Last week, for the first time in my life, my parents warned me that my identity might put me in danger and urged me to be careful in public. “A lot of people are going to hate Chinese people,” my father said. I was terrified to leave my house to pick up a prescription from the pharmacy or go for a run in a nearby park.

On Tuesday, a few days ahead of its slated release date, Sufjan Stevens released “Aporia,” his latest collaborative effort with his stepfather Lowell Brams. From their minds was born the album whose title means something akin to “at a loss” in Greek, a message that is not lost on listeners or the musicians themselves amid the current pandemic-induced uncertainty.
Friday afternoon marked a likely first for Tre Jones, myself and many others: a press conference over Zoom.
Conan Gray is lonely. A global pandemic has him isolated at home, surrounded by the comforts of musical instruments and Taylor Swift and Lorde posters. The real-life embodiment of #quirky, he has his long hair down and a guitar in hand as he jokes around with his fans on an Instagram Live counting down the minutes till his debut album, “Kid Krow,” is released. One thing leads to another, and before long, he’s singing his album’s singles acoustically for the camera.
