Jason Molina, Avey Tare, and PWR BTTM Share Songs For “Our 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. It launched on Friday with a new Angel Olsen song, "Fly on Your Wall." Over the weekend there were songs by PWR BTTM ("Vacation") and Animal Collective's Avey Tare ("Visit the Dojo," a demo from his Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks project) and today they shared a Jason Molina song, "Royko." Molina passed away in 2013, so this is an outtake from Molina's 2004 album, Pyramid Electric Co. Listen to all three songs below.
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. Other artists taking part in "Our First 100 Days" include: Mitski, Whitney, Toro Y Moi, TORRES, Strand of Oaks, The Range, Tim Heidecker, Will Oldham, The Mountain Goats, Jens Lekman, Cherry Glazerr, Peter Silberman of The Antlers, Bully, Twin Peaks, Wild Nothing, How to Dress Well, and many more are involved.
