What if I want to walk the same path everyone else is? KK: I think Aristotle said a great thing about what catharsis is: Even if something has a tragic ending, you should be moved by it; it feels good. I think that’s why I like sad music, because so much of a catharsis happens, and it makes you emotionally cleansed and feels better. AE: I asked Sara of Tegan and Sara for a quote about working with you. Lady Gaga appears on the cover of Q magazine, which is hot. She’s also debuying on the cover of US Cosmopolitan magazine in April, which is confusing.
But I find most serious musicians to be not so serious.
AE: You’re an out lesbian, yet you seem like one of the rare people whose music has always been recognized above your sexuality. Why do you think you’re the exception to that rule?
The live preview left me with the impression that this upcoming record will be killer.
The anticipated music video for Vampire Weekend’s catchy tune “Giving Up The Gun” has premiered on Spinner.
That’s really why I named the record “Animal,” because I am an animal and I’m not scared of anything.
She says it’s “ridiculous” to be compared to Katy Perry as it’s not being used as a marketing tool in her song, and “if you listen tot he last song on the record, I’m in love with what we are and not what we should be.

, and so I’m here to bring you a slightly spontaneous music roundup! Some could say this is so you don’t forget about me, while others might think I just want to geek out over Kaki King’s new track, really though who knows why things happen. But before I get into Kaki love, over the last week there have been some exciting changes to Audiostraddle and you should check ’em out: Alex and Tess have designed a new, sexy, easy-to-navigate Audiostraddle blog page! , which will be released this spring and may or may not feature Kaki on the cover dressed as a spy, I don’t know that’s just what I hear.
I recommend you continue accessing music content via the Autostraddle homepage, but it’s nice knowing that it’s now possible to quickly punch your browser’s address bar if you ever need to track down a Tegan Quin interview in a pinch. Just a reminder that we’re calling for hip-hop/rap/r&b music enthusiasts who would like to write concert and album reviews, features and artist interviews. I already had the pleasure of hearing new material when Kaki toured Australia, having snapped up tickets to every show humanly possible because seriously, I just can’t quit her.
I just went and bought a bunch of DV tapes, and every so often we’d put the camera on. I thought we’d get it down to two minutes — I never thought we’d end up with such great material.
