  1. Single Serving: The Walkmen – Heaven

    It was 2002 when I first saw the video for “Wake Up” from the debut album by The Walkmen titled Everyone Who Pretended to Like Me Is Gone. I was watching my most recent VHS recording of the MTV2 show 120 Minutes, when on came a promo featuring a group of smartly dressed lads playing Continue…

  2. Travel Guide: Sicily

    The Sicilian sun is very hot. Or, perhaps it is the combination of the sun and the dry winds that blow in from Africa. Sicily is located at the tip of Italy’s ‘boot’ and parts of it are actually geographically closer to Tunisia than Rome. I knew this before I went there, but only when Continue…

  4. Product Review :: Thinksound ts02 headphones with mic

    Ever since we featured the Westone 3 earbuds awhile back on the site, I frequently receive comments noting that although the Westone 3′s sound like a great set of earbuds, they also carry a high price tag to accompany their high quality. Understandably, many readers aren’t interested in purchasing earbuds at that price point. But Continue…

  5. Turntable Kitchen’s Top Ten Reasons To Buy a Turntable

    You’ve probably noticed that we like vinyl records in our home.  For example, at the end of many of my posts, I gently nudge our readers towards Insound to buy our featured albums on vinyl instead of digitally from iTunes.  Beyond that, we did name our site Turntable Kitchen.  Friends who haven’t started collecting records Continue…

  6. Colombia: It Might Not Be What You’ve Heard

    Some of you may know that I recently took a 10 day trip to Colombia, a country in Northern South America, which is bordered by Venezuela, Ecuador, Brazil and Peru. It was a last minute decision, to be honest. After going back and forth about whether or not we’d even have enough vacation time to go Continue…

  7. Xocolatl de David: A Brilliant Chocolate Discovery

    There are few things I love more than chocolate. And most of them do not include food. So there you go. In the early days of our relationship, Matt made a habit of stopping by Fog City News, a fantastic little shop in downtown San Francisco that curates and sells some amazing chocolate bars. He’d Continue…

  8. Live Gig: Surfer Blood – Live at Amoeba Records

    It feels like forever ago, but back in April of this year Surfer Blood stopped by Amoeba Records in San Francisco and played a surprisingly full set rocking one of the world’s greatest record stores like few other artists have. Well, thanks to a Heart Is a Spade, I just discovered that they have released Continue…

    New Orleans City Guide

    Well hello there, friends. I’ve missed you! Summer has come and gone but suddenly REAL summer has arrived. The Indian Summer we here in San Francisco have all been waiting for. Last week, I spent an amazing weekend with girlfriends in New Orleans, where I ate, ate, and ate (and didn’t sleep much). I haven’t Continue…
