indie indian bands

Inspired by a buzzfeed (ya, i know) post, I decided to dedicate this week’s playlist to indie bands based in India. I usually do songs from Bollywood movies so this was also a journey of discovery for me. Read on for a summary of my playlist and also the artists. Some, if not all, of… Read More

Girls in bands

It’s been a good month for women and it’s been a good month for music.  Kim Gordon‘s memoir, Girl in a Band, hit bookstore shelves in late February, and this past week Carrie Brownstein announced that her memoir, Hunger Makes Me A Modern Girl, will come out in the fall.  Brownstein recently did a hilarious live interview with Gordon, in which the two discuss the pervasive and engrained… Read More

VIDEO OF THE WEEK: Mitski – “Townie”

Mitski‘s Bury Me At Makeout Creek was one of the most heartbreaking and revealing rock records released in 2014. The album received positive attention from critics and WRMC DJs, but got somewhat lost in the end of the year shuffle.  This April, Makeout Creek is getting a well deserved reissue on the esteemed Don Giovanni… Read More

VIDEO OF THE WEEK: Screaming Females – “Hopeless”

At the tiny bar/music venue called the Monkey House in Winooski, VT, there’s a bathroom stall in the girl’s room that has some graffiti scrawled about Screaming Females frontperson Marissa Paternoster. It reads “M. PATERNOSTER IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL TALENTED LADY I KNOW”  Every time I go to the Monkey House for a show I use this stall, and every time… Read More
