YACHT Releases NSA Protest Song Featuring Marc Maron

"Party At the NSA"

Aug 15, 2013 YACHT Bookmark and Share

Portland electro-pop duo YACHT have unveiled a brand new single, “Party at the NSA.”

As the song’s title would suggest the track is a protest send-up of the U.S. security agency, and features guitar work by comedian Marc Maron, who has extensively advocated for digital rights and Patent Trolls.

“We live much of our lives online; we should be outraged by the extent of the NSA’s domestic spying programs,” the band says in a statement. “Instead, we are sinking into a dangerous indifference. Insidious forces are at work. Help us reverse the entropy.”

Available for purchase through a pay-what-you-want donation, 100 percent of the proceeds from “Party at the NSA” will go to the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a nonprofit leading the fight against the NSA’s illegal mass surveillance program. Click here to download the song directly.

The dystopian fantasies of yesteryear are now a reality.  We’ve allowed the coming of an age where the civil liberties our forefathers fought so hard for are being eroded by the day.  Freedom of Press, Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Assembly are mere ghostly images of their original intent.  We’ve woken up to an Orwellian Society of Fear where anyone is at the mercy of being labeled a terrorist for standing up for rights we took for granted just over a decade ago.  Read about how we’re waging war against ourselves at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/09/living-in-society-of-fear-ten-years.html

It’s a funny and unique-parody tune that has some serious undertones. YACHT seems to understand the severity of the NSA survellience that a lot of Americans haven’t grasped yet. Not that it is becoming a tin-foil hat type situation, but when the NSA has businesses making decisions based on how secure their information is (whether it’s the NSA or a 3rd-party that they’re concerned about), it catches your eye. This survey details IT professionals willingness to recommend cloud technology in the age of the NSA and data encryption not being as secure as we might want it. http://findaccountingsoftware.com/expert-advice/study-will-the-nsa-scandal-slow-cloud-software-adoption/
