Tom Waits: Mule Variations Album Review | Pitchfork
The album- closing bittersweet mid- tempo rocker tradition has never seen a better entry than "Come On Up to the House," and the strange, out- of- phase falsetto backing vocals on "Black Market Baby" are alone worth the price of admission.

Rhiannon Giddens Forms 'Our Native Daughters' to Reclaim the Soul of Country Music
The gaze of the camera, however, does not rest on her, the victim’s face. It rests on her husband, the man who was “wronged” as an impetus for him to rebel against his white oppressors—and as I sat in the little theater in New York City, I found myself furious. Furious at the moment in a long history of moments of the pain and suffering of black women being used to justify a man’s actions; at her own emotion and reaction being literally written out of the frame. The idea of taking historical words and notions and observations about slavery and making art with them then came to me.

There is surely racism in this country—it’s baked into our oldest institutions—just as there is sexism, millennia old. At the intersection of the two stands the African-American woman. Used, abused, ignored, and scorned, she has in the face of these things been unbelievably brave, groundbreaking, and insistent. Black women have historically had the most to lose, and have therefore been the fiercest fighters for justice—in large, public ways that are only beginning to be highlighted, and in countless domestic ways that will most likely never be acknowledged.

The Bruno Mars Controversy Proves People Don’t Understand Cultural Appropriation
There is no universally accepted definition of the term, but it generally relates to the use of the art, artifacts, symbology or anything of cultural significance to a minority or nondominant group of people by a person who is not in that group.

What separates cultural appropriation from a cultural exchange or paying homage is when someone “borrows” an item or symbol of cultural significance without acknowledgment, attribution or permission. One of the other hallmarks of appropriation is using someone’s culture to demean, make fun of or diminish it.

Auld Lang Syne - Wikipedia
The song's Scots title may be translated into standard English as "old long since", or more idiomatically, "long long ago",[5] "days gone by" or "old times". Consequently, "For auld lang syne", as it appears in the first line of the chorus, might be loosely translated as "for (the sake of) old times".

The Appeal of the Coachella Way of Life - The New Yorker
If Coachella does have one marker of identity, it is clothing. For women, this is a highly specific and much-derided uniform of cutoff denim shorts, long flowing dresses, and culturally insensitive headdresses. These aesthetic signifiers of bohemia have become so aligned with Coachella that retailers now use Coachella in product descriptions to stoke buying impulses. A search for “Coachella” on ASOS, the popular e-commerce site, pulls up a collection of fringed garments. H & M (a Coachella sponsor) has launched its own “Coachella collection”—marketed to festival attendees and non-attendees alike—also with many fringed pieces. On Etsy, a “Coachella” search surfaces more than twenty-four thousand results, the pages of which could serve as satire of a festival-wear guidebook: denim cutoffs, jangly ankle bracelets, crocheted cropped halter tops, aviator sunglasses with mini plastic daisies affixed to the rims, tie-dyed fanny packs, and an excess of flower crowns. Largely thanks to Coachella, flower crowns have become so ubiquitous that Courtney Love has written them off altogether: “Flower crowns are over. Fuck flower crowns,” she told in 2014. The Coachella audience seems undeterred. There’s even a flower-crown filter on Snapchat.
