One of my favorite food and music sites, Turntable Kitchen, features the second Sleigh Bells' track released from their forthcoming album, Reign of Terror. Check out "Comeback Kid" released this week and get excited for Sleigh Bells in Fort Lauderdale February 11 and in Miami February 14, if you're lucky enough to have tickets .
Turntable Kitchen is the creation of a San Francisco couple that feature recipes, cooking stories, music selections, and album reviews. The most fun thing about the site is Turntable Kitchen Pairings Box, "a food and music experience delivered to your mailbox on a monthly basis." Each box is $25 a month and features vinyl tunes, a curated mixtape, dried ingredients, recipes, and tasting notes.
The New York Times said this about the site:"The blog, now with almost 40,000 monthly readers, suggests very specific
pairings: a peppy upbeat playlist (with music from Girl Talk) for fish
tacos, say, or something rustic and subdued (Iron and Wine) for roast
chicken and potatoes.'Everyone is looking for the tastemakers,' Ms. Hickey said, 'people who
can provide them with a well-curated experience.'"
Kitchen is part of a trendlette of monthly hard copy subscriptions to
old school stuff -- books, magazines, recipes, letters, and music-- much
like The Rumpus' book club and their letters in the mail.
