I love finding a song or album that I can wind my windows down, pump up the volume and just enjoy the tunes, while the wind rips through my hair…I might look like a rat’s nest when I arrive at my destination, but the ride was totally thumping and totally worth it. I’ve decided that this summer, I will be compiling a playlist of a few of my favorite ladies and the tunes they so fantastically created. Here is a sneak peak!!
1) Yeah Yeah Yeahs–Show Your Bones (2006)
Epic album. Everytime I listen to the opener, Gold Lion, I just get jazzed. All of those “ooh ooh”s Karen O belts, make it imopossible not to sing along. She wanted to create a fresh sound with this album and I think the band succeeded! There is so much emotion behind her voice, you can’t help but fall-in-angst.
2) Chvrches–The Bones of What You Believe (2013)
Ok. So this album isn’t actually a throw back or whatever, but it is one of my recent favorites. Lauren Mayberry really meshes their synthpop sound with her glorious glowing vocals. You won’t be able to stop yourself as you bob your head and dance along to all of their catchy tunes. She. is. fantastic. Check them out!!
3) Phantogram–Voices (2014)
I just have to say, SO MUCH ENERGY! Sarah Barthel knows how to bring it. Their sound is described as “lots of rhythms, swirling guitars, spacey keyboards, echoes, airy vocals”. You will be waving your arms in the air, like you just don’t care…just don’t forget you’re driving! Hey yey yey yahh!!!!
