Sleater Kinney was my first introduction to the Riot Grrrl movement back in the days - hello, who doesn't love Jumpers? - and I was thrilled to see them coming out with a new album. And believe me, it's a good one!
Some of my favourite songs on the album include No Anthems, A New Wave, Bury Our Friends and Price Tag.
Because listening to this song will forever bring back memories of driving to Glastonbury in a car packed full of camping gear and cans, with some of the best people I know. I did miss his set at Glasto, so I'm even more excited to catch him, this weekend.
Listen to it here.
UH HUH HER
One of my favourite bands as a teenager, I've slowly been rediscovering Uh Huh Her. There is something really soothing and yet electrifying about Camilla Grey and Leisha Hailey's vocals.
Some of my favourite songs off the album are Not A Love Song (in all its Myspace-y glory), Wait Another Day and Explode. And let's not even talk about this live acoustic version of Common Reaction, shall we?
This is another blast from the past, but I've been listening to Blur non-stop since I saw them at Hyde Park, last month. They were incredible and I had a blast dancing around to some of my favourite tunes, such as Boys and Girls, Song 2 and Parklife.
Clearly, this summer was a very retro one for me. What have you been listening to lately?
