  1. This Is The Kit – Bashed Out

    Bashed Out, the third full length from Paris-based songwriter Kate Stables (better known as This Is The Kit), is a morning album. Like the sunrise, it is infused with warmth, subtlety, and restrained energy. It’s bright, optimistic, and moves at a very deliberate pace. Indeed, each note, each ringing cymbal, each cold swipe across the Continue…

    Elegant and understated, we think This Is The Kit's 'Bashed Out' is one of the year's best releases so far.


  2. Single Serving: Wet – Deadwater

    Following on from last year’s self-titled EP, Brooklyn trio Wet are set to release their debut full-length entitled Don’t You. It’s scheduled for this fall for release via National Anthem and Columbia Records. Listen below to the album’s lead single – the dark, atmospheric and melancholy “Deadwater”.

  3. Single Serving: Unknown Mortal Orchestra – Can’t Keep Checking My Phone

    New Zealand psych-pop trio Unknown Mortal Orchestra just shared “Can’t Keep Checking My Phone.” It’s the second single to drop from their forthcoming record Multi-Love set for a release on May 26th through Jagjaguwar. With lyrics such as “We read the universe might be holographic. Traffic lights might reverse my love,” this new piece of Continue…

  4. Single Serving: Girlpool – Before The World Was Big

    In another cut from Girlpool‘s highly anticipated debut album, “Before The World Was Big” is a bare little number that drips with nostalgia. Recognizing how big and bad the world really is post-childhood, Girlpool channel their angst over growing up into a surprisingly bright song. Before The World Was Big is out June 2nd via Wichita Recordings.

  5. Single Serving: Shura – Indecision (Jungle Remix)

    Shura‘s “Indecision” got remixed by Jungle and I can’t imagine a better way to kick off the weekend. The new take on the tune inserts a trace of Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” into a spacious, disco vibe. It’s smoooooooth. Record collectors can grab a white label version of this tomorrow as part of Record Store Continue…

  6. Single Serving: Stealing Sheep – Greed

    Stealing Sheep have been capturing my attention in a big way recently. For example, their slow grooving latest single “Greed” is a hallucinatory cut of psychedelic pop that’s as intoxicating as it is warming. Likewise, the bright and heady “Pas Réel” (a French version of the album’s title track) is a perfect slice of off-kilter Continue…

  7. Single Serving: Tei Shi – Verde EP

    Our friend Tei Shi‘s new Verde EP dropped the other day and it’s quickly proving to be one of our favorite releases this year.  It’s both cerebral and visceral, packed full of beautifully textured vibes (closing track “Get It” in particular is delicious headphones candy) and powerfully kinetic riffs (single “Bassically” is pure Beast Mode). Continue…

  8. Single Serving: Institute – Perpetual Ebb

    Catharsis is the debut album from Austin-based punk rockers Institute and if the rest of it sounds anything like it’s first single “Perpetual Ebb” then it’ll be a ball of pure fire. I don’t know about you, but I could use a lot more like this in my life. Catharsis drops June 9th via Sacred Continue…

  9. Single Serving: Legs – Altitud

    Brooklyn-by-way-of-Seattle newcomers LEGS are making an impression with a pair of irresistible new singles. For example, their latest release “Jungle” is a bright, driving jam with a funky rhythm and a catchy-as-hell hook (oh, and it has a fun video to accompany it). Meanwhile, the previously released “Top Of The World” oozes with dance hall-ready Continue…

  10. Single Serving: Empress Of – Water Water

    Lorely Rodriguez, a.k.a. Empress Of, just announced her debut record which is scheduled to drop via Terrible Records later this Summer. To go along with the announcement she’s sharing the album’s first single “Water Water.” Here’s what her label had to say about the track: It’s New Years Eve and Lorely is by herself in Continue…
