Little Simz joins with her SAULT colleague Cleo Sol on this song described as “a soulful love letter to women around the world.” “I love it when I see women doing their thing and looking flawless; I’m here for that!” Simz said. “It’s empowering, it’s inspiring; I wanted to say thank you and I wanted to celebrate them.” Little Simz performed "Woman" in a special KEXP Live at Home session back in September 2021 - if you haven't seen that performance - and her conversation with Gabriel - head over to our YouTube channel and check it out! https://youtu.be/lz8pNa_YoMc https://littlesimz.bandcamp.com/

Our Bodies
by She Keeps Bees

Nests, their second full-length, was admired by the Guardian as “sparse, soulful and defiantly retro.” Their third LP, Dig On, was praised by the BBC as "an album of fire, spirit, and sweat." https://shekeepsbees.com/

Woman
by Karen O & Danger Mouse
(70 plays) | (0 fans)

More from KEXP on this incredible collaboration: https://kexp.org/read/2019/1/15/karen-o-and-danger-mouse-reveal-lux-prima-release-date-share-woman/. Karen O said in a press release that the song came "like a bolt out of the blue" when she was in the studio with Danger Mouse. Her first take found her "blurting unintelligible words", to which Danger Mouse responded "Dang! That was intense." The atmosphere was volatile with it being just after the election. A lot of people felt helpless like you do when you’re a scared kid looking for assurance that everything is gonna be alright. I like to write songs that anyone can relate to but this one felt especially for the inner child in me that needed the bullies out there to know you don’t f**k with me. I’m a woman now and I’ll protect that inner girl in me from hell and high water.”"

Men Explain Things to Me
by TacocaT
(19 plays) | (0 fans)

"Tacocat’s third studio album, Lost Time (an X-Files reference, doy), is their first with producer Erik Blood. Blood’s sounds are wide and expansive, bringing a fullness to the band’s familiar sparkling snarl. The Tacocat of Lost Time are triumphantly youthful but also plainspoken and wise, as catchy as they are substantive." https://tacocat.bandcamp.com/album/lost-time-3 Learn more about the Rebecca Solnit essay "Men Explain Things to Me," from which Tacocat got the title of their song: https://www.guernicamag.com/rebecca-solnit-men-explain-things-to-me/ http://tacocatdotcom.com/

OOH LA LA
by Goldfrapp
(91 plays) | (1 fan)

Goldfrapp began work on "Ooh La La" in late 2004 in a small rented house in the countryside of Bath, England. The song was composed as a collaborative effort between Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory while jamming in the recording studio, bouncing song ideas off each other. Goldfrapp contributed the song's lyrics, and has described the song as being "sulky, sexual and a bit ambiguous." https://bit.ly/30qAPg0 "Ooh La La" was Goldfrapp's first song to feature the electric guitar, an instrument that they had avoided due to its overly recognisable rhythm. When they recorded the song, Gregory played the keyboard bass as Goldfrapp sang. Her microphone picked up the "clattering" of Gregory's pressing the keys, which they added to the chorus. The song is written in the common verse-chorus form and features additional instrumentation from synthesizers and a bass guitar. https://bit.ly/2qarfwZ https://www.goldfrapp.com/

Mad
by Solange feat. Lil Wayne
(10 plays) | (0 fans)

"I ran into this girl, I said, "I'm tired of explaining" Man, this shit is draining But I'm not really allowed to be mad...." This song finds Solange exploring black emotional vulnerability, as she questions why African Americans are always seen as angry. It follows the interlude "Dad Was Mad" where her father Matthew Knowles recounts his childhood experiences of racism, which made him an angry young man. The song features a verse from Lil Wayne where the New Orleans native lists some of things that have made him mad. Lil Wayne addresses in his verse his suicide attempt at age 12 when he shot himself in the chest. "And when I attempted suicide I didn't die I remember how mad I was on that day": https://genius.com/Solange-mad-lyrics https://solange.blackplanet.com/
