The new music video for song "Light" shows Georgia-born, Brooklyn-based artist Hite stripping off and dancing in the waves, by herself and for herself.  Referred to as a "modern southern gothic lament through baroque pop and Appalachian folk," "Light" is part of Hite/Julia Easterlin's debut album Light Of A Strange Day, due for release in March. According to Easterlin: The song ‘Light’ bubbled up all at once as a stream of consciousness. I decided to keep all the lyrics and melody exactly as they came out the first time, and...
On an historic night in April 1939, Marian Anderson, one of the most revered singers of the twentieth century, captured an audience of more than 75,000 with her vibrant voice as it resounded across the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. But just a few weeks prior to the event that opened doors for many musicians to come, the same captivating star was denied permission to sing in Constitution Hall, then the largest auditorium, by the Daughters of the American Revolution — because she...
“Now is really the time for people to speak their mind,” says Corin Tucker of Sleater-Kinney. “It’s a shocking difference to go from the Obama administration to the Trump administration. I hope younger musicians are inspired to get involved with politics.” At the onset of every wave of political strife, musicians worldwide have responded. The waves of punk music, particularly those of bands like Bikini Kill, Bratmobile, Le Tigre, and Sleater-Kinney, have always responded to the infractions of civil liberties that politicians can create. The early...
  In a 2016 edition of American Psychologist, an article titled “Barriers to Women Engaging in Collective Action” was published by Helena R. M. Radke and Matthew J. Hornsey of The University of Queensland and Fiona Kate Barlow of Griffith University. In the piece, they discuss the concept of internalized sexism: “The fact that some women internalize sexism presents a problem, as it is substantially more difficult to identify and confront prejudice when the perpetrator is themselves a member of the group facing discrimination.” The concept of...
Holy Jimmy Junior! The Bob's Burgers Music Album comes out May 12th and it is chock-full of our favorite indie darlings, such as St. Vincent and The National (who appear 3 times!), along with appearances by Aziz Ansari and Paul Rudd. I bet Tina is writing some erotic fan fiction about the line-up already. Of course, these stars are just a fraction of the delectable album which will feature 112 songs of varying lengths, many sung by our animated family; the Belchers.  Oh, and remember when albums had secret tracks? According...
  Princess Nokia performed three songs at a charity fashion show for Cambridge University earlier this week after experiencing an act of sexism. The New York born and raised rapper has been building a career for herself as an artist and as an ambassador for empowering young women of color in New York City. Her recent hit album, 1992, released in 2016 has made her a coveted act for festivals and the like.  As Cambridge Universty's forum for women and non-binary people of color reports, the singer "is...
Emily Bell channels Kali, the Hindu goddess of destruction, in her new album. She evokes rising up and taking names in her new video "Can't Talk Back," directed by Bryan Poyser. The video features all-female tackle football team the Austin Raiders taking over a male football game to show these guys a thing or two about talking back (catch Boyhood actor Bill Wise as the coach) as Emily sings, "I'm the tremor of your earthquake/the sugar in you milkshake."   Emily was awarded Best New Artist by the Austin...
Time of Nick The Strokes’ Nick Valensi Steps Up 
to the Mic With His New Band CRX Nick Valensi has been the Strokes’ resident shredder for almost 20 years, but until recently, he’d never fronted a band himself. As all the other members of the Strokes embarked on various side projects and solo albums, Valensi remained silent. But that all changed this fall with the release of New Skin, the Josh Homme–produced debut album by his new band CRX. “Being on stage and going on tour and...

The 59th Annual Grammy Awards took place last night in 2017's dystopian America, and while there were plenty of deserving (and less-deserving) winners, there was one clear loser: President Agent Orange — I mean, Trump. 1. James Corden’s not-totally-cringe-inducing opening monologue rap called out Trump and called for unity with the lines "With President Trump we don't know what comes next / We sit here tonight, don't matter our race, where we were born or color of face / using this art, remember forever, we can...
