I was asked to pick 6 songs for the “My Music” column in Prairie Dog/Planet S magazine’s June 9th issue. I picked out six tracks by feisty femmes that give me the feelz. The tracks and my notes are below, or I made a Spotify playlist for your streaming pleasure here. You should also pick up a copy of the ‘zine if you are in the land of the living skies because they are great publications that support local artists.
- Prairie Girl, Rah Rah (The Poet Is Dead) – a song to fall in love to: this song sounds like running through a field breathing hard, heart pounding too fast with bruised knees from clumsy tumbling.
- Smoke Signals, Jane Vain & The Dark Matter (Give Us These Hands) – a song to break up to: this song sounds like a candles black wick after the heat has faded and last wisp of smoke has singed the bone weary aches & pains of missing something that doesn’t exist anymore.
- Werkin’ Girl, Angel Haze (New York EP) – a song to get some to: this song sounds like a tiger on payday dangling the carrot off her leather whip.
- Eurydice, tooth ache. (Flash & Yearn) – a song to give some to: this song sounds like late night’s first light, warm to the touch.
- Winter Solstice, Cold Specks (I Predict a Graceful Expulsion) – a song to find yourself to: this song sounds like ribs cracking open to reveal buried treasures forgotten by children’s idle hands.
- Wall of Gold, Radiation Flowers (self-titled) – a song to get lost to: this song sounds like sneakers on concrete wandering too close to the edge of the world.
