Beyonce performed at the Country Music Awards Wednesday night and, like everything else she does, it was amazing. Bey teamed up with the Dixie Chicks to perform her country-inspired song "Daddy Lessons" from her revolutionary album Lemonade; and although that seems like a dream come true to a lot of music listeners, not all country fans were thrilled. When it was announced on Wednesday that Beyonce would be performing for the 50th anniversary of the CMAs, fans took to Twitter to voice their concerns. Some of...

In the upcoming documentary L7: Pretend We’re Dead (directed by Sarah Price and produced by Blue Hats Creative), feminists rockers like Joan Jett and Brody Dalle discussed the iconic grunge band. One highlight is Shirley Manson of Garbage, explaining in this clip her love for L7. “I had never seen a band before L7 that was all female fronted, all the members were female, they wrote their own material, and played their own material — I had never really come across that,” says Manson. Manson explains that L7...
Moby has returned and he’s angry as hell! Feeling this way is very understandable, considering the turbulent world we live in. Moby’s issue is that many of our systems — such as government, business, manufacturing industries, and technology — have failed the people on the planet.  Known for his ambient, electro pop sounds since the ‘90s, Moby instead draws from punk, post-punk, new wave, euphoric rave, and yelling on his new album with the Void Pacific Choir, These Systems Are Failing (MUTE Records). Yeah, there’s a lot of yelling,...
The discussion of women's bodies in politics has been more present today, in the midst of the 2016 election, than ever before. Not only are we seeing political parties bash heads over contraceptive rights and access to abortion, individuals such as Donald Trump— who made national headlines a few weeks back for saying that he’d “grab [a woman] by the pussy”— have made it clear that sexism is alive and well in the political circuit. Many have reacted to Trump’s comments, as well as running...
 “It is 7 A.M. at night.”  This, as we know, is an impossible phenomenon. This string of seemingly nonsensical words proposes a concept that is not a product of foolishness but rather of genius; they’re unhesitatingly oxymoronic, clashing willingly, knowingly, and are presented with an attention-grabbing firmness, an unwrinkled staccato, repeatedly. Miraculously, these lyrics manage to put into words how it feels to listen to Brooklyn-based artist SHIRA’s new album, Subtle Creature. Like these lyrics, which are snagged from the album’s ninth track, “I Know Your I,”...
Vulnicura (2015) Björk continues to amaze us with the release of the VR trailer for “Family” — one of the ethereal tracks from her 2015 album,Vulnicura. The virtual-reality trailer is just a short teaser, but it’s a fascinating look inside the Icelandic musician’s latest cutting-edge endeavor, composed of digital Icelandic landscape scans, glowing tendrils of color and motion capture images of Björk herself. "Family," directed by Andrew Thomas Huang, will premiere in its entirety as part of a much larger multi-media exhibit presented by Red Bull Music Academy and Phi...
  There’s nothing we love more than women who transcend the music binary and Gland, a punk trio from New Orleans, does exactly that and more. Members Kallie, Farra, Switch, and Jean make up the feminist-as-fuck punk band which released the music video for their song “Cram It” this past weekend, off their first album Neurotica. The song is an anthem for riot grrrls everywhere and you won’t be able to get the hypnotic vocals out of your head. The video, which was directed by Sarrah Danziger,...
