Higher – Tash Sultana

THIS CHICK IS SERIOUSLY BADASS! Easily one of the most talented and unique music magicians I have come across this year, and also a turbo babe. Rooted in the busking lifestyle and hailing from Melbourne, I believe Tash gained mass popularity through live recordings done in her home and then put on YouTube for ze world to see. The songs “Jungle” and “Notion” were picked up by the Triple J radio station for good reason (GO LISTEN TO THEM RIGHT NOW PLEASE) and the rest is history. Her voice is almost haunting in the best kind of way and her creativity with looping and various effects pedals is unlike any other. This song in particular slapped me in the face. It’s raw. It’s real. It’s amazing. Happy listening you beautiful humans!

Fire – Beth Ditto (Disciples Remix)

Beth Ditto a vocal babe residing in New York describes herself as a “fat, feminist lesbian from Arkansas”. You go girl, you define you. Her voice has been paralled to Etta James, Janis Joplin, and Tina Turner. Obviously she knows who the fuck she is and I love the empowered vibe she presents.

This remix is super groovy, that one sound reminds me of when you take your index finger and move it up and down your lips creating that funny noise that’s nostalgic of my childhood.

“I mostly like everything, that’s not always a good thing.” – Beth Ditto
