Episode 15: Women's Names

This instalment of Threadwork has been ready for months (well, the music has anyway) but for various reasons the time was never quite right to release it. This was mainly because this was one of the first episodes we (Producer Bod and I) recorded and finished and when we tried to work out where it best sat it kept on being pushed back because there was a little too much crossover of the artists included on this episode compared to episodes that had just been released.

Anyway, that was then and this is now. And as you can see, the theme is Women’s Names. Or, more accurately, names that are usually given to women. Sometimes it’s hard to know what the right words to use are… thankfully it’s a bit easier to choose the records.



Tracklisting w/ links to purchase, if I can find them (these are directly related to the artists where possible but not always). Also, I take no responsibility for the links. Just trying to help…
