Little Simz MEDIUM

Ay oop! Please click here for your October 2015 playlist. You can also view the track-list and listen here.

I’ve included some classics in this months’ playlist – Blondie, Patti Smith, Eurythmics – and some newer tunes. Little Simz is a new artist from London, who I’m pretty excited about. She rejects sexism and materialism – “Talking about money and bitches: what is that? It’s mainly just lies” – and has just self-released her debut album A Curious Tale of Trials + Persons, which Mixmag (amongst others) have given nine out of ten. Read more about her here, here and here.

U.S. Girls is the brainchild of Toronto based, Illinois native Meg Remy. Like many of the best artists, her music defies categorisation. Listen and see what you think. You can read more about her here and here.

For those of you who’ve never seen the Eurythmics video for ‘Love is a Stranger’, you’re in for a treat (2.30 *gulp*)…

I’d love to hear your thoughts in the box below. Don’t be shy!

The picture is a head and shoulders close-up shot of Little Simz performing at SXSW earlier this year. She wears a baseball cap, red, white and navy long-sleeved tracksuit top and holds the microphone to her mouth, mid-flow. She looks ahead. She looks good.
