The next time you open a copy of Spin magazine, there’s one thing you won’t be seeing: record reviews. That’s because the magazine’s editors have decided that they’ll no longer be devoting print editorial space to reviewing music. Instead, they’ll be tackling the difficult task of telling readers what to listen to via a new Twitter account: @SPINreviews.

And here’s what Spin’s senior editor Chris Weingarten had to say about it…

“Feminism is not only for women. It’s something everyone can participate in, and evolve together, as the first step in the right direction. I see feminism as a tool to achieve … balance and peace. … Patriarchy is a fundamental imbalance underlying society. And it’s one we rarely address because it’s so universal. But as I get older, I see that peace is a product of balance. You can’t start with imbalance and end with peace, be that in your own body, in an ecosystem or between a government and its people. What we need to strive for is not perfection, but balance.”

– Ani Di Franco talks feminism while promoting her new album, Which Side Are You On?, which is coming out on January 16. It has always surprised me how some people think feminism means a matriarchy in the sense of oppressing men and women being in control of society. Really, people who care about gender equality care about just that: letting who you are dictate your opportunities, not your gender. How come that’s so hard to understand? [Independent UK]

If we’re to believe the news being leaked out of Coachella Festival headquarters, this year’s double weekend Coachella Festival, held in Indio, California on April 13-15 and April 20-22, is going to be like taking a fantastical ride in the wayback machine to the mid-’90s. Supposedly the fest’s headliners are No Doubt, Foo Fighters and Radiohead. And also appearing: Fiona Apple (!), Chris Cornell, Underworld (remember “Born Slippy”?) and Nada Surf. Oh sure, there are some current bands playing too — like Best Coast and Wild Flag — but the headliners are all a zillion years old.

Happy 2012! I thought you might need some jams to ease you into the new year. Better yet, how about something you can rock out to while simultaneously receiving dating advice? No, we don’t want no scrubs, but we also don’t want no muffin pounders. Singer Shira (featuring Asco) reminds us about those kind of playas who only want to pound our muffins in her new single “Pound On My Muffin.” This could be the breakout track of the winter. Move over Rebecca Black. Also, those are cupcakes in the video, if I’m not mistaken. But we don’t want no cupcake pounders either. [Dlisted]

Rihanna channels everybody from Alex in “A Clockwork Orange” to a cane-toting pimp in her new video, “You Da One,” which is all done in black and white.  The song is epically meh — her vocal inflections remind of stuff Gwen Stefani was doing 10 years ago. But at least the outfits are cool. What do you think? Keep reading »
