This feels a little like return to form in some ways. I quite like this mix, and a very nice person said it was their favorite yet and all kind of nice things (and again here I will plug that gentleman's Mixcloud, which is pretty different from mine but it is an absolute blast and incredibly well done).
The story behind this mix, which is pretty slight: I was listening to my iPod on shuffle and about four songs in a row came on featuring women artists singing songs kind of badmouthing other women, which we all know is that is a man's job! (Kidding.) I thought it was interesting to have The City (fronted by a young Carole King) singing "Ice Queen." I also adore the April March song - something about her vocal delivery is kind of weirdly manic and snotty in this song, and she pronouncing some stuff very interestingly) and I really love Modular's cover of "Femme Fatale." I hope you enjoy it! mp3 available by request.
