Hello, girl (and boy) germs!
I’m back with a new mix for you; this one is a combination of up-and-coming female artists and female-fronted bands (as well as some pretty well-known artists) that will no doubt do amazing things in 2011.
If you’re a hip-hop fan and you don’t know about Psalm One, stop what you’re doing and go to her Bandcamp page. She’s a multifaceted (chemist by day, rapper by night) and prolific lady who self-released three free EPs in 2010. She also holds her own as the sole female artist on the local Rhymesayers label, and will put out a new album this year. We featured her recently as a “Lady You Should Know About” on the Girl Germs blog.
We’re also looking forward to long-awaited releases from Minnesota native Anni Rossi, Eternal Summers, La Sera (a Vivian Girls side project) and Midnight Masses in 2011, and can’t wait for artists with new material to tour.
You’ve probably noticed that ‘90s fashion is back, and a similar phenomenon is happening in music. Laetitia Sadier, the frontwoman of Stereolab has a new solo album, and her band just released one, too. Finally, we almost peed ourselves a couple months ago when we heard Wild Flag existed. Members of Sleater-Kinney and Mary Timony of Helium? Yes, please. No word on an album yet, but in the meantime enjoy this live version of them covering a Standells favorite.
Happy 2011, and don’t forget to stop by the Red Stag Supperclub tomorrow night for TV Party with Girl Germs: Golden Girls. We’ll be showing classic episodes, playing some music for y’all and enjoying some sweet happy hour specials. Hope to see you there!
