[Listen & Download] Born at the Right Time: A Beat Dropping Playlist

[Sounds like: folk, rock, soul, and indie music]

Everyone seems to think they'd be better off living in the past. They say times were easier and filled with better music. And although we inevitably have our classics from preceding decades, I want to make my case for the present day in age. We may not have The Beatles anymore, but we do have something much more predominant and special today: singer/songwriters, folk, and indie tunes. There are more artists labeling themselves singer/songwriters now then there ever has been, and folk is on the brink of worldwide domination. 

It's for good reason, too. While endless surges of wannabe rappers flock to the recording studios and slowly kill music as we know it, singer/songwriters, folk artists, and indie do-it-yourselfers are keeping it in tact. We live in an age blasting real music that doesn't hesitate to steal you away for hours at a time. Respect will indefinitely be owed to the likes of Hendrix, Dylan, and Richards, but let us not forget we were born at the right time. Here are 25 songs to prove it... 



You can stream and subscribe to the playlist via Spotify below. They range from funk to folk and on to indie ballads. Regardless of their genre, however, they all serve as testaments to the great musical age we live in. We just have to learn to look in the right places, such as Beat Dropping (See what I did there?).
