There were a lot of very strong albums in the Sad White Girl creative space to vibe with while eating parmesan crisps in bed and watching Bon Appetit videos. Which one defined your 2019? What does it tell us about the year to come?
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.
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.
“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.
Whether you had a #hotgirlsummer or not, it’s time for #feelingsfall.
I was surprised by some really inventive indie pop this month!
If you’re looking for Cutting Room Floor on social media, you’ll find them under the moniker “Sad Gay Band.” It’s sort of a joke, it’s also not an exaggeration – it might even be an understatement, both with regard to being gay and to being sad. Sink/Swim is their latest album, and it’s been over three years in the making.
I’m rediscovering how much I love simple, catchy, fun pop music. There’s some other solid rock, folk, and R&B this month, though, too!
I’m interested in Pride as a time for angry resistance! As such, I’ve got a bunch of new queer rock music to share.
I feel like we have some deeper, more interesting, more contemplative stuff here at Queer Your Ears this month.
It’s a great time to be queer and/or trans music fan! There was SO MUCH incredible music to cover this month.
We’ve got a good mix of tunes here this month: some hip-hop and EDM if you’re ready to bounce off that winter chill, some intense vibes and chill folk if you still want to hibernate for a bit — and of course a bunch in between.
Here’s a bunch of rapid-fire reviews to cover albums, songs, and EPs that may have escaped your notice in 2018.
This month, we have some new queer indie love songs! Too late for your V-Day playlists, but still always welcome.
This month, there are some wintry tracks for relaxing and looking out the window at a rainy day, as well as some upbeat stuff for breaking out of the doldrums. And a bunch of stuff in between.
Here are some summer tunes for political Oakland barbecues, late night sweaty house parties, or, if you’re like me, enjoying your bed on a Saturday instead of going out.
Some of these songs and/or albums are dark, slow, and ponderous, great for really sinking into your mattress. Most of them, though, are cute, sweet, upbeat tracks that helped me keep going when it seemed like I was going to never leave my house again.
It’s a great time for gay music, like this sweet single about a gal loving her gal pal!
