This episode of femchord is all about the music that gets us through the dog days. These recently released songs radiate summer vibes, from the tropical sounds of Maria Usbeck and Maggie Rogers into the heavier, sultry beats of Bishop Briggs and Deap Vally.
Some of the featured artists are brand new: Marian Hill’s I Want You is the first single from their debut album, which comes out June 24. Shura’s What’s It Gonna Be? is also off her debut album, coming out July 8. Bishop Briggs and Maggie Rogers have only released singles so far.
