Onsind – Immature

Feminist punks ONSIND released Immature, the first single off their upcoming album We Wilt, We Bloom. It’s about, like, millennial dissent and stuff. 

(All proceeds from the bandcamp single go to Salvage Collective, supporting women (cis, trans & intersex), trans & non-binary survivors & activists)

“Feel It Still” sounds like Portugal. the Man’s version of a Bruno Mars hit while being subtly political. The interactive video makes it more explicit and links to a number of ~progressive causes. The opposite of political sublety is of course the right-wing extremist conspiracy site InfoWars, and they decided to comment on the song.  As Stereogum sums up: 

In the case of that InfoWars scene, there’s a link to AdStrike, a site dedicated to boycotts that hopefully will cause advertisers to stop supporting right-wing sites like InfoWars. The InfoWars article includes reference to “an embedded ‘toolkit’ for social justice warriors” and ends with this delicious kicker: “Che Guevara and Karl Marx are proudly smiling up from hell.”

I assume Infowars thinks the references are insults. Anyway, I’m now even more excited about new music from one of my favorite bands. Thanks, InfoWars.

Patron Saint of Manic Depressives, Clementine von Radics

Thank the stars for this miracle.
For the way we work our broken fingers through the dirt
till we convince the good to grow there.
