We’re excited to announce that, as of today, qmunicate is to start curating Spotify playlists along with our regular music section output. And you can access it here!
This is in an effort to generate regular material for our readers and to showcase the best artists around, chosen by our musically-inclined editors, columnists and contributors. We’ve compiled one playlist already in light of International Women’s Day last week – ‘qmunicate’s Favourite Women in Music’ – with 20 contributors, amongst whom are our music editor, Michaela Barton, and our incoming and outgoing editors-in-chief, Cat Acheson and Scott Wilson. We wanted to demonstrate the often-overlooked impact that women have had on music in recent history, to dispel commonly-held notions that women only listen to or create certain types of music.
As such, the playlist contents span a wide time period, and an even wider array of genres. Showcasing such artists as Billie Holiday, Chelsea Wolfe, Portishead, PJ Harvey, Laura Marling and Halsey. The eclectic mixture of genres and styles will ensure that there’s a gem in there for everyone to discover. We hope you enjoy listening, and be sure to stay tuned for new playlists by following us on Spotify, Twitter, Facebook, and in real life.
