May 14, 2014 9:00 am

As a musician, Annie Clark (the artist better known as St. Vincent) has always put forth a unique blend, incorporating various styles from pop to indie rock to jazz. Now, she's coming out with an entirely different type of blend. This one involves not strings, but beans. According to Sprudge, Clark, in partnership with Intelligentsia, is getting into the coffee business with her own signature blend called "Bring Me Your Mugs

Good Morning, Here Is Some ‘Coffee’ From Our New Favorite Band Sylvan Esso

You like Feist? You like beats? You like coffee?
Mar 26, 2014 8:30 am

Amelia Meath, of Vermont folk trip Mountain Man, and producer Nick Sanborn (called Made of Oak when playing on stages) formed a side project called Sylvan Esso. Their standout single — “Coffee” — doesn’t really have much to do with Kalita or Aeropress. But who cares, it’s a pretty (and pretty interesting) mashup of styles and what we are listening to this morning.

Food writer Peter Barrett tapped pal John Medeski, the jazz keyboardist best known for his role in the soulful band Medeski, Martin and Wood, to kick off his food-meets-music video series, Barrett Cooks.

Music To Your Mouth has been one of the food/drink world's best-kept secrets for the past seven years, with the festival held exclusively on the grounds of Palmetto Bluff, South Carolina.

Bands: This is what you do when touring France
Feb 25, 2014 5:30 pm

Heather D'Angelo and Annie Hart are two-thirds of Brooklyn electro-pop trio Au Revoir Simone. They are also, apparently, the two wine-loving members of the band as we find them in this video backstage after their recent concert in Roubaix, France talking about the wines on their tour rider.

Big Gigantic Eats Brussels Sprouts, Skips The Kangaroo

But Boulder's electro-jazz duo prefers pizza. Lots.
Feb 18, 2014 3:00 pm

My first call to Jeremy Salken of Boulder, CO electro-funk band Big Gigantic ended in phone tag while I listened to his outgoing voicemail message, a full minute of confused grandpa assuring you it's all going to be okay. Then he laughed at me for listening to the whole thing. Then we dove right into the most specific request I've ever heard on a tour rider.

Andrew Carmellini’s Playlist At The Public Is As Eclectic As The Cooking

In a first, Scottish band combines music, Scotch
