We’re just shy of two weeks into the Trump presidency, and it’s clear already that people wishing to resist his agenda find themselves both needing channels of action and means to take care and comfort in dangerous times. Rough Trade Publishing is trying its hands at doing both with a new “A Song A Day Keeps The Pain Away” subscription program. Artists from across the publishing companies pretty staggering catalog are contributing unreleased tracks, which subscribers will get every day for the first 90 days of 2017, with all proceeds going to the Southern Poverty Law Center. Among the announced artists are Rachel Grimes, Kevin Devine, Juliana Hatfield, and Lushlife. Yesterday, New York noise rock veterans A Place to Bury Strangers released their contribution, a track called “Bad Decision.”
