Clea DuVall is trailblazing queer Christmas rom-coms with Happiest Season (out on Hulu November 25), a coming out story that blends traditional home-for-the-holidays romance with the emotional depth of identity and self-acceptance. DuVall proves that both can exist, breaking away from a heteronormative love story while tapping into the season's cliché sappiness. When Harper (Mackenzie Davis) invites her girlfriend Abby (Kristen Stewart) home for the holidays, she fails to mention one thing - that her family thinks Harper is straight and that Abby is her “orphan...
As Greta Thunberg sits in front of the Swedish parliament with her now-iconic sign reading “School Strike for the Climate,” an older woman approaches her. The woman isn't coming to encourage the young activist.  Instead, she chides Thunberg for striking from school and says, “If you get an education. you can affect the future. That's what you're supposed to do, you young people.” Now, almost two years after her first school strike, Thunberg is tired of hearing these words. The Hulu original documentary I Am Greta, ...
Nashville-based Bully returned to rural Minnesota to record their “happy-go-lucky/fuck-it-all” third studio album. Frontperson Alicia Bognanno teamed up with Grammy Award-winning producer John Congleton to blend her raspy, urgent vocals with dynamic bass-heavy melodies. The playful, cheeky lo-fi elements are a departure from their previous album, which brings unexpected pockets of levity, like playing in rain puddles. “Let You” showcases Bully’s beloved, signature head-banging rhythms, but the stripped-down penultimate track, “Hours and Hours,” illustrates Bognanno’s emotional growth: “I’m pulling out my hair/Trying to figure this...

Mary Anning made her first discovery in 1811 at 12 years old, when her brother, Joseph, found a fossilized skull on the beaches of their seaside town of Lyme Regis in West Dorset, England. Over several months, Mary unearthed the near-complete skeleton of a marine reptile called an ichthyosaur. The death of Mary’s father, a cabinetmaker and fossil collector, left her family burdened with debt; the ichthyosaur had to be sold. Henry Henley, a local lord, bought it from the Annings for £23 and Mary’s...
California trio L.A. Witch’s sophomore LP adds lots of grit to the reverberated sound they embody by taking inspiration from grunge, psychedelic, Western, and punk genres, and melding them in a surprising way. The ever-cool vocals of lead singer Sade Sanchez blend seamlessly with the fuzzy and unrelenting guitars, deep bass, and punchy drums of the album. The opening track, “I Wanna Lose,” sets the record’s tone sonically and lyrically: “I control myself/Nobody else/Choose to lose/And free yourself,” Sanchez sings, demanding that the listener be...
