Music Mondays: Honeyblood

Honeyblood is like a throwback to the early 2000s, when I spent a lot of time listening to girls playing guitars and screaming into microphones, wishing I could do the same. Their second album Babes Never Die (2016) perfectly recalls a kind of girlhood that is reckless, carefree, and entirely itself. It’s a girlhood spent with […]

Music Mondays: Jorja Smith

There are plenty of times when I’ve thought, “thank you, Drake,” (no, not sarcastically*), and when his 2017 mixtape More Life dropped, that is exactly what I thought upon hearing “Jorja Interlude.” Since then this girl, who just turned 20 yesterday (!), has been serenading me. Did you catch her appearance two weeks ago on Kali Uchi’s […]

(Quick) Music Mondays: Banks

Here’s a song that I’ve been listening to for about a month. It’s beautiful and calm, and mostly I enjoy it because it seems like the perfect counterpart to another song I like.

Last week the Colombian-American singer-songwriter, music video director, and all-around badass released “Tyrant,” the first single from her […]

On Our Radar: The Female Gaze

I’m going to go ahead and start a new feature, one that won’t be tied to a certain day of the week or bound by specific content. It could be anything and anyone, ANYTHING and ANYONE that you find inspiring or thought-provoking or engaging! — Happy Sunday! I fell into a bit of a rabbit […]

Music Mondays: Kelela

Hello? Hi! We took a bit of a break last week. Individual lives took over in weird ways. On my part, I simply couldn’t wrap my head around the week days…Monday felt like a Tuesday, Tuesday felt like a Thursday, it was strange. Anyway, we now return to your regularly scheduled programming with today’s MM […]

Music Mondays: Fiona Apple

I’ve had too much time to think today… I trust that today’s featured artist doesn’t need an introduction, so I’m just going to leave this here. and this: FYI, I’m always available to discuss and re-live 90s angst.
