    The Venus plays Paper Crane in St. Petersburg, Florida on June 29, 2018.Camren Meier On July 24, St. Petersburg rock band The Venus will release a sophomore full-length that feels half a world away from the Joe Meek-inspired ‘60s space-rock on its 2018 self-titled debut.

    The lockdown has made many of us step back and take stock. The sudden, seismic change to our lifestyles, the narrowing of our horizons, the inability to escape our families: It's all prompted a wave of self-reflection and re-evaluation. Taylor Swift was not immune. In April, she posted a photo to Instagram with the caption: "Not a lot going on at the moment." Twelve weeks later, she's written and recorded a entirely new album, Folklore - a record that fills the void left by a summer of cancelled festival appearances, including a headline slot at Glastonbury. Fittingly, it's a low-key, sombre record, looking back at old flames and old mistakes. The Technicolor exuberance of last year's Lover...

    Hello, and welcome to day, I dunno, 139 of Covid-19 lockdown. March 152nd. Revolution is in the air, and celebrities—the people who would normally be playing festivals or releasing big summer movies right now—have been left to their own devices. For many, that means subjecting themselves to awkward Zoom interviews and Instagram Lives; for others, it’s spending far too much time on social media.

It’s the first album in nearly 14 years from the country music group. It also comes at a major moment for the group who publicly announced their new name in the wake of America’s reckoning with racism. They said at the time that they wanted to “meet this moment,” in the country’s history.

    The Chicks, formerly known as Dixie, are back with an explosive new album—their first in 14 years—and with it a reminder to the haters that they are still country music’s resident feminist renegades.  Last month, amidst promotions for their album Gaslighter, the Chicks announced their name change with a music video drop and little additional fanfare. The video accompanied the release of their third single from Gaslighter, a protest anthem called “March March.” Presumably an effort to distance themselves from the racist connotations of the word “Dixie” amidst the resurgence of Black Lives Matter protests, the move was long overdue for the otherwise unabashedly progressive girl group made up of Natalie Maines, Emily Strayer, and Martie Maguire.  Though they released...

    The Chicks’ first new album in 14 years, Gaslighter, is out Friday (July 17th).

    Legendary chiptune composer Hirokazu “Chip” Tanaka just released a new solo album, and the accompanying music video for the song “Hammerhead Shark Song” is extremely fitting. Tanaka is best known for the soundtracks to classic games like Metroid, Mother, and Donkey Kong, and the video — directed by Toby Fox, creator of the retro-infused RPG Undertale — maintains that vibe while adding in a hefty dose of surrealism. The black-and-white video looks a bit like a 16-bit era game, with Tanaka walking to a performance where he’s joined, naturally, by some hammerhead sharks onstage. Things only get stranger after that: there are walking UFOs, floating faces, and all manner of odd imagery. The fact that it resembles a video game...

    In a long-distant era of discord suspi­ciously similar to our own, Natalie Maines, the singer for the group that was, until last month, known as the Dixie Chicks, lit a forest fire with an offhand insult about George W.

But listening to her now, all you can think is: Man … they got off easy. Because on the newly renamed Chicks’ first album in 14 years, Maines savages her ex in ways that make it seem as if she were mincing words or pulling punches back when she was taking on mere presidents.
