There’s really no way to find order in the chaos of noise-punk band Whorecough. The Virginia four-piece had their first show in a storage unit in the town where they met and since then have self-released a demo that combines styles of punk that don’t make sense on paper, but somehow work perfectly together. Powered by fuzzy, Spaceman 3-inspired guitar riffs and thrashing, hardcore drum parts, the six songs make for a ferocious mix that makes me want to ... Read More
“Something Bad” by Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood should be on in the background as you read this piece. Something bad has been happening in country music, and as usual, it’s hurting the ladies. It seems that booze, parking lot parties, and getting laid are what it is all about nowadays. Recently, country music has been dominated by men with a very specific agenda. Artists like Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line, and Lee ... Read More
It’s music festival season, and while you might have already braved the Porta Potties at some of the better-known U.S. events, there’s one gem that might’ve escaped your attention. The Festival d’éte de Quebec (the Quebec Summer Festival, for those of you who didn’t show up to high school French class) is happening as we speak in Canada, that health-insurance-having, glorious area north of Vermont. I attended the first few days ... Read More
It’s nearly the middle of July, which means that we must be craving the next best track to quench our thirst this summer. And what goes better with summer road trips than undiscovered synthpop? NYC-based ‘Criminal Talk’ is just what you are looking for; a group with an ever-growing repertoire of influences that is taking pop music to the next level. Alana Goldmann and Devon C. Johnson are the talented duo behind Criminal Talk. Alana is the ... Read More
Street Eaters named their second record more than appropriately. Blood/Muscles/Bones channels the raw approach to rock 'n' roll once taken by '70s and '80s innovators such as Wipers, Gang of Four, and X. On "Reverse" a combination of driving drumbeats and evil guitar riffs get the fuse lit with a perfect two-and-a-half minute burst of fiery punk rock. "Null" follows suit, channeling the aforementioned Los Angeles punk band with trade-off male/female ... Read More
You know how straightwhiteboystexting.tumblr.com has become the perfect response to any and all Tinder creeps that demand nudes? Lily Allen has crafted the perfect equivalent to shutting down internet trolls. Her new video for the song “URL Badman” literally had me laughing out loud and totally clicking with her descriptions of these goons. Not to mention, the song is catchy as hell.Allen’s critique on the hypocrisy of internet hate ... Read More
Need a new party anthem? Angel Haze paired up with producer Nacey for “I Own It”, a summer jam that is definitely Project X-worthy; think of it as a hyped up version of “Young, Wild, & Free." Haze totally punches on the track with both speedy rap verses and nursery rhyme style hooks. She totally (ugh I already hate myself for typing this) owns it.   Though the track came out a month ago, it has recently been making the rounds again with ... Read More
I’ve been pretty angry over the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decision and I’m not alone. It seems like every time I refresh my Facebook news feed, there’s a new article describing how unjust the ruling was or personal stories of women that can be affected by this decision.  Today, I was instead treated to the song form of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s 35-page dissent of the anti-contraception decision. The tune is pretty awesome. And ... Read More
Everyone knows that guy at the party who busts out the acoustic guitar and begins the opening chords of “Wonderwall” by Oasis while exclaiming, “sing along if you know the words” only to be followed by a mediocre-at-best rendition of a classic, that really shouldn’t be touched.However, Taylor Momsen of The Pretty Reckless took on the legendary band -- covering the song “Champagne Supernova”-- and absolutely nailed ...
