Plus Songs by Jessica Lea Mayfield, Adam Torres, Cross Record, and Tara Jane O'Neil
"Our First 100 Days" is a new anti-President Donald Trump project. The good folks behind the "30 Days, 30 Songs" anti-Trump campaign during the election have teamed up with Secretly Group for "Our First 100 Days." They plan to release a new song every day during the first 100 days of Trump's presidency. Today's addition is from DRINKS, the project of San Francisco born Tim Presley of White Fence and Welsh singer/songwriter/guitarist Cate Le Bon, who contribute "I Am a Miserable Pig." Also in the last week there have been songs by Jessica Lea Mayfield ("The World Won't Stop (Demo)"), Tim Heidecker ("Trump Talkin' Nukes"), Adam Torres ("Dreamers in America"), Cross Record ("Sharpness"), Tara Jane O'Neil ("Ballad of El Goodo"), and The Range ("Retune (Redone)"). Listen to all the songs below.

Since then there have been songs by PWR BTTM ("Vacation"), Animal Collective's Avey Tare ("Visit the Dojo," a demo from his Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks project), Jason Molina (the previously unreleased "Royko"), Women ("Group Transport Hall (Alternate Version)"), Suuns ("Native Tongue"), Tilman Robinson and Luke Howard ("Requiem for 2016"), Meat Wave ("Dogs At Night"), S.
