Welcome to the first Visionary Podcast, curated by The FADER and presented by ABSOLUT, as part of our ongoing efforts to advance and advocate the art and music we love. With these words—Doing Things Differently Leads to Something Exceptional—and accompanying awesome visual interpretations of those words by director Rupert Sanders as inspiration, we set about scouring our music libraries for the new songs that are doing it for us the most these days. The first of these podcasts is loosely associated with the word and image for "Doing." Doing anything basically, but as The FADER is known to do, we decided to make it mostly about having a good time—going surfing, hanging out with friends and romances, and of course, dancing your face off. Below, download the Visionary Podcast #1 with music from Smith Westerns, The Drums, Major Lazer, Washed Out and Hudson Mohawke. Check the tracklist after the jump, and come back in one week for #2, inspired by Things.
