Imagine the musical offspring of a Europop dance party and an island jamboree.

Kid Sister has been around for a while, but this is her first solo album, and it's nothin' but gold.

The Swedish singer/songwriter’s follow-up gleams with maturity.

We all know that the way the criminal system deals with rape is inadequate, to say the least. But Nicholas Kristof's 'Is Rape Serious?' op-ed in The New York Times on April 29 opened my eyes to just how dismal the situation really is--and to the fact that we need to do something about it.
