The MoJo Mix

What we’re listening to: Our favorite mp3’s.




Norah Jones

Booker T. organ lines and hushed, Joplinesque vocals


Shades of Nevermind and Sgt. Pepper


Nothin’ but lo-fi beat-box tenderness

DJ Danger Mouse

A mix of Jay-Z’s Black Album and “Mother Nature’s Son” from the Beatles’ White Album

Erin McKeown

Björky vocals, beguiling syntax: “Tonight, woke I in a strange bed.”

The Shins

“In a movie so crass and awkwardly cast, even I could be the star.”

Olu Dara

A bluesy take on a Bahamian sailor spiritual (by the father of rapper Nas)

Mason Jennings

A perfectly contagious, conflicted ode to love

Michael Franti

Sultry funk from the planet’s grooviest conspiracy theorist

Will Kimbrough

A full-grown Southern lullaby: “Good night, ol’ broke-down cars…”


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
