FemMusic recently talked to Alex Lilly, whose LP 2% Milk is still going strong at the NACC Radio 200. The resultant wide-ranging interview touches on the impact of the opera Carmen on her musical development; her friendship with the bird and the bee’s Inara George, whose Release Me Records put out the album; and the “uphill battle” that women too often have to face as musicians. “You start at a deficit,” she explains, “and have to work your way up to the status of an intelligent, competent human being” in the eyes of many bros in the industry. Fortunately, she hasn’t allowed that to discourage her, and 2% Milk is a testament to that! Read the full interview here.
2% Milk, as well as a Gothic Tropic-remixed version of the title track, is on our download page. Get it spinning now.
