This Playlist is getting me through this long week and the rest of this Friday! (I am so glad it’s Friday. I always am.)
For today, I made a playlist that includes just a few of my favorite females in music, right now. I have always been a fan of female artists, bands with a heavy female presence and female bassists in particular. I Love chick bassists. I wanted to be one, until I realized, I am just not very musical. At all. Or, maybe just didn’t have the patience to learn. But, there was always that desire to be in band or be on stage singing. I’m sure I’m not alone. I’m sure my love for girl bands and what not has something to do with that. When I sing along in my car, I can live vicariously through them and pretend I’m on stage. Don’t tell me it’s abnormal. Singing alone in the car is one of my most favorite things in the world.
I am pretty excited because I will get to see The Knife in April at the Fox Theatre Oakland. I have been listening to The Knife and Fever Ray for some years now and have never had the chance to see them live. And, to say that I am excited would be a huge understatement. I remember the first time I heard Heartbeats while working at Urban Outfitters in 2005 or 2006. I was hooked. It was so refreshing and new. Karin Dreijer’s voice has the most beautiful, smooth, eerie quality. And, I love all her projects
