Liz B's Top FMA Picks for 2014

It's been another stellar year for music here at the FMA, and as usual, I found it mighty difficult to narrow down my favorite songs into a digestible list. Every week, I dive in to the FMA's new additions and pull my favorite selections to play on my radio show on WFMU and podcast. Though it's impossible for any human to listen to every single new song added to this online treasure trove, I certainly do my best to take in a hearty sampling.

In keeping with tradition, I present two lists of my top picks for the year: a short list of 15 tracks for those who want a taste, followed by a big-ass mega-mix of 99 songs if you're hungry for more.

Radio Free Culture Podcast Returns

WFMU and the Free Music Archive are proud to present a new season of Radio Free Culture, a weekly podcast exploring issues at the intersection of digital culture and the arts. Our season opener is a two-part interview with FMA pal Elliot Harmon, Communications Manager at Creative Commons. We couldn't have imagined a better way to bring back Radio Free Culture than to take a look at the current state of affairs at our favorite alternative licensing operation.

Check out the first episode here, or subscribe to the podcast here (via iTunes).
