  1. Single Serving: Kevin Morby – We Did It All Wrong

    LA-via-Brooklyn’s Kevin Morby is on a bit of a roll these days. Following the release of last year’s excellent Harlem River via Woodsist, Morby returns with “We Did It All Wrong.” Opting to drop his often intrinsic lyrics for an instrumental number, the track is no less meditative and serene than previous efforts. The b-side to a forthcoming 7″, Continue…

    Take a listen to the springy but meditative new single from Kevin Morby (Woods/The Babies).

  2. Single Serving: Perfume Genius – Queen

    Mike Hadreas, the Seattle-based artist known as Perfume Genius, is trying to get our attention. His upcoming third album, Too Bright, is a marked deviation from the softer synth folk of his past—he’s diving headlong into crisp, sweet pop with a center of turmoil. “Queen,” the first single to be released off of the new Continue…

  3. TK035: Paperwhite – Take Me Back b/w Magic

    Nostalgia is powerful. That sense of longing for the past can be deeply evocative. But what’s particularly interesting to me as a fan of music is how music can transmit a sense of longing for times and places we’ve never experienced. For example, when I listen to the 1973 LP Gil & Jorge I feel Continue…

  4. Single Serving: Courtney Barnett – “Pickles from the Jar”

    Courtney Barnett is funny. She doesn’t bust your britches—or tell actual jokes, for that matter. But the way in which she can create humor out of mundane, everyday situations makes her undeniably funny. Her latest, “Pickles from the Jar,” is a simple rock song wherein the singer-songwriter lists off all the ways her and her Continue…

  5. Single Servings: Lil Silva – Don’t You Love (Feat. BANKS)

    UK producer Lil Silva teams up with one our favorite hotly tipped artists, BANKS, for this jam. It’s a track from Lil Silva’s up-coming Mabel EP. It opens with a warbled ambiance and Lil Silva’s softly crooned vocals before the low end hits and BANKS struts across the stage and momentarily steals the spotlight. You can preorder Continue…

  6. Single Serving: FKA Twigs – Pendulum

    This new vibe “Pendulum” from FKA Twigs might just make you tingle. Initially it sets off with an clicking, clockwork-like precision before bursting into a kaleidoscopic swirl of warm synths, bubbling bass, and skittering snare drums to accompany her mostly breathless, feather-light croon. It’s pretty incredible. You can pre-order her debut LP with a bonus 7″ and 4 art prints from Continue…

  7. Single Serving: Laura Doggett – Phoenix

    With “Phoenix,” the newest mistress of dark pop has emerged. For Laura Doggett’s debut song, the title is fitting—the British artist rose out of obscurity and (if we have anything to say about it) is on the fast track to join the ranks of electro croon-queens Banks and MØ. The track’s seamless, eerie production comes Continue…

  8. Jungle – Jungle

    Following a series of no less than six singles dropped over the past year, UK-based duo Jungle have earned our attention with a slick mix of smokey soul, swagger-filled indie funk, and headphones-friendly disco. With that much hustle, it was easy to pick them as one of our top new artists to watch this year. And, perhaps unsurprisingly, they also demonstrated that they Continue…

  9. Single Servings: The Night VI – Wonderlust (IYES Remix)

    wonderlust-IYES-opt

    The Night VI‘s latest offering “Wonderlust” is an upbeat and bouncing tune with an irresistible melody. We were pretty much hooked on first listen. So we’re happy to see that our buds IYES liked it enough to try their hand at reinventing the tune. Indeed, as they’d done with their remix of Paperwhite‘s catchy summer jam “Magic” – IYES completely Continue…

    Welcome to the freshly baked download page for TK034. This month we’ve been inspired by the heat of warm summer nights and the mix reflects that theme. It’s a nice blend of scorched rock n roll and steamy synth pop. As always, it was compiled by listening to hours and hours of submissions and picking out our Continue…

  11. Single Serving: Júníus Meyvant – “Color Decay”

    Unlike its title suggests, “Color Decay”—the debut single from Iceland’s Júníus Meyvant—is timeless. The track not only hits on the wonder of Van Morrison and Belle and Sebastian with its playful percussion and upbeat acoustic rhythms, but it also calls out to current characters like Edward Sharpe and The Lumineers with its heart-tugging, broad sweeping Continue…
