Diving into the Depths of Door Girl, An Interview with Shilpa Ray

The individual songs are good but fitted together in sequence, they are a masterpiece. Shilpa Ray managed to create that high quality of art with her new album, Door Girl. On a chilly November night, Shilpa Ray and...

Terra Naomi became well known after releasing “Say It’s Possible” on YouTube in 2006. Now, she focuses on the release of...

Wow, talk about haunting; this song will change you. “Machine Age” by Terra Naomi is the voice that all women need right now. This amazingly thoughtful song was written as a year reflection on the election of Donald Trump. Listening to this hit me the way people must have been hit by hearing Joan Baez or Bob Dylan for the first time. If I’m...

Selene Vigil, lead singer of 7 Year Bitch, released an ep at the end of 2017 aptly named Tough Dance. “Sha La La,” the opening track literally can’t be described as anything other than a tough dance.

“EMT Police and the Fire Department” by Shilpa Ray

Nov 6, 2017

I’ve been a huge fan of Shilpa Ray since the Teenage and Torture days. I borrowed my sister’s ID so I could see her before I was of age and then I saw her every possible chance when she was in the Midwest. Although, I must be honest, I think her albums after Teenage and Torture are good but they’ve never moved me in the way that the original...
