So I threw a Twitter tantrum the other day, after reading what this piece o’ shit had to say about girls winning at punk. I mean, I know and really like a lot of the women on this list. But the fact is that he (and other white music writers) would rather defend fucking Miley Cyrus but completely ignore bad-ass women of color who make punk music that’s just too threatening for them. I SEE YOU ALL.

Why You Need To Love Lorde

At just sixteen, Lorde is incredibly self-aware and calculated. She isn’t even hugely famous yet and understands that no matter what, people look up to you when you’re a celebrity. I find that very refreshing.

PLAYLIST: READY TO START

This time of year is so focused on reinvention and setting goals, which can cause a lot of unnecessary pressure. But if you want a fresh start or change yourself–even a small part of yourself–do it for you and only for you. 

I don’t believe in going through important transitions without a soundtrack to remember it by. So here’s 10 songs to help you get motivated about a new beginning.

Arcade Fire - Ready To Start | Moonpools & Caterpillars - Colossal Youth | She & Him - Don’t Look Back | The Cardigans - Rise And Shine | Destiny’s Child - So Good | Kanye West - Good Life | Santigold - Disparate Youth | The Noisettes - Don’t Give Up | Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Turn Into | Patrick Wolf - Land’s End

PLAYLIST: SUMMERTIME SADNESS

The other day when I was browsing through my dash, I came across a post that described August as “the Sunday of summer.” I see what they mean: August has always been full of a weird sense of slow restlessness. 

But summer’s not over yet, okay? There’s still time to do whatever you’ve been procrastinating on, but how about a last hurrah? Here’s a playlist dedicated to summer’s end: The flings, the unforgettable nights and the lazy afternoons. It’s time to relish the last dregs of summer sun and summer memories.

 Tracklist: Best Coast - Summer Mood | Widowspeak - Half Awake | Lana Del Rey - Summertime Sadness | CSS - Beautiful Song | Arctic Monkeys - The Hellcat Spangled Shalalala | The Beatles - I’m Only Sleeping | Clap Your Hands Say Yeah - Blue Turning Gray | The Strokes - What Ever Happened | Regina Spektor - Summer In The City | Dog Is Dead - Glockenspiel Song

PLAYLIST: YOU CHEATED, YOU LIED
