Oh baby I will read
About the buzzing of the bees
About the grass and snakes and spawning lakes and the different types of trees
And I will find a way
That leads from cruel April into May
And someday soon it will be June and you’ll decide to stay

Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls: The Opening Act of Spring

“True Believer” is a comparatively restrained, slow clipping. track, and the new video matches the subdued-but-intense atmosphere. Splendor & Misery, the 2016 concept album by the avant-rap group featuring Tony Award winner Daveed Diggs, was just nominated for a Hugo Award in the category Best Dramatic Presentation (Short Form)

Fascinating. 

Brooklyn rapper Joey Bada$$ released the track “Land of the Free” on Inauguration Day this year. The song is another example that the most interesting, challenging, expressive protest music today comes in the form of rap, hip hop and r’n’b. Joey Bada$$ performed a great version of the track on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
