Premiere: Feminist Fatales Egg Drop Soup Share Video for New Mix of “PMS”

In 1993, Damon Albarn painted a portrait of the United States’ damaged relationship with fame through “Miss America,” off Blur’s second album. Though they were known as an uptempo Britpop band, this track is discordant and slow—and begs to be sneered at. “I don’t mind,” Albarn drones in the chorus, “I love only you.” A […]

Premiere: Jonny Kosmo’s New Single “Jessica Triangle” Promotes Community—See Him at Highland Park Ebell on Feb 27

Songwriting depends on hyperbole. The most common topic, love, is only spoken of at the extreme. We have the classic Dolly Parton line, “I will always love you,” which is the polar opposite of Cher’s sentiment: “Do you believe in life after love?” The feeling will either stay forever or kill you, according to these […]

Local musician Rachel Goodrich spins a tale on her new single “Gucci” using this thread of an idea, turning common label-flaunting into an exercise of self-love. See her perform at […]

Feels Drop New Single Ahead of New Album and Release Party at the Echo

Shoegaze meets psychedelic on Feels’ new single; it is a catchy hybrid of a song, reminiscent of both Blondie and The Kinks. With a title like “Awful Need,” it is surprisingly aloof, following the band’s previous grunge release, “Car.” Both new singles will appear on the local quartet’s forthcoming album, Post Earth, due out on […]
