We pick the artist - They pick the music.

UI Picks is curated by the Underground Institute, an international agency for adventurous music and platform for culture. UI Picks episodes are tailored for selected underground radio stations.

This episode is curated by the wonderful American artist Angie Reed.

She writes: “Wading in the pond of juxtaposition, that has sustained my work for some time, I spot pearls to play with.
What clamor will manifest should ‘X’ rub up against ‘Y’? Friction works like a charm in building character.

The songs I write seem to always turn out to be about Black Sheep, outcasts, rebels, who, thrust out of their supposed comfort zones, plunged into unfamiliar seas, wash ashore to new horizons equipped with nothing but their experience - likened to a maxed out golden card ready for one fancy final swipe…
Adventure is liberating and never without a cost - a shedding of identity, the known…

The choice of music for this show is a message in a bottle.
Older material was selected, spoken word, rock ’n roll, soul, even old punk among others, to delineate the same old narrative:
system control and domination versus the call for the human spirit to break free…
Release the underdog, the frog in the boiling water - the heat rises. It is done!

…Let’s drink to waters of infinite diversity birthing the gift of life - and not drown in dreary despotic uniformity that deems doom on the dream of the individual”.
