Mix: Generation to Generation

Generation to Generation, mix, mixtape

Music has been known to bridge the gap between generations.

It may be the songs we grew up hearing our parents or grandparents play for us that we still listen to today and the memories that are packed into every chord. Or maybe it was the dusty vinyl or cassettes we found amongst our parents’ old stuff, a relic from their past lives that we never imagined. It might even be the music you found at a record store or thrift shop that you bought out of curiosity because of the awful cover art but came to love, and even found out was a favorite of the elders in your family.

Whatever the case, there is some music that transcends generations, collecting listeners from all age groups. Listen below to The Spec editors’ “Generation to Generation” picks…
