Hear Reality Something's Haunting New Song 'Bail,' Whose Proceeds Will Go to Planned Parenthood Hear Reality Something's Haunting New Song 'Bail,' Whose Proceeds Will Go to Planned Parenthood

One question many artists have been openly discussing since the election is how they can contribute, especially when all signs point to an ever-more hostile environment for them in the incoming administration.

Here Is a Song that Made Me Happy Today: Teen Vice's 'Out of Excuses' Here Is a Song that Made Me Happy Today: Teen Vice's 'Out of Excuses'

Of all the dread I feel for the upcoming four years, one of the pettiest and least important is a mirror of the way music was often written about during the second Bush Administration. While I can’t specify any particular piece from back—the Iraq War began a long time ago—I have a vague recollection of thinkpiece upon…

Here's New Art from the Elle Fanning Fashion Horror Film The Neon Demon Here's New Art from the Elle Fanning Fashion Horror Film The Neon Demon

I’m so looking forward to The Neon Demon, Nicholas Winding Refn’s model horror film, in which Elle Fanning portrays a rising teen model surrounded by rivals in the fashion industry who essentially want to eat her alive.

Legendary punk rocker Alice Bag has been carrying the torch for sharp feminist outspokenness since she helped pioneer the L.A. punk scene in the 1970s, so it’s hard to believe she’s just now releasing her first solo album. As an author, educator, lifelong badass and the leader of The Bags, among many other bands,…

There’s such a lovely ebullience to Toronto-born Joanie Wolkoff’s single “The Homecoming,” which rules. Staccato beats stretch crisply below her vocal, earnest and true with a teensy level of grit to it—you could imagine the accompanying video would come full of flashing lights and neon lines to connote the futurism…

Hear 'Woman Is a Word,' an Effervescent New Single from L.A. Producer Empress Of Hear 'Woman Is a Word,' an Effervescent New Single from L.A. Producer Empress Of

Before I introduce “Basement Queens,” this ebullient new number written by Minneapolis rapper Lizzo and Northampton singer/guitarist Sad13 (aka Sadie Dupuis, also of Speedy Ortiz) for Google Docs, please indulge me: I recently began reading Every Song Ever, a forthcoming book by New York Times pop critic Ben Ratliff,…

Grimes Reveals Her Art Angel Alter-Egos in New Documentary Grimes Reveals Her Art Angel Alter-Egos in New Documentary

“At first, I guess, there was just Grimes. I don’t technically have control over her narrative anymore. You know, she very much exists in pop culture now. Grimes as one person cannot represent more than a couple ideas,” the musician says at the start of a new short documentary produced by Fader. That loss of control…
