Music is a Form of Protest: Top 10 Political Songs + Spotify Playlist

Kassandra Ramirez

By KBR

In my opinion, the most beautiful quality of art is how it often encourages compassion in other human beings. Music is a particularly power medium, often changing opinions and making others feel intense emotion. For this reason, it is an excellent tool for change. In celebration of the United States’ Independence Day today, I have decided to share my new playlist, “Music is a Form of Protest.”

Back to Amerikkka - DZE like RZA - Cover Art

Back to Amerikkka - DZE like RZA - Cover Art

“Music is a Form of Protest” features 34 tracks in all genres, including artists like Nina Simone, System of a Down, Jalopy Bungus, and Childish Gambino. With a playtime of over 2 hours, this is the perfect playlist for a family get together or kickback.

More than anything, this playlist is a reminder of the great power artists have creating their perspective for others to view. Art evokes questions, and questions are needed for progress. Americans, Happy Independence Day. I hope you all use your talent to help society walk closer to love and equality.

1. Back to Amerikkka by DZE like RZA

“Back to Amerikkka” is one of my favorite tracks on this playlist. Everything from the instrumental to the cover art of this song is absolutely beautiful and flows naturally. This track is a unique and friendly reminder that we are living in “Amerikkka".” DZE like RZA’s vocals complement every element, and at just 2:20, it is easy to keep clicking replay.

2. Revolution by the Beatles

“Revolution” by The Beatles is pretty much the definition of a protest song. The upbeat sound and convincing lyrics influenced politics in the late 1960s and 1970s from the U.K. to the U.SA.. As John Lennon and Paul McCartney wrote “we all want to change the world,” and maybe this is the reason why some artists write music.

3. Hypnotize by System of a Down

“Hypnotize” by System of a Down is one of the most dynamic sounding songs on this playlist, making it very strong. Some of the lyrics read “Propaganda leaves us blinded,” and propaganda is something we are all exposed to thousands of time a day The song discusses how our government controls and discourages its people from standing up for our rights.

 

4. Mississippi Goddam by Nina Simone

“Mississippi Goddam” by Nina Simone is perhaps one of the most popular political songs known to the United States, as it was written during an era more oppressed than today. Nina Simone wrote this song in 1964 in response to the murder of Medger Evers, a civil rights leader in Mississippi at the time. The lyrics are very direct included lines like “Picket lines/ School boy cots/They try to say it's a communist plot/All I want is equality” and most importantly “Mississippi goddam, that’s it.”

 

5. Not My President by CNG

By reading the title alone, it is easy to see that “Not My President” by CNG is a political statement toward the president. The artist CNG wrote this track in 2017, just after Donald Trump became president in the United States of America. He wrote it because he was distraught by the new president and his racism towards certain minority groups.

 

6. Sunday Bloody Sunday by U2

Sunday Bloody Sunday” by U2 is a classic political song that has been heard by most of us at least a dozen times. Despite its strong message, the band used to introduce “Sunday Bloody Sunday” at concerts by saying “This is not a rebel song.” From what he has been asked about the song, Bono believes the song is about the people who felt pain during Sunday Blood Sunday, not the political cause.

 

7. Ballad of a Politician by Regina Spektor

“Ballad of a Politician” by Regina Spektor is very distinct compared to any other political song. Regina Spektor’s voice is silky smooth, making it much easier to swallow the pill she is giving us in this track. “A man inside a room is shaking hands with other men/This is how it happens/Our world under command” reminds us simply of how our world goes round. The majority of leaders in the world are men, yet women make up about half of the world population.

 

8. Crawl by Kings of Leon

Because of lead singer Caleb Followill’s edgy and impressive voice, it is very difficult not to love “Crawl” by Kings of Leon. This track tells America we are in a state of digression and we need to crawl before we can walk again. Hopefully this is true and our country will face peace soon.

 

9. Words I Never Said by Lupe Fiasco ft. Skylar Grey

“Words I Never Said” by Lupe Fiasco covers a few controversial questions being discussed in the United States. The track questions the cause of 9/11 as well as major budget cuts in education in America. With a strong and direct message, Lupe Fiasco’s collaboration with talented vocalist Skylar Grey was really the icing on the cake for this song.

 

10. Formation by Beyoncé

After listening to this track and watching the video it is easy to see why “Formation” has 176 million views on Youtube. In this track, Beyoncé embraces her African American heritage and flexes on all the money she has made in America despite our country’s racist past. As soon as I heard this song and watched this video, I applauded Beyoncé for her statement. There is nothing more beautiful than a powerful black woman in America.

 

Although discussion of political beliefs often cause commotion between us all, it is important to look at our country as something more than just the “U.S.A.” We are millions of living people. Luckily, we have music to connect us all and songs like these show us we all care. I hope you all enjoyed this playlist. Happy Fourth of July!

Toast To Our Differences - First Listen Album Review

Kiara Ramirez

Rudimental - Toast To Our Differences cover art

Rudimental - Toast To Our Differences cover art

The first time I heard Rudimental in 2014, I was so blown away I immediately bought their digital album while still in the arena parking lot. I was lucky enough to see them as the opening band for Ed Sheeran which led to a memorable impression. Rudimental has a unique sound and while seeing them perform live, their talent truly shines through.

“Toast To Our Differences” is a 16-track album with a runtime of an hour. Their desire to collaborate with other musicians means that every track has a featured artist. Listening to the album all at once reminded me of being home alone with loud music playing. It has it's own aura which can only be understood by listening to “Toast To Our Differences.”

The track “Let Me Live” gave me major beach vibes. I can imagine having this song on a road trip playlist, letting it guide me wherever I may go.

“Last Time” encourages everyone to “forget it all tonight and lay our differences down”.

“No Pain” by Rudimental ft. Maverick Sabre, Kojey Radical and Kabaka Pyramid

”No Pain” is the track that grabbed my attention the most. “Everybody choosin' desires over beauty. Evil is blooming and money's where it's rooted” really struck me as an honest observation.

“Toast To Our Differences” is not Rudimental's best album in my opinion, but it is definitely worth listening to as it is different from their previous albums. I recommend hearing with headphones because they really do have subtle nuances in their tracks that make all the difference for the musically inclined.

Hidden Gem: Interview with AZ Hip Hop Artist Miles Green

Kassandra Ramirez

By KBR

The most beautiful thing about being in 2019 is the ability for artists to create high quality content from pretty much anywhere. Throughout history, creating content has always been exclusive to the privileged and high class because of the necessary funds needed, but now we see people from all areas and all incomes creating beautiful art because the accessibility to creating has grown tenfold.

While many have the ability to create, it is always refreshing to encounter artists who create memorable content unique from what they observe from the people around them. Miles Green, born Miles Serb, was born in Detroit, now residing in Tempe Az. He is undoubtedly a hidden gem in the local Arizona music scene. Upon immediately listening to his tracks, I immediately felt the need to share the resonating sound of Miles Green with music fanatics.

This interview has been edited for clarity

When did you first decide you would like to pursue music professionally?

I first began producing music in early 2014, but the summer of 2017 exploded my experience with beat making. During this time I crafted over 100 songs, and saw progress. During this summer, I saw some of my favorite artists live. This humanized the idols I looked up to. From that point i've been pursuing music professionally working on elements of my craft beyond my production in hopes to create a unique but relevant sound. I began the transition into a full fledged artist in late 2017 to early 2018 by fully producing, writing, and conceptualizing my music.

“Elevators” by Miles Green ft. Breana Marin

How would you describe your sound?

I would say my sound is more modern hip-hop based upon my production techniques. Though I believe I thrive with more grime and upbeat based songs. I would say I really discovered my sound in the summer of 2017 when working on songs of all different moods. That time allowed me to reflect on my strengths and weaknesses. I feel as though it has become easier to identify those aspects of my creativity and become familiar with those areas. I am always striving to perfect my sound.

Can you tell us more about “Kick It,” your newest track?

By creating “Kick It,” I experimented with different production techniques and arrangements that I have heard before that make a song more appealing. The song had three different concepts and two different revisions before landing on the final form you can hear on all platforms. The song has more structure and focus on aligning all aspects of the song in comparison to my past releases. I also made certain sounds for the song by hand that I felt at the time would be a risk, but most people ended up enjoying and commenting on how they were some of their favorite sounds in the whole song. The production also goes into the vocal layout as I rewrote the song three times until I made my final version which does effect the beat in some areas.

“Kick It” by Miles Green

What is your favorite part of being a musician? Why do you gravitate toward music as a medium?

 My favorite part of being a musician is that I get to create and experiment with something that honestly draws me in naturally. Music, unlike many past interests in my life, makes me strive to be better. I've found myself sitting at my desk working for hours on music with no problem. I once worked on a song from 8AM to 9PM with only eating one banana and having one bathroom break simply because I felt like working on my craft. Not many other interests have given me that same drive. It also serves as a means of expression to get emotions from my mind on something that can be felt and heard at any given moment making it therapeutic for me.

Who/What are some of your biggest inspiration when creating?

My biggest inspirations when producing music would be Tyler The Creator and Pharrel Williams. Both artists make music freely with no worry of judgment or lack of success. They go in their studios with confidence, a work ethic, and create great original music.

My greatest inspirations when writing music would be Kendrick Lamar and MF DOOM. Both of them have lyricism that is unrivaled. MF DOOM can have such strong wordplay that after reading his lyrics I want to pass out from pure amazement. Kendrick Lamar's control of his voice, flow, lyricism, and delivery is, in my opinion, leading the modern hip-hop scene as it is unique and obviously fine-crafted. All the mentioned individuals have worked on their craft and become widely successful in all areas of hip-hop, and they really inspire me.

“Stripes” by Miles Green - Cover Art

“Stripes” by Miles Green - Cover Art

Do you use the same method to create your songs, or does it vary depending on the song?

It varies in songs. I always begin with an idea or mood I want for a song then begin structuring my melodies and etc. Though sometimes I will start with different aspects such as drums, a sample, or concept. Though I know the moment I want to make a beat into a full fledged song. I don't release everything I make, but I know what I want to release.

Out of all your songs, is there a track that speaks out to you most? If so, which one and why? Of the songs I have released, I would say “Stripes” speaks to me most at the moment. Stripes focuses on embracing what makes you different, and delves into understanding the importance of being different. The beat in “Stripes” is one of my favorite as it has a grimy bass that grinds throughout the track accompanied with drums that knock the whole track.

“Stripes” by Miles Green

What are common messages that reoccur in your music?

 Common themes that appear in my music are struggles with poverty, urban areas such as cities or neighborhoods, African American culture/history, and rebellion against a systematic injustice.

“Stripes” deals with being different against social norms. “Kick It” deals with the urge to be free and what that costs at some points. “F.U.T.W.” deals with personal moments in my life that I felt less than confident, and how I persevere as a dominant force. “Elevators” deals with being bigger than the issues in your every day life, as we all can elevate above them. My songs all follow certain core themes, but are their own independent rabbit holes of ideas and concepts.

How are you unique from other artists?

Everything I make comes from my own mind,experiences, and understanding of the world around me. Many people in the world may agree, disagree, or think differently than I, but I am the only Miles Green in the world that is like me. I put my experiences and understanding on paper to show that yes these topics and issues may affect me, but they affect many individuals everyday. I am also unique from other artists as I have spent years crafting my sound so I know how exactly I want my whole song planned out before I enter into a studio or recording space. I am also not afraid to try new concepts that break away from mainstream appeal and experiment with my sound both sonically and lyrically.

Do you have any advice to give aspiring artists?

 To anyone that appreciates the art of hip-hop/music producing/ and being an artist, I say that the road is long and treacherous. There have been many days where I wanted to quit and felt less than myself, but I kept pushing through. Tenacity and belief are strong attributes that can take you anywhere in life. My piece of advice for an aspiring artist is to never give up and know that every moment in the beginning is another moment to be reflected on in the future. Also strive to be as genuine and translucent as possible. To be an artist in any art form, a person has to be able to identify many crucial things about themselves sometimes presenting the biggest hurdle for many beginners.

You're a Man Now, Boy - First Listen Album Review

Kassandra Ramirez

By Kiara Ramirez

“I'm not growing up, I'm aging. My mind's incarcerated. And though this body's taller, sometimes I feel smaller.” “You're A Man Now, Boy” is the name of Raleigh Ritchie's debut album released in February of 2016.

Raleigh Richie - “You’re a Man Now, Boy” - Album Cover Art

Raleigh Richie - “You’re a Man Now, Boy” - Album Cover Art

“Raleigh Ritchie,” formerly known as Jacob Anderson, can be recognized as Grey Worm, the beloved character from Game of Thrones. However, many do not know of his talent for creating eclectic music. With a total play time of 72 minutes and 18 tracks, “You’re a Man Now, Boy” embodies what it feels like to transition from child to adult in a bumpin' medley of electronica, hip-hop, and R&B. Many of these tracks feel confessional, rolled up in cathartic honesty.

Raleigh Ritchie - Keep it Simple (Official Audio)

The track, “Keep It Simple,” tackles the issue of overthinking new situations, daydreaming about the possibilities, then applying old habits leading to influence in the present moment. “Stronger Than Ever” deals with imposter syndrome and how it can seep into all levels of the human psyche, affecting more than one aspect of your life.

Raleigh Ritchie - Stronger Than Ever (Official Music Video)

Everyone should give a listen to this album as it confronts feelings everyone has had at one point or another in their lives. This was a great album to listen to as it had a message, as well as musical individuality. With no release date yet, the next album by Raleigh Ritchie should definitely be on everyone's radar.



J. Cole's K.O.D. - First Listen Album Review

Kassandra Ramirez


By Kiara Ramirez

“This album is in no way intended to glorify addiction.” Beneath this text is a sobering image: teens consuming various drugs ignorant to what it may possibly lead to. While most popular music will only portray the carefree, fun side to drug use, J.Cole's “K.O.D.” forces you to see how this mentality has damaged many aspects of today's society. While drug use itself is one issue, this problem seeps into other areas of society as well. Many subjects are discussed throughout the album including social media, taxes, guns, education, and the state of democracy.

K.O.D. By J. Cole - Cover Art Design By  Sixmau

K.O.D. By J. Cole - Cover Art Design By Sixmau


My most recommended song on the album would have to be “Brackets.” This song creates a vivid picture both with it's title and the vast amount of imagery presented within this lyrical poem. The track, “Brackets,” discusses the power our government system holds when collecting and distributing the country's tax money. Often times, people of color pay into the system but fail to see the equal benefits provided to White America and the upper class. The story told within is one that deeply resonated with me.


With 12 solid tracks and a total playtime of 43 minutes, K.O.D. should definitely be listened to. At the end of listening, it felt somehow therapeutic that someone was able to tackle many tough subjects honestly. A recurring phrase that appears throughout the album is one that can be adopted for everyday life. That phrase is: Choose wisely.

CEG Releases Official Music Video for her new single "Yellow Line"

Kassandra Ramirez

By KBR

With today’s power to create and connect on various platforms, it is a beautiful time for consuming art and media. Now is the time when strong female artists are empowering others by sharing their new visions and discoveries, more than ever before.

CEG (pronounced like “sage”) is a rising artist from Portland, Oregon, capturing the eyes and ears of her city. CEG, which stands for “Claire Elizabeth Grace,” just released her official music video for her single, “Yellow Line” and it is clear that she is gaining momentum in the music scene.

CEG’s new song “Yellow Line” features R&B, Soul, and Melodic sounds with themes of peace and inner stability, while the aesthetic of the single’s music video is filled with trippy elements and lots of yellow. CEG’s ability to mix genres and send a message in her music makes us all excited to hear more. Keep an ear out for CEG, as she will be touring in your city very soon.

This interview has been edited for clarity.

When did you start creating music?

I’ve been singing since I could talk. My mom was a music and theater major in college so I have always been exposed to music and performing. I also performed in various musicals in high school I have always been obsessed with singing harmonies, but it wasn't until about two years ago until I started writing my own music.

What inspired you to be a professional musician?

There is nothing better I can be doing than pursuing my passion. To me, there is no other high like the high you get from creating music.

Tell us about your upcoming EP “Rose Woman”. Why the title?

I would describe the sound of Rose Woman” as “Neo-Millenial-Jazz.” A mixture of R&B, Jazz, and Spoken Word. I chose the title because I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon, and Portland is known as “Rose City.” I am carrying the city on my back. I am “Rose Woman.”

Still from CEG’s new music video for her single “Yellow Line”

Still from CEG’s new music video for her single “Yellow Line”

What is your dream collaboration?

My dream collaboration would definitely be with Kehlani. It is kind of crazy because Kehlani’ and DJ Noodles’s booking manager actually invited me to open for P-LO when he saw me open for DJ noodles. It’s like she’s just one step away from me.

Tell us about your new single “Yellow Line.”

“Yellow Line” was made to listen to when you smoke and chill. The song is about slowing down.

Anything that stands out to you in your life is meant to be a message. To me, yellow means caution but also happiness.

How was the process of creating the music video for “Yellow Line”?

The process of creating the music video for “Yellow Line” was very organic. I played a big role in writing with the script, but the video evolved as it was produced.

Raynee Roberts of Lost Portral put the video together, and she is fucking fantabulous. We spent a lot of time together through the process. She even designed some of the outfits for the video, including my yellow top. She is very talented.

When is the release of your new EP, “Rose Woman”?

The release of “Rose Woman” is on my 25th birthday, June 28th. I am having a private release party to celebrate. It’s actually at the location where we filmed the music video for “Yellow Line.”

We have amazing sponsors for the event. I’m working on a collaboration re:stash. They printed Fronto Shorty logos on mason jars for us and they will be featured at the event. Compound, a unique sneaker and streetwear company, is also a sponsor. Mental Minorities, Swiggle Mandela, and La Familia are also going to be performing.

What can your fans expect from you in 2019?

On 4/20, I will be releasing my new song, “Fronto Shorty.” “Fronto Shorty” is a 4/20 appreciation song and also the name of my brand. You can also expect to hear collaborations with Libretto, Zenith, and Mental Minorities. This year, I will be traveling constantly because I am trying to perform as much as possible.

Jalopy Bungus Drops New Album, "Samson"

Kassandra Ramirez

by KBR

It is often said that everyone can be an artist. While I agree that anyone can make art, I believe being an artist is a much more distinct quality. While art is a form of expression, what makes art special is that it can also be perceived, different for every viewer. Constantly looking for artists to feature on our blog, I always search for artists whose voices speak. When discovering Jalopy Bungus, I immediately saw this quality.

Jalopy Bungus - Photo by  KBR

Jalopy Bungus - Photo by KBR

What separates Jalopy Bungus from other artists in the Arizona hip hop scenes is his undeniable talent for conveying his emotions toward his audience. Reoccurring themes in Jalopy Bungus’s new album “Samson” include living in the projects, the struggle of being black in America, and even suicide, all touchy subjects.

After hearing the new album “Samson,” which dropped on February 22nd, I was lucky enough to land an interview with Jalopy Bungus himself. I met him for a 90-minute interview and photoshoot at his apartment complex, and captured some magic outside right around the block. During the interview, Bungus gave me some insight into the meaning of his tracks and creative process behind it all. After my experience, I am convinced the world will hear all about Jalopy Bungus.

This interview has been edited for clarity

What makes you unique form other artists in the Arizona music scene?

What separates me from everybody out here is I’m not afraid to talk about the risky stuff. I live on my own accord.

Tell us about your creative process.

Recently, I don’t really write anything unless I have something to say. If it’s not really true to my heart, I can’t put it down. However long I am supposed to wait until that pops up is how long I am going to wait. However, there is a thin line between discipline and inspiration, a very thin line. You don’t want to wait to be inspired.

There is too much of “this” to not be inspired.

How was the experience collaborating with singer Dali?

Dali is pretty much my soulmate. I have known her since 2015 this was the first track with just me and her on it. We have been wanting to collab for so long. She truly is a once-in-a-lifetime talent.

The song “Procrastinating Suicide” was particularly difficult to get done. Dali was in Oregon at the time, and when I sent her the song, she recorded the stems and when she sent them back they were all choppy and messed up. It was super last minute, so it was a mess. The last day of the project being finished, I had to mix about 90 vocals stems the day before I turned the project in to Distrokid so it could be uploaded to all platforms.

Who is “Vocal Cords of a Broken Woman” written about? Is there going to be a Part 2?

I can’t say yet, but it is about someone I know. The story is still being written. Part 1 is just the very beginning of the story.

What is “Cut the Rope” about?

“Cut the Rope” is about having withdrawals from whatever you are addicted to and how it effects you. You know you know better, but somehow you can’t stop. Well, you can, but you don’t because are addicted to it.

I was addicted to nearly committing suicide at one point. I never did it, but I thought about it. I would think about all types of ways to do it.

Have you ever been worried about some of your songs influencing someone negatively? Particularly your track “Procrastinating Suicide”?

I was definitely scared to put “Procrastinating Suicide” on the projects because I could see where someone might kill themselves because of the song. In a way, that is part of the reason why I put it out. I always want to promote individuality. The message of the song is don’t kill yourself because someone doesn’t want you to. Don’t kill yourself because you don’t want to kill yourself.

Tell us more about your track “Latarian Milton.”

Latarian Milton is that little boy who stole his mom’s car because he “just wanted to do hood rat shit with his friends.” Imagine being like 7 and being turned into a superstar because of it. You’re doing Tosh.o, you’re on Boondocks. The world rewarded him for for his actions. He went on to carjack an uber when he was 17, and they sent him to prison. They used him until he couldn’t bring ratings anymore.

The song is about being black and all the things that come with it. “Mama told me I’m a king/school told me I’m a slave.” That’s real.

What can we expect from Jalopy Bungus in the near future?

I will definitely have another show for “Samson” this spring. Continue to look out for my content, because plans are in motion to transform “Samson” into a visual project, with each song having its own video.

Listen to “Samson” on Soundcloud, Spotify, and all major platforms.

Speak into the Mic: Tullis

Kassandra Ramirez

With today’s media being oversaturated with mediocre and unthoughtful content, it is always refreshing to discover a rising artist with the determination to create something with purpose. After our EIC, Jacob Blieu, introduced me to Tullis’ work, I was quickly convinced that he’s a vivid example of a passionate artist.

Starting his musical journey at the young age of thirteen, later experimenting in his band, “Bears and Airplanes”, and then continuing his career as a solo artist, it is safe to say that Tullis (who goes by his last name) will be an Arizona artist to remember. By…
