Foxing released a new track off their upcoming album, "Dealer" (out this fall.) The new track is titled "The Magdalene" and you can listen here. Foxing told NPR that:
"I was raised in Catholic school [which] imposed a very difficult stance on the freedom of sexuality," frontman Conor Murphy tells NPR. "When I lost my virginity, I felt like it was less about love and more about sin. I have really never let go of or dealt with that guilt, which made it dark to write about. I think of 'The Magdalene' as a retrospective diary entry after losing my virginity."
The track is a beautiful retrospective, and if you like it make sure to check out the album in late October and Foxing on tour in November (along with TWIABP.) Also look at Foxing's Facebook for updates, tour dates, and hopefully more new music soon.

LOLAWOLF By Allison Pinski
I found Lolawolf last year through Zoë Kravitz (daughter of Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet, and actress in movies like “Divergent,” “Mad Max: Fury Road,” and “Dope”). Kravitz, along with fellow bandmates Jimmy Giannopoulos and James Levy, released their debut album “Calm Down” last October.
Lolawolf is the kind of breezy cool-girl music you listen to when you’re driving around late at night with your friends. I would even call them the xx of R&B, with a similar sound to the band, only with more R&B.
Some of my favorite songs by Lolawolf are “Every Fucking Day,” “Jimmy Franco (feat. A$AP Rocky),” and “Bitch” (the music video for “Bitch” even features Miley Cyrus.)
You can check out Lolawolf’s Soundcloud, Twitter, Facebook, and even Tumblr, where they announce their tour dates.
