Minneapolis Ladies Mixtape

In honor of Minneapolis band Têtes Noires' latest release, The New American Dream, here is a mixtape of ladies currently dominating the electronic, hip-hop, and garage rock music scenes straight from the Land of 10,000 lakes. While Prince doesn't make a gender-bending appearance, the Têtes feminist-infused '80s hits are mixed in. So rock out to Kitten Forever, chill out to Vandaam and don't forget to get your GRRRL PRTY on and dance like a madwoman in between.

Dessa is not lacking for exposure, while many other women are.

What about Brute Heart?!

This is such a great mix, but my fave Minneapolis lady band was nowhere to be found. I discovered Brute Heart a few weeks ago, and I haven't been able to stop listening to them. They're very witchy and perfect winter music.
