BitchTapes: Lady Punk

Since my last Bitch Mix was all about country’s feminine side, I decided to give punk the same treatment this time around. I tried to cover the spectrum of old to new, dance-y to hardcore, and personal to political. Enjoy! Read more »

BitchTapes: The Lady Business Edition

My internship at Bitch ended this week and just recently I got a grown-up job. In a perfect world, those two things would not be mutually exclusive, however I am super happy with the full-time gig, feel fortunate that during a recession I was able to land something with benefits and good pay and I...

BitchTapes: The I Call Your Name Edition

Let’s face it. Male musicians (and some female ones) have been writing songs about their female muses ever since the first teenybopper swooned for some nerd holding a guitar. The girl’s-name-for-a-title song is an important part of the pop music aesthetic, and one that I personally love... Read more »

Bitchtapes: The Standards Edition

Covers are one thing--artists re-interpreting the work of other for homage to irony and everything in between. Standards, I feel, are something else. Beyond the ability of musical reproduction, jazz standards are meant to be continually interpreted and stylized, with little rules outside of a... Read more »

BitchTapes: The Self-Esteem Awareness Month Edition

In response to a Gold’s Gym marketing campaign that declared July “Cankles Awareness Month” (WTF, douchebags?!) Imagine Today deemed August Self-Esteem Awareness Month. To celebrate, I’ve put together a few songs about... Read more »

BitchTapes: Upbeats

Here’s a mix for those who want to groove and feel uplifted by stellar lyrics, not ticked by gratuitously crass ones. I’m definitely not one of these excruciatingly PC-folks who love all their entertainment wholesome, but still my love of hip-hop doesn’t always harmonize with hip... Read more »

BitchTapes: Best of Motown

Earlier this week, television stations around the globe clamored to cover Michael Jackson’s memorial service, and tens of millions of us turned on the tube (or the internet... Read more »

BitchTapes: Only The Good Die Young Edition

Happy 4th of July weekend! We know that a large portion of this great country is in tune with pop culture in one way or another. And music is a large part of that culture. We also know that last week, the King of Pop died, which has brought things to somewhat of a halt, so to speak. It is safe to... Read more »

BitchTapes: Critters & Crawlers

A city kid by nature, I am oddly fascinated by animals and bugs (as long as they aren't in my house). Plus, it seems particularly appropriate to dedicate my mix to critters during the season of camping and hikes. Check out my tribute to all things wild after the jump! Read more »

BitchTapes: The Heavy Rotation Edition

I try to think of a theme when I'm making mixes; for my friends, as a DJ and on these here BitchTapes. This week, however, the only theme tying these songs together is that I like them. Ergo, this week's BitchTapes is aptly titled the Heavy Rotation Edition. There's a random Led Zeppelin cover, new... Read more »
