Today sees the second installment of of 30 Days, 30 Songs, an independent project in support of defeating this year’s Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump. Created by writer Dave Eggers and the team that brought you 2012’s 90 Days, 90 Reasons, 30 Days, 30 Songs is a daily, evolving playlist, which has already seen contributions from the likes of Death Cab for Cutie, Franz Ferdinand, Aimee Mann, and more.
Upon the project’s launch last week, submissions for the playlist poured in from artists all over the world, all of whom wanted to support the cause. As such, 30 Days, 30 Songs will now include more music than originally intended, so keep an eye on the website for more than one song a day.
This week’s songs kicks off today with an inspired track by EL VY, entitled “Are These My Jets,” which is paired with a brilliant video game created by the band for what they call a “cathartic interactive experience,” as well as a lyric video for the song.
This week also includes artists such as Cooties, whose video features Reggie Watts, R.E.M., Adia Victoria, Moby, Ledinsky, Filthy Friends (Corin Tucker of Sleater-Kinney, Peter Buck of R.E.M., Scott McCaughey, Bill Rieflin, Kurt Bloch), Us Elevator (feat. Mac McCaughan of Superchunk & Tim Bluhm of the Motherhips) and Vinnie Paz.
