Here at Style Flavors, we absolutely believe that everyone should be who they are. We hate discrimination and inequality and it is with such honor that we salute the lead singer of one of our favorite bands, Against Me!, Tom Gabel’s decision to come out as transgender and begin living as a woman. He plans to take hormones and undergo electrolysis treatments, and will take the name Laura Jane Grace.
This song is a double performance of the song “Harsh Realms” Gabel played for SPIN four years ago and it is so symbolic of the current situation. It is also honest and poignant. We can’t even begin to imagine what it must be like to feel trapped in a body. We will not abandon you Laura Jane. Rock on.
This fun ditty from Jessie Ware was introduced to us by our potential future music editor, CJ. Here is what CJ has to say about the track.
“110% is the follow-up to her stunning “Running” single, but this is definitely not the first time the music world has been introduced to the goodness (and realness) of Jessie Ware, nor will it be the last. On “110%”, it is infused with some minor Hip-Hop and R&B flavors, heard on the auto-tuned, masculine murmurings, but there’s also the pretty, lush twist of Jessie Ware’s vocals that never fails to make listeners at ease amidst the hustle-bustle of city life. Take a listen and relax in your sanctuary.”
