Americana

The Spotify revolution is currently sweeping the US, which is why we created this mixtape featuring all of our favourite American artists – and a few guilty pleasures thrown in for good measure: John Lee Hooker, Leadbelly, Howlin’ Wolf, Gil Scott-Heron, James Brown, Miles Davis, Ryan Adams, Jeff Buckley and far to many more to mention.
