    I’ve been listening to a bit of Lana del Rey and Florence etc and now I’m after some recommendations on good female singers please.

    Any ideas.

    Emeli sande, Norah Jones, and little dragon(I know it’s a group)for me, 3 different sounds but all enjoyable, old 60s acts knock the socks off most of the crap today though especially when looking at female vocalists

    How long a list do you want? I’m particularly biased towards female singers, but at 3.00am it’s a bit late to compile one now.
    I’ll just leave you with a track by one of my absolute favourites coveting another, from the Vinyl tv series soundtrack:

    A proper list tomorrow.

    And I know she’s just become the “latest thing” but I really like Laura Marling, but have to be in the right mindset..

    Alice Russell, should be way better known than she is, keeping it niche I guess.

    Or more folksy, Cara Dillon and Lisa Handicap.

    Anybody saying Beth Orten needs to listen to more music…

    From the pile of CDs nearest the player (M40, natch 😉 ):

    Alabama Shakes (sorry can’t think of her name off hand)
    Julia Holter
    Susanne Sundfor
    Natalie Prass
    Meg Baird
    Sharon Van Etten

    From my head:

    Bjork (on massive Bjork binge at the moment More to life than this currently on repeat!)
    Gillian Welch
    PJ Harvey
    Chan Marshall (Cat Power)
    Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond)
    Roberta Flack (go listen to Reverend Lee!)
    Sister Sledge
    The ESG girls
    Roisin Murphy (check out The Truth – Handsome Boy Modelling School)
    Patti Smith
    Stina Nordenstam

    Can’t believe no one has mention Kylie yet. Shame on you.

    PJ Harvey – already mentioned
    God Help the Girl (Belle and Sebastien spin off)
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/God_Help_the_Girl

    And a shameless plug for my wife’s friend Erika; she makes a living doing backings for people like Skunk Anansie, and has guested for Senser on tour when Kerstin wasn’t available, but deserves more people to see her own work.

    Agree with loads already mentioned, but have to add Sinead O’Connor to the list. Hasn’t done anything truly great for ages and of questionable sanity, but on her day has/had a truly astonishing voice and intensity.

    Can’t believe Elizabeth Fraser hasn’t been mentioned yet.
