A link to good music


From Bandcamp:

With Trump’s first 100 days in office upon us, action must be taken to protect the causes that will come under threat from this administration.

Our First 100 Days seeks to aid in that protection. Joining together with artists and labels we will be releasing one rare, unreleased or exclusive song per day to you via Bandcamp.

For a minimum contribution of $30, supporters will be able to access all 100 songs in the project, including new music from Angel Olsen, How To Dress Well, Toro Y Moi, The Range and many more.

All profits raised from Our First 100 Days will go directly to organizations working on the front lines of climate, women’s rights, immigration and fairness.

The project was started in conjunction with Secretly Group and 30 Songs, 30 Days, and aims to raise funds and awareness for organizations supporting causes that are under threat by the proposed policies of a Trump administration. This project is produced with the help of Revolutions Per Minute, an organization that provides strategy and support for artists making change.

Epic Music Post

Facebook friend and notable Nanaimo saxophonist Cameron Wigmore makes a post that basically asks for his friends favourite music selections. I want to immortalize this valuable window of useful  information!

So here is a list which I plan to hyperlink completely.  I’ll be screening tunes for my radio show, so maybe I’ll even write my reviews of some music, too. In the meantime, I will begin attaching active links to the artist names. Of course, in this futuristic-pirate world, I suggest paying the artists some cash for their troubles. Somehow, someway. Hopefully by shelling out to see them play live, or by purchasing copies of their music.

The following is what Cam’s FBfriends suggested:

Broken Bells, Menahan Street Band, SOHN, Bear In Heaven, Tame Impala, and Beach House.
