  1. Single Serving: VÉRITÉ – Weekend

    Following her impressive debut single “Strange Enough,” New York-based indie pop and sensitive starlet VÉRITÉ returns with her new second-ever sparkling effort titled “Weekend” produced by Elliot Jacobson. VÉRITÉ explains the track by noting: “Weekend winds up sitting in a weird place for me, caught between the exhilaration of ‘you could bring me to life’ Continue…

    This new track from up-and-coming indie starlet VÉRITÉ sparkles brilliantly.

  2. Single Serving: Lauryn Hill – Black Rage

    At first, I was tempted to leave this here without comment, and, to some extent, I’m still going to do just that. I think the message speaks for itself given recent events. Besides, if that’s not enough, the lyrics themselves provide all of the additional context you could possibly need. Still, I can’t resist simply noting Continue…

  3. Single Serving: The Twilight Sad – There’s a Girl in the Corner

    There are few acts that exist in a perpetual state of sadness quite like The Twilight Sad; for a simple comparison, they make their also-sad-and-also-Scottish peers Frightened Rabbit and We Were Promised Jetpacks sound like Bobby McFerrin hopped up on Pharrell’s latest single. But like Eeyore and Charlie Brown, The Twilight Sad’s reliable melancholy is Continue…

  4. Single Serving: Mikky Ekko – Smile

    “Smile, the worst is yet to come / we’ll be lucky if we ever see the sun,” sounds like something your local End-of-Days hawker would shout from a street corner, but it’s quite different from the mouth of Mikky Ekko. Bright and expansive, his recently released single, “Smile” is an ode to the loss of Continue…

  5. Single Serving: Caribou – Our Love

    In no way has this summer been the summer of Caribou, but it has been a summer bookended by Caribou. Back in June, the Canadian producer dropped the first single from his forthcoming Our Love, and now, as August comes to a close, he’s released the album’s equally restrained title track. “Our Love” is a Continue…

  6. Single Serving: S – Brunch

    As a former member of Carissa’s Weird, it’s no surprise Jenn Ghetto’s solo project S is an emotionally charged musical endeavor. But, thankfully, with her latest track “Brunch” it’s not just about bringing the sad. Even with lyrics that detail a bad breakup, the catchy vocal performance and instrumentation bounce along enough to mask some Continue…

  7. Single Serving: The Rural Alberta Advantage – On The Rocks

    “On The Rocks” by Toronto indie rockers The Rural Alberta Advantage is, according to lead singer Nils Edenloff, about both accepting that a romantic relationship is ending and also related to his first trip to Newfoundland and Labrador (Canada’s easternmost province, also referred to as “The Rock”). And these lyrical themes blend beautifully with the Continue…

  8. Single Serving: CATHEDRALS – OOO AAA

    The hype cycle can launch a band’s career nearly overnight these days. That’s been true for our friends in CATHEDRALS. The San Francisco-based duo (Brodie Jenkins and Johnny Hwin) seem to burst out of the gate to critical acclaim and a devoted fan base. Still, their success has come as little surprise to anyone familiar with their Continue…

  9. Single Serving: Lea Santee – Open Water

    I’m in love with this (single) “Open Water” by Austrian duo Lea Santee (i.e. vocalist Lea Stöger and producer Manuel Hosp). The beguiling cut is built around a tapestry of warm, spliced vocal tones and slow moving waves of deep synths to accompany Stöger’s croon. They’re definitely one to watch.

  10. Single Serving; Tennis – I’m Callin’

    Denver husband and wife duo Tennis further experiment with disco-grooves and dreamy pop vibes on their latest track “I”m Callin’.” It’s bright, springy and neon-lit – and, more importantly, a ton of fun. It’s the second single from their forthcoming LP Ritual In Repeat which drops on September 9th via Communion. If you missed it before Continue…

  11. Single Serving: HAIM – My Song 5 feat. A$AP Ferg

    Last month HAIM released a new remix of their single “My Song 5″ featuring a verse from A$AP Ferg. The remix was dropped to celebrate HAIM’s seventh year together as a band. The original version of the song appeared on their excellent album Days Are Gone (which you can score on vinyl here). Today they Continue…
