Les Amazones d’Afrique

This is my last post as Music Editor at Bitch, so it’s a good time to look back for a minute. Our mix this week is a collection of music that is either so brand-new I haven’t gotten the chance to cover it yet (Hi, H.E.R. single surprise dropped TODAY), or it came out in the last year, since I’ve been in this job, but it passed me by. I might not have gotten to them on their first round, but each of these songs is front and center in my spring playlists now. Hope something catches your ear!

Track List:

1. Houndstooth - Bliss Boat

2. Du Blonde - Four in the Morning

3. Catherine Feeny - Girl’s Got Pockets

4. TOMBOi - Rainbow Warrior

5. Carry Illinois - Electric Charm

6. Dobet Gnahore - Tania

7. Adult Mom - Tenderness

8. SassyBlack - Sorry I Had to Funk You Up

9. Les Amazones d’Afrique - Dombolo

10. Quetzal - La Danze de Coyolxauhqui

11. Julia Lucille - Eternally

12. The Doubleclicks - Cats at Parties

13. Aurora Nealand & The Royal Roses - Toploulou

14. Little Dragon - Sweet

15. H.E.R. - Say it Again


What else didn’t I get to while I was Music Editor, that you think should be in my earbuds right this second? Let me know on Twitter, @loveismaroon.
