I love listening to Spotify playlists like Local Noise to hear bands I love and discover new ones. I'm not sure who curates this playlist but there's a serious lack of chicks or any kind of diversity on this list though! There's so many great female driven bands making great music in this genre. I suggest Spotify make some room for them on this and other playlists. Either that or rename it "Local Noise Made By 20-Something White Dudes". What's up Spotify it's 2016!?
@Sophied13 I absolutely agree, a lot of curators have strong unconscious gender bias - I also believe that more female artists outside pop don't get the attention they deserve than male artists. I try my best to create balance in my playlists (and if not, create an entire playlist of female artists I admire) - like this one I made recently:
I agree too. I like to listen to artists of all walks of life. I would love to listen to more females and diverse artists. Also, as a new singer/songwriter--it is hard for new artists to gain traction.Hopefully, changes will be for the better!
