Single Servings

  1. Single Serving: Hey Rosetta! – Kintsukuroi

    St. John’s, Newfoundland seven-piece Hey Rosetta! are set to release Second Sight, their follow-up to 2011′s fantastic Seeds – and the first single is another dazzling bit of indie pop. “Kintsukuroi” – which is named after the Japanese art form of fixing broken pottery with adhesives such as gold, platinum and silver – features a Continue…

  2. Single Serving: King Tuff – Black Moon Spell

    King Tuff Band Photo

    Raucous garage rocker King Tuff (a.k.a. Kyle Thomas) just dropped the title track from his forthcoming third full length Black Moon Spell. He also has an incredibly awesome publicity photo (see above). It (the song – not the publicity shot) is a grinding monster of a rock n’ roll jam constructed with a sludgy, grooving, reverb-drenched guitar riff and Continue…

  3. Single Serving: Jack and Eliza – Hold the Line

    For most, the college years were spent drinking, procrastinating and fighting to stay awake in class. For New York-based duo Jack and Eliza—students at NYU and Columbia—college has been a little more productive. During their freshman year, they signed to Yebo Music. Now, as bright-eyed sophomores, they’re preparing to drop their debut EP (ironically titled Continue…

  4. Single Serving: The Tallest Tree – I’ll Be Your

    You’d be well served kicking your weekend off with this incredibly catchy tune from The Tallest Tree (a.k.a. Dawn Larsh & Armando Vega). It’s only the third release from the Dundas, Ontario duo, but with its clean hook and bright, upbeat melody, it serves as a very auspicious introduction. They don’t try to do too much here. Continue…

  5. Single Serving: Evy Jane – Worry Heart

    It feels like we’ve been waiting forever for a new release from Evy Jane (a.k.a. Vancouver duo Evelyn Mason and Jeremiah Klein). In fact, it’s been over two years since they became one of TK’s favorite up-and-coming projects based on the strength of their debut tracks. Unfortunately, their output since that time has been relatively meager. Thankfully, they prove Continue…

  6. Single Serving: Cass McCombs – Night Of The World

    Enigmatic songwriter Cass McCombs and iconic 90′s rockers Meat Puppets just announced a co-headlining tour through the good ole’ United States. To commemorate the occasion they’re releasing a split 7″ single which features a pair of brand new songs by McCombs, “Night Of The World” and “Evangeline,” alongside a pair of covers by the Meat Puppets, “(Hey Baby), Que Paso” (originally by Continue…

  7. Single Serving: VÉRITÉ – Weekend

    Following her impressive debut single “Strange Enough,” New York-based indie pop and sensitive starlet VÉRITÉ returns with her new second-ever sparkling effort titled “Weekend” produced by Elliot Jacobson. VÉRITÉ explains the track by noting: “Weekend winds up sitting in a weird place for me, caught between the exhilaration of ‘you could bring me to life’ Continue…

  8. Single Serving: Lauryn Hill – Black Rage

    At first, I was tempted to leave this here without comment, and, to some extent, I’m still going to do just that. I think the message speaks for itself given recent events. Besides, if that’s not enough, the lyrics themselves provide all of the additional context you could possibly need. Still, I can’t resist simply noting Continue…

  9. Single Serving: The Twilight Sad – There’s a Girl in the Corner

    There are few acts that exist in a perpetual state of sadness quite like The Twilight Sad; for a simple comparison, they make their also-sad-and-also-Scottish peers Frightened Rabbit and We Were Promised Jetpacks sound like Bobby McFerrin hopped up on Pharrell’s latest single. But like Eeyore and Charlie Brown, The Twilight Sad’s reliable melancholy is Continue…

  10. Single Serving: Mikky Ekko – Smile

    “Smile, the worst is yet to come / we’ll be lucky if we ever see the sun,” sounds like something your local End-of-Days hawker would shout from a street corner, but it’s quite different from the mouth of Mikky Ekko. Bright and expansive, his recently released single, “Smile” is an ode to the loss of Continue…

  11. Single Serving: Caribou – Our Love

    In no way has this summer been the summer of Caribou, but it has been a summer bookended by Caribou. Back in June, the Canadian producer dropped the first single from his forthcoming Our Love, and now, as August comes to a close, he’s released the album’s equally restrained title track. “Our Love” is a Continue…
