Feminist iconoclast and queer electroclash hero Peaches dropped her first book this week. The photography collection, What Else Is In The Teaches Of Peaches?, was shot by Holger Talinski and captures the more intimate moments of the life of the boundary-pushing, gender-fucking art-punk goddess. You can listen to her talking about the project, below:

Speaking of punkers, queer rock/rapper Stose dropped his first album Civil Disobedience this week. The album, a stern indictment of corrupted capitalism and social injustice, was inspired by the artist’s experiences abroad. From his Tumblr:

Since a young age, I’ve always had an insistent urge to question authority. The idea of “resistance” was an itch that needed to be scratched, especially in the presence of authority figures; figures who were over-bearing and had a superiority complex. I would make it my mission to exploit the rules set in place, especially ones I felt were unjust or unnecessary. I only challenged rules that needed to be questioned.

You can buy Civil Disobedience on iTunes now (and, yes, the irony of that statement is not lost on me).

Also dropping new stuff this week is Zebra Katz, who is continuing to release haunting videos for songs off of his latest experimental EP Nu Renegade (also available on iTunes). This time, we’re treated to the darkly beautiful delight of “Nina Simone”. Check out the video, right here:

Lastly, Cakes Da Killa dropped your new favorite summer jam of 2015. Forget “Pretty Girls” or anything you’ll hear on the radio, Cakes is bringing the fire once again. Here’s “Drop Top” with Hot Mom USA and Shiftee:
