We're decking the blog with ccCommunity playlists all week long! We're excited to bring lots of unique artists to the fore, from dusty corners of Soundcloud and homebrewed band pages, to your ears!
Pop, Country & Folk is the third of our 2016 Year In Review series (which will be appearing on this blog all month long). There will be separate playlists for other genre groups, so stay tuned for the next installment! The ccCommunity is a vibrant & diverse group of artists who are not affiliated with other formal FMA curators, who ask the FMA directly to join the party. We are honored and privileged to have these artists in our ranks, and can't wait for you to get to know them. And please bear in mind: these are just from one curator page, our ccCommunity, and these songs loosely fit in the genre designations we gave them, but not everything by all of these artists is the same -- you may find a wide variety of genres represented in one album. Without further ado, here is the playlist for your enjoyment!

"Through the Lens" is an album of multi-instrumental, dreamy, guitar-based songs I composed and recorded between September 2015 and March 2016. The style of music falls somewhere around post-rock, indie rock, and instrumental folk. You may have heard some of these songs in the past month on FMA or in different videos or podcasts because I was releasing each song as it was finished. Now the whole set is finished.
The instruments used on this set of songs include acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass guitar, vocals, PercPad, keyboard, tambourine, egg-shaker, kanjira, beatboxing, and some limited synth.
All of these songs are released under a CC-BY (Attribution) license, so feel free to do whatever you like with it as long as you attribute properly (attribution is listed on each track's page). Feel free to let me know if you used any songs in a video or other interesting production.

we are King & Crozier / King and Crozier, but we are acclaimed as the band : King & Crozier. This is Ryan King writing to you fellow indie viewers and listeners giving you the first written article by a new user and member of the FMA. I will enlighten you in this post a little about my life, and in future posts, I am sure Franklin Crozier will write to you as well.
I am Ryan King. I hail from a small town in the North titled Lewisburg, residing in the state of Pennsylvania. I have been writing poems and lyrics since the age of 14. I grew up learning how to sing at an early age, and how to apply actions to the words we sing and say. I've always dreamed of what it would be like to be a traveler. To see all the far cities and countries of people and places that I could only ever see via a computer screen or a magizine. Yet, coming to age, I have been attending Liberty Univeristy in Virginia. I have found a place where I can make friends from far off cities and countries. This is also where I found my wonderful and eccentric friend Franklin, who shares similar dreams and passions on travelling and conquering this world someday soon.
We have drawn close in friendship as well as a partnership in music, where we coined the name King & Crozier.
This is all for now of my life and all that I will share with you!
and from this point on, we hope to maintain our media following Via the FMA.
If you have'nt the chance to find us yet,

Have a blessed and merry life in where ever your life resides:)

It's been quite some time since we curated one of our Best Of Breitband Compilations. Finally, here it is: Vol. 6 is ready to go on your player, smartphone, computer or wherever you may listen to music! Best Of Breitband Vol. 6 is a compilation of songs that have been featured on our radio show and podcast "Breitband", a weekly show on new media and digital culture, airing every Saturday at 2pm on German Public Radio Deutschlandradio Kultur. Every week, we play six tracks of music that can only be found on the web, most of it comes with a Creative Commons licence, allowing everyone to share the songs. We hope you will enjoy the 24 songs that are somewhere between Indie, Pop, Electronic, Folk and Hip-Hop.

Zamalek is an island in Cairo in the middle of the Nile, but also a neighbourhood, something in between. This album by Nick Rivera is about the sky you can't see from this island and the things that swim in it. Zamalek is a warm cuddle from your trusted friend, a fist in the nape from your best enemy.
