  1. TK066: Goon – Goon EP

    From full-capacity showcases at SXSW to opening spots on tour with Grandaddy and Dilly Dally, Los Angeles-based lo-fi rockers Goon have been on fire recently. And it’s easy to see why everyone is pointing to them as a band to watch. Self described as “soul searching, planet hopping, comfort cultivating good time music” with songs Continue…

    We're excited to announce Goon as the featured artist in our latest Pairings Box.


  2. TK065: Crumb – Crumb EP

    This month we’re excited to introduce you to one of the most exciting new music discoveries we’ve stumbled upon in several months: Boston-based quartet Crumb. Sparkling and cerebral, this is jazz-soaked psych at its finest. Or is it psychedelic jazz at its finest? Either way, you get the point. They’ve been tagged as one of Continue…

  3. TK064: BATTS – BATTS EP

    This month we’re excited to spotlight the dreamy, trip hop vibes of Melbourne-based indie pop artist BATTS. This is an artist you absolutely need to hear. It’s the project of songwriter and vocalist Tanya Batt with production from England based producer Ficci. Their jams have received comparisons to Lapsley, The xx and London Grammar (who Continue…

  4. TK063: Please, Please, Please – A Tribute To The Smiths

    We’re excited to reveal that we’re doing something a little different this month and it ties in nicely with our latest project. As you may have heard, we recently launched a new subscription service we call Sounds Delicious. Basically, every month we send members a new full-length vinyl record featuring one of our favorite artists Continue…

  5. TK062: Oyinda – Oyinda EP

    This month’s vinyl is a particularly special release. Indeed, we’re very, very proud to feature four beautiful cuts from Nigerian-born, New York City-based producer/vocalist Oyinda – for the first time ever on vinyl. If you’re not already familiar with her, get ready to be very impressed. Gradually building a name for herself on the strength Continue…

  6. TK061: Sloucher – Sloucher EP

    Swoon Records’ signees Sloucher have been one of our favorite discoveries since moving up to the Pacific Northwest. With a vibe that calls to mind folks like Real Estate, Heatmiser and Elliott Smith, it’s hard not to find something to like on their debut. Their (admittedly modest) discography is best described as chill, melodic and Continue…

  7. TK060: Sur Back – Kitsch EP

    It was love at first sight, or, I should say, love at first listen. Caroline Sans, a.k.a. Sur Back, makes music that is at once both strikingly familiar and engagingly foreign. It’s like hearing an exciting and unexpected new twist on a melody you already hold very dear. As a result, her music is easy Continue…

  8. TK059: Lucius – What We Have (To Change) EP

    It’s hard to imagine our featured artist this month needs much in the way of an introduction. Brooklyn-based Lucius, founded by Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig, have been critically acclaimed since their debut album Wildewoman dropped in 2013. They’ve been praised by The New York Times, NPR, Pitchfork, The Guardian, Rolling Stone, and pretty much Continue…

  9. TK058: Topless – So Below EP

    If you’ve ever spent more than twenty minutes seriously hunting for the perfect song to soundtrack a special occasion, your Tuesday night dinner, a backyard barbecue, or just for boozing it up with friends – then you’re our type of people. After all, some jams are perfect for getting cozy with your significant other while Continue…

  10. TK057: Baby Dayliner x Fusilier EP

    My CD collection once numbered more than 1000 discs. But over time, especially as digital music became more pervasive, I lost my appetite for broken jewel cases and flimsy, scratch-prone discs. Today my CD collection numbers well below 100 total. For that matter, I don’t own a CD player. I feel little nostalgia for the Continue…

  11. TK056: Hot Flash Heat Wave – Hesitation EP

    My friend Peter knows a thing or two about good music. He’s the NightLife Program Specialist for California Academy of Sciences (i.e. he’s the guy who booked bands like Hundred Waters, TOPS, Best Coast, etc. in a science museum/aquarium). He’s one half of the brains behind MEGABLAAG (i.e. SXSW’s meeting of the music blog minds). Continue…
