So for those who have not heard/bought my last album, here it is! Have it, stream it, download it. Enjoy! We’ve had a great time making it and i think it should be shared xoxo

At this weekend’s Calgary Folk Fest I got to hear Kristi Lane Sinclair play with Leonard Sumner, Nick Sherman and Roger Knox. Really really loved her music and felt really fortunate to find this download on her tumblr. The folk fest described her music like so:

Sinclair’s musical roots create a darkly intoxicating mix of grunge, folk and classical. Her ‘smoky folk’ is rich and orchestral, underpinned with alternately snarling guitars and warm cello. Through the richly unpredictable mélange her hoarse, blade-edged voice and serrated wordplay weave smoke around irreconcilable longings, great love and the sea.

If you’re able you can also buy the CD via bandcamp

She & Cris Derksen are responsible for the Red Ride Tour, which I look forward to checking out next year.

Important things for non-black tumblr users:

not every trendy phrase you see on here is for you to use. in fact, lots of the words i see floating around on here are actually aave (african american vernacular english) and when you use it and you’re not black, that’s cultural appropriation

that includes “not about that life,” “bae,” “____ game too strong” and more. it also includes “swag,” but unfortunately i just know enough people will get angry about that and say they as non-black people don’t have to give it up and that’s disrespectful as hell but i’m just one person

honestly, when you use it, this comes with a looooong groan from me because you don’t have the background that lets a phrase like that have any meaning from you. it also acts to lessen the legitimacy of aave because it becomes a joke when non-black people use it, and black people honestly get all kinds of shit from, wow, everyone else, about how the way we speak is not “real English” and a lot of ableist stuff about our intelligence from it

so like, really, think long and hard about what’s better - you making a ‘joke’ using aave that gets some laughs from your non-black friends and pushes black achievements further into the ground, or being, i dunno, respectful? honestly, you’ll live. omitting a few words that don’t belong to you in the first place will not ruin your life.

yellowxperil had really important points about this: 

Keep a notepad with you for a few weeks and write down every time a non-black person slips into aave/ebonics (in speech, in a text message, on facebook, whatever.) then next to that, write down why. […] we slip into aave/ebonics when we’re putting on sexual predation, aggression, and loudness. What does that tell us about stereotypes of black americans?

I’m so sick of seeing people say “feminism is about *~*equality*~*!!!”

The end goal of feminism IS equality, but feminism itself is about liberation: from white supremacy, from homophobia, from sexism, and all other forms of oppressive thought and behavior.

Without first dismantling the systems that keep us oppressed, equality is impossible.

So important. 

Molly Swain gave a workshop on Indigenous feminisms a few weeks ago and talked about how (paraphrasing) Indigenous feminists like herself aren’t fighting for equality w/ white men, or for white rights, because Indigenous women had so much more than white men will ever have under colonialism and capitalism..

In that vein, I think “Without first dismantling the systems that keep us oppressed, equality is impossible [and undesirable]”
