    Today, multi-media recording artist and producer Grimes released the official video for "Venus Fly," from her acclaimed 2016 album Art Angels, with Janelle Monae. The video comes as the latest in a series of incredible, tonally diverse performances from Monae, including major roles in the Oscar-nominated films Moonlight and Hidden Figures, her latest album The Electric Lady, and an inspiring speech with the mothers of the Black Lives Matter movement at the Women's March on Washington. Along with making the music in the video, Grimes also wrote...
Pop star Janelle Monáe is at once retro and futuristic, disarmingly down-to-earth and freakishly abstract. Here, she reveals the strategy behind her trendsetting look, the origins of her “divinely inspired” alter ego, and what it’s like to hang out with the president                                                By Eliza C. ThompsonJanelle Monáe may have been born to sing, dance, and write some of the most creative pop albums...
Kesha’s legal battle to free herself from a contract that requires her to work with her alleged rapist, Dr. Luke, has been going on for more than two years — and there’s still no end in sight. To catch up: In October 2014, Kesha sued Dr. Luke, saying that he had drugged and raped her as well as abused her verbally, physically and emotionally. Dr. Luke countersued for defamation and breach of contract. In February 2016, a New York judge denied Kesha’s request for an injunction...
  Since 2015's "WTF (Where They From?)" music video, Missy Elliott hasn't done much... till now! "I'm Better," Missy Elliott's new single featuring Lamb, is a stripped-down sound, different from what we've heard from her in the past. The artsy music video seems Lady Gaga-esque, with elaborate and whimsical costumes. At the beginning of the video, dancers are wearing what seem to be SWAT helmets, which is likely a reference to the police brutality issue the United States continues to face. Here's hoping this single leads up to a...
San Francisco/Paris France based singer-songwriter, Rykarda Parasol, unveils a new video from her fourth album The Color of Destruction (Interbang Records 2016). “The Loneliest Girl in the World” captures both the longing and defeat of love’s limbo and is performed entirely by Ms. Parasol herself. Keeping with the starkness of the song, Krystal Kenney used a hand-held camera to capture the honesty and sparseness.

Rape culture in our society has isn't anything new but with the rising hate speech during the presidential campaign and the election of the obviously sexist Donald Trump, it seems like our nation is complacent about the awful things being said and done to women. One artist in particular is taking on the fight against rape culture through the power of music. Laura Burhenn of The Mynabirds has announced her visual art protest titled “I Know Why I Sing” which doubles as a fundraiser for...

With a ’90s pop/rock attitude and a vintage style reminiscent of the ’50s and ’60s, the Regrettes is a teenage band made up of kids who are clearly wise beyond their years. Hailing from L.A., the foursome includes 16-year-old frontwoman Lydia Night, 19-year-old Genessa Gariano on guitar, 19-year-old Sage Nicole on bass, and 18-year-old Maxx Morando on drums. And together, they create a sound that is vulnerable while still giving zero fucks. “I grew up listening to tons of ’50s and ’60s music. Buddy Holly,...
Saara Untracht-Oakner, Glenn Van Dyke and Chase Noelle make up BOYTOY — an all-woman band of skater, surfer-chicks who play wavy rock n’ roll. BOYTOY was the brain child of Saara and Glenn who had previously been in bands that broke up. Saara went to BU, where she played with You Can Be A Wesley, and Glenn was in Brooklyn playing with Beast Make Bomb, who enjoyed prominent indie fame in 2011.The two got together back in New York and formed BOYTOY in 2014 with two...
Brochella no more--or at least one step closer to an actually co-ed Coachella. Leave it to Queen Bey to kick out the music festivals’ glass ceiling. Beyoncé will be the first female headliner at Coachella in a decade, the last one being Bjork in 2007. What's even more amazing than that? She will also be the first ever black woman to headline Coachella. Coachella’s not-so-subtle history of having an overwhelming number of male centered acts has not slipped past public attention (hence the nickname ‘Bro-chella’). According to...
