Episode LI: NYC [Guest Mix by Comrade Santi]

This week’s episode of Sonic Landscapes comes from Comrade Santi Slade. His selection of music is the culmination of a conversation we had regarding Hurricane Sandy. Santi says it best:

“Generally, I think the songs have a gritty optimism that is a good representation of the New York spirit. New Yorkers will always rise from the ashes of calamities on all scales; from just barely missing your morning subway to being hit with a huge storm or terrorist attack. This is reflected in the City’s diversity as well. The city understands that all individuals are struggling to make things better for themselves. So it’s hypocritical to hinder an entire group in that struggle by marginalizing them. New York accepts all obstacles as conquerable and all people as valuable.”
