Tilman Robinson & Luke Howard Share “Requiem for 2016” From “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. Today's addition is an instrumental song by composers Tilman Robinson and Luke Howard entitled "Requiem for 2016." 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)"), and Suuns ("Native Tongue").
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.
