Episode 42: Our Favorite Music of 2016

In 2016, through numerous losses and unfortunate events, music sustained us. This week we share a small selection of the amazing music produced this year. This music spans genres and styles, from delicate to rough around the edges. And we’re incredibly excited to, in our first year as a program, to have talked to some of the artists making this music.

This episode includes tracks from Big Thief, Mal Devisa, Lucy Dacus, Mitski, Jamila Woods, and more.
