To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
So here it is, the long awaited, highly coveted, much anticipated Oh, Pioneer! playlist. It’s called Kindle the Fire in Your Chest (Kindle the Fire for short) and it’s an hour and 37 minutes packed full of amazing jams by tons of great artists, as well as the classic reading of “Pioneers! O, Pioneers!” by Will Geer.
This playlist is has been personally tested by yours truly and is proven to be a great soundtrack for roadtrips into the wilderness, chopping down trees in your back yard, reading books by Hemingway and Thoreau, and standard-issue shenanigans and cockamamie.
If you enjoy it, or have any comments or suggestions, come at me, bro.
