December - 2016
Barely a week left in the year of our lawd 2016. Read any good end of year best-of lists? Hahaha jk, I do not care!
We've all given 2016 a pretty hard time, perhaps deservedly so, but if there's one thing I'd like to give thanks for from this year, it's music. I was lucky enough to see an incredible list of performers live and in the flesh including Charles Bradley, Dan Auerbach, Gary Clark Jr., Beyoncé, and... Method Man & Redman? I could go on but then it might look like one of those best-of lists I just insulted. The point is there's a lot of great music out there to go see and support. I hope this monthly email has helped you find at least one new artist you might try to see in 2017.
This month's playlist is a bit heavy on the R&B side and I don't know if that suits the time of year or not but I hope you enjoy it anyway. Check out the animated music video from Chelou, the MJ vibes from Snoh Aalegra, and more Badbadnotgood collab sweetness with Daniel Casear.
Enjoy 43 minutes of good music.
