PREMIERE: Fay Kueen “Atmospheric Zebra”

PREMIERE: Stimmerman “Dentist vs Pharmacist”

  Parental expectations can be fraught with peril. Some parents expect their kids to take over the family business, some envision their children as doctors or lawyers, and in some circles dwell Alex P. Keaton types whose hippie parents shudder at the thought of white collar work. "Dentist Vs Pharmacist," the latest release from Stimmerman [...]

PREMIERE: Lauren Rocket “Rattlesnake”

Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Lauren Rocket is the embodiment of the word "badass," and that's no clearer than in her latest single, "Rattlesnake." In the video for the fierce, beat-driven rebel anthem, we see Rocket dancing around the house, ravenously eating sweets, and posing in an "Anarchy" shirt while singing lyrics like, "I like the [...]

PLAYING PHILLY: APHRA and Control Top Release New Videos

APHRA photo by Megan Matuzak Between APHRA's solemn plea for "Love & Affection" and Control Top's wildly cathartic "Office Rage," this week's new releases in Philly music seem to span completely opposite facets of human emotion. That may be an exaggeration, but you'd be hard-pressed to find two new music videos that are [...]

LIVE REVIEW: HARD Day of the Dead Festival Mixes EDM and Spirituality

On Saturday, October 26, I attended a San Pedro ceremony. With a group of fellow journeyers, I drank the extract of a psychedelic cactus sourced from Peru, danced around a circle to live music, shook rattles, played drums, lay down to focus on my own insights and visions, and had drug-induced heart-to-hearts with other participants. [...]

PREMIERE: True Dreams Follow EP with Title Track from Upcoming LP No. 1

When I meet up with feminist punk duo True Dreams at drummer Hannah Nichols' Brooklyn apartment, they're wearing what they call their "uniforms": black school girl skirts, leather harnesses, and crisp white Dickies button downs, each emblazoned with half of the band's logo: Nichols' shoulder says "TRUE" and guitarist Angela Carlucci's says "DREAMS" in a [...]

PREMIERE: Maija Sofia “Elizabeth”

Irish singer-songwriter Maija Sofia's debut album Bath Time (Nov 22) is a lesson in history — particularly in history's forgotten women. Its first single, "The Glitter," centers on Caribbean novelist Jean Rhys and the displacement and misrepresentation she faced after coming to England at age 16. Another of the tracks, "Elizabeth," is about Elizabeth Siddal, a [...]
