A Plethora of Riches

Unfinished Mail – February 2016

A Plethora of Riches

            It is mid January and I think I’m a pile of stress. Normally January and February are calm months. This year things are in overdrive. Already we’re hearing of many new releases and tours and festivals. In addition this month we decided to bring you something big. A profile piece on women tour managers.
 
            FEMMUSIC is not an investigative magazine. When we first started we were an interview magazine. In recent years it feels like we’ve become a content aggregate. I also feel like we preview many events with more artists than I can keep tabs on. Suffering a plethora of riches is something I can always live with.
 
            In January we came across some wonderfully controversial artists. Some people do not like change. I personally find artists who break boundaries to be appealing. One of these artists featured in this month’s issue – Steph Sweet. Her song “Rape” is something that will make people uncomfortable but must be done. Pay attention to MRK. We couldn’t show her video because of nudity but that does not mean it did not earn our respect.
 
            Next month will be our SXSW preview. It is an issue that takes months to do. We hope to bring you artists you’ve never heard of….
