Living In The Promiseland

On 15, Oct 2017 | No Comments | In music | By Hunt & Gather

Music’s always been there to help us get through tough times, whether we’re dealing with heartbreak, loss, desperation, or whatever discombobulating social political cluster-fuck of the moment we find ourselves in. So in that spirit, here’s a link to a lil’ collection to help us get through. These songs yearn for freedom, rail against injustice, lend light in darkness, motivate movements, or simply help us get all our feelings out with their unabashed expressions of sadness, frustration, rage, and strength. Sorry, though, no Eminem freestyles here.

stay strong,

[[Tunes by Buffy Sainte-Marie, Syl Johnson, Pete Seeger, Shamir, Willie Nelson, Faith No More, Nina Simone, Angela Simpson, Handsome Furs, and then some. Unfortunately most aren’t on spotify so enjoy them in good old fashioned mp3 form]]

Best of 2016

On 15, Dec 2016 | No Comments | In music | By Hunt & Gather

This year has been, by all accounts, shite. It’s a testament to the indomitable human spirit that we’re still able to appreciate anything as much as we do these songs… and we appreciate them a lot! BIG thanks goes to all the music-makers who continue creating great art that falls under the mainstream radar, who push the boundaries, who keep it weird.

Please take a listen and enjoy, expand your mind, spread your love. Old-fashioned mp3 collectors can hear here. Spotify folks will miss out on a few, but have at them here, my dear.
