Dystimulation

Music and other modern musings

Amanda Blank!

Philly’s female misogynist, Amanda Blank, is nothing short of amazing. Her solo tracks, which have been produced by the likes of Spank Rock and Pace Rock are urban but playful, her collabs with queens of all things cool, M.I.A. and Santogold redefine the role of women in the hipster-hop and her style, well look at her. I’ve not yet seen her live but hope to grab the chance when she hits either the MTL or TO stage with Santogold in early June. Blank’s debut album I Love Youdrops July 14th and is produced by the sensational Diplo, Switch and XXXChange!

  1. I didn’t know crap about her until the Diplo remix of I’m A Lady. I saw her last night, and she put on a great show.

    Why do you say she’s a misogynist? I haven’t read or seen anything to make me think that.

  2. I suppose if you take the term litterally, it doesn’t really make sence. But you have to admit, the girl doesn’t really speak to fondly of men. I recognize its an intentional subversion of gender roles.

    I am go to see her and Santogold this Wednesday in MTL!
