Sea Lion Records has made Election Day USA, a CD compilation of anti-Bush, anti-war music, free for download as .mp3s. I'm a sucker for political songs—even those I disagree with, so I enjoyed these even if they're not all musically top-notch. Besides, I agreed with most of them. And, some of them are pretty good on any terms, especially (in no particular order),
- John McCutcheon, Let’s Pretend (I actually heard this one on the radio once)
- The Positive Chi Units, Rise Up!
- Coiler, Rogue Nation
- John Kasper, Conspiracy of Silence
- Kris Penn, Coming Home No More
- Musical Graffiti, Peace Inside
- David Rovics, The War Is Over
… and then there's the Sonofa Bush rap which isn't my sort of thing, but will appeal to some.
Why does all this remind me of The Folk Song Army?
