Still from the music video  for the song, Somos Sur. The song is a collaboration between Chilean MC, Ana Tijoux (pictured in the back), and Palestinian MC, Shadia Mansour (pictured in front of Tijoux). Somos Sur is a powerful track establishing solidarity between Latin America and Palestine for their independence from imperialist and colonizing forces. Ana Tijoux is known for bringing a message of social consciousness through her music, speaking in the past about immigration, LGBT, political corruption, and Latin American issues. Her support for a free Palestine in her music is just one more reason Tijoux is amazing.
Watch the visually stunning video for Somos Sur here.

Digable Planets was teachin’ you pro-choice, but white feminists only know about Bikini Kill.

"And there was Nikki
Lookin’ some kind of sad with tears fallin’ from her eyes
She sat me down, and dug my frown and began to run it down
“You remember my boyfriend Sid, that fly kid who I love
Well our love was often a verb and spontaneity has brought a third
But due to our youth an economic state, we wish to terminate
About this we don’t feel great, but baby, that’s how it is
But the feds have dissed me
They ignore and dismiss me
The pro-lifers harass me outside the clinic
And call me a murderer, now that’s hate
So needless to say, we’re in a mental state of debate”
“Hey, beautiful bird” I said, digging her somber mood
“The fascists are some heavy dudes
They don’t really give a damn about life
They just don’t want a woman to control her body
Or have the right to choose
But baby that ain’t nothin’
They just want a male finger on the button
Because if you say war, they will send them to die by the score
Aborting mission should be your volition
But if Souter and Thomas have their way
You’ll be standing in line unable to get Welfare while they’ll be out
Hunting and fishing
It has always been around, it will always have a niche
But they’ll make it a privilege, not a right
Accessible only to the rich
Hey, Pro-lifers should dig themselves
Because life doesn’t stop after birth
And to a child born to the unprepared
It might even just get worse
The situation would surely change if they were to find themselves in it
Supporters of the H-Bomb, and fire-bombing clinics
What type of shit is that? Orwellian, in fact
If Roe v. Wade was overturned, would not the desire remain intact
Leaving young girls to risk their healths
And doctors to botch, and watch as they kill themselves
I don’t want to sound macabre
But hey, isn’t it my job
To lay it on the masses and get them off their asses
To fight against these fascists
So, whatever you decide, make that move with pride
Sid will be there and so will I”

Hey, don’t write yourself off yet
It’s only in your head you feel left out or looked down on
Just try your best, try everything you can
And don’t you worry what they tell themselves when you’re away

It just takes some time
Little girl you’re in the middle of the ride
Everything, everything will be just fine
Everything, everything will be alright, alright

Hey, you know they’re all the same
You know you’re doing better on your own, so don’t buy in
Live right now, yeah, just be yourself
It doesn’t matter if it’s good enough for someone else

It just takes some time
Little girl you’re in the middle of the ride
Everything, everything will be just fine
Everything, everything will be alright, alright

It just takes some time
Little girl you’re in the middle of the ride
Everything, everything will be just fine
Everything, everything will be alright, alright

Hey, don’t write yourself off yet
It’s only in your head you feel left out or looked down on
Just do your best, do everything you can
And don’t you worry what the bitter hearts are gonna say

It just takes some time
Little girl you’re in the middle of the ride
Everything, everything will be just fine
Everything, everything will be alright, alright

It just takes some time
Little girl you’re in the middle of the ride
Everything, everything will be just fine
Everything, everything will be alright, alright

Landscape (Demo); Ceremonials; Florence + The Machine

She wants the silence but fears the solitude
She wants to be alone and together with you
So she ran to the lighthouse, hoped that it would help her see
She saw that the lighthouse had been washed out to sea

Do every stupid thing that makes you feel alive
Do every stupid thing to try to drive the dark away
Let people call you crazy for the choices that you make
Climb limits past the limits
Jump in front of trains all day

And stay alive
Just stay alive

What does it sound like when a crew of Native American DJs from Ottawa decide to mix traditional Cree & Ojibwe songs with club beats?

Brain-meltingly badass, apparently.

Heard this via Said the Gramophone, but it’s also been getting some radio play down here in Austin.

Hear more of A Tribe Called Red at http://www.electricpowwow.com/.

My brain really did just melt…I NEED TO GET THIS AS AN MP3!


Check out the site, donate, and download — there’s a whole album, and it’s amazing.

this is wonderful,

This is fucking AWESOME

ISBN 978-1-935950-05-9 Softcover 6″ x 9″, 240pp Coming September 2012
What Are You Doing Here? investigates how black women musicians and fans navigate the metal, hardcore, and punk music genres that are regularly thought of as inclusive spaces and centered on a community spirit, but fail to block out the race and gender issues that exist in the outside world.
“We can neither reflectively choose our color identity nor downplay its social significance simply by willing it to be unimportant… but our color no more binds us to send a predetermined group message to our fellow human beings than our language binds us to convey predetermined thoughts.”—Amy Gutmann
“Sometimes I think nothing is simple but the feeling of pain.”—Lester Bangs
I’ll be the first to admit that, like any other book, What Are You Doing Here? is partly self-serving. I wanted to find other black women like me: metal, hardcore, and punk fans and musicians that were rabid about the music and culture and adamant about asserting their rightful place as black women within those scenes. I wanted to find other women who put aside the cultural baggage that dictates that we must listen to certain musical styles, and simply enjoy the music that influenced us, not just as black women, but as individuals who grew up in an era when, thanks to technology, a large variety of music is accessible and available to everyone. I found many black women and have shared their stories, but I also realize there is still a lot of work to be done.

Sweet! Looking forward to reading this.

I WANT THIS YES

aaaaahhhhhh yeeeessssssss

You were left with nothing as a child, now that’s a lot to carry
You’ve been empty handed all your life, a heavy weight to carry
Things could be different but it wouldn’t be the same
You wouldn’t be the man I love without this weight

Cause all these years feeling small and misplaced
The only lonely man on Noah’s Ark
Yeah, all these years dealing with radioactive waste
Has made you glow in the dark
Don’t you know you glow in the dark?
Don’t you know you glow?

You’ve been digging graves since we first met, you’ve got a lot to bury
From the empty closets in your head, a heavy weight to carry
Things could be better but it wouldn’t feel this good
I wouldn’t change a thing about you if I could

Cause all the years feeling small and misplaced
The only lonely man on Noah’s Ark
Yeah all these years dealing with radioactive waste
Has made you glow in the dark
Don’t you know you glow in the dark?
Don’t you know you glow?
You glow
You glow, glow
You glow, glow

Daniel Versus The World - Closet (Song For Harvey Milk)

"From my currently untitled Angry Gay Songs E.P. that I’m working on. It’s called ‘Closet (Song For Harvey Milk)’ and it’s an angry letter to closeted celebrities who have a duty to be role models to the young LGBT people who need them. It’s also an ode to one of my favourite Angry Gays, Harvey Milk, and inspired by another, journalist Patrick Strudwick."
