Radio LBB: Girl Crush
FKA Twigs, The Black Madonna, Bjork and more make up this playlist of awesome female musicians, by Leland’s Anna Richmond
(Little Black Book’s popular ‘Friday Tunes’ channel has undergone a bit of a makeover. We’ll still be bringing you weekly sounds from adlanders around the globe, but from now on these playlists will be under the label ‘Radio LBB’. So keep you eyes - and ears! - peeled.)
"You might already celebrate #WomanCrushWednesdays, but why be restricted by a day of the week!? Girl crushes know no bounds of time and space. With that in mind, I’ve pulled together a playlist for my perfect Friday night, soundtracked by just a few of the most potent female musicians that we’ve had the privilege of sharing a planet with. Let the chill vibes of Erykah Badu ease you into your evening before ramping up the energy levels with the defiant voices of FKA Twigs, PJ Harvey and Bjork. Before long you’ll be ready to tear up the dance-floor to productions by likes The Black Madonna and Ellen Allien. Let the house lights come up to Cheryl Lynn’s ‘Got To Be Real’ and bask in the closing moments of a night spent in the best company."
