Listen to the zodiac playlist

Last week I compiled a little mix of songs about the heavens in honor of our “Sign Language” feature. Read about mix and link to it here, or go directly to the music on 8tracks here.

New Music

Access others’ music libraries with 8tracks

8tracks, an internet radio site wherein users upload songs from their libraries making playlists that contain at least eight tracks, isn’t new. It’s just that I rediscovered it this weekend, created an account and made some mixes. Here’s my latest: Songs I listen to at the office. This website is particularly excellent when bored of your own music library, and in the mood to expose yourself to something new.
