  • From the Roots - Rustic. Earthy. Unplugged. Timeless. Revel in this mix of straight up classics from rock's most iconic artists and their acoustic guitars. Songs included are from artists like Fleetwood Mac, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Bon Iver, Nirvana, Bruce Springsteen, and The Who.
  • Recycle: Covers - Anything goes when these legendary tunes are given a brand-new touch. Songs include well-known covers from a number of artists like The White Stripes, David Bowie, Adele, Johnny Cash, Yo La Tengo, Saint Etienne, and Smashing Pumpkins.
  • Amor a La Naturaleza - What better way to pay homage to the natural world than with songs that celebrate the wonder all around us?
