Though we had noted a lack of female voice in music writing, further investigation has unearthed a wealth of rock journalism written by women, both from the past and in the present. We created AudioFemme to help make those voices better heard; there’s so much opinion, attitude, appreciation, humor, and terrific writing by women who love music as much as we do.
While AudioFemme is primarily written and edited by Annie White and Lindsey Rhoades (you can learn more about Les Femmes HERE) we want to have guest contributors, and often!!! We’ll be seeking you ladies out in the near future, but until then feel free to submit – if you’re a DJ, you run a venue, you work in a record store, you play in a band, or you heard something you just can’t get out of your head. Make mixes and we’ll post them. Ramble about your muses and obsessions – we’d love to read it. There are no limits to the scope of genres we’d like to cover nor to the type of writing we’d like to publish here, as long as it is passionate and positive!
Our ultimate goal for this blog is to take it to the streets, incorporating the way we experience music in our daily lives. We want to make you mixes, host parties, book shows, dance with you, and link with organizations like Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls and Make Music New York, all in addition to a smattering of video posts, show reviews, interviews, album raves, and musical rants.
Thank you so, so much for joining us.
The sound is a hail-storm of genre-defying magic that spans jazz, noise, folk, hip hop, experimental and many other forms. Her lyrics are venomous and then sweet, her rhythms are lightning and whisper into the haunting DIY spaces she stumbles into. Afropunk writes: “Her ambient tracks invite the listener to get lost in a world that is of her own devising.” Mal Devisa’s sound is one you should see to truly hear. With incredible live performances, the project becomes more of a feeling, a moment, a time in space that requires you to get real and lost, with no intentions of being found.
In the past two years, Mal Devisa has earned her way into the arms of many beloved spaces such as NPR, Afro-punk, Cypher-league and various Indie music sources. Her constant touring and ability to store socks in her bass-case indicate she will not be stopping any time soon.
