Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Studio Soundtracks: The Coathangers
You know those weirdos who pack up their hemp pants and tie-dye everything into a multi-colored Guatemalan backpack and leave their whole lives to follow Phish around the country? I never understood those people (partly because I left hemp accessories behind in the 6th grade, partly because I have a nagging attachment to responsibility, but mostly because man, does that band suck). That is, not until I first saw The Coathangers play, and decided that I would have no problem ditching out on reality to follow them around the globe (but like, not in a stalkery way, okay?). The Atlanta-based all-girl punk outfit has been touring and playing shows for just shy of a decade, never slowing or losing any of the hell-raising energy that make each and every single one of their performances one to remember.
Monday, August 11, 2014 Studio Soundtracks: Meg Myers Heads to Lollapalooza
Pop and EDM and rap are great, but if your ears are asking for something with a little more mood, direct your attention to Meg Myers. The Los Angeles-based artist is often compared to Fiona Apple and Alanis Morrissette, turning out music that is as dark as it is mesmerizing, with captivating music videos to match. Her video for her newly released “Desire” touches on rebellion, brutal honesty, and some pretty serious levitation. Last week, Meg headed out to Chicago to spread some of her magic at Lollapalooza and she was kind enough to snap some photos for us!
