    Last night, Patti Smith, Joan Baez, Cat Power, Flea, Michael Stipe and more took to the stage at Carnegie Hall in New York to call for everyone to help fight climate change. The event was put on by Pathway to Paris, a non-profit organization focused on raising awareness of establishing a legally binding global climate agreement — the Paris Agreement. Pathway To Paris was founded in September 2014 by Patti Smith’s daughter, composer and instrumentalist Jesse Paris Smith, and cellist and composer Rebecca Foon. "Climate change...
For three nights only, a feminist wet dream came true: Bikini Kill reunited, performed “For Tammy Rae,” and we all died happy. You remember the first time you heard Bikini Kill? Your soul lifted out of your body and you became a Feminist, capital F. For many, Bikini Kill is reminiscent of discovering your own feminism, punk, and “counter-culture” scene. Pitchfork reports that on November 4, 2017, at The Kitchen in NYC, Bikini Kill reunited temporarily to help promote the 33 1/3 book focusing on the...
  The last person I expected to give me relationship advice was the Lolita-glamorizing, cultural-appropriating Lana Del Rey. But as I sobbed while sitting on a bench outside Borough Hall in Brooklyn, she sang into my ears and explained exactly why I would never have a future with the person I loved, whose clinical depression had escalated to the point where he could hardly acknowledge my presence:  “It hurts to love you, but I still love you/ It's just the way I feel/ And I'd be lying...
  Infidelity has existed for as long as relationships have. However, the open practicing of #thotlife or embracing hoe culture are fairly new phenomenons that are helped along by our society’s warped relationship with social media. These songs are great when you're not on the receiving end of the infedelity. Certainly not the most girl empowerment playlist, but hey, we're all bad feminists sometimes. 1. Destiny’s Child — “With Me (Part I)" (1998) "Do you ever wonder when he, don't come homeWho he goes to seeOr why in the middle...
  Karin Dreijer, half of the musical duo The Knife, released a solo project under the moniker Fever Ray in 2009. Finally, after 8 years, she has returned with a follow-up, Plunge, on Mute Records. It's as intense and innovative as its scathingly cool predecessor was. Dreijer has the ability to elevate electronica by creating sounds that are not necessarily recognizable as the usual programed synths, sequencers and drum machines. Her vocals have a gymnastic quality that leap and stretch to fit the song against drum rhythms...
Lupa J is a producer, singer-songwriter and violinist from Sydney, Australia who has cultivated a dedicated following for her sophisticated electronic music since she burst onto the scene at age 15 in 2014. In her short career so far, she has turned heads internationally and played support for some of the biggest names in the game, like Grimes and Tegan and Sara. Her latest track, "Moth," explores the way young women are drawn to damaging images of perfection in the media. "Moth" is a haunting song...
Brazilian-Dominican artist Jarina De Marco is a cult goddess with attitude in the lilac-tinged video for her latest song "STFU." This pop-culture paradise is a follow up to her her singles “Release the Hounds,” made in support of the people of Standing Rock’s movement, and “Tigre,” from the Broad City soundtrack. In the video, directed by Madelyn Deutch and produced by Tiziano Tucci, De Marco presides over the "Church of No Fucks Given" as she liberates her followers and turns prayer into party. The video channels '90s nostalgia with...

When Cardi B and Beyoncé first met, Cardi B memorialized the event with an Instagram post of the two artists and the caption “BITCH I met Beyoncé Bitch !!!!!!!!!!!!” I think I can speak for all of us when I say that, number one, Cardi is all of us in the prescence of Queen B, and number two, please collaborate you beautiful angels. And now it looks like our dreams might be coming true. Cardi B’s engineer, Michael Ashby, posted a photo to his Instagram story that sparked...
  Mozart had a sister. She was just as good—if not better—than her legend of a brother. But not a lot of people know this. I didn’t know this until I spoke with feminist flautist Leanne Friedman. We met at Sundaes and Cones, a small ice cream shop in the East Village—not too far from the NYU campus, where she’s finishing up her double degree (BA in Flute Performance, MA in Music Education). She got a double-scoop cup with Lavender and Green Tea ice cream. The 21 year-old...
