Valentine’s Day is coming up in only two months! This is my holiday gift to those of you who struggle with gifts: make her a Spotify playlist! And guess what, I’ve already done most of the work for you.
Whether you’re going all in on cuffing season, hunkering down to hibernate, or reliving your goth phase in this leather jacket weather, we’ve got tunes for you.
Londynn B is a lesbian Cardi B by way of Grace Jones — all charisma, swagger, and sex. With the bars to back it up.
It’s fall, so #feelingsfall continues — Claud has some baby gay angst anthems, Heather Mae has all the feelings if you want to cry, and Big Thief gets raw and vulnerable.
A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to photograph Flay’s show in Brooklyn, and – I don’t say this lightly – it was one of the best concerts I’ve been to this year.
In her life, Debbie Friedman did not want to be defined by her sexuality, but there’s something that feels queer about her music. The hidden history, the lyrics about liberation and joy, and, yes, a whole lot about women dancing with timbrels.
Some people just want a nice casual playlist for their Halloween party! So, I decided to split all of the song spooky suggestions into two playlists.
Sometimes you have to make a playlist and dedicate it to the horny tween version of yourself.
Inspired by their vulnerability and the powerful throwback energy of high-school-age Sara and Tegan, we’ve cracked open our own high school diaries to show you our deepest, darkest, gayest secrets and send a little love and perspective back through time on who we’ve been.
Tegan and Sara have mined through their pasts, found the gems, and put together a poignant ode to their past selves. We can live vicariously through their public vulnerability and imagine — without evidence — that if we did the same, we’d be charmed, rather than horrified, by what we found.
It seems like Halloween songs – or, just, spooky, creepy pop songs in general – are having a comeback! What’s your favorite?
There’s something extra special about the High School audiobook, and not just because it features the rough cassette recordings of the songs that make up their new album, or because they read their own chapters with their own voices, or because they interview each other for maybe the first time ever. It just feels real and ever so soft.
Singer-songwriter Tove Lo dropped her newest album, Sunshine Kitty, on September 20th, and celebrated with an intimate album release show on New York City’s Lower East Side.
“Many of Lafemmebear’s songs are full of righteous anger. This one is full of righteous caring, righteous love, righteous affection.”
Julia Nunes has been self-producing her music for almost ten years, and her newest album “Ughwow” is a drastic change from her old sound in the best way possible. We talk about the work of being a human and how that’s showing up in her creative work lately.
Young M.A finally dropped her debut album, and babyyyy, it’s got flavor. This is the soundtrack to my black queer love story.
Whether you had a #hotgirlsummer or not, it’s time for #feelingsfall.
“So many women were able to see their music icons in a lineup where they weren’t the minority. That just doesn’t happen at large scale mainstream festivals.”
I was surprised by some really inventive indie pop this month!
I don’t want to put any songs on my breakup playlist that any of my exes have used, or are using, to woo their new girlfriends.
