In our industrialized system of growing, harvesting, processing, packaging, transporting, and marketing what we eat, food is considered a commodity. For the handful of transnational corporations that control most of our food system, art, culture, community, and the like only become important when being used in the service of raking in profits.

Part of my mission is putting the culture back into agriculture, and my recipes have suggested music (and sometimes books and films) for you to enjoy while prepping, cooking, and eating with family and friends. I offer this playlist to help heat up your 4th of July cookout.

From the genre-busting, shape-shifting, and booty-shaking sounds of The Alabama Shakes to the “multi-dimensional, polyrhythmic gangster s**t” of Hiatus Kaiyote, these records will set you up for the rest of the summer.
