THESE HAVE BEEN RELEASED THIS YEAR pt1

Well, it’s coming towards the end of 2022, and this is the time that many of us will sit and look back and wonder where it all went.

I used to do a thing called I Don’t Do Lists, but someone pointed out that technically they were, even though I have never had placings, best of, worst etc, so this year I am just putting out my end of year listening’s from 2022.

As ever, no positions, favourites, best of…. that, dear listeners and followers is for you to decide.

AUGUST 2022 LISTENING

During this long hot summer, like many, I have been preoccupied with other seemingly more pressing things than my website. Indeed, I am still trying to work out what to do with this site and also how to continue with Feminatronic.

That aside I have had a month of listening to music at night-time when it’s been cooler and often watching the sun set.

Here is Augusts listening, mostly (but not all) introspective, meditative and go well with the setting of the sun –

LISTENING TO THIS MONTH

It’s been a bit quiet here at the moment. Having a rethink about this site and how to continue with Feminatronic but here are some recent releases and listening I have come across in the past month.

I have been concentrating on Night Listening on Twitter, so some of the releases are quiet and reflective but not all.

#SOUNDCLOUDSPOTLIGHTMONTH pt1

I seem to have missed a whole month here but to be honest there are far more important things on my mind at the moment and I’m sure yours.

I have been highlighting some SoundCloud pages on twitter and thought it would be good to post them here too. As usual no preferences and literally just random…

8 TRACK

For a short while I wrote for the No Audience Underground zine TQ

For the past couple of years I put together playlists for the zine to introduce to a wider audience some of the artists that I had listened to since starting my Feminatronic journey. These lists were specific to the zine readership in that the music I selected was deemed to be more challenging, underground , experimental and not always solely female identifying artists. My aim was purely to get a predominantly male readership to consider things maybe outside their comfort zone and mine too.

Due to the natural development of the zine, my article was no longer required and so I thought that I would continue them here, starting with my very first –

My Listening 8 Tracker #1

I’m at the age where I spend a lot of time thinking about the past, some good and some not so good but the simple concept of my listening 8Tracker is based on happy hours of music discovery.
In case some of you don’t know, many years ago as a bored teenager a family acquaintance let me use her 8Track. Do you remember them? Huge cartridges that you fed into the front of a large wooden box, and with giant headphones on, you were transported to new sonic realms, in my case it was Roxy Music ‘Stranded’.
Taking this simple concept, I thought I would put together an 8 Track of my recent listening of musicians from around the world together with links. These artists create music that fits loosely into the NAU sound (there may be some leeway with this) but I think it’s always good to expand your listening horizons and after all this is my personal listening.
Oh, and they mostly also just happen to identify as female, unless otherwise stated ; )
No order. No preferences. Links where available .

Happy Listening.
