Single Servings

  1. Single Serving: Percussions – Digital Arpeggios

    Kieran Hebden, a.k.a. Four Tet, revives his Percussions moniker for this new one off single “Digital Arpeggios.” It’s a particularly entrancing cut of electronic minimalism that I keep finding myself coming back to this morning. You can buy it from Bleep if you’re so inclined.

    Percussions (a.k.a. Four Tet) is back with a particularly entrancing cut of electronic minimalism on new single "Digital Arpeggios."


  2. Single Serving: Foxing – The Magdalene

    Following the release of their stunning debut The Albatross back in 2013 – St. Louis band Foxing have been on tour seemingly non-stop, developing a devoted fanbase along the way. But as it turns out, they also managed to find some time to record a follow-up. The album is entitled Dealer – and the first single “The Continue…

  3. Single Serving: Apollo Brown – Not That Guy (feat. Your Old Droog)

    Michigan producer Apollo Brown is dropping a new album on September 25th via the always rewarding Mellow Music Group. It’ll feature contributions from folks like Freddie Gibbs, Your Old Droog, Oddisee, Sean Price, Rapper Big Pooh, and Evidence (amongst others). You can check out the LP’s first single “Not That Guy” featuring Your Old Droog Continue…

  4. Single Serving: CHINAH – We Go Back

    Definitely feeling the vibe on this new CHINAH jam. It kicks off with a smooth r&b groove before mutating into a funky, grinding synth cut that gradually fades out. I’m feelin’ in.

  5. Single Serving: Moses Sumney – Pleas

    Earlier this morning Moses Sumney served up the b-side, “Pleas”, to his new 7″ single. Featuring a swirling, gently-plucked melody to accompany Sumney’s pleading croon, it’s an exceptionally lovely tune. Take a listen below to hear for yourself. You can pick up the vinyl here.

  6. Single Serving: Jake McMullen – Always

    Twenty-two year old singer-songwriter Jake McMullen cites Ryan Adams, Bon Iver and James Vincent McMorrow as musical influences – and after listening to his new single “Always,” those reference points make total sense. The song is an introspective, soul-baring ballad of loneliness, disillusionment and desperation carried by the conviction in McMullen’s voice. And while the Continue…

  7. Single Serving: B.Miles – Salt

    B. Miles latest single “Salt” has me hypnotized in a constant state of repeat. With dynamics like a low frequency sine wave, “Salt” starts off simply, with hand claps and some palm muted guitar chords laid on top a track of back-ground coffee-shop conversations. The amplitude quickly rises though as the pace of Brenna’s vocals Continue…

  8. Single Serving: Small Black – No One Wants It To Happen To You

    Brooklyn’s Small Black are releasing their new album Best Blues on October 16th and as of this morning we can hear the album’s second single “No One Wants It To Happen To You.” This one rides a dark, bubbling bass riff through a hazy soundscape of starkly shimmering guitars and spacey, atmospheric synths. It all Continue…

  9. Single Serving: Françoise Hardy – Quel Mal Y A-t’il A Ça

    Light In The Attic has recently announced that they’ll be releasing brand new represses of five of Françoise Hardy‘s classic albums. Although several of these had been recently reissued on 180-gram in Europe, this is the first official U.S. release for many of these records in decades and, in some cases, ever. I’m particularly excited Continue…

  10. Single Serving: Here We Go Magic – Ordinary Feeling

    Here We Go Magic has announced that they’ll be returning with their first new collection of songs since 2012’s A Different Ship. They’d recently shared the album’s bubbly, synth-heavy first single “Falling” and, earlier today, they dropped the more intimate and stripped down ballad “Ordinary Feeling” which has a distinctly American Analog Set-like vibe to Continue…

  11. Single Serving: Promised Land Sound – Other Worldly Pleasures

    In a classic sounding psych-rock mix filled with guitar solos and hazy gang vocals, Nashville’s Promised Land Sound have a winner with the memorable “Other Worldly Pleasures.” A cut from their sophomore album For Use and Delight, Promised Land Sound are a cross-generational treat.
