Single Serving: VA – Faux Real (Record Store Day 2014 Release)

April 18th, 2014 Various-Artists-Faux-Real-Art

As much as I love Record Store Day, I’m also starting to realize just how non-essential most of the releases are. Let’s face it, with a few notable exceptions every year, most of the releases collect dust on your shelf and rarely get played. And of the best releases I’ve scored, many prove to be […]

Single Serving: It Looks Sad. – Radical

April 17th, 2014 It Looks Sad

With a name like It Looks Sad. you almost expect an opening line like the one heard in ‘Radical,’ which concerns itself with trying to get some sleep on a deathbed. But amidst the darkness of singer Jimmy Turner’s lyrics and claim of their moniker, there’s a shimmery tone and calmness of delivery that paints […]

Single Serving: Lazyeyes – Lazyeyes EP

April 17th, 2014 Lazyeyes

I often wonder just what it is within my brain chemistry or deoxyribonucleic acid that predisposes me to the varied types of music I hold most dear. Perhaps I’m being too scientific about it; rarely does one hear, ‘that song speaks to my DNA.’ So if science has little or nothing to do with it, […]

Single Serving: WL – Nothing Anymore (demo)

April 16th, 2014 WL - 7 inch

Portland-based trio WL have flown under the radar for long enough now, but something tells me that’s gonna change soon. Take a listen to the demo for their slow burning shoegaze jam “Nothing Anymore” for an idea of what they’re brewing up. There’s a hazy vibe, smoky female crooning, and a tumbling surf-rock inspired rhythm. […]

April 16th, 2014 The Bones of J.R. Jones

The latest bluesy jam from our friend J. R. Linaberry, a.k.a. The Bones of J.R. Jones, kicks with some serious stomp. Led by a frentic riff, a bounding bass, and handclaps for days and days, it’s pure fire. It’s the first single off his new LP Dark was the Yearling which will see a release […]

Single Serving: Yalls – High Society

April 15th, 2014 Yalls - United

To the surprise of pretty much no one, this new Yalls (a.k.a. Dan Casey) album sounds like it’s shaping up incredibly well. We scoped out the album’s excellent first single “Warlord” awhile back, and now we’re hooked on the softly glistening vibes of “High Society.” This latest jam slowly builds to a simmer around a […]

Single Serving: Brett – Chalon

April 14th, 2014 Brett_Chalon

Blurring the line between pop aesthetics and studio science, Washington D.C.’s five-piece Brett trades in golden melodies and knock-out songcraft.

Single Serving: Donovan Blanc – Minha Menina

April 11th, 2014 11183_JKT

Donovan Blanc, the project of duo Joseph Black and Raymond Schwab, may be recording their jams in New Jersey, but their debut single “Minha Menina” exudes a sepia-tinted warmth that would have been right at home wafting through the alleys of Sao Paulo in the 1970s. Indeed, there is a certain timelessness to the lush, […]
