Best track of 2012 part 2...


Gaggle
Week two of our best tracks of 2012 on The Other Woman on Amazing Radio, which appear in no particular order, and boy are we glad we’re doing another week of this next week. It’s been such a strong year for music from female artists and female fronted bands and this looks set to tip over into 2013 with the BBC’s Sound of 2013 list and our very own Tips for 2013 being dominated by women.

This is something that must be celebrated as the hallowed domain of rock, that has always been assumed to be for boys only, sees a new generation coming through for whom this just simply does not make any sense. It’s refreshing and an exciting signpost of things to come. A Mojo Magazine cover that doesn’t feature a wrinkled old rocker dude? Soon, friends, soon!
