Since its beginnings in 2002, the AFROPUNK festival has grown into a a highly anticipated and expertly curated event. This year is no exception.  Last year, we saw acts like Questlove, Danny Brown, Le1f, Death, Trash Talk, and Mykki Blanco take the stage. This year, AFROPUNK will feature “the best assembly of female musical talent since Lilith Fair,” according to a statement from their press release. It’s self-described as “a ... Read More
Some weeks back, I found myself at & Lovers in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. The show’s line-up consisted of two openers (Lips and James Tillman) followed by the band Throw Vision. I made my way down there to chat with Throw Vision – a band that hails from Brooklyn and consists of four players: Tiff O who is lead vox and guitar; Taja Cheek on keys, vox, bass, synth, and guitar; Dan Kleederman on lead guitar, bass, and vox,; and Alex Goldberg on ...

Zoe Saldana was recently a guest on Watch What Happens: Live with Andy Cohen, when a viewer called in and asked (in a very judgmental tone I might add), what Zoe thought of Britney Spear’s show in Vegas, and if she heard her song that was recently released without autotune (which I will not link to because that is irrelevant). And Zoey handled it like the ultimate sweetie-pie homegirl we know she is. If you don’t remember, Zoe, Britney and Taryn ... Read More
What do you think a mix of a classically trained ex-opera singer, politically charged lyrics and dark rock sounds like? Probably not Emily Danger, but I can assure you, all of the ingredients are there and then some. This incredible Brooklyn-based band takes “dark cabaret rock” – a genre that you will want to spread like wildfire – to lengths you didn’t think were possible. I chatted with the amazing Emily Danger herself, and I sat in ... Read More
Although we’re fresh off the new Beyoncé-Nicki collaboration that has quite literally rocked the internet, we may have another duo of fire starters partnering up soon.   A few days ago, Miley Cyrus turned her Instagram into a one day, mini-shrine to one of music’s most prevalent and influential feminists: the one, the only Kathleen Hanna. She threw out a couple pro-Hanna comments, like “coolest ever” and “f*** ... Read More
Aaron Freeman, best known for his role as one of Ween's founding members, expands on his approach to collaging together different styles of pop with his debut solo release as FREEMAN. These twelve tracks come together as a mesmerizing kaleidoscope of psychedelia, glam rock, country, and folk. "Covert Discretion," kicks off the record with a story about blacking out during a post-show hotel party sung over Freeman's delicate folk instrumentation. His gorgeous ... Read More
The first time I listened to electro-soul artist SHIRA, I felt as if I was no longer controlling what I was listening to, but rather it was controlling me. It was – no joke- an out of body experience; stronger than the chills you get from a song that touches you in ways that you forget only music can do. Her lyrics so boldly represent the power that women have inside of them; listening to her makes me want to connect with every woman on this planet and just ... Read More
I was binge watching some of my fave shows on Saturday night/Sunday morning when I checked Twitter and noticed my feed EXPLODING. I scroll down only to find out that the very anticipated, much rumored collab between Beyonce and Nicki Minaj had arrived earlier than expected.  With Nicki's push-back for Anaconda, we all expected it to come on Monday, but you know Bey, in that you don't actually know her. She doesn't care about our sleep schedule, she's all in ... Read More
Hilary Duff has new music and this is what dreams are made of! While you may have thought her music career was “so yesterday,” in the seven years since she’s produced an album she’s had babies, gotten a divorce and then there was that whole Aaron Carter still loving her thing (oh, brother). She’s been busy, okay? And while her vocals on her new single “Chasing the Sun” sound a bit more like Paris Hilton’s than I can remember, I’m ... Read More
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
