INTERVIEW: KELIANNE STANKUS CHATS ABOUT HER NEW PODCAST AND STAYING POSITIVE

Rising influencer Kelianne Stankus wears many hats. As a recent member of both social media collectives The Hype House and Triller Compound, Stankus has rapidly made a name for herself on the group's preferred platform of TikTok, amassing close to 10 million followers, with another cool 2 million on Instagram. Before that viral fame, Stankus…

ST. VINCENT’S “DADDY’S HOME” IS POIGNANT, UNCOMFORTABLE, AND ABSOLUTELY SUBLIME

If pop sensations like Miley Cyrus, Madonna, and more recently Billie Eilish are the mothers of mainstream creative reinvention, then St. Vincent is their indie equivalent. An unfair statement perhaps, since the genre-bending but always guitar-heavy music of Annie Clark has broken far more into the mainstream than many of her contemporaries. But the point…

CODY FROST EXUDES A POLISHED PUNK SPIRIT WITH NEW SINGLE “HIGH/BYE”

Fans of The Voice UK will surely recognize (and likely already follow) the pop talent that is Cody Frost. Since the now-17 year old made her blind audition debut on the program in 2016 and subsequently cemented herself as a fan favorite, she has honed her image as a bona fide electropop and punk artist.…

THE HITS (AND A FEW MISSES) FROM THE 2021 GRAMMY AWARDS

Let’s address the elephant in the room first, and for once we aren’t talking about the pandemic. The Grammys have always, and particularly in the last few years, been riddled with issues relating to racism, bribery, an out-of-touch academy, and an unspoken pay-to-play structure that deeply disadvantages many artists without the proper connections. Complaints and…

SOPHIE WAS A PIONEER IN EVERY SENSE OF THE WORD

On Saturday morning, groundbreaking experimental pop artist and producer Sophie Xeon, more known mononymously as SOPHIE tragically died in what her publicist described as a “terrible accident.” According to the official statement, “true to her spirituality, [SOPHIE] had climbed up to watch the full moon and accidentally slipped and fell. She will always be here with…

THE TOP 10 ALBUMS OF 2020

Despite, or perhaps because of, the tumultuous and emotionally taxing behemoth that has been 2020, this year has actually been pretty good for music. In the wake of a global pandemic, a reckoning of racial justice reform, a slogging American presidential election, and a dozen more grievances, musicians found themselves affected by 2020 in multitude…

WHAT MAKES A QUEER ICON?

A cursory Google search yields few resources attempting to accurately define what makes a queer icon, well, iconic. And there’s a good reason for that. Whats makes a queer icon is at the same time simple and incredibly difficult to define. One one hand, its is easy to use blanket terms like “glamorous” or “camp”…

THE MUSIC ARTISTS THAT DEFINE GEN-Z

In a follow up to our previous article  “The TV Shows that Define the Gen-Z Experience” we felt it was great timing to continue the conversation with a focus on music. If the defining characteristic of the collective Gen-Z mindset on television is breaking boundaries by ignoring them entirely, then what identifies Gen-Z music as…

This article is part of a new Untitled Magazine series called “Expectation vs. Reality,” where we examine the hype surrounding popular projects before and after release, and examine whether they ultimately meet the general public’s expectations. The first part, "Expectation," was written prior to release, while the second part below, "Reality," was written after release.  …

ORVILLE PECK, LIL NAS X, AND THE DECISION TO EXPRESS QUEERNESS

  Orville Peck, groundbreaking LGBTQ+ country artist, is the newest in a long line of celebrities to be labeled “private” or “enigmatic,” and the first some time to truly embody the term. Pop culture in many ways seems to have lost their grasp on the definition of the word “enigmatic” in the last two decades.…

BILLIE EILISH WILL TAKE JAMES BOND INTO THE NEW AGE

James Bond is danger. James Bond is action. James Bond is suave. He stands with a gun in one hand, a supermodel in the other, and a smirk on his face. Despite a 24-film span, the Bond formula has remained largely the same: defeat the villain, get the girl, look damn good doing it. Textbook.…

ARGENTINIAN POP QUEEN JUANA MOLINA DEFINES PARAGUAY PUNK IN EXCLUSIVE VIDEO FOR KABINETT

The music of Latin America - particularly that of Argentina – encompasses a rich culture steeped in history, and of a people descended from all parts of the globe; from sub-Saharan Africa to the European continents. Contemporary Music in Argentina (although carrying the distinctive syncopated rhythms, up tempo beats, and studio manufactured sounds of American…

BILLIE EILISH AND THE END OF GENRE

The aesthetic of Billie Eilish is glittering darkness. She mixes lyrics about hopelessness with bright synthesizers and radio-friendly hooks. Her rumination on the macabre has led some critics to declare that she is part of the second iteration of the goth subculture first popularized in the 1980s, but the label doesn’t quite fit. Surprisingly, she…
