Holy Underground Mixtape #1—An Austin playlist curated by Eye in the Sky Collective.

The Holy Underground Mixtape Series features new and rising artists from different local scenes nationwide. Every month or so, the fellas over at Holy Underground—a brand new Denver-based music company & record label—will be reaching out to their friends in different cities to show a snapshot of the best music their cities have to offer.

The first installation in the series comes to us from Austin, Texas, and is curated by our friends at Eye in the Sky Collective—an organization providing an alternative model for the music industry, one that empowers independent artists to create a sustainable career and encourages fans to directly support the artists they love.
