As the Amazing Spiderman, Andrew Garfield is no stranger to skintight costumes. But the outfits he wears in Arcade Fire's new video, "We Exist," are revealing in a whole different way.We kicked off the week with another new video featuring a blonde wig, so this seems like the perfect bookend. Both music videos highlight the performance of gender; how femininity is nothing inherent, but rather a set of learned behaviors. "Please" by Hers and "We Exist" by ... Read More
Nikki Lane met Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys at her pop-up vintage clothing stall. She was wearing a hunting jacket he wanted to buy. It turned into a case of being in the right place at the right time. Auerbach ended up producing Lane’s sophomore album All Or Nothin’, a collaboration nothing short of sensational. The 13-track record starts of with “Right Time”, an outlaw anthem that showcases Lane’s bluesy soul and country attitude. ... Read More
I first got stoked on post-punk DC band Priests when I heard “USA (Incantations)” off their EP Tape Two. It’s less of a song than it is a spoken word statement that outlines exactly how our country was wrongly built upon a constitution designed solely by rich, white, landowning men. The narrator recites facts and statistics that demonstrate how the US is built upon a false idea of freedom and fairness, yet popular culture and public education ... Read More
  The Julie Ruin has been forced to cancel tour dates on their North American and European tours in the upcoming months due to vocalist Kathleen Hanna’s ongoing fight with Lyme Disease. The singer first opened up to SPIN Magazine last year about her experience battling the disease, which required her to wear an internal IV inside her arm to more effectively deliver medicine closer to her heart. Hanna’s current treatment will take three months, ... Read More
I know you might be trying to forget some of your horrible 90s-fashion-inspired moments, like how you wore a massive rasta hat or almost got a tattoo of a daisy inside a yin yang on your shoulder. But there *are* some things about the 90s that are worth remembering, and we're not just talking about Clueless. Take, for example, 90s rock band 4 Non Blondes-- the group behind the megahit single "What's Up." The band had a one-time reunion this past weekend, at ... Read More
Pull on your red pleather boots, slap on some lipstick and a pair of heart-shaped glasses and go out dancing. In a field. Or outside a post office. Or in the forest. This is what front woman of HERS, Melissa L. Amstutz, does in the video for "Please." She places her hand stiffly on her head, positioning her own body. She dons a platinum blonde wig, and we are forced to see her enact a strange femininity. Gender truly is a performance, and one we all undergo each ... Read More
I never thought about it before, but now I'm curious. Perhaps one of the most creative ways to get attention for a new single, the Dutch all-girl group ADAM decided to test their singing chops...as they climax.  Both oddly intimate and unexpectedly funny, the women fight their waves of pleasure as they try to remain focused on the melody at hand. This would definitely not be as cool, cute, or fun if it was not an all-girl group. Also more ... Read More
Ultra-fab fashion blogger Gabifresh has made her own rendition of Bey’s “Flawless” (featuring Nadia Aboulhosn and Tess Munster) — and the new video is an ode to body positivity. Though "Flawless" is already an anthem of self-love, Bey's  original visual accompaniment doesn't exactly explore a gamut of lovable bodies.  This is where Gabifresh comes in. Her project's hashtag says it all: #everyBODYisflawless. The three ... Read More
 Leather, whips, fishnets, and choke holds are the ingredients for Miley newest undertaking. For her "Bangerz" world tour, Miley Cyrus has teamed up with  multi-media artist and fashion filmmaker, Quentin Jones, to create a risque two-minute video titled, Tongue-Tied. This sleek black and white art film in which Cyrus flaunts her nearly nude body is scheduled to play before the howling crowds awaiting her airborne hotdog entrance. While Miley toils to ...
