still from Empress Of's "Standard" video
Empress Of Standard

Empress Of's very good debut album, Me, is out today (9/11) and if you haven't checked it out yet, it's streamable below. She's also just released an arty new video for single "Standard" which was directed by Zaiba Jabbar and Empress Of's Lorely Rodriguez and also features pro bodybuilder Rob Reinaldo. It puts a new perspective on the song, perhaps literally. Watch below.

Lorely has a couple Empress Of events today to celebrate the release of Me. There's a listening party at Other Music tonight at 6:30 PM where they'll "serve up pizza and drinks and play the album in full." Also the first 20 people who buy the record get a free ticket to her show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Sunday (9/13). You can also still buy tickets for that show.

Then tonight, Empress Of will host a NY Fashion Week afterparty at Elvis Guesthouse with her DJing along with Dev Hynes, Imogene, Molly Hawkins and "more friends." It starts at 10 PM and there's an open bar from 10-11 PM. It's free. (Micachu, who plays Alphaville tonight and LPR Saturday, played a Fashion Week thing at Elvis last night.)
