Couldn’t be more thrilled to have had Juliet Garrett take over Left Bank this week. Women’s History Month has been full of highs and lows, and we are honored to have a little part in highlighting some of the women making history today. Her debut EP Corners of Pretend just came out Friday, so we thought, what better way to end her takeover week than discussing the new album.

We are STOKED to announce that for the month of March we have different women artists taking over our site for Women's History Month.

With your feet on the air and your head on the ground
Try this trick and spin it, yeah
Your head will collapse
But there's nothing in it
And you'll ask yourself
Where is my mind?
Where is my mind?
Where is my mind?
Way out in the water
See it swimming

Feeling deeply connected to her constant fear of impending doom, @KiraMetcalf channels her inner sad girl in her cover of "Sally's Song," from The Nightmare Before Christmas.

“I picked this song partially because it speaks to the hopelessness I’ve been feeling about our corrupt political systems and feeling powerless to change anything. Sally uses her anxiety and fear to get sh*t done which is why she’s the REAL protagonist of Nightmare Before Christmas.” -- Kira Metcalf

Listen to her cover (and possibly our favorite Kira Metcalf song ever) on our site now 🖤

Happy Halloween, ya freaks! Our favorite multi-hyphenate Gillian Visco is back with a Halloween premiere of the newest episode of Stray Cats.

“Goth Kid” features the ultimate punk sounds from Brooklyn-based band Retail, and a montage of New York-esque scenes, culminating with Visco in a park doing—well, I’ll just leave it up to you to watch and see.

Launched on YouTube on October 1, 2020, Stray Cats highlights the lives of three New York City-based artists that reside in far off working-class neighborhoods in Brooklyn while pursuing their dreams in the city.

The web series, created by Gillian Leigh Visco (of Shadowmonster fame), draws on her own life’s experiences in a world that caters more to the idle wealthy and leaves starving creatives fighting for their lives.

This just in: we're a music magazine. Did you know that?

Did you miss us, baby? No really, did you miss us?

Did Covid-19 knock you down and drag you out and make you feel totally and completely lifeless? Yeah, us too, baby. Us too.

Enter stage right: The Mall, a St. Louis, Mo. (my hometown) band that screams and shouts its way throughout the track with a darkwave that best expresses the tornado of emotions that we all have been experiencing.

We are beyond thrilled to share the Sacrosanct Community Resource Zine, a project curated by Alexa Dexa.

“The zine I’m compiling is what I hope will be a similarly useful tool in the form of a physical and digital do-it-together collection of anecdotes, visual encouragements, and tangible resources by and for community members that can help us to identify and disrupt abusive power dynamics in our communities, at our places of work, and in our personal lives in order to enact change for ourselves now.” – Alexa Dexa

Full of helpful tips and inspiring stories, Sacrosanct Community Resource Zine is as powerful as it is engaging.

The zine is available to read on our site now: https://leftbankmag.com/2020/10/27/resources-sacrosanct-community-resource-zine/

[Sounds] Sealife // Beat Queen (5 Minute Album)

“Beat Queen is a 5 minute album. 5 songs, 5 stories, one minute each. Each song completely different in tone and mood from each other, accompanied by 5 interconnected music videos. A side-show of moods and emotions, and a compliment to short attention spans.” Brennan Moring, aka Sealife

https://leftbankmag.com/2020/09/13/sounds-sealife-beat-queen-5-minute-album/

We’ve been fans of Sealife for quite some time on the Left Bank—their music envelops you in funky grooves, dynamic lyrics, and truly conceptual work (music videos and live sessions to start).…

Our Story

Left Bank is an international print and digital publication that covers underground and primarily undiscovered artists. We take curation seriously and search the globe for the best emerging talent across music, art, literature, skating, and surfing.

We take direct inspiration from the literary and artistic haven of the Left Bank in Paris (circa la génération perdue), and work hard to keep that creative spirit alive.

We are owned by Left Bank Media LLC and work closely with our sister sites, Left Bank College and the creative agency Left Bank Buzz.
