Single Servings

  1. Single Serving: Lewis Del Mar – Memories

    Rockaway Beach duo Lewis Del Mar caught our attention recently with their solid debut single “Loud(y).” In fact, we included it on a recent Pairings Box mixtape of the “best new music” we’d heard recently. Happily, they’re back already with an even more powerful follow up titled “Memories.” This new one is beautifully textured cut Continue…

    Take a listen to a soulful, beautifully textured new single "Memories" from Rockaway Beach duo Lewis Del Mar.

  2. Single Serving: Small Black – Boys Life

    Earlier this morning, Brooklyn’s Small Black announced their new album Best Blues will drop October 16th via the fine folks at Jagjaguwar. The album is described as “an album about loss, the specific loss of precious people in our lives, but also the loss of memories and the difficult fight to preserve them.” They’ve also Continue…

  3. Single Serving: Holy Holy – Sentimental and Monday

    For being a band only a couple years in the making, Australian bred Holy Holy’s sound, content, and composition compares favorably to those of bands who have been making music for decades. Their debut LP When the Storms Would Come has (unfortunately for the rest of the world) only been released to Australia as of Continue…

  4. Single Serving: IYES – No Wonder

    Before last week it’d been months since we’d heard any new music from IYES. Then, last week, they dropped the rainbow-hued “So Crazy” and casually mentioned that it was the first single from “a few EPs” they’d been working on. Well, it certainly hasn’t taken very long for them to hook us up with another taste. Today we get Continue…

  5. Single Serving: vōx – Claws

    I’m definitely feeling this new single “Claws” from vōx (a.k.a. Sarah Winters). It’s brand new and may be one of her strongest singles yet. It’s built around a sweeping and cinematic soundscape, swirling harp notes, hip hop-inspired rhythms, and (of course) Winters’ warm croon. Take a listen.

  6. Single Serving: SPORTS – Saturday

    SPORTS, the newest member of San Fransisco label Father/Daughter Records, are set to release their sophomore record All of Something this fall. A must hear for fans of label mates Diet Cig, their album’s first single “Saturday” is as much infectious and rambunctious as it is filled with anxiety. Just over a minute long, “Saturday” will leave you feeling buzzed. 

  7. Single Serving: Pure Bathing Culture – Pray For Rain

    We’re kinda gushing over this new Pure Bathing Culture single this afternoon. With a shimmery vibe and a grinding, danceable groove, “Pray For Rain” is going straight to heavy rotation. Beyond that, we’ll let it speak for itself. The new album Pray For Rain drops on October 23 and you can pre-order it now from Continue…

  8. Single Serving: Kurt Vile – Pretty Pimpin

    Kurt Vile has announced the follow up to his excellent 2013 Wakin On A Pretty Daze. Titled b’lieve i’m goin down… it drops in September via Matador Records. You can preorder the album on 2xLP or deluxe 3xLP (with bonus tracks) here. He’s also released the album’s first single/video for the track “Pretty Pimpin” which Continue…

  9. Single Serving: IYES – So Crazy

    Our friends in Brighton’s IYES tell us they are back with a few(!) new EPs. We’ll have to wait to hear them in their entirety but for now we can sink our teeth into the swirling, rainbow-hued “So Crazy.” Built around co-ed vocals and a very danceable groove, it’s another hit for the duo. Enjoy!

  10. Single Serving: Mac Demarco – No Other Heart

    Mac DeMarco’s eight-track mini-LP Another One is sounding awfully promising based on what we’ve heard so far. Today we get another taste via jazzy, bright new single “No Other Heart.” As a reminder, you can pre-order the LP on limited-edition wax (with a bonus slip mat) here.

  11. Single Serving: Rayland Baxter – Young Man

    As of about an hour ago Rayland Baxter‘s forthcoming LP Imaginary Man has currently become my most anticipated album at this particular moment in time (Sorry Widowspeak, your album isn’t set to drop till September 4th). Dramatically different from his first two beautiful, bright and rather upbeat releases, “Young Man” takes a dark turn towards the Continue…
