My music tastes have swung towards female artists lately, and for some reason, female groups. Here are three groups of ladies I'm currently listening to.
Antigone Rising -- Yes, if you were in a St*rbucks last year around this time you've heard them. I didn't pay attention back then and have just recently started listening to them. I'm not sure why the band is named after the daughter of Oedipus, there's a story there but I just haven't tracked it down. Here's a track from Killer Queen, a Queen tribute album, which is true to the original with some nice harmonies.
Fat Bottomed Girls mp3
(right click, Save Target As)
The Ditty Bops -- These two crack me up! Their songs are hilarious, irreverant and usually include either a harmonica or an accordian. Check them out.
Sister Kate mp3
The Be Good Tanyas -- They're from Vancouver, BC (my home town), so that automatically warrants a listen in my book. Turns out they have an interesting sound.
For The Turnstiles mp3
