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 .

OK, I do do lists but not in the sense I started this a coupe of years ago. I post things individually on twitter and Instagram to give the releases space in their own right but I suppose when I put them together in an overview here, they consist of a list 😂😂
…but there’s no preferences, order, rank and that’s what is important to me.
Right…now I’ve got that out of the way here’s the next collection and due to other comitments I am going to continue the icymi non lists for this month of January.
Which brings me to the important bit – Happy New Year and all the Best for 2022 and thanks for sticking around.
And if you can’t find anything on the I Don’t Do Lists , try this collection from A Closer Listen-
If 2020 was the most surreal year in recent memory, 2021 was the runner-up. A rollercoaster of emotion was supplanted by a mountain of malaise. And yet, many artists broke through with the finest albums of their careers. Some of these were direct responses to the world as it was, while others were simply written […]
If you still want some listening suggestions, there are some great one’s here –
The natural world existed long before the creation of instruments: music made by wind and waves, birds and beasts. During the pandemic, many people have rediscovered the aural joys of nature: music that is always playing, and that can best be heard without headphones. Field recording artists capture these sounds like others do photographs, and […]
So, I’ve just had a little look at some of the Electronic History pages on Instagram and you wouldn’t have thought that there were any women in electronic music / instrument development but did find a few nice posts via Synth History –
