Drowned in Sound profiled the band Hinds.

"Listen to those early singles and it doesn't take long to work out why they’ve become such hot property. Their ramshackle surf-pop garage-rock has an infectious energy, and they play with a glorious, devil-may-care abandon that makes jamming with your friends sound like the most natural – and fun – thing in the world. They tell me that the rough edges and woozy reverb that form part of their charm were neither planned nor accidental; they were simply a consequence of the typical constraints faced by fledgling bands."

Flavorwire listed non-binary and gender-fluid novels.

Paste profiled singer-songwriter Shelby Lynne.
