    I guess if there is anything good to come out of Donald Trump's presidency, it would be this compilation of music... Well, it's kind of like a funeral. There are some family members you just never see unless a relative has passed away. We wish we were getting new music from these incredible artists under better circumstances, but hey, at least we're getting something...

    Our First 100 Days is kicking off today on a strong note, with a new song from Angel Olsen, "Fly On Your Wall." There are 99 more songs that will be released from a plethora of other phenomenal artists like Mitski, Ty Segall, Waxahatchee, How To Dress Well, and more. It costs $30 (minimum donation) to preorder and goes to organizations that are threatened by Trump's proposals: All Above All, Cosecha, Hoosier Action, Peoples Climate Movement, and Southerners On New Ground.

    Olsen's song is perfect for the occasion and features her identifiable sound with retro drums and raw guitars. Her vocal is defiant, as it calls out, "Now I just can't take it back, oh I'd do anything but that / To have a glimpse of the dream, the vivid memory," and works up to a change of rhythm. It's powerful but in a classy way. We're excited to hear the rest that comes from Our First 100 Days, which you can preorder HERE.
