1. Love and Sas - Don’t Stop Now
This R&B group never got as big as the USA’s TLC, but their fun pop tunes deserve some recognition.
2. Lesbians on Ecstasy - Bitschy
Electronic Lezzies on E is actually covering “All Women are Bitches” by Fifth Column (see track 7) on this song, but it’s hard to pass up a good reclamation!
3. Hunter Valentine - Break This
This song is off this trio’s earlier Impatient Romantic, but look for their new album Lessons from the Late Night out now.
4. Pony Up! - Shut Up and Kiss Me
Nothing says “I love you” like complete resentment (and you can tap you foot to it, too).
5. The Be Good Tanyas - When Doves Cry
How many folk bands do you know who cover Prince?
6. Tegan & Sara - Alligator
Everyone’s favorite cute-coiffed queer sister band hails from Calgary, Alberta
7. Fifth Column - Donna
This punk band would have male go-go dancers at their show.
8. The Corn Sisters - 90 Miles an Hour (Down a Dead End Street)
Is it possible for me to make a Bitchtapes without something by Neko Case? Yes, but I don’t like do it! The Corn Sisters, a project with Carolyn Mark is just one of her Canadian collaborations.
A big thank you to ex-Bitch intern and (my Canadian pal) Shaamini!
