Boomkat Product Review:
Spellbinding, all-female selection from JD Twitch, realised as musical therapy during a bout of Covid and now making for a sterling 8th addition to his unmissable mixtape series
What was planned as a post-punk special became a very different affair when Twitch was isolating after picking up the bug during his first DJ set out of quarantine. Hard luck for him turned into a treat for us, ‘The Word Is Love (Women Of The World)’ features over 90 mins of peachy picks running the gamut of global styles penned over the past 75 years.
The vibes are exemplary, healing, enchanting; coursing from the blues to buddhist music, synth-pop to disco-not-disco, thru folk-rock and dream-pop, before ultimately returning to source in the blues, all guided by an expert hand.
