[BEST VIDEO EVER] Stickers “Sacajawea” *PREMIERE*

I like music with a sense of urgency. That is to say, I prefer songs that feel like they are constantly pushing themselves to the point of rupturing, but always holding just shy of actual explosion (in turn, these songs have the same effect on your heart, creating a three...

[CULT TALK] Girl Tears: A Feel Good Story

(photos by Alice Baxley) I met Skrillex once and he was the nicest person on the entire planet. Just genuinely warm, kind, and humble, even though he is like the third highest paid DJ in the world and could probably sell out the entire city of Las Vegas. This is really not hyperbole. I think...
[BEST VIDEO EVER] Pink Mountaintops ft. J. Mascis "Shakedown"

[BEST VIDEO EVER] Pink Mountaintops ft. J. Mascis “Shakedown”

  This video new video from Pink Mountaintops has everything a good video should have: a beautiful girl (played by the lovely and talented photographer Mandy-Lyn), cool special effects, a train, Pac-Man, and double-vision J. Mascis. In short, it is awesome but you will know that as soon as you use your eyeballs to watch...

[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN] The Coathangers

(photos by Jayne Min) I’ve already written extensively in praise of The Coathangers (like HERE and HERE and HERE and also HERE), and have let my single white female tendencies shine bright like creepy, adoring diamond, so I won’t blather on anymore here except to say this: The Coathangers, with their well-crafted punk songs and...
[BEST SONG EVER] Charli XCX "Break The Rules"

[BEST SONG EVER] Charli XCX “Break The Rules”

  Before I dish on how much I love Charli XCX’s new track “Break The Rules,” let’s just agree to agree on how pathetic it is that I, a painfully (err gainfully) employed 28-year-old woman, feel a deep and meaningful connection to this rebellious anthem for back to school blues. Okay, now that we’ve established...
[BEST VIDEO EVER] The Mystery Lights "Flowers In My Hair, Demons In My Head"

[BEST VIDEO EVER] The Mystery Lights “Flowers In My Hair, Demons In My Head”

  I watched this Mystery Lights video a few times this past weekend and really enjoyed it (whilst concurrently storing some of the images for future nightmares) but last night I went to see Counting Crows (yes really) and it was glorious (yes really) and psychedelics (maybe) so now I’m not really in the correct...

[FOMO-GRAPHS] Burger-A-Go-Go Polaroids

“When it comes to music, the all-girl concept is great in theory, but can also easily go the way of Lilith Fair real fast if not executed properly. But in the case of this past weekend’s Burger-A-Go-Go, the female-centric festival put on by cult Southern California label Burger Records, awesomeness definitely prevailed.” You can read...
[CONFESSAY] My First Ever Tinder Date Took Me To Skid Row

[CONFESSAY] My First Ever Tinder Date Took Me To Skid Row

Listen, I’m pretty much the definition of low-maintenance.  My last boyfriend considered romance to be dining in at McDonalds.  I’ve been taken on a date to the 99 Cents Store, and even had a boy make a quick stop at a Coin Star so he could convert pennies to dollars to pay for our pizza...

[CONFESSAY] Cleanliness is Next to Cultiness

[CONFESSAY] Cleanliness is Next to Cultiness

In May, I left an A.A/twelve-step-based residential treatment center after a two-month stay. It was an intense, rewarding experience, but left me feeling pretty confused. I learned a lot about myself, but I also learned that A.A/N.A in its entirety is not for me. In the same sense that the fundamentals of Christianity are both...

[TO DO] iO Tillett Wright’s “We Are You” Portrait & Pool Party

It’s hot, your vag (Ed Note: or penis, or whatever you are packing, we love all of our readers – all 13) is sweating, and you probably want to party with a cocktail in one hand and an animal-shaped pool floatie in another. Good news: this Sunday, June 13, you can do all that and...
[BEST VIDEO EVER] White Lung "In Your Home" Plus Interview With Director Justin Gradin

[BEST VIDEO EVER] White Lung “In Your Home” Plus Interview With Director Justin Gradin

Is there anything better in this world than a two-person horse costume? I know you didn’t even open your mouth to answer because you know that this is in fact a completely rhetorical question, as there is absolutely not anything better. No, not even nachos. Not even nachos with real cheese AND nacho cheese. Not...

[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN] Tim Cohen of The Fresh & Onlys

It’s my belief that sad songs truly make the world go around, or at the very least they help shepherd some of us out of bed and through our days and maybe back into bed but still, with their melancholy melodies and wistful words, they shepherd us nonetheless. By this logic The Fresh & Onlys...
