A new world of Female Musicians

October 29, 2010 Neil

It all started with Ane Brun.

Rock, folk, indegenous, root, jrock, classic rock and novelty songs have always been enough to fill my ears. I considered Janis Joplin to be the goddess of rock and roll. Winterplay, Colbie Calliat, Fiona Apple and some Bjork for some cool weirdly worldly music.

Cat PowerThen I heard Ane Brun’s Big in Japan while looking for the trailer of the Hitoshi Matusomoto’s “Big Man Japan” movie. I started digging for more Ane Bruns. Treehouse Song, The Fall, Gillian and Linger With Pleasure from the Changing of Seasons album. Music new to me, and it was love at first hearing.  My ears may have been tired of all the rambling songs.

I remembered Regina Spektor through the songs Us and Hero, both OSTs of the hit movie 500 Days of Summer. My fascination didn’t end there. I looked for other Regina Spektor songs, fell in love with the vitality of the song Dance Anthem of the 80’s and the spiritual dialogue of Laughing With, and finally stumbling into her rendition of John Lennon’s Real Love, one of my favorite Lennon songs.

Regina SpektorAne and Regina’s kind of music is fresh. Fresh to my ears, that is. Came the simple songs of Cat Power: Lived in Bars, Hate, I don’t Blame You and Names.  It didn’t end there, I came across another powerful singer of really bizarre proportion. Her name is Kimya Dawson. Songs such as For Katie, Being Cool, I will Never Forget and 5 Years challenged my idea of a singing and songwriting.

The last singer to enter this personal list is Yael Naim. If you’re an Apple Computers fan, you may have heard the song she’s famed for New Soul, a beautiful song. Lonely, Endless Song of Happiness and Far Far are, in their own way, heartwarming.

I’m hoping to add more singers on this list. Feel free to name singers as powerful and talented as these musicians.
