Yoko Ono and Cat Power: Revelations

Bikini Kill, a new release from M.I.A., a playlist for pride and more in our recap of music we tweeted this week

It’s been a huge week for LGBTQ politics and pride. To celebrate NYC Gay Pride Week, National Pride Month across the US and a marriage equality ruling by the Supreme Court, we’re listening to Rdio’s The Year In Queer Playlist. With songs from Frank Ocean, Tegan and Sara, Beyoncé, Carly Rae Jepsen, Mykki Blanco and Brenmar, the selection reflects “the biggest gay moments of the year.” Each song and artist has been hand-picked for a particular—and excellent—reason. From Elton John and partner David Furnish having a baby, to Madonna being banned from Russia for publicly supporting gay rights, all of the songs reflect a significant moment from the year so far in the LGBTQ community. It’s the perfect playlist to party to this pride weekend.
