Music Playlist #5: Grrrrrrrllll

Chairlift's Caroline Polachek

Chairlift’s Caroline Polachek

2013 certainly has been a fantastic year for female artists (and bands with female vocalists). This year has seen albums which range from very good to fantastic from the likes of: Camera Obscura, Chvrches, Eleanor Friedberger, Haim, Janelle Monae, Julia Holter, Julianna Barwick, Laura Marling, Lorde, Marnie Stern, Neko Case, Savages, She & Him, Waxahatchee, Young Galaxy and many others that I’ve been too lazy to track down.

This playlist celebrates songs by female artists from the 3 previous years (2010-2012). To see my favourite female authored/sung tracks of 2013, click here.

All the songs are individually linked but I’ve compiled a YouTube Playlist for your benefit.

I’ve tried to avoid using artists that I’ve featured in my 2013 list OR in my other playlists (See 1, 2, 3 & 4)
