This week, we have assembled a playlist of women who may have been a little down at one point. Luckily for us, they picked up guitars and microphones and shared their distress with the rest of us, making really great records as a result.
Gothic, sullen, and somber, these women all sing their sorrows away through different channels but are collectively connected through a common theme.
As always, we invite you to view our profile over at 8tracks.com, where all previous mixes can be found. It's fun to join and make your own as well, for serious.
