Music for the times
I've been on a 5-week road trip, mostly for work (developing Mutual Aid Networks http://mutualaidnetwork.org - check it out!) with one or two shows thrown in.
On the road I happened to listen to my old band's (The Coma Savants) CD, Coma Savant, for the first time in years. I really loved it. And realized it's really topical right now. Songs about the disappearance of the middle class, consumerism (late capitalism) and war, global climate change. But it's not all depressing. Made me think to put it on special so you can download it and check it out for yourself.
Then I was also thinking that leads well into Up The Wall, the continuation of thoughts on that story plus The Turnaround into a new story. Dreamworld continues it, every thing everything brings us up to the present and near future.
These thoughts coincided with Jon having upgraded our downloading situation, so I thought I'd offer a little special.
Get Coma Savant, Dreamworld, Up the Wall and every thing everything for whatever you want to donate. Ideally $30 or up, because I do wish somehow to recoup recording costs and also fund my life. But I'd like the music to reach your ears however it works for you.

ps We have a Ladyscissors show at the Tip Top Tavern in Madison on Friday April 22! And just recorded our 2nd album, being mixed now! I'll start on a video when I return to Madison next week.
