October New Womxn in Music Round-Up

We’ve all had Miley Cyrus’ Heart of Glass cover on repeat for the past two weeks. Oh, you haven’t? Well, give it a listen! And while you are at it check out these new albums and songs from the past two months. With womxn from all genres, there is sure to be something else to break up that killer Blondie cover.

You Sad – Tkay Maidza

Tkay Maidza will make your summer last a little longer with her new funk-pop single You Sad. The colorful music video showcases the young artist’s creative eye, and connection to her inspirations. It’s like Sza and Tyler the Creator aesthetic and sound came together, to create a hyper-feminine, warm feel, and sound that will make you smile. Click to listen on YouTube.

Phosphorescent Panic – Chelsea Peretti

Comedian Chelsea Peretti released a debut album, titled Phosphorescent Panic, complete with EBM dance mixes, acoustic ballads, and pop jams that all eventually circle back to coffee. But while some songs are funny, including the opening track EXPRESSO featuring comedian Nick Kroll, others take a tongue in cheek look at her experience with anxiety, family trauma, and… oat milk. Click to listen on YouTube.

all my boyfriends EP – Silver Sphere 

A break-up album slows pop artists Silver Sphere down as she reminisces on her past love life and how it affects the present and future. Songs, like ghosts, are paired with stylized music videos inspired from classic Scooby-Doo, allows Silver to remain the lighthearted vibe she’s known for.

Edgelord – Dorian Electra (featuring Rebecca Black)

With a string of new singles coming off their debut album, Flamboyant, Dorian Electra collabs with viral video and musical artist, Rebecca Black, on Edgelord. Nothing is subtle with Dorian Electra, and this song is no different. Creating a sonic collage of internet culture phrases, memes, and hyper-pop sounds, the less than 2 minutes song will have you spinning. Click to listen on YouTube.
