Here is a mix of female-based music I discovered hiding on my computer. Most of the tracks were recorded directly from the artists’ Myspace page whilst on an epic internet/Myspace hunt sometime over the summer. Many of the musicians were unsigned at the time. The music is predominantly dreamy/ambient-type things – I guess – but there are a few folk/guitar-based songs too. The tracks are unlabelled. I’ve decided to put out the mix without artist or track names. I quite like the idea of people judging the songs on the basis of the music-alone and not what country they’re from, what genre they’ve been assigned too or what they look like on myspace. Hope there’s something on there you enjoy. Barney x
