Brian’s Mixtape #22: Made by Maids

Brian at home

A Snowy Owl on Brian’s roost recently complained that she only listened to music made by boys. And as much as Brian – and the rest of us at FFS for that matter – love our bearded folkies, there’s a-whole-nother gender out there that ought not be left out, despite its lack of chin fluff.

Brian was all set to start making Snowy this mixtape of female artists and female-fronted bands when he thought ‘hang on one acorn-scoffing minute!’ You see, Brian realised that his pals at Wears the Trousers magazine are infinitely better qualified to recommend the best in estrogen-rich music, specialising in it as they do.

So from the ears of WTT’s editor Alan Pedder comes this wonderful playlist: some old, some new, all beautiful.
