It seems fitting that Jessica Weiss began penning songs as soundtracks to student films since the Brighton-based lead singer and songwriter’s lyrics are rife with vivid imagery, intense drama, and compelling storylines. Fellow art student Guitarist Daniel Falvey met Weiss after an exhibition of her work inspired him, and drummer Michael Miles was later brought in to handle percussion. Together shoegaze trio Fear of Men creates a bittersweet sound by blending ... Read More
Model View Culture focuses tech, culture, and diversity media with online issues published every three weeks, and they rule. Their recent post "Shit Men Say to Women Founders" was so darn awesome, we're reblogging it here:  1. “Good luck with your project.” It's not a fucking project. It's a CORPORATION. It's an OFFICIAL, TAX-PAYING, CERTIFIED, DELAWARE-INCORPORATED business that is employing people, producing new products, ... Read More
Alice Boman's EP II should be listened to outdoors during a spring dusk, at around 7 in the evening.  Her voice, full of impossible longing, speaks the darkness of distance and the brightness of pyres burning in sunset colors. The album opens with "What," a track that features a rhythm section made up of the occasional kick and ambient scratches, plus gorgeous piano floating in a lake of white noise. "Over" is one of the highlights of the record, reminiscent ... Read More

Many creatives out there are trying to articulate the post-millennial hipster experience; from Lena Dunham’s Girls, to Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer’s Broad City, to more serious works like Benjamin Dickinson’s First Winter, or Tim Heidecker’s The Comedy. Then there’s City Baby, a recent film directed by David F. Morgan, which he also co-wrote with its star Cora Benesh. Despite the criticism (specifically from Bitch Magazine) of the ... Read More

The past few years have seen an explosion of retro-leaning, surf-y bands with style for days. But our favorites, bar none, are the Dum Dum Girls. Led by frontwoman Dee Dee Penny, the band is known for its updated girl-group sound and goth-princess stagewear. Think the Shangri-Las (if they smoked a lot more weed) or the Ronettes (if they traded their beehives for black leather jackets.) Their third LP Too True finds the band departing from its ’60s ...

When Simon Raymonde’s band Cocteau Twins split in 1997, he went on to found and record for his own label, Bella Union. His latest musical incarnation, with help from vocalist Stephanie Dosen, is Snowbird, and its sound picks up right where the Cocteau Twins left off more than a decade ago. Snowbird’s Moon is piano-based, and the lyrics evoke images of moonlit, frosty forests. Dosen’s vocals occasionally recall Raymonde’s other leading lady Elizabeth ... Read More
