Bikini Kill: Punk beyond politics

During its initial ’90s lifespan, Bikini Kill was as much radical crusade as independent rock band—a group that came to stand for an entire generation of feminist punk. Now, the ex-members are running their own label, reclaiming and reissuing their influential catalog, and placing the music front and center.

play track Summer Air // Night by Purmamarca

A really creative and absorbing pop record, recorded on a USB-microphone in various places around the world. Travel is a magical thing and Ryan Henry has captured it perfectly here.

play track Vol. 1 by Beech Coma

Debut compilation from a new UK-based collective featuring some of the best bands around just now. Lofi, scuzzy and brilliantly infectious, it's a really impressive start and a great listen throughout.

play album Wendy by Small Wonder

The best album of 2014 so far. A stirring, emotional rollercoaster and some of the best song-writing I've ever heard. Deserves every ounce of praise that's being thrown its way. A bonafide masterpiece.

play track Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It) by Omaha Diner

Spotted from the Bandcamp homepage, this is a great cover - perhaps even more so because it is instrumental. Good to let the horns do the talking, sometimes.

play track Black Panther by Ayanna Witter-Johnson

A beautiful EP - vocally, musically, and lyrically, this gets a regular play. Reminds me of early India Arie, yet Ayanna clearly has a style of her own. Like it so much I bought copies for my girlfriends.

play track Song For My Baby by Black Pearl Records

Laid back vibes, piano, guitar and Latin flavours all concoct a perfect wigged out special dedication classic. Reminds me of Harvey Mason and 80's soul classics, with a big oooph! waiting to knock you out and make your heart sing.
