Playlist: New Pop Feminism
In the 1990s TLC, Destiny’s Child, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Missy Elliot, Xena: Warrior Princess, and the Spice Girls introduced an entire generation to messages of girl power and gender equality.
Today, new art and artists have taken up that call, from Beyonce to Orange Is The New Black, from Girls to Lorde. Theirs is not the feminism of the 90s; greater attention is paid to issues of intersectionality between gender, race, sexuality, and class, and the influx of the internet and fragmentations in media and culture have changed the feminist landscape. But many of the underlying issues are the same, now told through new voices.
Pop culture can be problematic, but it’s also how a lot of people are first introduced to important ideas. With this week’s playlist, we pay tribute to the feminists making waves here and now, ushering in a new generation of girl power.
HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!! :)

Look, I find Game of Thrones to be pretty much perfect as it is. I’m not one to mess with greatness but I’m glad The New Orleans Swamp Donkeys dared.
Calling this a jazz cover of the title sequence song of Game of Thrones is an understatement. The use of brass is clever—a kind of contained chaos , the tonal variations are skillful. The upbeat transformation of the song still encompasses the visceral reaction the show evokes. Just a different one.
And those solos? Stunning.
I’m just into it.
