Reviewed 2007-07-09 
Wow. Monster comp of amazing women making music, most from Europe and the U.S. Experimental, pop, punk, dance music, no wave.... Nearly all tracks are pretty up-tempo. Extremely diverse – from mainstream like Bjork to underground bizarre fest Kevin Blechdom. Bay Area artists marked with L below – Erase Errata, Boyskout, Kevin Blechdom. Lots of the artists are political, and many are multimedia artists - visual artists, producers, performance artists, etc. The comp was curated by a woman from Chicks On Speed (track 1/14). Researching the bands on this comp was very educational about allllllll kinds of feminist stuff, fascinating women doing awesome art/music. Reviewed by genre for each CD. My only complaint about the CD is that often I like other songs by these women way better, the less "club hit" type stuff. But loads of gems.


CD1

Punk-ish:
*14. We want plastic surgery, ironic.
L*19. Greaaaaaat guitar solo beginning. Lesbian, a little bad girl, “she was a switch” :) “I don’t need to be someone I’m not.” Slightly dischordant, new wave.
L20. Post punk, up-tempo. Great rhythms on the vocals, witty lyrics.

Misc:
*21. Experimental. Dark sound, glitchy beat, layering, “no bra”, cool lyrics.
7. Pop. Low pretty female vox, slow guitar beat.
15. Funky. Active bassline, bossa nova-like percusssion, laundromat lyrics. Vivien Goldman, founding member of The Flying Lizards, professor of punk and reggae at NYU.

Electropop:
3. cheezy synth beats, lots of rapped lyrics, strong german accent.
6. hard beat, high squeaky vox
*8. Lots of vocal harmonies, catchy rhythm.
*12. Catchy. Anat Ben David sometimes sounds more avant-garde.
*13. Disorted, punk-ish, French. Spy parts.
17. Electroclash. Clubbing song, dreamy, “i want it, i want to feel it.”

Electronica:
5. dreamy vox
11. i don’t like this.
16. Hard beat, a little industrial/techno, repetitive. In German and French. Founding member of Talking Heads.

FCC:
*2. “fuck”. my favorite track on the whole comp. it’s dirrrrrrrty. lesbian sex, featuring Peaches, rap-ish.
4. “shit”, “bullshit”. le tigre – lists lots of famous feminist artists, writers and musicians.
9. “fuck” a lot. a little industrial, with a high gritty dirty taunting/snotty vox.
L*10. “shut the fuck up and fuck me you fuckin’ fuck up bah bah bah” sped up to ridiculous speeds and in choral harmony. ridiculous, great.
18. various sexual FCC’s – cock, ass... punk/house, lots of panting, crass and a little political.

CD2

Experimental:
1. 7-piece girl drum, bass, vocals. Tribal, fun, funky/surf, lots of percussion. Gang vocals toward end are great.
8. Silly, poking, synths, singing about changes in a high silly voice. Weird, good.
*11. Kick-ass punk, experimental. Tobi Vail was in Bikini Kill. Screaming, riot grrrl.

Post Punk:
**2. Typical Girls live. Mindblowing and awesome. Sooooooo alive.
3. Delta 5, 1979. Funky, great bassline, awesome awesome vocals. “Can I have a taste of your ice cream. Can I lick the crumbs from your table? Can I interfere in your crisis? No, mind your own business.”
15. Swiss post-punk/new wave. Whistling, saxophone, low fem vox. Super catchy.

Electronica:
4. Anti consumerism, cheezy sounds, fuzz-effect on the voice.
6. techno-y, dreamy sounds, one woman in this band used to be a porn star, recently made a documentary about political atrocities in burma, and used to be in the post-punk band Malaria!.
7. “digital hardcore”, spy lyrics?
*9. Downtempo, childish voice, pretty weird, good, best are the music concrete sounds.
10. Downtempo Bjork, howling, overdubbing pretty echoey voice, storm sounds, experimental-sounding.
12. Slow-mid, political lyrics, vox a little like Bjork.
13. Slow, soothing. the most mainstream-sounding track here.
*17. Hard techno, industrial-sounding. Funny lyrics – “Here come the lesbians. They’re creeping down the stairs.”
18. Slow, synths, whale sounds?, low vox, dreamy, gets a harder beat, sexy, normal.
19. slightly trippy and weird, definite beat, distortion. this woman was in throbbing gristle, was a stripper and porn actress for a while.

Hiphop:
16. San Francisco trans man. “Emo-hop.” Dance-along.

Electropop:
14. Fun, bouncy synths, unique vocals, dancey and a little sad.

*11. Funny sample art, silly cowboy sounds, bleepy electronics, banjo, guitar, lots of layers.

*14. Funny, sarcastic. Rapping, making fun of stuff. Fake accent.

Punk-ish:

Electropop:
1. New wave, spy.
3. Gothy/dark/industrial/poppy.
4. Club hit sound.
9. I hate this song. “I’m too sexy for my jeans, I have to take them off, before you put your hands on my ass.” Club hit, annoying like Spice Girls are annoying.
10. “Electropunk” – I like their other songs I’ve heard wayyyyyy better.
19. Club hit sound, some hiphop, reggae, good.
