What was originally going to be released as a Courtney Love record, the new Hole album, Nobody's Daughter, is scheduled for release on April 27th, the same date as the band's New York show at ...

And what's changed to keep it relevant in 2010? These are just some of the questions the International Girl Gang Underground zine, "a compilation zine that picks up where Riot Grrrl left off," hopes to answer, and they ...

Younger folks might draw Nick Cave, PJ Harvey, and Mark Lanegan comparisons, as Parasol employs a similarly low vocal range to deliver her torrid tales, but she creates her own otherworldly atmosphere by accompanying herself on guitar and piano.
