This week's mixtape comes to us from the folks behind the feminist playing cards deck. Fourteen artists created portraits of 56 feminist musicians for the deck—for example, check out Martha Rich's portrait of Josephine Baker as the ace of hearts. The creative team is looking to create a second deck of cards featuring a whole new round of artists and musicians. They're accepting applications from artist who want to participate until October 15th. Go apply!
To get people pysched up for the project, this mixtape features songs from all the musicians emblazoned on the spades of the first feminist playing card deck. This “SHOOTING THE MOON” mix features songs by Kathleen Hanna, Patti Smith, Missy Elliott, Ari Up, Tori Amos, Genya Ravan, Edith Piaf, Janet Weiss, Emma Gaze, and Bebe.
