“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. Those 100 days are almost up and the latest addition is from Jay Som (aka Melina Duterte), who contributes “Turn the Other Cheek.” Listen below.

Jay Som’s debut full-length album, Everybody Works, came out last month via Polyvinyl. Pick up or download Under the Radar‘s current print issue, the Spring 2017 Issue, to read our new interview with Jay Som about Everybody Works.
