But now I give you this protest song

Which Side Are You On - Dropkick Murphys

quote [ In solidarity for Wisconsin !

Lyrics :
Our father was a union man
some day i'll be one too.
The bosses fired daddy
what's our family gonna do?

Come all you good workers,
Good news to you I'll tell
Of how the good old union
Has come in here to dwell.

Which side are you on?
Which side are you on? (x2) ]

Happy May Day!

A Brief Compendium of Lost Albums, Stolen Songs and Unreleased Music

quote [ If there is anything that can make a strident music fan salivate in anticipation, it?s the idea of an unreleased track or lost album from a favourite band. It?s like catnip for the musicologist and can become like a biblical quest for a lost chalice of sound for the collector of rare grooves and scrapped singles. ]

Pitchfork is dead, but good reviewing doesn?t have to die with it.

quote [ others have pointed to Condé Nast?s original motive behind acquiring the website in 2015: to tap into ?a very passionate audience of Millennial males.? [?] This moment represents a new low for music journalism as a whole. ]

The more absurd the reasoning, the easier it is to believe.

Songs About Superman

quote [ Why was alternative rock inundated with hit songs about Superman throughout the 1990s and early 2000s? Consider the monoculture. ]

They call me Superman, I'm here to rescue you

Kaval, the prince of hard drum

quote [ Dabbling as well in dancehall and techno, the hyperproductive producer continues to trace his path without losing sight of raves and sound system spirits. ]

Interview and mix from 2021 ? some great EPs over the last years ? the soundcloud stream has up-to-date music, mostly other live mixes.

Son Rompe Pera

quote [ They ended up rejecting the marimba altogether (an un-cool instrument), leaning heavily into punk- but they eventually came full-circle, returning to the marimba, and bringing punk with them. [?] In 2016, after their father was killed in an act of local violence, the brothers nearly gave up on music until a chance meeting with the legendary Chilean cumbia group Chico Trujillo changed everything. ]

Great albums and great live performance from 2022 ? quote via ZZK Coachella announcement. (see also)
