  1. Single Serving: Joanna Newsom – Sapokanikan

    It’s time to rejoice! Why? Well, because Joanna Newsom is back with a new song and accompanying video to go along with the announcement of Divers, her first album since 2010’s Have One On Me. The track, compositionally, follows in the footsteps of the more piano driven cuts from her previous record such as “Good Intentions Paving Continue…

  2. Single Serving: Beach Slang – Bad Art & Weirdo Ideas

    Music works best when it really connects with the listener. Enter Philadelphia’s Beach Slang, a band primarily concerned with finding that connection. After releasing two excellent EP’s last year, they’re readying a first full-length with a title as on the nose and Beach Slang-ish as it gets, The Things We Do To Find People Who Feel Continue…

  3. Single Serving: Long Beard – Porch

    Long Beard is the musical moniker of New Brunswick, New Jersey’s Leslie Bear. With news of her first full-length comes the single, “Porch,” a track that relies on the strength of Bear’s quiet, hypnotizing and melodic vocals which are complimented by the beautiful guitar tones that reverberate underneath. There is an airiness to the song in the Continue…

  4. Single Serving: Roadside Graves – Gospel Radio

    Roadside Graves are described as “secret New Jersey treasures” by Garden State label Don Giovanni Records – who will release their new album Acne/Ears this September. The first track from the upcoming full-length, “Gospel Radio,” recounts the divorce of frontman John Gleason’s parents and according to the singer represents a new direction for the band – who formed Continue…

  5. Single Serving: All Dogs – That Kind Of Girl

    Maryn Jones might be indie music’s hardest worker. Not only is she a member of Columbus indie-folk band Saintseneca but she recently released her debut solo album as Yowler, and her indie-pop trio All Dogs will drop their debut full-length Kicking Every Day at the end of the month. The album’s first single, “That Kind Of Girl,” Continue…

  6. Single Serving: The Velvet Teen – The Giving In

    Since the early aughts, California genre-benders The Velvet Teen have been crafting beautifully singular sounds – albeit, infrequently. Since 2002 the band have released three full-length albums and a handful of EP’s. It should also be noted that their 2004 LP Elysium remains the most important record in my life. Needless to say, when you love a band Continue…

  7. Single Serving: mewithoutYou – Red Cow

    Is it art rock, post-hardcore, indie rock or maybe punk rock? Philly eccentrics mewithoutYou have always been difficult to pin down and they seem to prefer it that way. The band is set to release their sixth LP in June and “Red Cow” continues to showcase their knack for uniquely structured, lyrically dense songwriting. And while the Continue…

  8. Single Serving: Hop Along – Waitress

    If you were to ask me about the albums of the current decade that mean the most to me, Get Disowned, the 2012 album from Philly’s Hop Along, would surely make that list. The LP is full of strange sounds and idiosyncratic songwriting and I continue to hear new and wonderful things with each listen. Continue…

  9. Single Serving: Anna B Savage – 1

    “It’s been said that I am strong and they’re not entirely wrong” singer-songwriter Anna B Savage admits about halfway through her powerful single ‘1.’ And strong is definitely the word I would use to describe the London musician’s sound. The track moves from finger plucked delicate guitar playing and intimate lyrics before opening up into Continue…

  10. Single Serving: The Tallest Man On Earth – Sagres

    Kristian Matsson is back! The Swedish troubadour who records as The Tallest Man On Earth has unleashed the first single from his upcoming fourth album Dark Bird Is Home. “Sagres” is reminiscent of the classic, folk influenced sound we’ve come to expect from him, but showcases a much broader musical palate than with previous efforts. Continue…

  11. Single Serving: The Weather Station – Way It Is, Way It Could Be

    The Weather Station is the musical endeavor of Toronto based singer/songwriter Tamara Lindeman and “Way It Is, Way It Could Be” is the opening track from her forthcoming third album, Loyalty. The song evokes the most hushed work of fellow folkie and countrywoman Joni Mitchell as Lindeman’s voice floats over ebbs and flows of instrumentation. Continue…
