Last night, Adele performed "Water Under the Bridge" on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, and reminded us one more time why she is music royalty. Listening to her new album 25 on repeat is the norm for me at the moment, so seeing her perform live is an extra special cherry on top of my pumpkin pie. Between her flawless-every-time eyeliner and poignant performance style, plus lyrics that basically penetrate the soul, Adele's performance on Fallon just makes you feel all the feels. Read More
ADELE'S NEW ALBUM, 25, IS FINALLY OUT and this morning, I woke up nice ‘n’ early to pay the queen my respects and a crisp $10.99. Spoiler alert: it was BEYOND worth it.  In fact, I suggest you pause your life, open your preferred Internet browser and buy that shit right now. Read More
  Few albums have been more highly anticipated this year than electro-wizard Grimes’s Art Angels, and at her show last night in Los Angeles, she showed us the reason for the hype. The distinctive Canadian artist, née Claire Boucher, nearly brought down The Mayan Theater on Monday night, day two of Red Bull Sound Select’s #30DaysInLA festival. If you are a Grimes fan and you haven’t seen her live yet, make this the year you cross that off your bucket list. Read More
  “I’ve been having a lot of kids visit me,” says 25-year-old Mac DeMarco. “This morning, some kids came over and I was so hung over, but it’s kind of nice.” These kids are not necessarily superfans, stalking his every move and following him home to Far Rockaway, Queens. They’ve simply listened to his latest album, Another One, all the way through. After some spare, murmuring keys fade out, the Canadian singer/songwriter shares his home address with an air of mellow camaraderie. Read More
Kesha has been all but out of the spotlight since she filed a lawsuit against her former producer Dr. Luke last October accusing him of sexually abusing her. Now, unable to perform, the once-popular singer has fallen from the public eye. Hashtag campaigns like #freekesha are a testament to the loyalty of her fans, but are not enough in the face of the cold shoulder that the music industry has given her. No one will work with Kesha for fear of being sued by Sony music or Dr. Luke for interfering in an ongoing contract. Read More
"We’re a super group duh,” Childbirth proclaims to the world in their Facebook bio - and with three rocking feminists like Julia Shapiro, Bree McKenna and Stacy Peck, we are inclined to agree. Trust me, once you’ve seen Childbirth rock out in hospital gowns, you’ll be a convert. Even non-punks can appreciate their humorous song narratives. Read More
Rock noir duo Elysian Fields gears up for the release of their latest music video “Alms for Your Love," directed by Kevin Weir.  With Jennifer Charles on vocals and Oren Bloedow playing guitar, not much has changed for this band since ’95—in a good way! Their penchant for collage-like dream sequences has persevered along with their disturbed lullaby sound.   If you aren’t familiar with Elysian Fields, their sound is sensual, surreal, and a little bit spooky.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has released its list of nominees and we are stoked to see three slots with women in them this year. Chaka Khan and Janet Jackson, as well as two members of Chic (Norma Jean Wright and Luci Martin), represent for the ladies this year but only make up about 21% of the nominees. This slim margin is unfortunately pretty standard for the RRHF, who only inducted ten women/women’s groups in the past ten years. That averages out to around one winning slot out of the four to six people/groups inducted as performers into the Hall of Fame each year. Read More
Joanna Newsome, known for her unique brand of folky/electronic music,is about to go on her first North American tour in FIVE YEARS!  The tour will follow the release of her newest album Divers, out on Drag Records on October 23rd.  Two singles have already dropped from Divers ("Leaving the City" and "Sapokanikan"), leading us to believe this album will be the surrealist dream machine we were all hoping for.
