ANTI- is a really diverse, badass record label. Just check out the artists. Michael Franti (of Spearhead), Islands, Tom Waits….on the same label? Some people might be turned off by the diversity, but I love the idea of repping good music regardless of genre. Slowly but surely I think the polars are drifting a little closer. I mean shit, Jim Jones going in over MGMT’s “Electric Feel”? Every rapper out wanting a piece of “Paper Planes”? Tom Waits and Kool Keith??? Hell yeah. Here are some highlights from the Fall 2008 sampler.

Jolie Holland – Mexico City
Islands – Pieces of You
Michael Franti – Say Hey ( I Love You)
Man Man – Rabbit Habbits
N.A.S.A. ft. Tom Waits & Kool Keith – Spacious Thoughts
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!
Cadence Weapon – Real Estate
DeVotchKa – A New World
