Michael Sterns – Planetary Unfolding via Matthewdavid Michael Stearns’ Planetary Unfolding is a special album for me. If I had to choose a song that was the most significant then it’d have to be the first song from the album “In The Beginning…”, but really it was the full album experience that would lead […]
Sankomota – House on Fire via Jeremiah Lemohang Mosese Sankomota is an afrojazz pop band from Lesotho which was very popular. Very much like the Beatles for us. Sankomota’s House on Fire was literally a part, or even a fabric of the subculture from when I was growing up. I grew up in Hlotse, […]
Alva Noto’s Xerrox Meta Phaser via Jessica Ekomane It was at the time when having a desktop computer at home was still quite a new thing. When I discovered the album “Xerrox Vol. 2” I was quite mesmerized by those sounds I was hearing for the first time. I was playing this track “Xerrox […]
Rid of Me by PJ Harvey via Lynette Cerezo Whenever I hear the song Rid of Me my PJ Harvey life gets rewind to being in my 20’s in my best friends car in Savannah, Georgia during summer road trips trying to beat the heat. We would sing at the top of our lungs […]

My favorite 90’s hip-hop acts started to wane into their mediocre periods and […]
The Whole World by Outkast via Eiliyas And the whoooooole worrrlldd!!! Loves it when you don’t get dowwwwwn!!!! This was the first track I ever heard Killer Mike on. It was some days after September 11th and there was a plethora of REM songs on heavy rotation on channels like MTV and I believe VH1. […]
Clarity by Zed via Ryan Parks Zed’s Clarity, whenever I hear that song I think about being in my friend Lily’s car with Negashi and Mickey. We were driving to Ragarama on the nicest, spring day. It was just a real joy being out that day, and that Euro soccer chant chorus really […]
Georgia Anne Muldrow’s Runaway via Ingrid Sibley “Oh my, how fresh we would be if we took our dreams seriously.” Every lyric of this song feels like what life is about now. Georgia Anne Muldrow’s song “Runaway” serves the purpose that art is, in its highest form — a path for the future. It […]
What’s Going On? by Marvin Gaye via Autry Fulbright I was walking around Oslo Norway in the middle of the afternoon in early spring about 7 years ago.
