Sadie Dupuis (Speedy Ortiz) + Sima Cunningham & Macie Stewart (OHMME)
Sadie Dupuis (Speedy Ortiz)
It’s very strange (“Or not strange at all! Hi!” says feminism) that most of the music we funnel into little girls’ ears—even music written by former little girls—is about how women are petty, pretty garbage whose only valuable function is to hold perfectly still in men’s boudoirs and wait for intercourse. “I wanted to make songs that were the opposite of ‘Genie in A Bottle’ or ‘The Boy Is Mine,’” Sadie Dupuis says of Slugger, her new solo album under the name Sad13. “Songs that put affirmative consent at the heart of the subject matter and emphasize friendship among women and try to deescalate the toxic jealousy and ownership that are often centered in romantic pop songs.” What!? Songs for women that actually champion women’s autonomy, reflect women’s desires, listen to women when they talk, and let women be funny and normal and cool, like women actually are?
After being born, which she totally nailed, Sadie grew up in New York City, toured internationally with a professional children’s choir, then bounced around Massachusetts before eventually landing in Philadelphia “like every other feminist punk.” She has an MFA in poetry from UMass Amherst, likes comics WITH AN ALL-CAPS PASSION, has written for Nylon and Spin, and is mega-beloved for her rock band Speedy Ortiz. Most recently, finding herself disillusioned with a lifetime of misogynist radio pop and yearning for the megalomaniacal autonomy of a solo project, Sadie/Sad13 churned out Slugger in a two-week fury.
Slugger is a pure solo effort. Sadie didn’t just write and sing and play guitar, she recorded and produced the record herself in a subletted bedroom in Fishtown—a not insignificant act of feminist defiance. Despite millennia of evidence to the contrary, women in music are still relentlessly pigeonholed as, essentially, decorative. Sure, you can be a girl singer, or a girl tambourine player, or, once in a while (the height of novelty!), a girl drummer, but a girl producer? A girl engineer? Cool X-File, Mulder! Sadie steers Slugger with a serene sure-footedness, vaporizing that old lie better than any howling polemic ever could. The best revenge is to do your work.
Slugger’s musical touchstones are vast and varied: contemporary pop à la Charli XCX, Santigold, Kelela, Grimes; folk songwriters Karen Dalton and Connie Converse; ‘90s trip-hop; riot grrrl (duh); plus Sad13’s feminist indie and punk contemporaries like Tacocat, Waxahatchee, Mitski, and Bully. Slugger shouldn’t feel like a revolution, but it does—in both content and execution. This is fun music about real shit.

Adeline Michèle (Escort)
Madison McFerrin is a born and bred Soul artist who combines the story telling once revered in the past with the sound of the 21st century. Currently based in Brooklyn, New York, she has spent her life cultivating her style through studying and playing. As the co-founder of the funk/soul group Cosmodrome, she spent her college years touring the Eastern US playing venues large and small, from legendary NYC club The Blue Note, to Bonaroo, opening up for Emily King and Hiatus Kaiyote, all of which helped land the attention of notable artists such as Chick Corea and Questlove of The Roots. She then joined the SpiritYouAll band led by her father, jazz vocalist Bobby McFerrin, as a background and featured vocalist from 2013-15 for his global tours. She has since sung with greats such as Aretha Franklin, George Clinton and the PFunk All-Stars, as well as for hip hop legends De La Soul backed by The Roots. With the hope of bringing old soul into the popular music of today, Madison has gone about curating her own individual sound while honoring the many influences that came before her. Using these elements, she independently released her debut EP, and first installment of her fully a cappella series entitled Finding Foundations December 2016.
Faith Harding (Novelty Daughter) + Sarah Goldstone (Ex-Reyes) + Sally Decker (Multa Nox)
Faith Harding (Novelty Daughter)
Novelty Daughter is the project of Brooklyn-based musician Faith Harding — one that unites a childhood of jazz training in vocals and piano, countless Wednesday nights spent at Los Angeles’ beat scene fortress Low End Theory, and formative time spent in Berlin’s warehouses.
The result of this stylistic wanderlust is music that strives to contain the best of the various worlds Harding inhabits—loop-heavy beat constructions that are rich in texture, hard-hitting in delivery, and a devout consciousness of melodic intricacy and song-centered structures.
“Harding overlays her crystalline, jazz-inflected voice onto itself, with jittery, synth-driven grooves churning away below. She is at turns exuberantly spiritual, tenderly reassured and anxiety-ridden.” – NY Times
Sarah Goldstone (Ex-Reyes)
Sarah Goldstone is a pianist, keyboardist, vocalist, violinist, and composer based in Brooklyn, NY. She holds degrees from Boston University (philosophy, musicology) and Mannes The New School for Music (piano performance). Classically trained, she currently performs, records, and tours in a wide variety of genres. Notable venues include Carnegie Hall, Radio City Music Hall and the Fillmore, and she has played on Conan and the Today Show. While at home and on the road, Sarah scores music for film. Drawing from her classical training, her work contains lush string orchestrations, modern electronic sounds, and inventive song writing. She currently plays for: How to Dress Well, Kiyo Co., Matt Sucich, Ex Reyes, Hurray for the Riff Raff, Alex Winston,and Merrily James.
Sally Decker (Multa Nox)
Sally Decker is a musician and poet from Evanston, IL. Her primary performance project is called multa nox, where she uses electronics in an attempt to move through submerged intimate territories such as solitude, anxiety, & frenzied wonder. She is interested in the emotional potential of sounds as healing or portals of connection, and works to impart a type of focus towards one’s own internal world. She also plays in the band Market.
