Womxn of the Week

BARBARI Thoughts

Curated by Nora Rothman

At a time when streams are everything, as listeners, we can uplift the causes we care about by listening to the voices of their champions. Womxn of the Week brings you fresh music from exclusively femme-identifying and gender nonconforming artists. It spans all genres, and places a special emphasis on undiscovered indie artists.

The success of a song has become all about whether it gets play-listed on Spotify. Play-listing leads to discovery from labels and managers. Having your song streamed side-by-side with big artists will make you more likely to pop up in Spotify Radio or Recommended For You algorithms. This playlist is a cross-genre mix of womxn artists, the behemoths and the rising stars, to lift up the undiscovered artists who need and deserve it the most.
