Los Angeles has often been described as a “dream factory”–both a mecca where dreamers converge to pursue long-held aspirations, and a topography of hallucinogenic contradictions: enchanting tangerine sunsets diffused by smog, crystal-clutching spiritualists mingling with deep-pocketed narcissists, rows of scenic palms competing with garish billboards for commuters’ attention.

Artist Talk: Shelley Wong

In her poems, Shelley Wong centers queer women of color to counter their marginalization and foreground their desires independent of motherhood and marriage. Her speakers transform the natural world and themselves, using beauty as a means of sanctuary and subversion. Wong seeks to re-vision the world against patriarchy and colonialism with women who navigate and inhabit a range of spaces. She is interested in using the page as a canvas, a field of queer possibility, to explore how meaning is assembled with silence, linebreaks, and breath.

It's not uncommon for musicians to grow and evolve between releases -- but even by those standards, the DistrictsPopular Manipulations is stunning. The Pennsylvania-borne band's third full-length represents an exponential leap in sound and cohesion, an impressive and impassioned burn with a wide scope that threatens to swallow everything else surrounding it. Perhaps it's a cliché to say so, but while listening, you might find yourself wondering why people don't make indie rock like this anymore.
