This is my love letter to all the queer musicians out there, making art and kicking ass. If there's an artist you think I should know about, please let me know, I love new music! (I also reblog/post on general queer and trans stuff, radical news, and instances when the world is fucked, and when it isn't!)

 

Corey Orbison. They will kindly fuck your shit up.
This UK based band is an absolute mess, but in a good way. Like the lovechild of Limp Wrist and Drunk Granny, with the soul of Bikini Kill, they are abrasive, noisy, and sloppy. One reviewer has said they sound like they’re “in the midst of figuring out how to play everything.” Things are out of tune, out of time, discordant and beautifully fucked in every way possible. The lead singer has an otherworldly yelp that is near indecipherable, at times verging on animal like. The songs available on their myspace sound like they were recorded in a garbage can.
And I love it all. There is just something about how raw it all sounds. It shouldn’t work, it’s almost inconceivable that it could, but somehow it just does. This is not for everyone. In fact, many of you might be wondering if I am out of my mind for liking it. I have a thing for scrappy, raw punk in all its forms. Corey Orbison falls right under that umbrella.
