Mixtape: Sugar and Spice

Mixtape: Sugar and Spice
This playlist is a fist-shake to the popular music biz that so often shines its spotlight on girls who pose with guitars they don’t actually play and mouth words to songs they didn’t actually write. It’s in honour of all the female musicians who get on stage, play their own instruments, and make truly cool and original music.
These women are poets and punks. They’re sweet, sassy and sexually liberated. They take charge of stages, meld genres and push boundaries. Side A is perfect for a sweet Sunday morning sleep-in—the kind of stuff that gets Granny’s seal of approval. Side B is for letting it all go—whatever that means to you. Thumbs down to drawing all the cool women in music under that giant “womyn’s music” umbrella. Thumbs up to just giving them the props they deserve.Listen to the mixtape here: 8tracks.com/theconcordian/sugar_n_spice
