girlhood

Every Saturday from 8:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

an hour every week of female-fronted indie that encapsulates the weird medley of melancholy and joy associated with growing up

a.k.a. music you can put in your "soundtrack for if my life was an indie coming-of-age movie" spotify playlist to expand it past the same five dayglow songs

songs for when you're trying to keep a ~positive mental attitude~ even when it seems like the world doesn't want you to have one.
