Hurray for the Riff Raff Shares Song, “Everybody Knows,” for “First 100 Days” Anti-Trump Project
"Our First 100 Days" Will Include a New Song Every Day for the First 100 Days of Donald Trump's Presidency
"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 Hurray For the Riff Raff, the project of Alynda Segarra, who contributes "Everybody Knows." Hurray For the Riff Raff are releasing a new album, The Navigator, on March 10 via ATO. Listen below.
"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"), and Califone ("Comedy"), and Ryley Walker ("The Great & Undecided (Alt Version)").
It's a subscription service with a minimum donation of $30 and the proceeds will benefit various organizations that support causes Trump is against: All Above All, Cosecha, Hoosier Action, People's Climate Movement, and Southerners On New Ground.
