During the election many indie rock musicians released anti-Donald Trump songs and likely assumed, like many liberals and Hillary Clinton supporters did, that Trump didn't have a strong chance of winning. But of course he did win and on January 20 we get a President Donald Trump. So the resistance continues and the good folks behind the "30 Days, 30 Songs" anti-Trump campaign have teamed up with Secretly Group for the "Our First 100 Days" project. They plan to release a new song every day during the first 100 days of Trump's presidency, starting January 20. 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 AllCosechaHoosier ActionPeople's Climate Movement, and Southerners On New Ground. Artists taking part include: Angel Olsen, Mitski, Whitney, Toro Y Moi, TORRES, Strand of Oaks, The Range, Tim Heidecker, Will Oldham, The Mountain Goats, Avey Tare, Jens Lekman, Cherry Glazerr, Peter Silberman of The Antlers, Bully, Twin Peaks, Wild Nothing, How to Dress Well, and many more are involved. Find all the info here, where you can also preorder. 

Phil Waldorf of Secretly Group had this to say about the project in a press release: "Many of us woke up the morning after the election in a state of shock. Everything was different. We knew that we had to do something, and we are incredibly proud of what we are pulling together with Our First 100 Days. Not only is it a collection of great music, it is the music community coming together, supporting many important organizations who will be the first line of defense against the policies of the new administration. We hope that people not only love the music and discover some new things with this collection, but they see it as an easy way to make a contribution to a cross section of organizations that need the support right now."
