NYC-based surf band High Waisted is back with a new video, "Human Performance," for their cover of the original Parquet Courts song off of the band's Acid Tapes Volume 3. The video was written and directed by frontwoman Jessica Louise Dye. Dye has been heartbroken since the election and turned to creating when she realized that protesting just wasn't enough. Dye's video is a dreamy feminist satire of the relationship between consumer capitalism and the female body — of this idea that our bodies can be bought. Dye uses hyper-sexualized...
Unplugged:Rocker Ty Segall opens up about making real human connections in a social media-obsessed world Don’t look for Ty Segall on social media. The 29-year-old musician, known for seamlessly navigating between noise, psych, glam, and retro-pop rock, has used his Twitter account a grand total of 12 times, most recently, the day after Election Day (“I puked my guts out last night”). When I talk to him on the phone a few days later, both of us still reeling from the results, he says the thing...

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.

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...
