This is my love letter to all the queer musicians out there, making art and kicking ass. If there's an artist you think I should know about, please let me know, I love new music! (I also reblog/post on general queer and trans stuff, radical news, and instances when the world is fucked, and when it isn't!)

 

Sourpatch (RIP) made a documentary/retrospective/tour/kind of everything DVD, and last year they put it on youtube. Somehow I missed it, but I finally watched it and it is lovely and adorable, and you should probably watch it too if you haven’t.

THIS IS NOT A DRILL, NEW SLEATER-KINNEY SONG.

"Bury Our Friends"

They’re also going on tour this winter, because sometimes the universe is kind and DOES love us.

WASI (formerly We Are/She Is)-“And The World”

I know I ask this every couple of months but can someone tell me why we aren’t talking about Cakes Da Killa like… constantly?

so there was this rumor on a vinyl forum that the sleater-kinney box set would come with a 7” of new music, and today twitter basically confirmed it.

we did it, you guys. it’s real. it’s happening.

1/20/15 GET PUMPED

edit: stereogum is on it tho i scooped ‘em by a few :)

edit 2: there’s cover art for a new album (?!) called “no cities to love” and the name of the 7” song is “bury our friends”

And, like I said on Facebook, albums come out on Tuesdays in the US and 1/20/15 is a Tuesday. FUCK. YES.

We signed more guys’ chests than you’d expect—it was totally a flipping of the roles. We were big fans of Led Zeppelin—Robert Plant and Jimmy Page were the ultimate sex symbols, and we wanted to do our own version of that. If guys were allowed to use their sexuality, why weren’t we? We were trying to be provocative while also getting cut down for being too sexual. But people didn’t take us seriously as a real rock band—we were just dismissed because we were girls. - Joan Jett
