Heavenly Creatures: An Interview with Intimatchine

I’ll Eat You Last.

Intimatchine talk to Andrew Darley about how they want their music to make listeners somewhat uncomfortable, and their EP I’ll Eat You Last.

“We are particularly interested in themes of androgyny, pandrogyny, and cross-gender identity as part of our creative content and process. There is an aesthetic and feeling that go with tapping into one another’s social construct.”

Ryan MacGrath, ‘Still Twirling’

Who Needs Love (Like That)?

Ryan MacGrath writes about his experience of growing up gay and becoming an artist. And twirling in his sister’s prom dress.

Gunfight at the Rainbow Corral: Arizona’s “Right to Discriminate” Bill

Open To Everyone.

Arizona’s draconian bill to give people the right to discriminate based on their religious beliefs passed the House and Senate to national disapproval.

“The real beauty of the rally and the activism surrounding all this has been the independent nature of it. According to Mike Shipley, a prominent queer libertarian activist out there, it has been nearly completely divorced from Gay, Inc. and the big money behind it.”

An Innocent Evening of Drinking • Declan Bennett


Released January 1996
An Innocent Evening Of Drinking is folk pop perfection and sits somewhere between Ani DiFranco and Damian Rice but with an underlying pop sensibility.

“This album is essential listening for any fans of well written pop, folk, or just music in general. It’s also the most lyrically arresting album I’ve heard in years, and deserves to be heard for that reason in general.”

Rush


Cert: 15 • USA: 123 min • Exclusive Media, Cross Creek, Imagine Ent • January 27, 2014

Rush ebbs between some decent moments to scenes that would feel more at home in The Fast and the Furious franchise.

“The film is held back by Chris Hemsworth’s performance, which appears deliberate and self-conscious in adopting the cocksure persona. He seems unable to relax into the role, overcompensating to the point where character is superceded by a nauseating caricature.”

St. Vincent • St. Vincent


Released February 24, 2014
St. Vincent has delivered her most accessible, relatable, consistently engaging and sparky album to date. She just keeps getting better.

“The eponymous naming of the album adds credence and a confidence to how much this sounds like it could only be a St. Vincent album. Every second of it could have only come from Annie Clark’s own pen, her lips and guitar.”

LGBT History Month: Stokeley Interview

Pictures from the Sky.

Stokeley talks about his musical influences, his record label and being an out musician.

“Aspects of my sexuality certainly have motivating affects on me, but whether you could call it influence I’m not sure – thus far, at least. It definitely informs what I do, and how and why I do it that way.”
