So, it's September. I've been in denial of this fact for a few weeks because a) wasn't it just 90 degrees and humid a week ago here on the east coast? and b) I'm not going back to school so it can't be fall yet, right?

The Death Valley Girls are totally on fire right now.

How's your Halloween going? Have you carved all of the pumpkins? Have you worn your "Sexy Chucky from Child's Play" costume once already so it's kind of tattered but it'll still look so great in a dimly-lit room full of tipsy people? Are your apples bobbed and your candies corned? Cool, me too!
Listen to this mix as you prep for our national day of cosplay and lighthearted faux paganism—they're the sort of moody-spooky-sexy jams that the Lost Boys would love and the Cullens wouldn't be cool enough for.
Click here for the Spotify mix, and here's the track list. Read More

When was the last time you heard some jack-off say that women don’t make music, or that chick-fronted bands pale in comparison to bands of Big, Strong Men? Well, tell those jerks to whine no more, because I have a playlist for you that will prove them all wrong.
Extremely funny Twitter lady Amber Earnest (@rare_basement, and if you don’t follow her yet I suggest you do) made a 1,000+ song Spotify playlist composed entirely of female-fronted bands, culled from suggestions given to her in the form of @replies. Read More
