Your Weekly Women to Listen To: Zap Mama, En Vouge, Rachael Cantu and more

Good afternoon everybody! Today has really run away from me for some reason – I think mostly because I spent a good chunk of time getting lost looking at different bands on the internet. Also, I’m trying to figure out if I think Nancy Pelosi is a hot older lady or not. I’m pretty sure all signs are pointing to yes. Alright I’ll stop being a creep (for now). Here’s some music!

Jessy Bulbo

File Under: Dance-inducing riot grrrl punk

From: Mexico City, Mexico

For Fans Of: Le Tigre, Bratmobile, The Plasticines, amusement park fun houses, glockenspiel, boobs or Powerpuff Girls made to look like boobs, pissing off your parents.

Bonus: I mean honestly, the background image of her MySpace page is bonus enough. Powerpuff Girls with boob faces – it doesn’t get much better than that.

Geri X.

File Under: Indie rock, sometimes trance-folk, singer/songwriter

From: Bulgarian-born, living in St. Petersburg, Florida

For Fans Of: Ellie Goulding’s cover of Robyn’s “Be Mine,” Kings of Leon, Fleetwood Mac, wearing scarves indoors, Lissie, old CK ads.

Bonus: Geri is offering some great free downloads at her ReverbNation page.

Light Asylum

File Under: Experimental electro, post-punk, weird-core

From: Brooklyn

For Fans Of: Aerea Negrot, Grace Jones, multi-media performance art, Peaches, Exit Through The Giftshop.

Bonus: I actually found out about this band through Kathleen Hanna’s fantastic blog.

Stone Fox

File Under: Angst rock, riot grrrl, acoustic-punk, metal

From: San Francisco

For Fans Of: L7, The Donnas, Converse, safety pins as a fashion statement, Schlitz beer, kickball, tube socks.

Bonus: Do yourself a favor and promise me (OK, so you’re doing me a favor – but trust me it will pay off) you will listen to multiple songs of theirs. Like, keep their page open and just listen to the entire thing. Their sound changes from song to song so just stick with it and you’ll find something you enjoy, or you might enjoy everything!
