Indie-Rock Superstar Neko Case Invites Us Inside Her Cozy Vermont Farmhouse And Opens Up About Depression, Dogs, And Doing What She Loves   "When you’ve got a barn, you’ve got a place to skate in the winter,” says Neko Case, explaining why there’s a full-sized skateboard half-pipe in the barn on her property. It’s not actually hers — it belongs to her roommate and best friend, “Stuntman Nate” — but the half-pipe is only one of many weird, amazing artifacts scattered around her Vermont farm, where Case...
  Alex Lahey’s “Every Day’s The Weekend” will make you feel like Saturday every day. “Fuck work, you’re here/Every day’s the weekend,” she sings. And with the jobs featured in her music video, you can’t really blame her for the sentiment. The Australian singer-songwriter takes us through shitty, albeit interesting, jobs ranging from a sleepy pickle inspector to a disappointing cake decorator. The video is super adorable, and the song is definitely dance-party worthy.    This pop-rock single is an ode to wanting the weekend to last forever with someone...
It’s official! Solange will be directing the music video for SZA’s “The Weekend” off her album Ctrl! SZA confirmed with USA Today what fans had been hoping for for months. When Solange and SZA planned a hangout on social media in July, fans knew something amazing was on the way. Solange posted a video of her lip syncing to SZA’s Love Galore on Instagram, and SZA tweeted her fangirling over the video and proposing they meet up.   Now, they're going to combine their creative genius and...
After a four year hiatus, New York-based electro-pop band the Blow is back with a new album, Brand New Abyss. Today, we're excited to premiere the video for the Blow's latest single, "The Woman You Want Her To Be." “It’s been a long deep journey and we are very (very) excited to be back in the world of people and to share all these crazy sounds we’ve made. The feeling of the world around us has changed some during the time that we’ve been working, and the...
  Brooklyn’s Commodore Barry Park exploded with color, exuberance and sound as revelers lit the scene for the annual Afropunk Festival this weekend. Dubbed the “other” black experience, the gathering has detonated since its inception in 2005, attracting renowned artists and a variegated crowd of local and international revelers. Outstanding headliners such as Solange, SZA, Gary Clark Jr. and Anderson Paak are obvious attractions, but social action, from incentives that allow attendees to earn tickets by performing community service to a rigorous recycling program, has always...

If you haven’t heard of Lizzo yet, you’re welcome. The Minneapolis-based alt hip-hop artist suffuses her songs with empowering lyrics and foot-tapping beats. Her latest single, "Water Me," might be her best track yet. “Water Me," as the title hints, is all about nourishment — specifically yourself. Produced by Grammy-nominated producer Ricky Reed, energetic drums and melodious synth and bass accompany liberating lyrics: “I don't get dehydrated, I moisturize it daily / I am my inspiration, I am my inspiration." Lizzo is unapologetically celebrating herself and...
In some good news for your Friday, Bonnie Tyler will sing your drunk karaoke go-to “Total Eclipse of the Heart” during the actual solar eclipse. However, “Total Eclipse Of The Heart” is in fact longer than the total eclipse of the sun, which will last for 2 minutes and 40 seconds. (There are several versions of “Total Eclipse of the Heart,” ranging from in length from 3 minutes 49 seconds for a 2005 re-recording to 6 minutes 59 seconds for the original album version.) No worries,...
Even though Kesha’s nearly-three-year legal battle to free herself from producer Dr. Luke continues, our wildgirl is finally back in the game, and as someone who has loved basically every single song Kesha has ever put out, I’m ready for shit to get lit. I flung my limbs around mosh-pit-style to “Dancing With Tears In My Eyes” after my high school boyfriend dumped me. I cried to the “The Harold Song” on repeat when my 9-month fuckboy dumped me. I drove around blaring “Last Goodbye” as...
We stopped by the Bowery Ballroom to check out the all-star female super group Guns N' Hoses as they celebrated the 30th anniversary of Guns N' Roses' Appetite For Destruction (July 21, 1987). The group comprised of Erin Marsz (Axl Hose), Charlene Kaye (Gash), Julia Adamy (Muff McKagan), Emmy Wildwood (Lizzy Stradlin), and Gina Ilasi (Stephanie Adler) absoltuely rocked the term "Girl Power."    What is it that made you guys decided you wanted to cover Guns N' Roses in the first place? When did this obsession begin?  Erin Marsz (Axl): I wanted...
