    ExclusiveTK036

    Welcome to the download page for TK036. Below you’ll find downloadable MP3s of the tracks from this month’s single alongside MP3s for this month’s mixtape. Speaking of which, we’re doing something a little different with the mixtape this month. Specifically, we asked Rick Moreno of Duly Noted Records to curate this mix. If you’re not Continue…

  2. Single Serving: Running In The Fog – $ign$

    San Francisco’s Running In The Fog (a.k.a. Amanda Harper) is back with a brand new cut of smooth, space-infused soul titled “$ign$.” Characteristic of the material from Harper’s excellent debut EP Silver, this one features an enigmatically dark groove built from a sparse electronic rhythm and Harper’s soulful vocals. It’s the first cut from her debut full length and it’s being released Continue…

  3. Single Serving: Restorations – Misprint

    Philadelphia is a city with a great musical heritage and continues to produce plenty of great bands. Enter Restorations, a Philly band who wears influences like The Replacements, Bruce Springsteen and especially, in my opinion, Constantines, on their sleeve. But instead of coming across as a mere copycat, Restorations exist in their own musical realm. Continue…

  4. Single Serving: Ibeyi – Mama Says

    Twin sisters Ibeyi have just released a beautifully emotive track entitled “Mama Says.” Austere and heartbreaking, the tune tells the story of a woman who has lost her husband and is trapped in despair. Daughters of the famed Cuban percussionist Anga Díaz, the sisters don’t fall far from the tree: The song is sung in Continue…

  5. Single Serving: Little Big League – Tropical Jinx

    With links to bands like Strand Of Oaks and Titus Andronicus, it’s no surprise Little Big League sound like a band inspired by indie rock and punk. Their 2012 LP These Are Good People remains an underrated gem, and their latest single (also the name of their upcoming full-length) ‘Tropical Jinx’ is more evidence that Continue…

  6. Single Serving: Mr Twin Sister – In The House

    Funky and sparkling, Mr Twin Sister‘s “In the House” is a perfect track to kick off the weekend. It breaks open with a tentative rhythm and occasional ivory flourishes before the bouncing dance groove gets fully lit with neon-bright disco lights and a lively, pulsating beat. I could say more, but I’d rather let your feet do the talking. In other words, Continue…

  7. Single Serving: Milosh – Right Never Comes

    Rhye frontman Mike Milosh (who performs simply under the name Milosh) just revealed a soft and pillowy new tune titled “Right Never Comes.” The steamy and seductive tune floats along a clicking rhythm and Milosh’s gorgeous croon. Rhye has announced that the tune will be debuted live on their upcoming tour (dates listed below). Rhye tour dates: 10-03 Continue…

  8. Single Serving: 18+ – Crow

    Los Angeles’ duo 18+ have managed to retain an impressive degree of anonymity since forming in 2011 (the duo’s real names remain a mystery). Of course, being anonymous isn’t the same as being completely unknown. Indeed, they’ve released a trio of critically acclaimed underground mixtapes and licensed tracks to Prada and Venice Biennale. So the pair, whoever they are, are doing something Continue…

  9. Single Serving: Angel Olsen – All Right Now

    We think Angel Olsen‘s Burn Your Fire For No Witness has proven to be one of the year’s best albums (maybe even the year’s best). So it’s entirely welcome news that it’ll get the (digital only) deluxe edition treatment on November 18th via Jagjaguwar. The deluxe edition of the album contains five bonus tracks including the newly released “All Continue…

  10. Single Serving: Is/Is – Before The Stars

    Is/Is is the project of Portland-by-way-of-Minneapolis duo Sarah Rose & Sarah Nienaber. Their latest collection Shadow Days is a collection of dusty, scorched earth psychedelic ballads that are as lovely as they are haunted. For example, standout “Before The Stars” is a sparse, wind-swept vibe constructed from languid acoustic guitar riffs, ghostly atmospherics, and Rose’s softly sung lyrics. It’s a little eerie and a Continue…

  11. Single Serving: Fiancé – Ivy

    I have some fond, hazy memories of the town Newark, Delaware, based upon my younger days visiting a friend who went to the University in town. In addition to having a D.P. Dough, Newark also happens to be the town from whence the band Fiancé hails. Based off the first two tracks from their forthcoming Continue…
