Madonna: the artist, the icon, the inspiration. Whether she's dressed in a power suit, a wedding dress, or something in between, Madonna consistently proves that authenticity is the best policy. In fact, it's the only policy. If you're in need of a push towards originality and self-love, let these Madonna quotes do the talking.  When I'm hungry, I eat. When I'm thirsty, I drink. When I feel like saying something, I say it. Be strong, believe in freedom and in God, love yourself, understand your sexuality, have...
It’s a 12-hour drive from Texas to Alabama, but when you take the time to sit with (in?) football, etc.'s new album Corner, it shares so much of the hazy, summer sentiment of Katie Crutchfield’s Ivy Tripp. That kind of unhurried, clear vision of a record is surprising, considering it was actually produced in five days with minimal overdubs. But yet, holed up in J Robbins’ Magpie Cage in Baltimore, Texan trio football, etc. have channeled some of that Waxahatchee Lakeside shimmer into this album. Indeed,...
After taking a break to embrace motherhood and domesticity, Nikka Costa is back releasing a new song available for download today on iTunes, ”Arms Around You.” This new track was co-written with Justin Parker, who is best known for his work with artists such as Lana Del Rey, Rihanna, and Sia. It’s just a sample from her new kickin’ album Nikka & Strings, Underneath and In Between (Metropolis Recordings), which will be released June 2nd. Recorded in a single day with minimal overdubbing, Nikka & Strings, Underneath...
When she was just 17, Alynda Segarra ran away from her home in the Bronx. Since then, she’s been a rambler, frequently on the road playing her unique combination of folk, Americana, and roots rock. Now 30, Segarra is reckoning with where she came from on The Navigator, the newest full-length album from her band Hurray For The Riff Raff. It tells the story of a character named Navita Milagros Negrón, a teen girl from the streets adrift in a rapidly gentrifying city. Segarra spoke...
“There’s so many ants happening right now. I’m actually okay, they’re fine. Are you okay?” This nonchalant thoughtfulness is Mary Lambert in her truest form. She told me about her new crowdfunded album BOLD the day it was released over coffee - featuring ants - which she was charmingly unbothered by. Of all the things to adore about Lambert’s new album, what the musician loves most is that she produced half of it herself. “I feel like I’ve always had straight white cis male producers and crafters helping...
As a fan of Paramore for roughly ten years, I was ecstatic upon finding out the news that they were releasing a new album. The album’s first single, "Hard Times," was practically all I was listening to for days - the catchy melody getting stuck in my head. The album, After Laughter, released on May 12th is wildly different from anything the band has done previously. The sound leans more '80s synth-pop than the pop-punk tunes Paramore became known for. A running theme in this album, the...

Rachel Trachtenburg’s EP with her new band Wooing, DayDream Time Machine, will be the psychedelic soundtrack to your summer. The dreamy tracks and melodic beats were inspired by different muses, including the documentary Blackfish and an LSD documentary from the 1960s. Before joining Wooing, Rachel was a member of The Prettiots, Supercute and The Trachtenburg Family Slideshow players. Photo via Rachel Trachtenburg Rachel had this to say about the EP: “DayDream Time Machine is true to its name. The EP is for sure a psychedelic ride. Each song is it's own journey...
Blondie is back with the music video for their single 'Long Time,' with an album Pollinator to follow on May 5. The track is a collab between Debbie Harry and Dev Hynes (aka Blood Orange), and the video is set in New York and features Debbie Harry driving a yellow cab Fast and Furious style. In celebration, we're going back into our archives to bring you this interview with Debbie Harry from way back in 2007, shortly after the release of her solo album Necessary Evil. Blondie's 1981 single,...
