Right now two of Autostraddle’s favorite bands – The Cliks and Hunter Valentine – are making their way across the USA in the ‘Guts ‘N Glory’ tour. We’re giving you the chance to win a double pass and to go backstage and meet both bands.
This week in the news, Erykah Badu gets naked & fined, Slash premieres his new album and Tegan & Sara, Kelis and Hunter Valentine premiere new videos. Also in the fix: Madonna tops the pops, Evelyn Evelyn is released and so is Kaki King’s new signature guitar. Oh and An Horse want you to hear their new remix track.
In her Audiostraddle debut, contributing writer Corey Crossfield chats to Kiyomi McCloskey, lead singer from the Toronto-based female rock trio Hunter Valentine. Fresh from showcasing at New York’s CMJ, Kiyomi talks about the band’s beginnings, their upcoming EP “Lessons From The Late Night”, and how she writes the songs that can tear your heart apart or help you piece it back together.
