women are in complete control – selection no.32
MIW (Music I Want), a weekly series in which I break down current releases, past favourites & whats on offer now. After scrutinization, we come to the top 6 selection for the week.
For Selection NO.32, women seemingly take over the listings. Whether it be the form of a model for the artwork, in an old fashion ideology to exploit men, a pornstar providing vocals in kinky ‘Sado’ release’, complete with fetish leather artwork, or a woman working everything from the artwork down to the finest technical details.
It’s an interesting prospect to look at roles women have played in music, especially vinyl releases, compared to something a lot more modern such as the “Jasss” release, in which there is nothing notably sexy, however, the music is completely different in terms of comparability and comes across with an air of confidence and manages to execute its message without nipple tassels and G-strings.
