 “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,...

You may have heard the kick-ass news about Le Tigre’s reunion, first revealed during a conversation with Perfect Pussy's Meredith Graves on a podcast with Talkhouse. Well, the band has returned, and their first new video in over ten years is a tribute to Hillary Clinton — entitled “I’m with Her.” Directed by Laura Parnes and produced by Tanya Selvaratnam (of Filmmakers for Hillary), and featuring Kathleen Hanna, Johanna Fateman, and JD Samson dancing in pantsuits and singing such choice lyrics as “Pass the wicked...
When we last left Norah Jones, she had released her fifth album, Little Broken Hearts. Her chief collaborator on that disc was Danger Mouse, producer extraordinaire and member of the bands Gnarls Barkley and Broken Bells. Little Broken Hearts found Jones moving further away from her trademark piano sound and writing mainly about the breakup of a relationship. But that was more than four years ago now. Not that Jones hasn’t stayed busy since then; she has. At the end of 2013, she and Green...
Indie-electronic band Survival Guide's song "One To One" is a haunting and emotional study of the dark side of relationships. Today, we're premiering the brand new music video from the band. It's just as foreboding as the song itself.Survival Guide features vocalist and keyboardist Emily Whitehurst, who said this particular song sparks something in her when she performs it live."This song is one of my darker, slower ones, yet somehow I get an energy from it during the live show." Whitehurst said. "It's one of...

The Icelandic musician and actress has never been one to stay inside the lines — both in terms of her art and her personal life. And in an interview with UK’s, the Evening Standard, the eclectic songbird and Grammy nominated artist shared her thoughts on sex and feminism after 23 years in the business.“I like a lot of erotic books and films but I...

Sure, plenty of us love shootin’ whiskey and consider cowboy boots suitable attire for any occasion, but life below the Mason-Dixon Line is more than truck nuts, rebel flags, and backwards legislation like HB2. Countless underground femme and queer musicians from The Bible Belt are on the front lines and redefining the sound of their homeland. Whether it’s creating an intentional space for folks of all identities to have a safe, rad...

via Facebook/St. Vincent, photo by Joshua MellinIt’s a late July evening in Seoul. On a scale of one to ten of sweaty discomfort, summer in South Korea ranks about eleven. But despite my clinging shirt and the fuzz of hair plastered to my greasy forehead, I am happy. Why? I am standing in a queue to see St. Vincent play on her Digital Witness tour. I’m a guitarist and singer. To say she is an inspiration is something of an understatement.I’m with a small group,...
