Protests by Moby and Uniform - "I Hate Radio" Music News 1/21/2017

Curated Music News


Every Monday through Friday I am doing curated music news posts (in other words, curating the music news that is interesting to me). I used to just post links, but now I do full posts (so I can explain why things interest me).

Every Tuesday, I put out a new playlist, this week's playlist included several decades of electronic music, you can hear it and read about all the bands HERE or just listen:

Yesterday, I covered the Rolling Stones Trump frustration, Run the Jewels Protest Playlist, and Arcade Fire's new song, you can read that post HERE.

Moby's Inauguration Protest Playlist


Moby released this great protest playlist (including lots of PE). I won't lie, it has been a tough day for me, I feel not just like my country is much less cool and progressive but also like the Democratic party apparatus really let us all down (not having a better strategy over the last decade for holding states and stopping gerrymandering is only the beginning of the problem).

So, what I have this week is music, and I am listening to as much of it as I can. Thanks to RTJ yesterday and thanks to Moby for this list today! 

He also released this video:

Moby also has a newish album with the Void Pacific Choir:

"Uniform" Predicts It Might All End In Nuclear Winter

Okay, well that video is actually about mass shootings in America..but, given that our new leader loves him some NRA, that is going to get worse too. Great video, hugely impactful, and a great song (reminds me of Ministry).

Anyway, for some reason, that video makes me think of one of my top five all-time favorite movies:

The living may envy the dead.

A sacrifice will be required for the survival of the human race :)

Of course, one of the best memes from today was when people realized that Trump's inaugural address plagiarized the Dark Knight's, Bane (apparently, that desk in the Mar-O-Lago lobby faces a television): 

Anyway, Uniform's new album is really good:

The Totals For The Week


So, I included music from at least 23 artists this week (including today).

Let's make it 24...Here is the new Japandroids album (Woo Hoo!)

I hope you will help me try to share the music from those artists across your social channels, the whole point of this is to create a network that helps music that won't get pushed by official channels (Pirate Satellite).
