Ever since Taylor Swift entered the music industry, there has been a running joke in the media about her being a serial dater, emotional and, of course, if a boy breaks up with her, she will write a song about it, dammit.
In her new video for “Blank Space,” directed by Joseph Kahn, Swift appropriates the persona created by the media and personifies her lyrics, “Darling, I’m a nightmare/dressed like a ... Read More
Over the summer, Cherry Glazerr played a show at Baby’s All Right and I fell in love with them. The band looked young but I didn’t think anything of it until I spoke to lead, Clementine Creevy after the show, and learned they were still in high school! I was in awe and it made me love the band even more. Creevy is only seventeen, drummer Hannah Uribe, seventeen, and bassist Sean Redman is twenty-three. Creevy admitted, “We aren’t going to ...

The internet exploded this am with the news that on Jan. 20, 2015 beloved punk trio Sleater-Kinney will be releasing a new album, entitled No Cities To Love via Sub Pop Records.
The intoxicatingly powerful band is made up of Carrie Brownstein (former BUST cover girl) on guitar and vocals, Corin Tucker also on guitar and vocals, and Janet Weiss on the drums. The band formed in 1994 in Olympia, WA, and put out seven albums before going on a hiatus in ... 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 ... Read More

Lykke Li is back with a new album, and the sound is a bit unexpected. If you’re familiar with Lykke’s previous work, you know her tracks are dotted with synthesizers and 808s, resulting in a sound that feels upbeat, despite it's heavy lyrics. The new album takes a different approach, giving a very personal look into Lykke’s recent experiences. She claims that each track on the album will be a power ballad-- you know, the weep-on-your-floor, ... Read More

The hyped up new Katy Perry Album Prism dropped today following an IHEARTRADIO concert that streamed live on Yahoo last night. The pop star's previous record had five number 1 hits. No matter what you think of Prism, you can’t deny that Katy Perry is definitely doing something right.
At first listen, I’m not enamored with Prism. The tracks and the production on Prism are so similar that it is hard to differentiate between the songs. ... Read More

Okay, to suggest that Brooklyn band Sharkmuffin has their sights on total world domination may be a stretch. However, their recently released EP, She-Gods of the Champagne Valley, IS the perfect summertime album for girls who dreamed of being Tura Santana when they were little. And whether they're dedicating a single to Pussy Riot, or playing at feminist art houses (hauses?) guitarist Tarra Thiessen and bassist Natalie Kirch have developed a sound that’s raw ... Read More

I’m stoked to say that even after a long break, indie-pop icons Tegan and Sara have still got it—as demonstrated one Thursday night in January when the Canadian sibling duo packed the basement venue at The Standard in the East Village. The sisters laid down old favorites as well as new tracks off their first album since 2009’s Sainthood. Both women took the chance between songs to get personal with the crowd, sharing the inspirations behind their ... Read More
