Standing Rock (Playlist: Oct 31, 2016)

Standing Rock
Compiled Oct 31, 2016

New playlist inspired by recent shows, especially that of Trevor Hall, an amazing artist and unbelievably generous, kind (heart-of-gold) human being. In honor the Standing Rock protest in North Dakota, Trevor and his friend Aaron Edwards wrote a song called ‘Standing Rock‘ to encourage the Sioux people to continue to “stand up up like a mountain” and protect their basic right for WATER, “one of life’s most vital resources for our children’s children’s children.” Trevor was inspired by all of the warriors on the front lines laying down their lives for WATER, calling them “mountains of themselves, touching the sky with their peaks of strength, love, and selfless service.” But because these “mountains” need food, tents, blankets, and other materials in order to keep standing tall, Trevor is donating 100% of the funds raised by downloading his song to the front lines of Standing Rock. Everyone should go find their INNER WARRIOR and STAND UP HERE: https://trevorhallmusic.bandcamp.com/  *It will hammer on your heartstrings like it did Megan‘s and mine that night we first heard Trevor sing it at Sweetwater Music Hall*

“Listen close my friend
This is happening
Warrior Warrior

If you are a rock
Stand up like a mountain
Rise up from the earth
One Love One Message
I know that we are strong in spirit
And if you are the righteous, hear it
If you are a rock
Stand up like a mountain.”

Aside from ‘Standing Rock‘, this playlist features a other slay-worthy gems from Trevor’s tall treasure trove: The Promised Land “Sometimes I don’t feel at home
Like exodus in my own soul, And I wanna return”, Kabir, To Zion (Jen’s favorite!), Wish Man, Great Mirror, and Holy Country. It also features tracks from recent shows (The Head and the Heart, Blossoms, Night Riots, Mondo Cozmo, Ryley Walker, Kaleo, The Wind and the Wave, Bishop Briggs, Sylvan Esso, Local Natives, Bon Iver, Phantogram, Rayland Baxter, Blind Pilot, Nicolas Jaar) and upcoming shows (Cobi, The Boxer Rebellion, Kishi Bashi, Benjamin Francis Leftwich), as well as new releases from Sin Fang, Vok, Roosevelt, Saint Motel, and Solander. Check out the killer 50-song playlist on Spotify! STAND UP LIKE A MOUNTAIN. ❤
