Kids: An April Mixtape

goat 01

I was recently asked if I had any interest or faith in artists younger than me. I replied, “I’m just realizing that the people I really cared about as a kid are getting older. It’s strange to realize that.”

Fortunately they aren’t the only people I pay attention to. Here is a collection of songs by artists who are considered more “up and coming” rather than established. There are originals, remixes and reinterpretations here, but I take an interest not only due to their work. Most of these artists are brash, experimental and outspoken about their politics and worldviews.
