"Our First 100 Days" is an 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 EMA (aka Erika M. Anderson), who contributes "Stand With You (Song for Ghostship)." The title is a reference to the Oakland DIY venue Ghost Ship, which caught fire a few months ago, leading to the death of dozens of musicians and music fans. Listen below, followed by a statement she posted to Twitter about the song. It's been three years since EMA's last album, The Future's Void, but hopefully this is an indication that there's more new music on the horizon from her. In fact, she also offered an update on Twitter about that today, saying that the album is pretty much done but is too political for her previous label Matador to release and so it's coming out via the German label City Slang. See that statement below too.

"Our First 100 Days" launched on inauguration day with a new Angel Olsen song, "Fly on Your Wall." 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. Carey ("Come to Me"), Entrance ("Not Gonna Say Your Name (A Cappella Mix)"), Joan of Arc ("Vampire E.R."), Peter Silberman of The Antlers (covering The Flaming Lips' "Feeling Yourself Disintegrate"), Toro Y Moi ("Omaha"), Bill Fay ("Shame"), Helado Negro ("Levantar Las Piernas (2012 Demo)"), Bowerbirds ("Sweet Hereafter"), Califone ("Comedy"), Ryley Walker ("The Great & Undecided (Alt Version)"), Hurray For the Riff Raff ("Everybody Knows"), 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"), The Range ("Retune (Redone)"), DRINKS ("I Am a Miserable Pig"), A Place to Bury Strangers ("Everyone's the Same"), Surfer Blood ("Bacon Frying"), Mind Over Mirrors ("Sky Colorer"), Dntel feat. Benoit Pioulard ("Fringes of Focus"), Will Johnson ("All Our Deeds (Sure Find Their Ways)"), Speedy Ortiz ("In My Way"), Here We Go Magic ("D"), and others.
