TK021: Salt Cathedral – Take Me To The Sea b/w Move Along

June 3rd, 2013 Salt Cathedral - Take Me To The Sea limited edition vinyl 7" single b/w Move Along

Built less than five miles from the archaeological remains of one of the earliest human settlements in North America, the immense Zipaquirá Cathedral in Colombia is a one-of-a-kind, full sensory experience. What makes this particular cathedral so interesting is that it is chiseled out of a former salt mine, dug 200 meters underground directly into […]

TK020: KHUSHI – Magpie / When You Start & You Say

May 2nd, 2013

I never cease to be amazed by what some of the most truly talented solo musicians are capable of. Case in point, you’d never believe that the three tracks on this month’s single, which features London-based Kalim ‘Khushi‘ Patel, are the work of a solo musician. After all, each cut could be described as cinematic, […]

TK019: Port Isla – Sinking Ship / Adventurers & Moment Of Trouble

April 4th, 2013

If you haven’t already, I think it’s about time you get acquainted with this month’s featured Pairings Box artist Port Isla. After all, the quickly rising Norwich, England four-piece indie folk band has already been featured in over 30 music blogs; promoted by the BBC; their debut single (this month’s a-side “Sinking Ship”) ranked highly […]

TKR01: Turtle Giant – All Hidden Places EP

April 1st, 2013

Last year I called Turtle Giant’s All Hidden Places EP “one of the best releases I’ve heard this year of any length.” Now that 2012 is well over, I’m happy to say that I still believe All Hidden Places EP was one of the year’s best releases. As an avid vinyl collector, it felt like […]

TK018: GEMS – All I Ever / Never Age 7″

March 5th, 2013

It’s not uncommon for professional critics and music bloggers alike, myself included, to start a review by pointing out where the band’s from. I suppose (although I’ll admit to having thought about it less than I should) that we’re implying that the music is informed by the city where it was born. In fact, I […]

TK017: The Bones of J.R. Jones – Shine On Me / Dreams To Tell (Demo)

February 4th, 2013

The term gets thrown around a lot, but the music Jonathon Linaberry records as The Bones of J.R. Jones truly sounds “timeless” to my ears. In some part, that’s a result of the fact that his music isn’t inspired specifically by the contemporary music scene. For example, while you’ll find plenty of evidence of a […]

TK016: MØ – Pilgrim & Maiden 7″

January 2nd, 2013

It’s incredibly easy to imagine Copenhagen-based chanteuse MØ as the breakout artist of 2013. After all, with little more than a pair of singles she’s already set the table with a successful 2012. Her performances during New York’s CMJ Festival last October were widely hailed as triumphant and stunning. In fact, the buzz generated her […]

TK015: Seamonster – Neighbors 7″

December 5th, 2012

The music of Virginia Beach’s Seamonster (a.k.a. Adrian Todd Webb) has long been a favorite in our home. Although it’d be a mistake to over-generalize his style, I think it is fair to say that, by and large, Webb is known for recording tunes that are crisp, thoughtful, and exude a tender warmth. It’s also […]

TK014: TRAILS AND WAYS – Nunca / Sure Thing (Miguel Cover)

November 2nd, 2012

I’ve been digging the grooves of Oakland-based TRAILS AND WAYS since I first heard their jam “Nunca” this past summer. Indeed, after hearing just a pair of songs by the band I knew I wanted to feature them in an upcoming Pairings Box. Thus, I’m proud to announce that they are our featured artist for […]
