Playlist: Indie Rock Covers by Female Vocalists

Indie rock plus female vocalists equals one killer playlist. 

Thanks to our friends at Indie Shuffle for this exclusive playlist, featuring some of our favorite female voices like Lykke Li and Sunday Girl.

From Indie Shuffle:

What’s Indie Shuffle? It’s a music discovery blog run by site founder Jason Grishkoff and editor-in-chief Hannah Simon. What sets the site apart from the countless other music blogs out there is our “smart” streaming player — it generates a curated playlist of similar tracks and artists every time you hit “play” on Indie Shuffle. With 30+ contributors, we try to post everything from obscure hip-hop to folk, frequently learning towards electronic-infused indie rock. But we also have a certain soft spot for cover tracks — especially those with gorgeous female vocals — so today, we’re excited to share with you our 15 favorite songs covered by female artists!
