An interview with Eva Moolchan
/ by Eva Silverman and Shannon Leach

Sneaks is the project of Eva Moolchan, a Washington DC based musician who writes brilliant "zing zongs" and performs one of the most magical shows I've ever seen. I first heard Sneaks when I read that Sister Polygon had released their tape, and as soon as I finished listening to it, I ran downstairs to tell my mom of the wonders of Sneaks at length. I

couldn't keep my excitement inside. Sometimes you find a band that's exactly what you didn't even know you needed, and for me, this is what Sneaks is. Her lyrics are equally childish and sinister; her spoken word delivery that makes every turn of phrase seem like a mantra. All over just a bass and drum machine, Sneaks is a breath of fresh air, something unique and

satisfying and transcendent. When Shannon texted me asking if I'd heard of them, my immediate response was something like "YES YES YES <3_<3 … We should try to interview her." Less than a month later, we talked about to Eva about the influences of childhood traditions in her music, her process of creating songs, and finding validation within . . .

An interview with Gun Outfit / by Viktor Vargyai

Gun Outfit is a deeply human band, a reliable soundtrack to the weariness and wariness of my early twenties. Their records are like Tarkovsky polaroids, folk songs for the 21st century, meditative and psychedelic, simultaneously expansive and intimate. I encourage everyone to take LSD at least once in their lifetime. I demand that everyone

listen to Gun Outfit.

Carrie Keith and Dylan Sharp are punks, but they don't play punk music. I run Maximum Rocknroll, a print fanzine focused on international punk and hardcore, historically both reviled and respected for being an arbiter of what is or is not "punk." I have to make decisions every month

about what we can include in our pages. Carrie and Dylan are my fellow travelers, but I couldn't make an argument for printing this interview there. I'm thrilled that it could find a home in a publication as diverse and far-reaching as The Media, a project that I consider to be psychically and ideologically aligned with MRR in many ways . . .

An interview with Marie and Nina about their jerseys

Marie and Nina make amazing jerseys that say “GENDER IS OVER (if you want it)". You can order one at They are using this project to raise money for various queer organizations, such as the Sylvia Rivera Law Project, Trans Lifeline, and the Audre Lorde Project. We asked them both about gender, jerseys, and the value of wearing your politics.

Tell us about the origins of this project.

Nina: The line 'Gender Is Over (if you want it)' popped into my head late one night, as a play on Yoko Ono & John Lennon's "War Is Over (if you want it)" campaign. At first I was just going to tweet it out, but then I thought to make it into a sticker. Twitter is a great medium for generating ideas but it's also really ephemeral, so I've been trying to extend the shelf life of some tweets by expanding them into zines or poems or stickers or other more lasting projects … Anyway, I thought it would be cool to also make into a tank top so I reached out to Marie, who's great at graphic design and font matching and also at logistics and actualizing ideas, and she made it happen!

Marie: I was instantly drawn in because 1. I really love challenging gender norms and 2. I really love turning ideas into reality. We didn't explicitly discuss it at first, but I believe there was an understood camaraderie of desiring a physical item we could brandish as a representation of our mentalities around gender and its hold on society. We worked together on implementing the design to perfection, and then decided that it had to end up on a shirt. More specifically, a black, reversible, mesh sleeveless jersey. What can I say? I dream of summer all winter.

When folks order the 'gender is over' shirt they are promoted with the question, "what . . .
