Ethnomusicologist Frances Densmore recording Blackfoot chief Mountain Chief for the Bureau of American Ethnology (1916)


When I’m not laying in my bed eating chips and watching “Entourage”, I’m writing for this music blog called EARMILK. I love music so when the opportunity arose for me to write for Earmilk, I was ecstatic! I write mostly about hip hop, some jazz, some indie and some stuff in between. I started contributing to EM back in June and it’s been an all around wonderful experience. I love Earmilk’s approach to sharing new music and I’ve learned about so much great music through the contributors I work with.

Over the past week, I was involved with the writing and selecting the Earmilk Top 20 Hip-Hop/Rap Albums of 2011 [#10-1] and Earmilk Top 20 Hip-Hop/Rap Albums of 2011 [#20-11] list. It was a grueling process as many stellar mixtapes and albums were released this year (as well as a good amount of trash), but I think we came up with a strong list. If you’re looking for new hip hop, I earnestly suggest our Top 20 list. And if hip hop isn’t your thing, look into the electronica and indie lists.

Happy reading and listening!
