Kicking off the show today with a new single from Tulsa based phenom, Branjae! The track is called “Free Facts” and you should get yourself acquainted with the story and message on her bandcamp page. While you’re there, show your support by purchasing the music as well.
Also new to rotation on Ladies Skate Only, INEZ. An incredible vocalist, songwriter, producer and more. Her album Voicemails And Conversations dropped in 2019. It’s an album packed full of just that. But these conversations are really making me feel something. I’m gonna keep exploring this album over the next few episodes and I hope you’ll do that with me.
Plus, new music from Pisha! The project is that of Madeline Kassen (also in Tada!) and all of the tracks keep creeping back into my head. The new album Threnody is both haunting and vibrant and you’ll enjoy this new track in the mix.
Finally, I’ve got a set of tunes featuring music from Dirty Projectors, Thao and the Get Down Stay Down and Gemma. I’ve been listening to music from Thao and Felicia Douglass a lot before bed and I swear it’s giving me the coolest dreams. Maybe you should try it too.
As always, click the links and SUPPORT these artists by buying their music. After you buy… then stream away.
