When she isn’t in class at Northeastern or creating doodles for her mom to embroider, Boston-based Sidney Gish is writing, playing, recording and mixing her own music in her dorm room – and she has a 7.7 Pitchfork rating on her latest release ‘NO DOGS ALLOWED’ to show for it. We had the chance to talk with Sidney about her writing process, identity, and – of course – Carrie Brownstein.
Sticky-sweet but never cloying, Pearl and the Oysters’ eponymous debut album is equal parts fantastical space opera and cult 60’s beach movie. We were honored to have the chance to chat with the band about their debut album and what comes next.
If you were to envision LA-based duo The Marías solely from their sound, you would end up in a 70s lounge with velvet booths, dim lighting and smoke in the air, somewhere in the streets of Los Angeles. Modern Girls met up with María and Josh shortly before their very first New York City show to dish on the band’s music and their own past lives.
Modern Girls talks music, fast food, and Criss Angel with Justine Dorsey and Kassie White of the OC-based glitter rockers ‘Precious Kid’. Be sure to catch Precious Kid next time they play your area – they’re one of our favorite bands to watch and one of the most fun groups making music today.
Vampire Weekend’s Chris Tomson talks to us about his New York faves and his new solo record under the name “Dams of the West”. There’s also some necessary discourse about “Boss Baby” and One Direction, because we have a duty to bring you the hardest-hitting internet journalism. Hot dams!
Meet Lindsey Jordan, the mastermind between up-and-coming Baltimore lo-fi trio Snail Mail. Snail Mail have been favorites of the Baltimore/DC music scene for a while now, with Lindsey balancing high school (!) with tour. She’s basically like a punk Hannah Montana at this point.
Meet Arrow De Wilde, the force of nature behind glam rockers Starcrawler. Our friend Megan-Magdalena had the chance to chat with Arrow about her inspiration, Catholic school, and how she found the confidence to put on the best live show in music today.
Meet Yasmine Panah – our favorite NYC music business babe. She started working at Cult Records when she was only 18 (!) and now she’s killin’ it as a campaign manager at Weller Media Agency. As our #moderngirlcrush of the week, we talked to her about her career, where the music industry is headed, groupies, and her current music faves. We can’t get enough of Yasmine – read on to see why!
