TuneDig Episode 016: Lauryn Hill’s “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill”

There’s little doubt at this point that “Miseducation” is a great album, but after really spending time with it, we came away with a deep belief that it’s one of the best ever, full stop. It’s a perfect record — albeit from an imperfect vessel — delivered at the perfect moment for maximum impact, and we only manage to scratch its surface here. We hope it hits you like it has us.

Episode 015: The Mars Volta’s “Frances the Mute”

Frances the Mute is a sonic séance, conjuring spirits buried beneath stories left behind by lost souls.

The double album finds the trio at—ahem—a crossroads, the contrast between their inspirations creating tension to mixed—but often magical—effect.

Episode 012: Mono’s “You Are There”

File “You Are There” under evidence for Huxley’s thesis that, “after silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.“ We gave our best effort trying to capture Mono’s magic, who don’t utter a single world but manage to say everything about life, death, and all that’s between.

Episode 011: Rage Against the Machine’s “Rage Against the Machine”

On the eve of an opportunity for Americans to lift their voices in demand of a more perfect union, we seek wisdom for this moment from the uncompromising, incendiary vision of our generation’s most effective revolutionaries.
