Portland’s queer queen of pop Frankie Simone has a treat for us on the heels of the release of her debut EP, LOVE//WARRIOR, in the form of her take on the classic holiday tune “The Christmas Song”. Premiering at Vortex Music Magazine, the remake shows Frankie putting her feminist twist on the quintessential song. Check it out below, and if you’re in Portland, don’t miss her at the Holigay Spectacular at Mississippi Studios on December 15. Tickets and more info HERE.
Gabriel Walsh’s current project The Earthly Frames are set to release a new album January 11 and Substream has the premiere today of the first song/video, “A Doorbell for Finite Beings”.

The song and the video are both an exercise in controlled chaos, which Substream says, “is definitely the drawing point.” Check it out below!
