|Recent Female Singer/songwriters I Have Been In Love With|
heres a list of artists or bands that are led by female singers that i have really gotten into recently. this doesnt consist of any of the metal bands that have female vocals. this is mainly folk, indie, or trip-hop (i guess you can call it that). alphabetic order. please feel free to recommend me more female artists, but no KT Tunstall please because i dont like her that much
bascially the best album out of all these on the list. i have all her other albums as well and they are all amazing (Volta being my least fav though)
Misery Is A Butterfly
lo-fi, indie stuff. very subtle but can be very haunting at times. 23 is a good album as well
You Are Free
the only album of theirs i have but very good album.
i want to say trip-hop but im not sure thats what it would be under since im not too familiar with the genre (except for Massive Attack)
Love In the Time of Science
like a more mellow Bjork, and she is from Iceland as well. gorgeous voice
|6|| ||Emilie Simon|
thanks to the review, i checked this out. really good French pop and it is much better than all the other pop thats out
Breath From Another
more trip-hop stuff.
the album that kind of started my venture into more female singers. still one of my favs out of all that ive heard. i listen to this a lot when relaxing or resting
very unique album, she takes folk to the next step and she really shines. i need her other albums
the oldest album i have on this list. made in 1971, Mitchell excels at making a very bluesy folk album
i didnt like it too much at first but it is some good pop
Songs III: Bird on the Water
for fans of Feist, i recommend getting this. very mellow and chill stuff. her voice stays calm throughout
i never really thought id like this style but its good, she uses a lot of influences from 50's
this is actually a prog rock album, but they have wonderful female vocals. if Mikael Akerfeldt loves this (where i got the rec from actually on his myspace page), then you should too
To Bring You My Love
probably my second fav artist i have discovered on this list. i have all her other albums already and all of them are very good. what i love about her is that she never holds herself back lyrically. for example Who the Fuck? is an intense song for this genre
forget all the hate i was giving her once, but i have quite fallen in love with her voice. the music isnt that outstanding but her vocals are wonderful. she was a grower
|17|| ||RF & Lili de la Mora|
soft voice yet somewhat bit poppy at times.
I Love Your Glasses
another indie artist. the vocals can be a bit irritating at times, but not too shabby
|19||She & Him|
Zooey is a beautiful singer, i just wish M. Ward wasnt part of this. but her voice outshines everything. i would love to see her do a solo album
gorgeous voice, and French. she also does a very cool cover of the song Toxic by Ms. Spears.
|This list needs The Gathering.|
|i have Home by The Gathering but i havent listened to it yet. but i should say that you need this list more|
|Put Regina Spektor number one and you've got a list. That's just my bias though. She & Him, Yael Naim, Blonde Redhead, Feist, Cat Power, Bjork..all amazing. Joanna Newsom isn't too bad but her songs drag a little sometimes. Mad props for the Paatos as well. |
|Love Pj Harvey, apart from her albums I've only heard, 1, 9, 10 and 16. |
|radianteclipse: this is an alphabetic order, but if it wasnt she would be in the top 5 or top 10. what other paatos album should i get?|
hermitspancho: pj does in fact rule. i recommend you put all these albums you havent heard yet on a wishlist
|you should check out "myra lee" by cat power.|
and "is this desire?" by pj harvey.
anyways, sweet list.
|charlie: ill get Myra Lee soon. but if you read my description for PJ it says i already have all her albums, thanks though lol. Is This Desire is excellent though, probably my second fav album of hers|
|oh sorry, i didnt read the description for that one...|
havent heard of 18 or 19...
|I'm interested in some of this list. Joanna Newsom is really great. Really really unique.|
|Try St. Vincent if you haven't already, I love her music. Also do not judge The Gathering by Home, it's their worst album since the early 90s.|
|try A Fine Frenzy|
i like pretty much all the artists you have here so maybe you'll enjoy these two
oh and Gregory and the Hawk
|thanks you both. ill look into those|
|totally agree on 1 (regarding "Volta"). i prefer her older records so much more.|
|Frou Frou and maybe Aimee Mann.|
|Great call on 1 Jrowa, nice to see you've become a beliver. I agree that's her best too. 8 and 16 rule. French accents have always bothered me though, not too keen from what i've heard of these french chicks.|
|im taking french right now and i have really fallen in love with the language. its very romantic. |
i am indeed a Bjork believer. Regina took a good while to really appreciate mainly because the instrumentals arent that great.
im sure theres some artists here you would like
|I'll check out 5 first for obvious reasons and then 2 and 4. Didn't like Emile Simon unfortunately. Can't get past it but the singer from "The Gathering" has a solo album you should check out. Aqua De Annique, it's definetly worth checking out and definetly one of my favorite singers I've gotten into this year.|
|I love girls. I'm sorry. Women. Women with talent is even sexier than full C-cups. But, I am seriously lacking in knowledge about this lot here. Regina Spektor is pure fun. Just started hearing the Pattos tonight. Marissa Nadler and Feist, I've heard of, without actually hearing. Bjork and Blonde Redhead, I've had my fill of. I'm more of a 'Tori Amos' kinda guy. I haven't heard a single album of hers that's let me down in any way, shape or form. None. Zippo. |
I see 'Joni Mitchell' here and I never, ever, never thought of giving her music a chance. That is, until someone told me that she puts out. That she gives hand-jobs to her fans. Seriously? No, not all. I should have said, "That is, until someone told me that she once colaborated with Jazz-Whiz Bassist, Jaco Pastorius at the tail end of the 1970's." No exaggeration when I say that two of the three studio albums from this union are, not only, by far, the best stuff in Joni Mitchell catalog, but some of the best female-vocalist stuff I've ever heard. 'Hejira' and 'Don Juan's Reckless Daughter' are absolutely stellar and stunning recordings. Pastorius adds all kinds of crazy-beautiful counterpoint, color and extra melody to the brilliant compositions of 'JM'. Those two albums, plus the live outing with Pastorius, Pat Metheny and Lyle Mays, entitled 'Shadows and Light'. I never thought I could like 'JM' until I heard the stuff from the Jaco-years. PLEASE, check out just two short video tracks from the 'Shadows and Light' live DVD. Jaco and Pat add a much needed dimension to the music. Listen to the harmonics that Jaco inserts on the second track. Unbelievable.
|You should try Hanne Hukkelberg.|
She's some Norwegian singer who I heard a little bit of. its good stuff.
And she shares a first name with this fantastic German girl I know.
