You may not recognize Bean (yet), but we bet you can’t get her catchy single, “Cops and Robbers,” out of your head. Bean describes her music as pop/soul, but it’s got a retro twist, and it’s inspired by the country tunes she grew up listening to. It all adds up to a refreshingly unique mix. Find out more about this amazing new indie talent (including her full name) and watch her perform right here, via livestream at Rock the Red Kettle on Dec. 7.
The public’s hate for Taylor Swift, though, is still awash in that new love affair scent. Hating Taylor Swift is cool now, because, oh my God, does she have to write a song about every guy she dates?
Well, yeah, she kind of does. Rather, she doesn’t have to, but why in the fuck shouldn’t she? For one thing, relationships are something musicians have been covering in song forever. It seems like a problem here because everyone knows who she’s singing about, but how is that her fault? Lots of easily entertained people want to know that kind of information. Why does that equate to Taylor Swift not getting to write the same kind of songs that so many men and women before her have written?"
