PREMIERE: HALEY “Credit Forever Part 2”

Haley by Colin Michael Simmons Since 2003, Haley McCallum has put dozens of releases out into the world as Haley Bonar - most of them with a folk rock bent and a focus on her clever lyricism and yearning vocals. That focus shifts with Pleasureland, released simply under the mononymous moniker HALEY. It's [...]

Have you noticed a sudden trend of "blacked out" Facebook profile pictures? You may have received a few messages about this one, encouraging you to show followers a "world without women."

INTERVIEW: L’Rain, Spellling, and Boy Harsher to Embrace the Experimental at Basilica SoundScape 2018

Just a short ride on Amtrak from Penn Station, Hudson - with its quaint brick buildings, historic architecture, and riverside views - has become an enclave for New York City’s artistic expats. One of its architectural centerpieces rises from the city’s industrial past: Basilica Hudson, a sprawling 1800s foundry reborn in 2010 as a concert [...]

PREMIERE: Billy Moon “Tangerine Dream”

Punk is a loaded word. It's been ascribed to popular artists as diverse as New Found Glory, Green Day, and Patti Smith. Graham Caldwell makes music as Billy Moon that expands beyond the label, gifting listeners with a tonally diverse album made for a record player's full turns. Punk Songs, Caldwell's debut LP, contains traces [...]

PREMIERE: Cillie Barnes “Mudslides”

Vanessa Long is the woman behind Cillie Barnes, a five-piece "avant-pop" project out of Happy Valley, California. It's her Ojai style, her witchy lyrics, and her shaman (that's right, I said shaman) that make this band feel intrinsically LA. It's an easy aesthetic to dismiss nowadays. Every band north of the 101 carries crystals in their [...]

INTERVIEW: Jen Baron of Girls Rock Helps Young Women Find Their Voices

It's hard for a guy to interrupt you if you've got your amp turned up to 11. Many women know the feeling of being mansplained to or interrupted mid-thought with the words "just to piggyback on that."

INTERVIEW: Jackie Venson Stands Her Ground With “Never Say Die”

Jackie Venson's music feels good. Its laid back vibe mirrors Austin, Texas, the city she calls home. In recent years however, Venson's music, like many artists living in the era of Trump, has taken on a bit more of an edge, her lyrics tackling the shift in American culture. "'Never Say Die' is a song [...]
