A selection of female-fronted heavy rock, metal and noise handpicked by American songwriter Chelsea Wolfe. Chelsea’s own music blends elements of gothic rock, doom metal, and folk music into haunting and atmospheric songs. Featuring radical and wondrous vocals from Karina Utomo and her group High Tension, Lingua Ignota brings out the desperation in the lyrics to Dolly Parton’s Jolene with a slowed down version accompanied by crunchy guitar arpeggios and there’s heavy riffs and catchy melodies from Dallas’ True Widow.

March 11th at midnight UK time, 1AM CET on BBC Radio 6.
