It’s only natural for a journal about historical American culture to be deeply tied to music, and the the museum of americana is certainly proving to be no exception. No doubt because music is such an enormous part of our country’s cultural DNA, much of the prose, poetry, and art we’ve published has direct or indirect musical links. So, for context, for ambiance, and most of all for your sheer listening pleasure, our editors have put together a short playlist to pair with our first issue. Enjoy!
