I’ve put together a soundtrack for my travels this year. You can see the full playlist and the picture I chose as “cover art” at Art of the Mix.
New Artists I discovered this year:
- Michael Franti and Spearhead - groovy, dance-able hip-hop beats combined with conscious lyrics
- Human and the Other Humans - funky/folky sound with lyrics about community life and fighting the man. A fellow communard, I got the chance to see him play live at Earthaven Ecovillage when he was on tour.
- Alabama-3 (A3) - techno + gospel + country + blues = an amazing combination of musical talents
