Fuck Yourself Up With the Amazing Music From Last Night's Game of Thrones

I watch Game of Thrones. There, I said it. I watch that dumb, awful show every single stupid Sunday night because I’ve invested so many hours of my life that—at this point—I can’t very well back out now. I generally watch the first few minutes focused on my meal (I don’t take my first bite until the credits have…

Roadies Snoozily Sprouts Up in Vinyl's Place, Present-Day Nostalgia for Rock Firmly Situated

Throughout Vinyl’s first—and now final—season, my opinion changed ever so slightly from when I first wrote about its debut episode. Vinyl remained absurd, overly nostalgic, ahistorical and evenly lionizing of men, but at the very least, the effervescent Juno Temple got to shine a little and, even better, the “getting…

The Only Problematic Thing About the New Ghostbusters Is Its Awful New Theme Song

We’ve had to sit through months of sexist Ghostbusters fanboys in a full-blown outrage woody because the new Ghostbusters is comprised of four very capable, very funny women instead of men. The mommy-fear was palpable there, and perhaps a plant, because even despite Missy Elliott, the real thing Ghostbusters fans have…

Hear Atlanta Singer/Producer Abra's New Freestyle Joint 'Crybaby'

Abra writes and produces all her own music in a closet in Atlanta, so everything she’s done thus far has got a slight lo-fi tinge to it, while being formidable in both melody and sheer force. But her latest track, “Crybaby,” might be my favorite thing she’s ever done: an echo-drenched, lip-glossed vocal over a beat…

Meet Page Four, Denmark's Answer to One Direction

Last week, I traveled to Copenhagen for a massive, citywide, four-day rave (I’ll tell you all about that later). During a rare break lounging around my hotel room, I found myself mesmerized by Teenage Superfan, a documentary television show about the teen megafans of Page Four: a Danish boy band consisting of four…

Listen to Victoria Beckham's Scrapped 2003 Hip-Hop Album With Damon Dash

Things didn’t have to be this way. Since leaving Spice Girls, Victoria Beckham has rebranded herself so effectively that it’s bewildering to imagine that she was ever known as Posh Spice, or doing anything but being a fashion mogul and muse, walking around with severe haircuts and strappy stilettos and compression…

Shura's New Single 'What's It Gonna Be' Fuckin Rules 

British singer-songwriter/producer Shura has steadily pumped out an array of near-perfect pop tracks over the past few years, but her latest single, “What’s It Gonna Be,” twists the tapered, yearning nostalgia of songs like “Touch” and “2Shy” into a condensed, sophisticated three minute vocalization of the best ‘80s…

Ashley Graham Allows Joe Jonas to Caress Her in New DNCE Video for Some Reason

I like DNCE’s “Toothbrush” despite myself and its cheesy lyrics, mostly because it sounds like Phoenix (the band) by way of an Orange Julius, and also because invocations of wearing a dude’s t-shirt in the morning always spur a touch of romantic sentimentality. In the new video, plus size model and general goddess…

Alice Bag Protests GMOs and Monsanto in New Punk Song 'Poisoned Seed'

Legendary punk rocker Alice Bag has been carrying the torch for sharp feminist outspokenness since she helped pioneer the L.A. punk scene in the 1970s, so it’s hard to believe she’s just now releasing her first solo album. As an author, educator, lifelong badass and the leader of The Bags, among many other bands,…
