The A-List of Bay Area Counterculture
In heavy rotation at the Z List is The Believer Magazine 2010 Music Issue CD (published in the Bay Area), which features Oakland based Fear & Fancy‘s debut single “Off The Grid.” This genre-defying act (currently still under the radar) is featured on the compilation alongside Janelle Monáe, M.I.A, of Montreal, BLK JKS, Saul Williams, Rob Roy, Hollyweerd, amongst other notable talent.
The album was compiled by Chuck Lightning, a member of Atlanta based band Deep Cotton and Janelle Monáe‘s Wondaland Arts Society. Considering Mr. Lightning’s musical contributions, it’s to no surprise that he’s compiled some sweet tracks for us to groove too, along with insightful cultural commentary to reflect on.
