Lorde constantly amazes us with her poetic songs and killer dance moves, but she has reached a whole new level. Lorde has traveled the world on tour, and as you can imagine, she has tried foods from all over the world. Something that must’ve stuck with her was the diversity of the onion rings during her travels, which inspired an Instagram account dedicated to reviewing onion rings. No one can be sure this account is really her, but there is a lot of evidence and...
Back in the 1960s, Lynn Castle was known as "The Lady Barber" because she was one of the first female barbers in Los Angeles. She tamed the tresses of a star-studded clientele at a salon on the Sunset Strip, all the while sporting a way cool look somewhere between Dusty Springfield and Nancy Sinatra. When Lynn wasn't cutting hair, she was cutting tracks with music industry buddies Lee Hazlewood and Jack Nitzsche, who were wowed by her deep, sultry voice and brilliant songwriting. And despite these...
Voice of Baceprot is a metal band founded by three Muslim schoolgirls in Indonesia, and these queens are fucking slaying, both onstage and in the battle for social progress.

“I’ve had a drink and ate some stuff, now I’m already bored, a couple of bros said some shit I’m choosing to ignore, I’m not okay, I want to complain,” sings Julia Shapiro in the fifth track, “Complain” of her group’s latest album. Unapologetically honest when it comes to feelings and the fact that, a lot of the time, people kind of suck, Chastity Belt has gifted us with another glimpse into the minds of twenty-something-year-old women with their latest release, I Used to Spend So...
  Miss Eaves’s “Thunder Thighs” is about to be the realest summer anthem for thick-thighed girls. The opening line, “Chub rub, the day is just heating up,” paves the way for a very honest expression of living with thick thighs in the heat and embracing it. Miss Eaves, along with women of all shapes and ages, dance in outfits that allow them to beat the heat of a New York City summer.   The single was released off Miss Eaves’s upcoming album, Feminasty, which is out August 4th....
DJ Sheila Burgel and Rob Santos bless us with HONEYBEAT: Groovy 60's Girl-Pop, a compilation of Girl Group treasures that Sheila B. describes as “refreshingly unselfconscious, emotionally open, and made of the dreamiest, sweetest, snappiest melodies that grabbed at my heart and never let go.” Twist your hips to the classic "Stand by Me," covered by Little Eva with the same charming voice that made her famous for “The Locomotion.” Feel all the feels via the hypnotically moody melody of “The Rider” by the Pussycats....
What if you could change gun violence laws with a shirt? That sounds like something from a fairy tale, but this summer, music festivals are collaborating with activists to do just that. Chicago summers are known for two things, music festivals, and gun violence; however, the Pitchfork music festival is working with two gun violence prevention organizations, Everytown Against Gun Violence, and Mothers Against Senseless Killing, to make summer more about the music and less about the violence with its recent initiative, BEATS>BULLETS. “You’re kind of...

WASI (We Are She Is) is a pop dream for woke grrrls. The queer, feminist duo creates a pop landscape that is both politically engaged and pure danceable fun in a Robyn-meets-Tegan and Sara sort of way. They (Merilou Salazar and Jessie Meehan) were recently called "a more poppish Sleater-Kinney for the next generation" by Curve magazine. Taking seriously the feelings of alienation and self-doubt that they experienced in their young lives, they center their narratives of growing up queer and celebrating the safe spaces they are actively creating. WASI explains: "The...
