I'm sure I'm missing a few. In any case, it's been a great 2-3 years for women artists in my view.
Waxahatchee is a cool Philly artist, regularly pops up at different shows around here. She was just on stage with Snail Mail at the show I saw a few weeks back.

I thoroughly enjoyed my first listen through. It's kind of weird to compare it to Debut given I've only heard that album twice but it seemed even more up my alley. And unlike Debut I couldn't identify any flat spots. Better singing, better beats, more cohesive mood. I'm now gonna try and track down a vinyl copy of Homogenic.

I quite like Waxahatchee, yeah. I've never listened to Speedy Ortiz, will give that a shot. I follow Neko Case on Twitter and she seems great, so will try her out too.

It has been - I'd add Ali Barter and Kardajala Kirridarra and Jen Cloher to that list. I don't much dig the Courtney Barnett record sadly. But Gump, please listen to Jen Cloher's most recent, I think it's self-titled. It's fucking fantastic.
