Hi.

Welcome to Make 1,2 - a space for reviews about albums, songs and artists who are changing the way we think about society today.

12 out of the 15 songs on this week's playlist feature women, most of them exclusively. This was unintentional but ended up creating a worldwide kaleidoscope of feminist songs, from the glitchy opener by A l l i e to the energetic dance number guided by Nomi Ruiz to the Afro-Latino roots of Ibeyi and Danitsa. The initial title for this playlist was "Interia," meant to reflect a forward motion that happens without disruption or interference. But the other implication was that the motion itself was static and routine. There's hardly anything routine about what I present here. The playlist, largely compromised of newcomers, continually surprise and delight as they explore the themes of love, embodiment and self-reflexive through a variety of different musical stylings and thematic approaches.
