According to Merrill Garbus, the singer behind tUnE-yArDs, "Real Thing" was surprisingly the one song on her latest album Nikki Nack she didn't want made into a video, saying, "It has too many images of its own in the lyrics, and could mean so many different things for different listeners," she wrote. "I love leaving room for audiences to paint their own mental pictures. What changed my mind is wanting so much for this particular song to be heard by more people." Warning: don't watch this amazingly surreal and cartoonish, freaky music video if you're afraid of mannequin-people. Read More
All around badass music icon, Kim Gordon, has not let Sonic Youth’s break-up slow her down.

The cover art is shown above and the release date is scheduled for February 24, 2015 through Harper Collins imprint Dey Street Books. Read More
We love Lizzo, and her new web series, “Big GRRL Small World” just proves how hilarious she is. The whole concept of the first episode asking the hard questions at the Minnesota State Fair, with ridiculous results. She goes around messing with people and even asking them for some of their food. Some of the best features are the Minnesotans who seem genuinely disinterested, confused, and mostly out of it. We can’t forget that Lizzo is also an extremely talented rapper. Maybe you’ve heard her song “Batches and Cookies,” off her 2013 album Lizzobangers. It’s my new anthem. Read More

TV on the Radio released their new single "Happy Idiot" with a trippy music video on Funny or Die to match. In the video, Paul Reubens (Pee-Wee Herman!) plays a race car driver "Racer Steven" who hasn't raced "in a long time." The heartbroken racer makes lap after lap, haunted and tormented by the images of a past lover (Karen Gillan). Karen Gillan (of Doctor Who, Selfie) is seen in different outfits, sometimes cheering, sometimes baking a cake, all on the sidelines of the race. Meanwhile, the band stands by, singing along "Since you left me babe/ it's been a long way down. Read More
Hurray for the Riff Raff, fronted by Alynda Lee Segarra, performed at Willie Mae's Rock Camp for Girls on August 1st in New York City, inspiring and getting girls of all ages to get up, clap, and find every way possible to groove. The five-piece band rocked it out with guitars, fiddles, drums, a bass, a keyboard, and most importantly: soul. Willie Mae's camp is a non-profit program that educates and mentors girls and women about music, volunteerism, and activities that cultivate self-respect, leadership, creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration.

With her adorable candied vocals that are sweet and smooth like honey, Imani Coppola of Little Jackie sweeps you off your feet on dangerously catchy tunes that are sugary pop, but loaded with substance. She, along with multi-instrumentalist Adam Pallin, are back as Little Jackie for their third album, Queen of Prospect Park, and it’s certain to brighten up dreary autumn days and wintry nights with summery beats. Queen of Prospect Park glows as soon as you hit play and you won’t be able to help but sway your hips from beginning to end (seriously, we dare you to stay still). Read More
Sleater–Kinney had a twelve-year career with seven epic albums; they exuded raw, riot grrrl energy everywhere they toured. The band received high praise from Rolling Stone for “pushing rock to the boiling point,” and Rob Sheffield called them, “America’s best punk band. EVER.” Not counting their 2013 reunion (joining Pearl Jam to cover Neil Young), it has been eight years since fans have had pure Sleater-Kinney goodness. However, the people at Sub Pop Records are giving fans a real gift. On Oct. Read More
The History of Apple Pie offers their refreshing take on grunge-inspired pop-rock on their new album Feel Something, and it's a welcome throwback. The British band helmed by singer Stephanie Min and guitarist Jerome Watson invites comparisons to '90s staples like The Breeders and Luscious Jackson, but without the feel of a retread. Like the titular dessert, this music is perfect for sweater weather. Feel Something is The History of Apple Pie's second album, and though the band has only existed for three years, there's a clear cohesion to their point of view. Read More
Iowa City's Pieta Brown doesn't just play rooms. She fills each space with stories and makes it her own. The singer-songwriter and musician proved her ability to take over a studio in a short period of time and turn out extraordinary music in her Daytrotter session in 2008, a remarkable collection of songs. Brown's new record, Paradise Outlaw, similarly showcases her skill as a performer, and it's exciting to hear such quiet mastery of a genre. Recorded over just four days in Justin Vernon (Bon Iver)'s April Base studio, Paradise Outlaw feels anything but rushed. Read More
