Single Servings

  1. Single Serving: Oceaán – Veritas (Young & Sick’s Mixed Feelings)

    Los Angeles’ Young & Sick (the project of Nick van Hofwegen) tackles Oceaán‘s “Veritas” and holy shit does he ever nail it. He completely reframes the original with a brand new arrangement that maintains the original’s ivory-framed melody and vocals while constructing a brand new, bewitching composition. On repeat.

  2. Single Serving: Oxford Drama – Limbo

    We became a little obsessed with Polish duo Oxford Drama after discovering their debut EP earlier this year. Their latest single “Limbo” is set with a highly textured, slowly percolating ambiance that builds along a bright, bouncing bass riff and deep, gradually unfurling percussion. It’s lush and thoughtfully arranged; a warm and simmering treat for a Continue…

  3. Single Serving: Night Beds – Me, Liquor and God

    In 2013 Nashville native Winston Yellen (who records as Night Beds) released Country Sleep, a confident album full of folk-tinged, guitar driven tracks. He’s remained pretty quiet since, but recently dropped the new single “Me, Liquor and God” which signifies the beginning of a bold new sound for Night Beds. The wistful melodies of songs Continue…

  4. Single Serving: Spirit Faces – Cloudplay

    A steadfast xylophone melody, a drumbeat tumbling down a set of stairs, gentle storytelling vocal sets and a triumphant synth, Spirit Faces‘ “Cloudplay” is a dynamic masterpiece. Completely original and addicting……….it’s like a pop hybrid. He doesn’t have many Soundcloud followers yet, but I’m sure that will change drastically as this Sydney based, wet behind the Continue…

  5. Single Serving: Osca – Blood (GEMS Remix)

    The debut single “Blood” by London four piece Osca get’s the remix treatment courtesy of our friends in GEMS. And it’s just as sweeping, darkly lit and cinematic as you might expect from a collaboration by the two up-and-coming bands. Take a listen to the remix and the original below. It’ll give you chills.

  6. Single Serving: Mahaut Mondino – The Great Elements

    Mahaut Mondino made her stateside debut at the end of November with an utterly addicting single, “The Great Elements.” The genre-bending Parisian songstress jumps between vocal registers with stunning agility, set along clean piano and a groove-worthy pulse. Thematically, she pulls from the ancient Greek philosopher Empedocles, who is cited with the four-element theory of Continue…

  7. Single Serving: POP ETC – Follow You Down (Gin Blossoms Cover)

    The Bay Area is in the midst of what we’re (jokingly) referring to as “the storm of the century.” It may not hold a candle to the thunder storms I grew up with (and truly miss) in Ohio, but we are expecting it to be rainy and dreary for the next couple of days. So, Continue…

  8. Single Serving: Dent May – I’ll Be Stoned For Christmas

    It’s a holiday miracle! Mississippi’s Dent May makes his return with “I’ll Be Stoned For Christmas,” a psych-pop gem perfect for that long trek home many of us are about to make for the holidays. Jangly and lighthearted in standard May fashion, Christmas just got a whole lot groovier. Thanks Dent. Here’s to hoping there’s Continue…

  9. Single Serving: Daniel Wilson – The Boy Who Cried Thunder EP

    Let there be no doubt, Michigan songwriter Daniel Wilson is one of the year’s best new songwriters. And if you need convincing, his brand new Boy Who Cried Thunder EP makes a sufficiently compelling case. We’ve been eagerly following along as he slowly teased out the tracks from the EP and now we can finally hear the Continue…

  10. Single Serving: Purity Ring – Push Pull

    Dreamy and brightly melodic, Purity Ring just dropped the first single “Push Pull” from their new album. I’m what you’d call a “Purity Ring fan” so I’m more than happy to spend some time getting familiar with this new single. Take a listen and hear it for yourself.
