Music Mondays

Not gonna lie…I’ve been exclusively listening to one song since last week: the Keala Settle-led “This is Me” from The Greatest Showman soundtrack. I have Settle’s powerful performance during this year’s Oscars ceremony to thank for the introduction to this show-stopping, uplifting number. Seriously y’all, if you’re feeling down or like all the confidence has […]

Music Mondays: Courtney Barnett

I’ve been listening to Courtney Barnett’s new single “Nameless, Faceless” almost obsessively since she released it about a couple of weeks ago.

(let’s ignore what Victoria Beckham might’ve said for a moment) #Neverforget that a good lot of us were introduced to feminism by a small notion we know as GIRL […]

I’ve been sitting on this one for a while, trying to put together the words to describe the quiet intensity that Savages inspires. It’s more than quiet, really, because it builds into a frantic ferocity, ensuring a transition from light headbang to full-on mosh pit. It’s definitely not something that I’ve gravitated towards since early […]
