A lot happens in our scene each day. In an attempt to capture what you might've missed, we gather up noteworthy moments and package them in one convenient post. Check out today's recap below!
1. The 1975 gifted Late Night With Seth Meyers with a beautiful performance of their track, “Somebody Else.” Check it out:
“Somebody Else” comes from the 1975's most recent album, I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It, which released in February of this year.
2. It's election day. To celebrate, Modern Baseball unveiled an anti-Trump, 'Simpsons'-referenced song, “Bart To The Future, Pt. 2: The Musical.”
The track is latest edition to the 30 Days, 30 (now 50) Songs project, written and recorded by artists for a Trump-free America and includes Death Cab For Cutie. Not only does “Bart To The Future” have political significance—but it's also Modern Baseball's first new track since their release Holy Ghost from a few months back.
According to Stereogum, this is what the band had to say about the track:
“It was impossible to say EVERYTHING we wanted to say about Trump. We knew that by looking at him as a peer, rather than this untouchable figure, we could judge and treat him like any other greedy, self-centered, short-tempered, racist, sexist, unqualified person you meet in everyday life. Still, knowing that name calling will get you nowhere—we kept our examples generalized so that listeners can come to their own conclusions about how Trump really is, and how he would be as POTUS.“
3. Signed to SharpTone Recods, British band Don Broco premiered a music video for their track, “Superlove.”
The band's album, Automatic, will be released internationally by Sharptone this Friday.
