NEWS ROUNDUP: Beyonce, Angel Olsen, and Anohni


  • Beyonce Teams Up With The Dixie Chicks

    The country group and pop star performed “Daddy Lessons” at the Country Music Awards with a full band in an impressive performance, but one that didn’t come without controversy: The CMA was accused of removing any mentions of the performance from its social media, some racist country fans left a bunch of unsavory comments regarding Beyonce’s anti-police associations from Lemonade, and people are still mad at the Dixie Chicks for insulting George Bush in 2003. Whatever, guys.

  • Anohni’s “Hopelessness” Gets Visuals

    “How did I become a virus?” The surreal video, which accompanies the title track of Ahnohni’s May 2016 album,  features a businesswoman walking through dream-like scenes where she confronts her connection to and impact on nature. Eventually, she retreats to the safety of technology.

  • Angel Olsen Performed With The Raincoats

    Clad in matching striped shirts, this collaboration celebrated Rough Trade’s 40th anniversary at Islington Assembly Hall in London. Check out their performance of “High And Wild.”

  • Haybaby Release Video For “Yours”

    Released yesterday via Tiny Engines, the video is an unsettling up-close shot of singer Leslie Hong as she struggles to find her own space in a room full of strangers, flinching at their touch. The song itself is blistering and raw, a must-listen. Check it out on Bandcamp, where you can name your price for the single.
