    I had this same realization a couple years ago when I first came across Phoebe Bridgers, and subsequently boygenius. Since then, I've definitely listened to more female led music than male. They've just been doing it better overall for a few years now imo.

    There's almost too many good female fronted bands in the guitar-oriented indie genre I like right now. First I heard Soccer Mommy and I was like whoa, no one is fucking with this. Then I heard Snail Mail and I was like damn, this is right there with it. Then I heard Petal and I was like this is also checking the boxes. The Beths, Beach Bunny, Best Coast, Tennis, Boygenius/Phoebe Bridgers

    their indefinite hiatus a while back seemed odd. Disappointing that yet another band I love(d) failed to uphold the values they should be expected to maintain

    fuck Kevin Krauter

    is that who it is? the phrasing in the articles is a little odd saying it wasnt a current member, but then saying current lineup included him.

    disappointing either way.

    No but he's now been proven to be a fraud who says one thing on social media but then stands for something else in real life

  21. I’m honestly surprised this didn’t come out earlier. If I recall correctly, there were some accusations against him with pretty damning evidence last year. Guy seems like a legitimate monster who should be in jail.

    if there’s one thing I learned from my time in music it’s that most of these guys do some pretty questionable shit. but yeah there have been rumors about Avi for years

    Beach Bunny, Country Westerns and My Morning Jacket are my top 3 of the year so far followed by STRFKR, Futurebirds and the Beths. I was ready to add Hoops to the list but :tumbleweed:

    I think Bully is my favorite female led group. Feels Like is an all-time album for me

    Alvvays, The Courtneys, Colleen Green, Ex Hex, Japanese Breakfast, Julia Holter, Nots, Snail Mail and Angel Olsen probably runners up. Beach House is an obvious one

    Mary Timony on guitar >>>

    The Sheer Mag compilation LP is epic
