Just as she takes up space in the male-dominated Baltimore–Washington metropolitan area punk scene, Sneaks, aka Eva Moolchan, takes up space among the patriarchy. “Highway Hypnosis” plays on hip-hop, post-punk and invented words to fill a gap between the feminist underground and genre-specific singles charts. Through it, Moolchan joins the resistance forged by queer black feminists who create, explore, empower, conquer and play bass.
Flashes of Robyn, Britney Spears, Jock Jams, Nirvana, recess hour on the blacktop, M.I.A., Lil Mama, a hacky sack circle, Aaliyah and your first Warped Tour experience somehow all make sense inside the mind attached to ears experiencing “Highway Hypnosis.”
This week’s download comes from Eva Moolchan, better known as Sneaks, and her latest album, “Highway Hypnosis.” You have seven days to download her song, “The Way It Goes.”
