Trans Trenderz releases “All On Me”

It’s coming on Christmas. We’re all sitting around in the seclusion of our own homes, enduring the daily barrage of over lush holiday regalia, trying to capture some semblance of spirit, as we watch our account balances dwindle below zero. Whatever. It’s time for a kick in the pants. And I have just the thing: an unbridled salvo of sexual empowerment in the form of Lady Londyn’s “All On Me.”

Not for the faint of heart. But screw your heart. The song, and its accompanying video, that actually kicks off with a warning that it CAN CAUSE SEIZURES, is a queer anthem that speaks to the liberation of trans feminine bodies. It is like nothing you’ve seen in recent memory. Meant to remind womxn that their bodies are theirs to own and be proud of, “All on Me” is a boastful and cocky commentary to what it is to be desired as a Black Trans woman.

New Music Video: Roots of Creation Releases “Standing On The Moon” Music Video Today

The new single was released earlier this year in celebration of Jerry Garcia’s birthday week. Roots of Creation honored the rock legend by performing the new song at the inaugural critically acclaimed by Rolling Stone, live-streamed Dazed Between festival which saw 2.5 million viewers. Dazed Between Festival was a fundraiser for the Grateful Dead’s non-profit the Rex Foundation. “Standing on the Moon” debuted, along with a few other RoC songs, on the festival Spotify curated playlist. Reflecting back, Brett Wilson, founder, guitarist and lead vocalist for Roots of Creations states, “‘Standing on the Moon’ holds a special place in my heart. I always have to choke back tears when I perform it. If I close my eyes when I belt it out I always envision Jerry Garcia standing on the moon looking down at humanity and smiling. If you look closely at the album cover, you might find him doing just that.”


Rising Brooklyn, Caribbean-bred singer / songwriter Alex Mali releases the official visual for “5 Star” from her EP Phenom out now. Keeping the theme of women empowerment anthems that promote standing in power and freedom of expression, this new release is a perfect follow up to the “Fighting Words” visual she dropped last month. “Women are more powerful than ever and we just got the first female VP, who happens to be of color! says Alex. “Women have been challenged for years and our strength and ability to persevere is boundless. This song and video represents that strength. Being aggressive doesn’t make you angry and being emotional doesn’t make you crazy. So I am super excited for this one.”

Out Today from Rare Monk: “Statistic Vandals”

Themes throughout “Statistic Vandals”: “Data collection, aggregation, and application to ad targeting/warrantless surveillance meets a new foe: a madman who intentionally googles things with no purchase intent whatsoever, who follows, then unfollows without cause, who encourage opsec for the heck of it. Destroyer of datasets, forcer of manual outlier removal, analysts shake their fists in fury before existing no more.”
