Feministing Jamz: A fall playlist featuring women & queers of color

Sometimes when I go a bit without writing about music, it’s because I’ve been too busy to find something new to post. But most of the time I have the opposite problem – there’s just so much cool new stuff, I don’t even know where to start.

Feministing Jamz Video of the Week: “Pistols At Dawn” by Seinabo Sey

Seinabo Sey’s voice is completely enchanting, and the visuals for “Pistols At Dawn” (after the jump) definitely keep us firmly in enchanted territory. The Swedish-Gambian singer has been killing it this year, and her latest video is glorious. I am especially interested in the relationship between the two women in this video – it’s a little open for interpretation, but what is clear is a sense of deep connection and lady solidarity. What’s not to love?

Feministing Jamz: Jam of the week – Trigger by Maluca

Maluca’s been featured in some of our previous Jamz posts, so you might have noticed that I’m a fan. It had been a bit since she’d put out new music, so when she released a teaser for Trigger this spring I anxiously awaited the full track (while listening to the tidbit provided over and over). Excited as I was to hear her perform it at a Brooklyn Pride party, I’d been itching for the full track until it was finally released in full on Tuesday

Feministing Jamz: Jam of the Week — Chasing Time by Azealia Banks

In 2012, Azealia Banks seemed ready to take over the world. With a consistent string of fresh singles and mixtapes that won many of our hearts, a collaboration with MAC makeup, and promises of an upcoming album – Broke With Expensive Taste - the openly queer rapper was poised to become the next big MC.

Feministing Jamz: Women and queer people of color on state violence

Though conversations on state violence tend to focus on (presumed straight) men, women, queer, and trans folks of color have a huge stake in this conversation. Violence on behalf of the state affects women, queer, and trans folks of color directly in a lot of different ways — not to mention the very real toll of state violence on other members of our communities: our fathers, our brothers, our children. It should come as no surprise, then, when women and queer folks of color address these issues in their music.
