  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 ...

We all have our favorite children's show theme song – one we've committed to memory over the course of many Saturday mornings. One we used to know by heart, and could scream along to while munching sugary cereal in front of the TV. Some of my personal favorites: the theme for Magic School Bus (a classic), Pepper Ann (my lips are moving along to the lyrics as I link this), and the more recent The Weekenders (DRINK ...

It seems fitting that Jessica Weiss began penning songs as soundtracks to student films since the Brighton-based lead singer and songwriter’s lyrics are rife with vivid imagery, intense drama, and compelling storylines. Fellow art student Guitarist Daniel Falvey met Weiss after an exhibition of her work inspired him, and drummer Michael Miles was later brought in to handle percussion. Together shoegaze trio Fear of Men creates a bittersweet sound by blending ... Read More
San Francisco-based band Be Calm Honcho makes easy, breezy indie-pop that’ll make you anxious for hazy summer, and saying “fuck you” to all that work you should be doing.  At times, the quartet echoes sounds of classic blues bands, with guitarist Alex’s jazzy solos and lead singer Shannon’s powerhouse vocals, that channel the smoldering, mystical stylings of Alex Winston. It's a wonderfully dynamic sound that you have to hear for ... Read More
  It does not come to a surprise that Norway has nurtured yet another electro-pop gem; quintet, Highasakite, led by the fervent vox of Ingrid Helene Håvik, has finally reached U.S. soil and they're already blossoming. Norway's capital, Oslo, being renowned for its eclectic music scene, was a rich and resourceful environment for the band's innovative sound. Highasakite was born out of the members' involvement in Oslo's jazz scene, where lead vocalist ... Read More
