Nicaragua is on its sixth day of violent civil unrest that has left over 30 dead, 47 missing, over 200 injured all with little coverage in mainstream media. If you’re looking for information and tools to help, Andrea Granera has compiled a list of resources as she stays up to date with family in the midst of protests.
This week’s #OnRotation is the perfect soundtrack to summer in the city, confident but laid back and dripping in 90s nostalgia. The Queens-born Moroccan American singer isn’t afraid to bare her truths (“Ain’t too concerned with conforming, fitting in is foreign to a woman like me”) and keep it real about the industry (“I’m terribly offended they’re commending mediocrity / Are we honestly praising this commodity?”), revealing her world through sultry vocals and smooth beats.
#OnRotation this week is U.S. Girls’ ‘In a Poem Unlimited’. Meg Remy’s latest is a subversive character study on women, violence, and power told through big hooks, anthemic choruses, and the nostalgic sounds of glam rock and disco. “As if you couldn’t tell, I’m mad as hell,” sings Meg Remy on M.A.H: “I won’t forget, so why should I forgive? / No, not as long as we both shall live.”
