BEST OF 2015: The Year In Lyrics

Words are pretty weird. One alone is easy to understand, almost impossible to misinterpret. But string a bunch of them together, and it gets more complicated (as well as beautiful, descriptive, romantic or hurtful). One line can make you remember a song forever, or dismiss it entirely. Out of all of the thousands, maybe millions of lyric that were recorded [...]

BEST OF 2015: Our Favorite Frontwomen

Lukas Keapproth/AMERICAN-STATESMAN 2015 was a great year for women in music. Specifically, for women who front a band as both a singer and guitarist. While we've reached a point where it's not totally necessary to point and shout every time we find an amazing band  led by a female musician (it's becoming one of [...]

PLAYLIST: The Best Shows You Haven’t Missed This Summer

1. Jenny Lewis - "Head Underwater" One of the best tracks off of one of the year’s best albums, “Head Underwater” is a doozy of a pop song. Lewis sings conspicuously dismal lyrics (“My own mortality, I contemplated”) over a bubbly, dynamic beat (that she also produced herself), creating interesting tension within a sublime melody. [...]

BEST OF 2014 ALBUMS: Kelly’s Picks

1. Lana Del Rey – Ultraviolence I’ve been on the Lana Del Rey bandwagon ever since I heard “Dark Paradise” (we’re all just pretending that her second album, Paradise, never happened, right?). Lana delivers all of the slow-burn goodness found in Born to Die and that fans expect from a follow up. She kicks things [...]

10 Weird & Wonderful Things I Found in Academy Records’ Dumpster

On Thursday the crew charged with clearing out the old Academy Records Annex location on N. 6th tossed a bunch of "unwanted" records into a dumpster, prompting Brooklyn's vinyl enthusiasts to descend on the rejects.  I jumped in, quickly found myself covered in hot pink paint, and dug until I found a vein of scratched [...]

AudioFemme’s Best of 2013

From elaborate roll-outs to surprise releases, 2013 was a banner year for comebacks, break-outs, break-ups, and overnight sensations.  The fact that the most oblique content could cause rampant controversy to reverberate through the blogosphere turned every song into a story and made every story seem epic.  At the heart of it all are the sounds [...]
