BitchTapes: The Family Way

Singer-songwriter Laura Gibson writes close-up, intimate songs that capture the fleeting images, feelings and memories that make up a life. She was therefore the perfect choice to create a playlist about the intimacy of family ties, and her thoughtful selections paint a multi-faceted picture of some of the most complex relationships we humans can have.

This playlist appears in the Family Values issue of Bitch magazine. The print edition includes extended descriptions and context from Laura on each song.
