Ep: Bad Moves – Bad Moves

Bad Moves, the D.C. power-pop-rock supergroup, released an EP in early December that was an obvious response to recent political events. But they also addressed pressing issues that can be considered more nuanced, such as holding shitty jobs, gender conventions, and growing up in suburbia. The opening song, appropriately titled “Shitty Tomorrow,” is a boppy … Read more

EP: Gobbinjr – Vom Night

Gobbinjr - Vom Night

There’s something really, really painful about realizing how much love you have and how little people seem to care. I can recount, albeit incredibly clichéd, the number of times I have felt this melancholy feeling. In line at grocery stores, walking home alone after a night of going out, in libraries (Them: “Can I borrow … Read more

Spotlight: Julia Gfrörer

Spotlight: Julia Gfrörer

As a middle schooler, I was absolutely obsessed with ancient imagery. On trips to New York I would drag my family to the MET museum and admire the marble bust sculptures and little preserved trinkets. I wish I could say that I was attracted to this world solely because it pulled me away from the … Read more

Premiere: Petal – “Silly Heart”

Petal - "Silly Heart"

The cover of Shame, the upcoming LP from Petal, features a hazy photo of two windows flooded with unnatural light. It’s beautiful, eerie, a bit off – it hints that everything is not as it appears. Those sentiments are echoed throughout Petal’s full-length debut, out on Oct. 23 from Run For Cover Records. Kiley Lotz … Read more

Tomboy is no stranger to THE LE SIGH. From being featured on our Vol. I tape compilation to reviewing their cassette back in ’13, we’ve had heart eye emojis for the Boston-based four piece comprised of Ali, Hanna, Madeline, and Meghan for a while now. If you’ve been staying updated, you’ve probably been counting down the days til the … Read more

Interview: Waxahatchee

I remember hearing Waxahatchee for the first time during my last year of college, right before spring break. I put on Cerulean Salt and immediately found solace. My friends and I listened to the album on the way to Austin, perhaps the perfect album for driving twenty hours straight through ghost towns and meadows of … Read more

Monday Mix: The Le Sigh Vol. 1

The Le Sigh Vol. 1

2013 was a great year for us. In the last twelve months, we’ve almost tripled our staff and grown our readership to a scope that we didn’t think was possible. We’ve had the opportunity of collaborating with many incredible musicians and visual artists through our Girl Spotlight and Monday Mix series. And above all – … Read more

Premiere: Tomboy – “Sweetie” Single

Sweetie Single Art

We couldn’t be more excited to premiere Tomboy’s newest track “Sweetie.” For a band that’s only released one set of demos, Boston’s Tomboy has had a pretty huge influence on us. You may remember our write-up last Spring where we praised them for confronting gender inequality in the music industry with a song like “I’m in the … Read more

Tape: Tomboy – In the Fucking Band

Tomboy Band

Boston’s Tomboy is in the fucking band. Massachusetts is home to a lot of great bands, Tomboy included. While I’ve never been to a show in Boston, the trio (who all chime in vocals) make it sound like a lot of fun. At the beginning of this year, the band resurfaced to release a six-song … Read more
