Annie Clark, St Vincent.jpg

Greetings, feminists! Please click here for your June playlist. You can also view the track-list here. This month, I couldn’t resist the inclusion of ‘Pink Sunshine’ by Fuzzbox, a tune I was a big fan of as a youth. At the more highbrow end of the spectrum, I’ve recently discovered Agnes Obel, a Danish artist whose latest album Aventine is the perfect soundtrack for a bleak midwinter. She’s playing at Somerset House on 12 July, as part of their Summer Series and, incredibly, tickets are still available.

Although the sun is currently sojourning behind clouds, summer has arrived, and who better than Astrud Gilberto to sip your drink and soak up the rays to. The Lindstrom and Christabelle track is another seasonal tune that demands sunshine for maximum appreciation.

So much has been said and written about the genius that is Annie Clark’s St Vincent, particularly since her recent album release. Highlights for me, however, include this piece about St Vincent and gender, plus this short video of Annie taking part in Pitchfork’s ‘Over/Under’ series.

Just to say thank you so much for this playlist. It was the first time I heard Agnes Obel and have since become rather obsessed with her, listening to her albums almost daily and seeing her live in October which was the most wonderful experience. Thanks for introducing me to such beautiful music
