Chloe Kimes Reclaims Her Own Narrative Through "Thunder" (premiere)

"Since Apothecary, I've formed a band around my solo project, which has developed my songwriting in terms of writing for a bigger sound and louder live shows. We rock out a lot more now. It changed the studio experience, too. We live tracked this as a full band, which was a first for me. 'Thunder' has more of a country sound, but I'm still the folk singer I've always been.

Grimes: Delete Forever

Written the night Lil Peep passed away, “Delete Forever” is pretty and airy, despite tackling the topic of opioid addiction. From Grimes’ fifth album Miss Anthropocene, the tune begins with acoustic guitar (reminiscent of “Wonderwall” by Oasis) before the beat kicks in around the 50-second mark. With country-inflected violin and banjo, the song has a different sound from the Canadian musician’s recent releases, but her …

Tami Neilson Examines Parenthood and  Feminism via "Queenie, Queenie" (premiere + interview)

Have you met her? I've gotten to open for her twice in the last few years. There's always that fear of meeting your heroes. On one of the opening dates, I was in the middle of my set, and I wasn't even sure if she was around. I was singing, and then I heard the gospel backbeat clapping. I looked over and heard this voice go, "Yeeeees!" [Laughs.] She was sitting on a stool in the wings, swaying and raising her arms. My heart burst out of my chest. I went back after my set. She came over an...

Lilly Hiatt Delivers Potent New Track, "P-Town" (premiere + interview)

You also wrote about your sister on "Rae" and about traveling with her while she worked with the homeless on "Some Kind of Drug". She threads through both those songs. I could try to be discreet about that, but I really can't be. She had a job working with a nonprofit here, Open Table Nashville. She was in contact with many homeless people, getting them housing, resources, fighting uphill battles daily. That song emerged after riding around with her to the spots where she helped people and me...
