Single Servings

  1. Single Serving: Houndmouth – Casino

    This may be my longest post to date…..okay well it’s only my third post, so that’s not saying much. First – a little #historylesson for ya here. So there used to be this website called “We Are Hunted,” basically it was a chart for emerging artists, an indie top 100 so to speak. Well long Continue…

    Houndmouth's "Casino" might be the perfect track to listen to while sitting on a log and sipping some Johnny Walker out of a tin cup. Just sayin'.

  2. Single Serving: Crying – Batang Killjoy

    If you’re in need of some seriously fun melodies combined with epic video game sounds, you’ll want to press play on the latest offering from Crying. And that description merely scratches the surface of the band’s sound. The delicate vocals of lead singer Elaiza Santos float underneath the calculated yet chaotic mix – creating something Continue…

  3. Single Serving: Monster Rally & Jay Stone – Cognac (feat. Brandon Rayson)

    Exotic rhythm manipulator Monster Rally (a.k.a. Ted Feighan) is back and this time he’s brought friends. His latest, Foreign Pedestrians, is the first collaborative release between the LA-based producer and Oakland-based emcee Jay Stone. On the album’s smoky lounge set first single “Cognac” Feighan lays out a funky, sax-sampling vibe for Stone and guest emcee Brandon Rayson to spill out juicy narratives about Continue…

  4. Single Serving: Josef Salvat – Open Season

    When I heard Josef Salvat‘s “Every Night” for the first time last year my finger developed some sort of compulsive disorder, it kept hitting repeat…..repeat….repeat, repeat, repeat. The song was, relaxing, cheerful and encouraging; I just couldn’t get enough. New songs eventually fade on the ears and we all move on to the next great Continue…

  5. Single Serving: Carroll – Bad Water

    “Bad Water,” the first single from Carroll’s forthcoming debut record, recalls the dreaminess of Wild Nothing and the ease of Real Estate. Steeped in longing synths and familiar guitars, the track fits as comfortably as your favorite fall sweater and sounds as pretty as the leaves look when their colors start to run. Honestly, there’s Continue…

  6. Single Serving: Paperwhite – Pieces

    Our friends Katie and Ben from Paperwhite announced their debut EP today and dropped a new single to coincide with the announcement. The slick new cut is titled “Pieces” and it’s a twinkling, neon-tinged jam that’s as bright as it is magnetic. Katie explains “Pieces” by noting that it “describes the trance and magnetism of love at first Continue…

  7. Single Serving: Mexico City Blondes – Fade

    “Fade left fade right Fade out completely Without all this noise I could sing so sweetly” Like a scene in a movie, the noise in the background fades and all that’s left is the thoughts of the protagonist; a preteen being lectured by his parents, drifting off to the playground. A mid 40′s man in Continue…

  8. Single Serving: Sheer Mag – What You Want

    sheer-mag

    Sheer Mag is a spanking new band out of Philly whose music sounds like its forty years old. Their debut single, “What You Want,” is a scrappy song bolstered by fuzzy guitars and an even fuzzier vocal performance—a carefree three and a half minutes that finds the perfect balance between power and pop. While nothing Continue…

  9. Single Serving: Speelburg – Aubrey

    Speelburg is the project of (written, directed and starring) Noah Sacré. Concise but grandly arranged and thoughtfully textured, his debut track “Aubrey” is a simmering r&b groove filled with stirring strings and clattering hip hop inspired percussion. Take a listen.

  10. Single Serving: Lost Boy ? – Hollywood

    For a group that sounds like the slightly-warped offspring of Wavves and old Weezer, Lost Boy ?’s newest track is pretty uplifting. “Hollywood” deals with stories of sadness in two of the most celebrated cities in the U.S.; New York and L.A. Hailing from the former’s buroughs, the indie punk quartet rebuffs the urban blues Continue…

  11. Single Serving: Tei Shi – Bassically

    Tei Shi (a.k.a. Valerie Teicher) returns today with a brand new jam titled “Bassically.” And we’re a little obsessed with it. Built from glossy drum machine beats and a kinetic bassline, it’s a beautiful disco pop groove that’ll make you want to bob your head, tap your feet, and eventually get up and dance.  All the while, Teicher showcases her Continue…
