  1. Turntable Kitchen’s Summer Anticipation Mix



    We’re pretty big fans of Summertime and all the great things it brings along with it such as warmer weather, Summer music festivals, Summer fruit, days at the beach, and so on. Sure, the season doesn’t officially begin for nearly a month (June 21st for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere), but that doesn’t mean we’re not already getting excited.

    The mix features a host of great new jams for your enjoyment by artists both old and new including a number of our favorite artists. There’s also new jams from two artists we’ve previously featured in our Pairings Box subscription service: Mikal Cronin and Oscar Key Sung. We hope you enjoy our new mix in anticipation of Summer!

  2. Turntable Kitchen :: June 2012 Mix


    I prepared this month’s mix with the specific goal of providing myself with a little traveling music for our vacation. In other words, these tracks are the ones I’ve been meaning to spend a little more time with. And after all, there are a lot of great tracks here worth spending some time with. POP-ETC’s new album represents both a change in name and a change in style for the band formerly known as The Morning Benders, but it doesn’t reflect a change in the quality we’ve come expect from the boys. Cat Power’s “Ruin” is arguably one of the top tracks she’s released to date (not “the best” mind you, but I’d rank it high on the list). Frank Ocean’s “Pyramids” is irresistibly sexy and smooth. Exray’s debut record still has my attention. And what I’ve heard from the Ty Segall Band had left me electrified. Meanwhile we’ve got a collection of straight jams from relative new comers including Joey Bada$$, Tiger Waves, Moons, Manor, Kitty Pryde, Electric Guest, Brothers Hand Mirror (the lead vocalist on the track might sound familiar to Pairings Box subscribers), The Coasts, Alper Atrek, and more. Enjoy!
