Also Stream the Gossip’s Music for Men


That sound you hear — Beth Ditto dismissing Katy Perry’s “I Kissed a Girl” as a “boner dyke anthem” — would seem to indicate that a new Gossip record is imminent. Verily, Music for Men (produced by Rick Rubin!) is out Tuesday, and streaming at at this very moment: At first blush it’s a bit smoother and shinier than you’re/they’re used to, but Beth’s still a knockout, and you might not even notice the synths.
