hi friends! we’re excited to announce that our version of The Blue Nile’s “Hats” is being rereleased and will now be available to stream everywhere for the first time! it will be out in full 12/18 via Better Company. it’s been remixed and remastered and features additional arrangements by the wonderful San Fermin today you can hear The Downtown Lights featuring backing vocals from the great Benjamin Gibbard.

The Portland based indie pop outfit Pure Bathing Culture have covered the Blue Nile’s 1989 album Hats in its entirety. In a statement, Pure Bathing Culture’s Sarah Versprille said, “We became immediately obsessed with their world of nostalgia and longing and the way the songs were simultaneously extremely sad at times but also intensely romantic and modern. It made us feel like the music we wanted to make was validated in some way by the fact that their music had already existed in the universe.” Listen to their take on “Saturday Night,” featuring Death Cab for Cutie’s Ben Gibbard.

The album is part of Turntable Kitchen’s Sounds Delicious series, which finds artists covering their favourite albums in their entirety. (Previous entries included Ben Gibbard’s take on Teenage Fanclub’s Bandwagonesque, Jonathan Rado doing Bruce Springsteen’s Born to Run, and Mutual Benefit playing Vashti Bunyan’s Just Another Diamond Day). Pure Bathing Culture’s Hats is limited to 1,000 copies and is available exclusively through Turntable Kitchen.

Quivers make cathartic guitar pop that jangles and shimmers somewhere between 1980s Australia and 1990s America. Championing our favourite up-and-coming artists has always been the foundation of Turntable Kitchen. Over the course of more than 100 releases, we’ve released debut wax from bands like MØ, Arlo Parks, No Vacation, Gallant, Tei Shi, Cathedrals, The Record Company, Crumb, Tender, and so so many more incredible rising bands.

Rising Melbourne-based Quivers captured the attention late last year with a pair of incredibly catchy, captivating singles: “You’re Not Always On My Mind” and “When It Breaks.” Fully formed and with a knack for easy, upbeat song writing, we immediately knew they were something special. In fact, we’ve been “all in” on them since that first listen. Back in January we were honoured to release their first ever vinyl single (sold out) and now we’re proud to share their contribution to our SOUNDS DELICIOUS series.

They selected R.E.M.’s “Out of Time” for their contribution to the series, flipping the script on tracks like “Shiny Happy People” (a sprawling psychedelic vibe here); shedding off some of the jangle to reimagine classics like “Losing My Religion” and transforming the cult classic “Country Feedback” into a gorgeous and stripped down piano ballad. 

Quivers’ version of “Out of Time” is only available by subscribing to the SOUNDS DELICIOUS vinyl record club.

Quivers got to choose a ‘classic’ to cover for Turntable Kitchen’s Sounds Delicious vinyl series and selected R.E.M.’s Out of Time (1991) Album. We hope you like our re-imagining of the record and we hope Mike Mills doesn’t sue us (I had a dream he would, twice).

Chewing is the solo project of Local Natives’ Nik Ewing. He has announced a new album where he covers Dennis Wilson’s 1977 classic “Pacific Ocean Blue” in its entirety as part of Turntable Kitchen’s Sounds Delicious Series. He has shared two tracks from it: “River Song” (which features the rest of Local Natives) bandmates and “Moonshine” (which features Cults). The album was released December 21st.

Ewing had this to say about the album in a press release: “With zero hyperbole, driving across LA can take half an hour or four days. One of the more manageable times I drove across the city, it took me 37:15, the length of Pacific Ocean Blue by Dennis Wilson. Like many important first album listening experiences, the entire environment surrounding that listen burnt into my memory. It was like that sad, dark album was made specifically for that specific sad, dark drive across LA. A haunted, outcast Beach Boy who still sung simple Beach Boy lyrics like ‘I’m sorry, I miss you’ but whose weathered voice is painfully more honest without the hollow late ’70s shine from his band (who seemingly didn’t miss him that much).

The first single from Chewing’s full album tribute to Dennis Wilson’s Pacific Ocean Blue featuring Local Natives.

“I really love when artists give their own radical take on a song (Jukebox by Cat Power is criminally underrated IMO). Luckily this album isn’t as ‘sacred’ as if I covered Pet Sounds in its entirety, which allowed me a lot more liberty. I wanted to re-imagine this album in a much darker and ambient context: to flow like a lost mixtape, to sound cohesive with all the voices (and trumpet, hi Nico!) weaving in and out throughout (and obviously I couldn’t NOT have my band contribute beautiful, lush harmonies to a Beach Boy cover album).”

The 12th release in the SOUNDS DELICIOUS limited edition vinyl subscription series. Chewing featuring Local Natives, Cults, POP ETC, Evan Voytas, and Nico Segal reimagine and pay tribute to Dennis Wilson’s Pacific Ocean Blue by covering it in its entirety.
