Jenny Lewis Wrote Her Album, On The Line, While Dealing With A Major Trauma

There’s a problematic narrative that keeps springing up in music, where critics take credit away from the woman at the center of a project and shift it to her male collaborators. It’s annoying and unfair — and women have been stamping it out. Jenny Lewis, who has been a working musician and songwriter for 20 years, is well past the point of staying quiet about it.This shift in perspective is, Jenny Lewis recognizes, something in the zeitgeist. Women are giving themselves more credit, asserting ...

This Guy Is The Hottest Songwriter In Pop

Many songs on Juice WRLD's Death Race For Love, the reigning #1 album in America, made me laugh out loud. A track called "HeMotions," for instance, is already hilarious coming from an emo-informed SoundCloud sing-rapper who made his name on misogynistic self-pity, even before you even factor in lyrics like these: "Going through … More »

Lizzo + Missy Elliott: Tempo

Lizzo and Missy Elliott have teamed up for an absolute banger with “Tempo.” With a beat that’s reminiscent of an early 2000s hip-hop club anthem, it’s a celebration of thick women: “Slow songs, they for skinny hoes / Can’t move all of this here to one of those / I’m a thick bitch, I need tempo.” The third track from Lizzo‘s Cuz I Love You, …

Lizzo – “Tempo” (Feat. Missy Elliott)

One of the best and worst aspects of SXSW is the ability to wander from showcase to showcase. Sometimes, on nights when you're presented with an embarrassment of riches, you end up seeing a fraction of multiple great performances rather than sticking it out for a whole concert. So it went last Thursday night. After … More »

On Black Girl Magic and Georgia Anne Muldrow's Latest, 'Overload'

None The song "Vital Transformation" is solemn yet expansive, austere yet hopeful. It floats along, kickdrum and handclap accents punctuating the lyrics instead of marking four-on-the-floor. The song itself a swirl, it begins with the swirling, layered incantation, "transforming changing higher spiraling higher", repeated three times, along with the insistence, "it's vital". The lyrics read like stanzas of poetry on the page, but take on a warm, relatable quality when their author, Georgia Anne...
