If you ever needed a country music video to give you a reason to take birth control, look no further. Country/Comedy duo Reformed Whores (Marie Cecile Anderson and Katy Frame) released a hilarious music video to remind us girls that our reproductive rights are important, especially to stave off all those creepy baby dolls. Belting out reasons like “I know the pill makes me fat, with a baby I’d be twice the size of that,” Reformed Whores ... Read More

Usually music festival season comes with a roller coaster of emotions: first, excitement to finally see who made the line-up, then hope that maybe I’ll actually make it this year, then the crushing, heartbreaking reality when I realize I can’t afford it (unless I don’t do anything else for the next three months).
Luckily for those of you in LA, a super-affordable festival is headed your way. Brokechella, an arts and music festival ... Read More

Best Coast got me through my first break-up, funeral, homesickness, and pretty much a decade of teen angst. I remember driving around during summer feeling so hopeful and young, yet sooo looow and moody. Best Coast was probably my only best friend at one point…therefore, I went to see them at a music festival so I could cry front row. But thanks to this binaural (360-degree field of sound) recording from Ryan Reichenfeld of “Baby I’m ... Read More

Just to give you and idea of this bullshit, when you being to type "Lorde's boyfriend" into Google, one of the top suggestions is "Lorde's boyfriend is ugly." DO PEOPLE HAVE NO HEARTS? We think they're pretty cute.Lowe chose to step into this mostly unwanted ... Read More

In honor of the reunion of Fleetwood Mac announced this week (we’re talking new album AND tour!!!!), you should not miss this gorgeous cover of “Dreams,” performed by former Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester and musician Dana Williams. The song was written by Stevie Nicks for the album Rumours (1977), and it was Fleetwood Mac's only #1 hit in the US to sell over one million copies. Yea, Stevie's good like that. The cover is ...

Vancouver three-piece The Courtneys make ‘90s-inspired slacker pop that’ll hang out in your head for weeks. Their songs are literally made of sugar, spice, and everything nice. Well, maybe not everything, but still. Sugar = infectious hooks, silly lyrics about Keanu Reeves, and fun track titles like “Nü Sundae.” Spice = Dinosaur Jr.-like riffs, classic punk bass lines, and general badassery. Everything nice = Jen, Courtney, and Sydney, ... Read More

Then, Fleetwood Mac is going back into the studio– the same studio, in fact, where they recorded Tusk in 1979. Then, they're going on an American tour. U.S. dates begin this September. This is not a drill, ladies.
Keyboardist/singer McVie (who we can thank for various top ten hits, like Don't Stop) is the ... Read More
