BitchTapes: Girls Who Drum
"Learn to play the drums. The world needs more girl drummers. The world needs your wild, pounding, dreaming heart." --Natalie Angier, Women: An Intimate Geography
One of my many resolutions for 2011 is to learn how to play the drums. So I decided to get inspired by making a mix. Here it is—a sampling of songs backed by rad ladies!
1. MNDR - Fade to Black
2. The Shaggs - Philosophy of the World
3. STLS - ABC
4. ShellShag - Save Yourself
5. Afrirampo - Miracle Lucky Girls
6. Telepathe - Envoy
7. Purple Rhinestone Eagle - Sleep, Golden Sleep
8. Vivian Girls - Tell the World
9. I.U.D. - Daddy
10. Talk Normal - Warrior
11. Explode Into Colors - Sharpen the Knife
12. ESG - Dance to the Beat of My Moody
