With 3 members of Pussy Riot on trial in Russia, Madonna is the latest celebrity to speak out in support of them, urging the Russian court not to condemn the trio to prison.  The women, all in their 20s, are on trial for performing a song in a Russian Orthodox church protesting Putin and his support by the church’s leaders-- particularly Patriarch Kirill. The rockers’ prosecutor asked for a three-year prison sentence, although they could face up ... Read More
 The Dirty Projectors aren’t known for musical simplicity, but on the band’s sixth album Swing Lo Magellan, it takes a stab at stripped-down soul and R&B, mixed with the sprawling orchestral arrangements, handclaps, and neo doo-wop flourishes they love. “About to Die” sounds like frontman David Longstreth’s attempt at a drive-in classic, and single “Gun Has No Trigger” loads up on the “oohs” and ...

Austin based, San Francisco raised babes Natalie Gordon and Lauren Hess of Agent Ribbons are at it again with their upcoming EP Let Them Talk, out September 11th on Antenna Farm Records. The newest track off of the record, “Family Haircut,” is a promising preview of things to come, with its beautifully haunting sounds and harmonies. The single opens with some ethereal ‘oohs,’ accompanied by strong, punctuated drumming that then expands into ... Read More
Iggy Azalea may be the newest larger than life female on the rap scene, but her videos tend to favor the pint-sized. She went viral for her video for her song "PU$$Y," in which what loos like a six-year-old kid clings to her neck. If he hung around the set long enough, he could hear lines like "pussy illy, wetter than the Amazon, taste this kitty" or "taste the rainbow, here's my Skittles." Not exactly age appropriate, but more like a premature lesson in sex-ed. ... Read More
Three members of Pussy Riot, the radical, neon balaclava-wearing group of Russian feminist activists that challenged the Kremlin with their electrified feminist performance protests, went on trial in Moscow on Monday in a case that will set the tone for Vladimir Putin's new presidency. Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, 22, Yekaterina Samutsevich, 29, and Maria Alekhina, 24, face up to seven years in jail, simply for performing a protest song in a cathedral. They felt that ... Read More
British singer Paloma Faith showed that even if you're not an athlete, you can win a gold medal for style on Saturday when she carried the Olympic torch through East London. She donned six-inch fire truck red stilettos, so that she would be comfortable for the run, and a pompadour hairstyle colored similarly to the flame itself. Faith also customized the official Olympic torchbearer tracksuit into a crop top and pedal pushers. Talk about going ... Read More
I'm a pretty big list maker. Post-its have become a part of my room decor and scribbled on notes are forever falling out of my backpack pockets. I'm also always on the lookout for some new inspiration, so an inspiring inventory is pretty much the cream of the crop in my book. These four are particularly special--each collection of words provides inspirational thoughts and ideas that are applicable to living a creative, inquisitive, and fulfilling life in general. ...

   Purity Ring, the Canadian electronic duo of Corin Roddick and Megan James, sounds like water so freezing cold it shocks your skin—it’s surprising, uncomfortable, and disorienting. Icy-blue notes appear throughout their debut full-length album, Shrines, as James’ aloof-but-assertive vocals go in and out of focus, trading places moment to moment with spastic synthesizers. Roddick handles that instrument, turning delicate melodies ... Read More
U.K. singer Lianne La Havas is standing on the precipice of superstardom. She’s been buzzed about and blogged about, but until very recently, we’d only heard a few of her songs (including the amazing “Forget,” which you should check out on YouTube immediately). Luckily, we had the opportunity to check out an intimate showcase by La Havas here in NYC, and were blown away by her confidence on stage and by her powerful-yet-delicate voice. ... Read More
