  SIR BABYGIRLCrush On Me(Father/Daughter) 
In early 2018, Sir Babygirl—the nom de guerre of musician Kelsie Hogue—erupted onto the pop scene with the release of her debut single, “Heels.” The song, about breaking up and running home without shoes, felt like a revelation. Crush on Me, her debut on Father/Daughter records, is even more of a triumph. Over the course of nine tracks, Sir Babygirl manages to hotwire queer desire, inject it with manic abandon, and drive it straight to Claire’s. Album standout “Haunted House” is the...

LADYTRONLadytron(!K7 Records) Releasing its sixth studio album after a seven-year hiatus, Ladytron has come a long way since the band’s inception in the late ’90s. Still combining shoegaze and indie synth-pop, the British foursome has stepped back from the blunt lyrical stylings of earlier hits (think 604’s “He Took Her to a Movie” or “Seventeen” from Light & Magic) to create a more complex sound, hinting at a world full of discontent. The unmistakable voices remain intact, carried by smoother, heavier dance tracks—most notable on the...

From the minute you walk into the theater, you realize this play is not just a show. This is a Gloria Steinem experience. The biographical play Gloria: A Life is currently playing in New York at the Daryl Roth Theatre, where the round staging seems to have been chosen specifically to reflect the talking circle that Gloria suggests as a way to equalize everyone. Every inch of the stage's floor is covered in persian rugs, and each individual seat is designated by a paisley velvet pillow....
The 2019 Grammy Awards were last night, and women won big, even making history in the process. Here are some our favorite moments from music's biggest night: Cardi B became the first solo woman to win for Best Rap Album Her emotional acceptance speech made us love her even more. As Jezebel reports, “the first woman to ever win the award was Lauryn Hill, as part of the Fugees, in 1997," but this was the first time a woman won on her own. So Cardi is in...

If you haven’t seen The Favourite—the multi-award winning, Bechdel-Wallace-test-passing movie beautifully described by star Rachel Weisz as "like a funnier, sex-driven All About Eve," then bookmark this page and get yourself down to the cinema. I think all history-lovers and Olivia Colman worshippers can agree that seeing the stories of three powerful women in history who aren't Elizabeth I (God love her but girl, you have taken up too much screentime) has been massively refreshing. Not only did this incredible film give us the gift of this...

However, Nancy finds ways around the mundanity of her life: by concocting scams, in depth and in detail, where she...
