This music is straight bangin’, pun intended. Macy Gray is back with a music video that’s as dusky and devilish as her unmistakable voice, and twice as deadly. The video for “Bang Bang” is Bond-style debauchery at its sexiest with slow motion high-stakes poker, complete with dirty dancing, and some killer call girls in killer lingerie. The new single is off Gray’s upcoming eighth studio album “The Way,” out October ... Read More
If you were not aware that Nicki Minaj is releasing a new single soon, you may be living under a rock. I’m sorry to be the one to tell you. The internet has been buzzing about it for some time now - partly due to the single’s cover art that Minaj posted to Instagram last Thursday.  The notoriously body-unfriendly app has (surprisingly) not taken it down; instead, the photo has been receiving backlash from both insignificant internet haters and ...

Lorde is once again proving that she is as royal as her name (and her Grammy award-winning single) suggest.  It’s just been announced that the singer is set to release the lead single, as well as curate the soundtrack, for Mockingjay - Part 1, the first film of the final installment of the Hunger Games trilogy. The 17-year old singer/songwriter commented that compiling the soundtrack and working with all of the artists involved was a challenging ...

Jenny Lewis’ new album The Voyager dropped yesterday. THIS IS NOT A DRILL. We reported on the amazing moustache-filled cross-dressing wonderment that was her music video for “One of the Guys,” starring our ladyloves Kristen Stewart, Anne Hathaway and Brie Larson, but the day is finally here. THE ALBUM HAS DROPPED. Former Rilo Kiley front woman Jenny Lewis has produced her third solo album in six years — a perfectly polished musical ... Read More
Brand new country duo Maddie & Tae are calling out the crazy-high levels of sexism in the music genre known as “Bro Country”—the hyper-masculine, woman-objectifying trope that has come to dominate modern country music. They use their new song, “Girl in a Country Song” to point out the ridiculousness of portraying every woman as an overly sexual yet faceless being.  The lyrics are pretty great:  “I hear you over ...

Quoth the Raveonettes, “Give me more,” and they are doing just that. The Raveonettes released their new album Pe’Ahi earlier this week and it’s safe to say this haunting dreamy album is the perfect soundtrack for your transition from summer to fall, especially the single “Summer Ends.”(trigger warning: don't watch this video if you are prone to photosensitive epilepsy). They just released new lyric videos for a few of ... Read More
Lana Del Rey has opened up about a particular song from her album Ultraviolece. "Fucked My Way Up to the Top" is the 9th track on the most recent album, and the song hinges on the narrator’s pursuit of stardom and using sex to achieve it.  Knowing that Lana is an artist who writes songs based on voyeuristic nostalgia, I assumed that elements of this track (including lyrics like: ‘I’m a dragon, you’re a whore’ and ‘What I ...

Much of the inspiration for Gulp's latest album came from the band's road trip through the Golden State, and you'll definitely feel the heat of the California sun coming off of these tracks.  Their style hearkens back to the time when psychedelic pop had just discovered analog synths. Season Sun's opening track, "Game Love," is a good example of Gulp's penchant for vintage electronica, as a warbling Moog backs a cascade of shimmering guitars and Lindsey ... Read More
In other news about male pop/R&B singers feeling the responsibility to remind women of all colors, sizes, and ages of their beauty, Pharrell has released a new music video for his song “Come Get It Bae”. The video starts out with a declaration in bright red letters: “Beauty Has No Expiration Date”. I instantly prepared myself for another John Legend-type “embrace the beauty of all women-style music video.” ... Read More
The Casket Girls, a three-piece from Georgia, is one of the very few bands with a creation story as dreamlike as its music. With a sound that’s equal parts soulful and grungy, dreamy and haunting, the Casket Girls really hold their own in the realm of what their record label accurately dubs “eerie-pop." They aren’t the first thing that comes to mind when you think of a summer soundtrack, but Strange Majik is here to change that. In their remix of ... Read More
