BitchTapes: Even more SXSW Favorites

brazil samba trans feminist liniker e os caramelows

For the entire month of March, I’m highlighting the best feminist music to come out of South by Southwest’s Music festival, which wrapped up last weekend in Austin, Texas. This year I was particularly struck by artists who have obviously been galvanized by the current political climate, and have taken up the mantle of the revolution. If PWR BTTM, Hurray for the Riff Raff, Priests, or Downtown Boys come to your town, for example, GO SEE THEM. Those bands, and many on this list, are preaching directly to those of us with weary hearts. To quote Maren Morris, “Yeah, I guess that’s my church.” 

Track List:

1. Lizzo - Worship

2. CHAI - ボーイズ・セコ・メン

3. Birthh - Chlorine

4. Mothica - Out of It

5. Charly Bliss - Ruby

6. Lisa Prank - Starting Again

7. Sneaks - X.T.Y.

8. Sad13 - Hype

9. Marisa Anderson - Mesquite Shade

10. Le Butcherettes - Henry Don’t Got Love

11. Allison Pierce - Evidence

12. Young M.A. - Hot Sauce

13. Coco Hames - I Don’t Wanna Go

14. Liniker e os Caramelows - Lina X

15. Weaves - Drag Me Down

16. Odetta Hartman - Dreamcatchers
