Laura Marling had an early arrival to the limelight, but that hasn't hindered her in her success or development as an artist. At 27 years old, the British songstress could sit aside greats such as Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, and Leonard Cohen and effortlessly hold her own. Releasing her latest album Semper Femina during the same week as International Women's Day feels like much more than a blissful coincidence. Since then we have had it on a loop. The album, Latin for "always a woman," which...

Hair and Makeup: Paige CampbellPhotographed by Jena Cumbo Harsh Crowd is a pop-punk phenomenon with a riot grrrl heart The music world would be wise to take Harsh Crowd seriously—these high-school girls are not messing around.

NYC-based surf band High Waisted is back with a new video, 'Human Performance,' for their cover of the original Parquet Courts song off of the band's Acid Tapes Volume 3. The video was written and directed by frontwoman Jessica Louise Dye. Dye has been heartbroken since the election and turned to creating when she realized that protesting just wasn't enough. Dye's video is a dreamy feminist satire of the relationship between consumer capitalism and the female body — of this idea that our bodies can be bought. Dye uses hyper-sexualized...

The new music video for song 'Light' shows Georgia-born, Brooklyn-based artist Hite stripping off and dancing in the waves, by herself and for herself.  Referred to as a 'modern southern gothic lament through baroque pop and Appalachian folk,' 'Light' is part of Hite/Julia Easterlin's debut album Light Of A Strange Day, due for release in March. According to Easterlin: The song ‘Light’ bubbled up all at once as a stream of consciousness. I decided to keep all the lyrics and melody exactly as they came out the first time, and...

On an historic night in April 1939, Marian Anderson, one of the most revered singers of the twentieth century, captured an audience of more than 75,000 with her vibrant voice as it resounded across the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. But just a few weeks prior to the event that opened doors for many musicians to come, the same captivating star was denied permission to sing in Constitution Hall, then the largest auditorium, by the Daughters of the American Revolution — because she...

“Now is really the time for people to speak their mind,” says Corin Tucker of Sleater-Kinney. “It’s a shocking difference to go from the Obama administration to the Trump administration. I hope younger musicians are inspired to get involved with politics.” At the onset of every wave of political strife, musicians worldwide have responded. The waves of punk music, particularly those of bands like Bikini Kill, Bratmobile, Le Tigre, and Sleater-Kinney, have always responded to the infractions of civil liberties that politicians can create. The early...
