Get into the Off-kilter Indie Rock of DONNIE DOOLITTLE “When A Woman”

When Donnie Doolittle asks us, “What’s wrong when a woman/Wants to take a man?” I start digging into the hypocrisy of how our society simultaneously slut-shames women while expecting women to be ready to sexually satisfy men, even the ones who hate them. I keep listening to his track “When A Woman” off his upcoming album DREAMY D because it reminds me how rare it is to hear a cis-gendered man say he understands and appreciates that women have a sexual appetite, too. And it’s not tied to her status as “good” or “bad.” She’s just a human that wants a fuck.

Plus his music is catchy AF and I can’t help singing along. I guess you can call this indie rock—it’s a bit folky, and a bit arty, and has a throwback 60s vibe to it with the organ oom-bop and weird and wavy synths. Donnie Doolittle captures a balance of lighthearted retro pop with a dark and ominous undercurrent of cacophonous melody. I’d love to see him perform live, and if you’re in the Charlotte, NC, area on November 27th then fuck celebrating a colonizer holiday and instead go see Donnie Doolittle for free at Snug Harbor with Funeral Chic and Dipstick.

So take a minute with me to watch Donnie Doolittle’s video for “When A Woman,” and to all of those reading this, I hope you have mind-blowing consensual sex with someone in the very near future.

Take me when you’re lonely

Take me when you’re bored

I know I’m not the only

I know that there are more

What I mean

To say

Is we’ve all got to lay

And that’s okay
