The First Record Label By Women, For Women, In Mexico, Releases Its Debut Single

The first single to come from the house of Jueves, Mexico’s first record label founded and run by women, is a soft-sounding, powerful single that focuses on the liberation and independence of all women.

The goal of the label, founded by Leiden and Adryana Marroquín, is to show the world the music created by Latin American women and be a force that empowers women and gives them an opportunity to publish their music.

Besides the before mentioned creators of the label, the women that participate in the song, titled Bruja, are Ximbo, Michelle Anzo, Lúa Jenn, Tyna Ros, Fernanda Elío among others. It is fitting that the first single is a collaboration between all the women represented by the record label.

Soya The Cow Uses The Biggest Stage Of Her Career To Speak Up For Animals

One of the most unique protest musicians out there, Soya The Cow, recently performed at the largest stage of her career. This is all the more impressive seeing how she uses every stage, small or big, to act as a voice for animal rights. It is definitely not everyday that an event as big as The Voice (Germany) gets to hear about animal liberation.

At the end of the song Soya chose to cover the judges do their traditional turnaround and ask her a few questions. Her response and the way she used this gigantic platform can be read below in English:

“Hi, I’m Soya the Cow – from Switzerland. I dress up as a cow to show that everything could be different.

For many years I have been preoccupied with animals and the relationships between humans and other animals. And right now, as we stand and sit here, billions and billions of non-human animals are locked up, mostly under miserable circumstances.

I want to show that every single one of these animals is an individual personality, with their own needs and desires, with friendships and curiosity. We would never allow to treat a dog or a cat in the same way as we treat a cow or a chicken.”

Since we interviewed Soya last year she has released her debut album, a fantastic pop piece titled ‘Purple Grass‘, where her love for all creatures, humans and animals, shines through in her unique style of music composition.

Debt Neglector Honour Their Furry Friend With ‘Least I Could Do’ (Video)

Orlando punk rockers Debt Neglector have just released the 3rd single from their upcoming album ‘Dirty Water‘ which drops on November 5. ‘Least I Could Do’ is an ode to Janie, a beloved four legged friend and member of the family.

The song catches you from the beginning with its dramatic melody, yet upbeat and positive rhythm, and the music video gives a bit of joy, and hope, to the subject of losing a dear furry friend.

The soon to be released new album covers a lot of ground, including the division in the US political system, oppression through religion and the more specific water crisis in Flint.

All proceeds from sales of the album will be split evenly between Flint Kids Fund (flintkids.org) and Sylvester Broome Empowerment Village (www.sbev.org).
