Battle of the Bands – Record Store Ep. 10
Girl bands versus boy bands. What do we love about each?
Girl bands are usually stylish, uber talented and have plenty of attitude. When they come together they’re forces to be reckoned with.
Boy bands on the other hand are unapologetically inauthentic, sexy, and fabulous in a way that’s both cheesy yet strangely addictive. And as long as there are teenage fangirls around, these pop spectacles will live on well into the future.
For episode 10 of Record Store, I’ve selected an hour’s worth of records from some of the world’s best all-female and all-male groups; from Destiny’s Child to the Backstreet Boys, all on vinyl of course.
