More about the CASH Music Family and the artist curators who help make it possible.

Central to the CASH Music Family is a thing we call “the feed.” (We’re still working on a better name for it, but we’re more focused on the experience than the name. We’ll get there.) The feed is where all Family members get recommendations, reviews, and downloads straight from some of their favorite artists. Imagine a Twitter feed filled with nothing but rad music with sample downloads and purchase/stream links. All family members get access to the feed for as low as $5/month.

Today we announced the initial lineup of artist curators and we couldn’t be more excited. Craig Finn led off by talking about the books, records, and TV he’s been spending time with while on tour with Japandroids. Each of the people below is willing to share a similar look into the art that inspires them. We’re so grateful to each of them because this is how music recommendations should work — people talking about things they love and sharing that love with others.

Maybe you’ll find someone whose own work you love on the list below and they’ll introduce you to something you’ll fall in love with next.

My parents and I used to watch Yellow Submarine on UHF every time it was on. You should watch it with your friends. You can buy it here.
