  1. Single Serving: CVIRO & GXNXVS – Benjamins

    Australian vocalist CVIRO (pronounced “Cairo”) partners with producer GXNXVS (pronounced “Genius”) for this smooth and understated jam. Throughout, they take subtle cues from 90′s r&b and 80′s beat work while thoughtfully pairing those influences with contemporary production. The result is totally slick. It’s the title track form CVIRO’s forthcoming five-track EP that should drop soon.

    Take a listen to a slick and smooth groove from Australian vocalist CVIRO and producer GXNXVS.

  2. Single Serving: Paperwhite – Magic EP (Full EP Stream)

    Without a doubt, Paperwhite have proven to be one of the most consistently rewarding new pop music projects we’ve heard this year. The New York-based duo (a.k.a. brother and sister Ben and Katie Marshall) have been near unstoppable as they’ve slowly teased out irresistible, sugary sweet (but never saccharine) pop confections one after another. Today you can finally Continue…

  3. Single Serving: Speelburg – Kline

    Speelburg (a.k.a. Noah Sacré) returns with the fittingly cinematic yet unexpectedly rootsy new single “Kline.” It’s a smokey slice of pop noir initiated with little more than a fleeting swell of strings and a shuffling, off-kilter rhythm to accompany Sacré’s croon as he sings, “Dead and gone. Not too long. I’ll be right behind you, if I keep Continue…

  4. Single Serving: MY BODY – All I Can

    In the words of Elvis Costello, “Welcome to the working week. I know it don’t thrill you, and I hope it don’t kill you.” Personally, I’m off to a slow start, but this clattering and exotic groove from Brooklyn’s MY BODY is helping me kick things off. Take a listen below.

  5. Single Serving: RÉN – Time

    We’ve been listening to this debut single from Brooklyn up-and-comer RÉN (a.k.a. Renée Orshan) on repeat since it showed up in our inbox this morning. After all, “Time” has a slick, smooth groove to it thanks to the rubbery bass riff and tight, bouncing beat that accompanies Orshan as she sings bright-eyed and optimistically about taking chances on Continue…

  6. Single Serving: Oyinda – Restless

    London-raised Nigerian Oyinda has been rising fast over the course of the past few months based on the strength of her initial singles and her first ever live performance at this Summer’s Lollapalooza. Indeed, her latest offering “Restless” is the first and final track from her debut EP Before The Fall. It showcases all of the Continue…

  7. Single Serving: Deers – Castigadas en el Granero

    As the Internet has expanded and intensified, so has the internet-goer’s need for instant gratification. For the Madrid-based band Deers, however, that luxury-turned-necessity is purely a gift: last year, the then-duo formed, quickly posted a couple tracks to SoundCloud and received a steady stream of praise. Instantly. Deers—who has since grown to a four-piece—recently recorded Continue…

  8. Single Serving: Monogem – Wait and See

    Monogem is a boy girl collaboration comprised of Jen Hirsh and Scott Smith, who introduced themselves to the world earlier this year with an impressive debut called “Wait and See.” The song is about dreams, and every time I hear it, my mind can’t help but travel to the future. Smith’s synths beat like a robot feeling Continue…

  9. Single Serving: Daye Jack – Hello World

    Daye Jack is a rapper brand new to the hip hop scene this year, with one mixtape and a mounting pile of accolades to his name. He’s also an 18-year-old computer science student at NYU, born in Nigeria and raised in Atlanta. If that sounds like an unlikely formula for a future alt-rap heavy hitter, Continue…

  10. Single Serving: DEATHS – Sold

    After wowing us a couple of months back with their enchanting debut single, Berlin-based collective DEATHS return today with their second-ever release. Like their previous offering, this one is gorgeous, atmospheric and darkly-lit. Indeed, the moody “Sold” is cold as ice. With a skeletal beat, haunting vocals, and starkly ringing guitar riffs, it’s both visceral and mesmerizing. It’s released by Continue…

  11. Kindness – Otherness

    Genres are an infuriatingly inadequate means of describing a song. Pop in particular is an incredibly amorphous genre. For example, Chubby Checker’s “The Twist” was a pop hit in 1960. Compare that one to Radiohead’s 2000 opus Kid A – also described as pop music (including by frontman Thom Yorke) – and you’ll struggle to find much in the Continue…
