Big Thief released "U.F.O.F." on this day in 2019. Written when the band was in the studio recording U.F.O.F., Adrianne Lenker wrote Cattails late one night after everyone else had gone to bed. The song is inspired by Lenker's childhood memories growing up in Minnesota. According to Lenker, the “Violet” in the song is a reference to her great-grandmother, who played music throughout her life and picked up electric bass when she was in her 80s. https://bit.ly/3y8Ta2U

"I'm a woman, what you see." -- "“Woman” came like a bolt out of the blue when we were in the studio. We did a first pass where I was blurting unintelligible words and Danger Mouse and I were like “Dang! That was intense. What’s that word I keep saying? Woman.” The atmosphere was volatile with it being just after the election. A lot of people felt helpless like you do when you’re a scared kid looking for assurance that everything is gonna be alright." -- Karen O https://bit.ly/39z42wR

Working Men's Club just released this new single from their sophomore album, "Fear Fear," due for release on July 15th. --- This song, ‘Circumference’ is “built on the kind of crystalline, heaven sent synth lines that Depeche Mode or The Human League used to trade in” according to a press release. “I like the contrast of it being happy, uplifting music and really dark lyrics. It’s not a minimal record, certainly compared to the first one. That’s because there’s been a lot more going on that needed to be said," says frontman Syd Minsky-Sargeant. https://bit.ly/3F9oUX4 https://workingmensclub.bandcamp.com/

"I'd love to hear some Janelle Monae or Sleater Kinney if you have time. Thanks" - Larissa Erykah Badu joins Janelle Monáe on Q.U.E.E.N., which according to Afropunk, "is loaded with subtle imagery and intriguing subtext—alluding to historical Black iconography and examining the paradox of museum culture—while playing with the ideas of Afro-Futurism and the past being reignited to usher us into a future with a multitude identities and equality, which, according to Monae, is more than just being added to the equation, but a fully equal, valued member of society." https://bit.ly/3oyvQ9Q Watch the music video here: https://youtu.be/tEddixS-UoU https://www.jmonae.com/
