Put your dick in the air – it's the phrase that has everyone talking about singer-songwriter-producer, Peaches, again.  If you're unfamiliar with Peaches, let's catch you up to speed: she is a Canadian musician notorious for raunchy lyrics including, "Fuck the pain away," and "We all want tush, if I'm wrong, impeach my bush." She also frequents headlines for her disregard towards gender norms, and like aforementioned, she's back at it for the first time since 2009. Read More
Alana Haim once told an interviewer that, “Growing up, there were a lot of girl artists like the Spice Girls, Aaliyah and Destiny’s Child. But none of them really played instruments and I would always look up to Stevie Nicks and Blondie -- they are dope female musicians.” Today, there’s tons of kick-ass groups for girls to look up to.  New music is constantly coming out and woman-fronted bands have been putting out the best of the best.

You’re kickin’ it poolside with your gal pals. All is fine and dandy until…. You get your period. What’s a girl to do? Obviously, a shirtless man will deliver menstrual cups on a silver platter. Your friend will then rap about it.  Okay, maybe not. But that’s what happens in the video for Princess Superstar’s song, “Lunette Cup (Oh No I’m Getting My Period)”. She teamed up with the company to give us the best use of the word “vajayjay” that we’ve heard in years. More info menstrual cups can be found here. Read More
If you’ve somehow managed to avoid hearing about this yet (kudos to you if you have), Miley Cyrus hosted the MTV Video Music Awards last Sunday. Everything was rainbow-colored. Kanye West said that he’d run for president in 2020. There were so many weed jokes that developing a secondhand high by simply watching the show was totally plausible. It was, truly, a sight to see. The shindig ended with Cyrus performing her new song, “Dooo It!,” and then announcing that she just dropped her new album for free. Titled Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz, it’s a sprawling 23-track record. Read More

At only 22 years old, she had a double platinum album, many awards, the beginnings of an acting career, and the respect of everyone in the music industry for her immense talent. Though she is gone, she is far from forgotten. To celebrate her legacy, here are five of her best music videos: Via AaliyahMusicVideo 1. "Rock The Boat" Sensual and smooth, this song is a perfect example of Aaliyah's vocal ability. Read More
Peaches recently teamed up with Kim Gordon on hew new song, “Close Up,” and now the electronica goddess has released a music video to match. It features all the run-of-the-mill things you'd expect to see in any standard music video: breast milk being shot into someone’s mouth, a wrestling match, pink glitter, and a former member of Sonic Youth wearing a giant fur coat. In the video, Kim Gordon plays Peaches' angry, vape-obsessed wrestling coach. Read More
Lizzy Mercier Descloux was a French artist, poet, and musician who left Paris for New York in the mid 1970's to pursue her creative interests. After settling in NYC, Mercier (with her androgynous cool looks) quickly fell in with various local luminaries and CBGB punk rock club alumni like Richard Hell and Patti Smith, to whom she was something of a muse. Lizzy soon was signed to ZE Records, whose roster included Was (Not Was), Kid Creole & The Coconuts, and Cristina (whose albums Light In The Attic Records will hopefully reissue next). Read More

I sifted through the comments so you don’t have to, and here are some of the horrible things that were said: Mayberry and fellow band mates took to Twitter to address the comments on 4Chan. Read More
