agrarian riddims, vol. 4

It’s that time of year again. It’s time for the release of this summer’s agrarian riddims compilation, a farm tradition originally inspired by Grist’s mix-tape love letter to parks. For your listening pleasure, check out previous years’ mix-tapes: Volume one, Volume two and Side C. Special thanks to all the reggae musicians celebrating food and farming, and to Tom Payne and Kid Hops for inspiration.

  1. Like your first picture… I have done that numerous times in the garden when my back gets tight from leaning over… Feels so good! :)
