  1. TK048: MusicNOW: 10 Years

    Originally founded in 2006, MusicNOW is a one-of-a-kind music festival founded by The National’s Bryce Dessner held each year in Cincinnati, Ohio with a unique emphasis on musical experimentation and collaboration. Specifically, MusicNOW is dedicated to being an intimate music festival that serves as a creative refuge for the artists that participate in it—presenting new Continue…

    This month's Pairings Box vinyl boasts exclusive recordings featuring Justin Vernon, Sharon Van Etten, Matthew E. White, Clogs, The Books, and Bonnie "Prince" Billy.






  2. TK047: No Vacation – Amo XO

    I’m slightly embarrassed to admit that I discovered San Francisco’s No Vacation, who literally live in the same neighborhood as Kasey and me, thanks to a submission from our excellent Toronto-based music contributor Laura Stanley. But, although I’d always love to get the scoop on a band from my own backyard, I’ll happily settle with Continue…

  3. TK046: vōx – vōx EP

    She’s been called the “first great mystery act of 2015” and, in a recent rising artist feature, Pigeons & Planes raved over her “commanding” vocals and “forward thinking” production. Indeed, vōx, the brainchild of Los Angeles’ Sarah Winters, has been receiving critical praise from every corner including enthusiastic nods here on Turntable Kitchen and in Continue…

  4. TK045 – Harry Edwards – Imposter EP

    Despite having little more than a couple of years of songwriting under his belt, Norfolk-based producer Harry Edwards is already forging a name for himself as an artist to watch. Indeed, his music has already seen hundreds of thousands of plays by his growing fan base; received favorable comparisons to heavyweights like Flying Lotus and Continue…

  5. TK044: MONOGEM – MONOGEM EP

    We’ve been thoroughly enchanted by the glimmering electro-pop stylings of Los Angeles-based duo MONOGEM (songwriter/vocalist Jen Hirsh and producer Scott Smith) ever since we were first introduced to their smooth and uplifting vibes last year. In fact, with only a relatively concise EP to their name, we’re ready to label them as one of the Continue…

  6. TK043: Speelburg – Kline b/w Aubrey

    This month we’re incredibly excited to introduce one of our favorite new music discoveries: Speelburg. Written, directed, and produced by Brighton-based producer and songwriter Noah Sacré, Speelburg’s music is as sonically adventurous as it is beautifully cinematic. With only a pair of singles to his name (both of which are collected on this single), he’s Continue…

  7. TK042: Lunifred Benjamin – Autumn Suite for August Minor

    We’ve been super excited to share this one with you. Indeed, it’s no exaggeration to say that this month we’re featuring someone we consider to be one of the most unique and exciting songwriters we’ve stumbled upon in a long time. That said, you’d be forgiven if you’re not already familiar with the music of Continue…

  8. TK041: DEATHS – Lonewolves b/w Sold

    You might have expected rosy-cheeked ballads or silky bedroom jams for our February Pairing Box. After all, February is home to Valentine’s Day. For that reason, you may be surprised that we’ve tapped dark Berlin-based collective DEATHS as this month’s featured artist. Admittedly, their moniker is brooding and the music is far from upbeat, but Continue…

  9. TK040: Tei Shi – Saudade EP

    Tei Shi, aka Valerie Teicher, has quickly become one of our household’s favorite up-and-coming songwriters. In fact, if you follow us on our social media channels you’ll even find a video of our 2-year-old daughter getting down to Tei Shi jams. It’s safe to say we’re verging on obsessed. And why not? Val writes entrancing, winter-warming Continue…

  10. TK039: The Night VI – Heroine b/w Drifters

    Led by songwriters Jack Gourlay (guitars) & Sophie-Rose Harper (vocals), London sextet The Night VI spent the past year staking out a reputation as one of the music scene’s most consistently rewarding new bands. Indeed, during that time they released four hot-as-fire singles (plus pretty spectacular covers of Frank Ocean’s “Thinkin Bout You” and Jungle’s Continue…

  11. TK038: Daniel Wilson Killed Ya b/w Please Dream Again

    Good music sometimes defies description – but that doesn’t necessarily mean we can’t compare it to anything else. In fact, sometimes the problem is that a song calls to mind too many things at once – making it hard to cleanly categorize it. The initial output of Ypsilanti, Michigan songwriter Daniel Wilson is like that. Continue…
