their summer-centric indie pop emanates warmth, and they’ll even help you work up a sweat if you’re willing to dance shamelessly to tracks like “Rendez Vous,” which I definitely am. La Plage (“beach,” en Continue…

    Belgian trio La Plage offer some summer-centric indie pop on "Rendez Vous" - a danceable groove that emanates warmth.

  2. Single Serving: Puro Instinct – 6 Of Swords

    It’s been a little while since we last heard from Puro Instinct (a.k.a. sisters Piper and Skylar Kaplan). Far too long for my liking. Happily, they’ve returned with new single “6 of Swords.” It’s a glittery, dubby, dance-friendly groove. Rumor has it they’re hard at work on a new album and this is our first taste. Take a Continue…

  3. Single Serving: Salt Cathedral – Justified

    Salt Cathedral are dishing out another serving from their excellent new OOM VELT EP this afternoon, so I hope you’ve saved room for another bite. “Justified” is the EP’s penultimate track and it sets an enigmatic vibe with its cavernous soundstage and twinkling ambiance. Like the samples we’ve tasted before this, it’s airy, lightly textured, and Continue…

  4. Single Serving: Wonder Wonder – Shark

    London rookies Wonder Wonder return with the smoldering single “Shark.” It’s the second release from their debut record which they’ll be teasing one track a month over the course of the next year. Like the previously released “Body Gold,” this one is built around a flowing, smooth melody and tight rhythm. It’s a more pastoral than it’s predecessor with a spacious Continue…

  5. Alvvays – Alvvays

    Relatable and infectious, the debut record by Toronto-based jangle pop rockers Alvvays (pronounced “always” in case you were wondering) is proof that a band doesn’t need to surprise you to win over your heart. Indeed, the canvas of choice for the Molly Rankin-led band’s self-titled debut is fuzzy, reverb-heavy indie pop a la every fuzzy, reverb-heavy indie Continue…

  6. Single Serving: Field Report – “Marigolden”

    The best songs are the ones that unravel themselves with each repeated listen. “Marigolden,” the latest single from Field Report’s upcoming, fantastic sophomore effort, is one of those songs. Frontman Chris Porterfield told the A.V. Club the track’s title refers “to a state of sharing characteristics of a marigold, which is a brutish flower found Continue…

  7. Pairings Box 3rd Anniversary Mixtape and Giveaway

    “Nothing turns a house into a home like music and cooking.” I’m anonymously quoting a gift message that accompanied a recent Pairings Box gift because it perfectly sums up the reason we created both Turntable Kitchen and, later, the Pairings Box. We believe that happiness is being surrounded by family and friends, with a favorite record playing Continue…

  8. Single Serving: SALES – getting it on

    Breakups aren’t like they are in the movies. There are very rarely slammed doors or screaming matches in fancy restaurants. More often, they’re a series of awkward and barely-spoken messages of shifting uncertainty until at least one person’s heart breaks. SALES, a Florida-based duo that just put out its debut EP on Monday, tells that Continue…

  9. Single Serving: Yellerkin – Tools

    Brooklyn duo Yellerkin (Adrian Galvin and Luca Buccellati) impressed us last year with their debut EP and lead single “Solar Laws.” They’ve returned with a catchy and pulsating new single titled “Tools.” “‘Tools’ is a kind of anthemic generational song, but one that toes the line between triumph and tragedy” explains Galvin, who further adds “This song Continue…

  10. Single Serving: Thom Yorke – A Brain In A Bottle

    Earlier today, Thom Yorke (you know, the one from that Radiohead band) released a new album of material via BitTorrent Bundles. You can download the single “A Brain In A Bottle” and it’s music video for free and/or the whole album Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes for a mere $6.00. The album is also available on deluxe 180 gram white vinyl edition house Continue…

  11. Single Serving: Young Jesus – “G”

    Before there was Yeezus, there was—both in theory and in actuality—Young Jesus, a band that’s been bumming around the Chicago area since 2009. The five-piece quietly released their overflowing debut, Home, in 2012 and has (until now) been spending their time crafting a follow-up record, the recently-announced Growl/Decompose. “G,” an enormous, catchy tale about a Continue…
