Laneia’s Team Pick: Listen to Tune-Yards

The only time I’ll ever send you to MySpace is for super awesome music — promise! Get your ass over there and listen to Merrill of the band tUnE-YaRdS sing “FIYA” and “NEWS” (and others, of course, but those two are #sogreat). Love this line: “I’ve got news for you, honey / I get pregnant with birds that sing / prettier than you”

Before you go! It takes funding to keep this publication by and for queer women and trans people of all genders running every day. And A+ members keep the majority of our site free for everyone. Still, 99.9% of our readers are not members. A+ membership starts at just $4/month. If you're able to, will you join A+ and keep Autostraddle here and working for everyone?

Laneia is the Executive Editor and founding member of Autostraddle, and you're the reason she's here.

Laneia has written 914 articles for us.
