Your Weekly Women to Listen to: Warpaint, Neon Hitch, The Ettes and more

on

Since I got to see some really great female acts at Lollaplooza last weekend, I’ve decided to give you the lowdown on some of the performers. I’m going to skip talking about Lady Gaga, though, because she is an enigma who has already taken over the hearts and minds of most of the world.

Eryka Badu

File Under: Hip-Hop, neo-soul, righteous babe, amazing entertainer, poet

From: Dallas, TX

For fans of: Jill Scott, Outkast, Sade, being funkdafied

Bonus:

Your bonus to yourself should be to go out and get Mama’s Gun and her live album from ’97. These are life-altering

albums.

Metric



File Under:
Alternative rock from a gorgeous Canadian with maybe a tinge of New Wave

From: The great maple leaf country

For fans of: Liz Phair, Tegan and Sara, New Order, ripped jeans (the good kind)

Bonus: Emily Haines is so, so hot

 

Neon Hitch



File Under:
Electro-pop down-tempo cover artist who hasn’t put an album out yet but it’s in the works!



From:

London, however she literally grew up traveling. Her family raised her

as a performer (she’s a trained trapeze artist, fire swinger and stilt

walker) and was the subject of a documentary about wanderers.

For fans of: Not knowing what’s coming next, remixes, covers



Bonus: She’s worked with Imogen Heap, Sky Ferreira and Ryan Tedder, a huge hit maker.

 

Nervo

File Under: Hot, hot, hot sister DJs making music for the kids to dance to



From: Australia



For fans of: Getting nasty on the dancefloor, staring at DJs while they spin, blondes, clubbing, David Guetta



Bonus: One of them was wearing a leather jacket while dancing and spinning in the hot summer heat. Apparently she doesn’t sweat like I do.
