Hey folks,

So, some of you may be familiar with my band, from the Kagro in the Morning Show, on dailykos radio.  Well, our last record actually broke into the nation college radio chart(CMJ Radio 200), and we're working on our new one.  For this year's Record Store Day(4/20), we're releasing a 7" single with a few of the songs from our upcoming album.  Until then, we're making the tracks free to download off of our bandcamp page.  Tracks and links below the fold:

The first song is called Out in the Streets.  It is based on the writings of Victor Serge.  It's also sort of a look back at our involvement in the Occupy movement, and a reflection on the differences in messaging focus between the older activists that engaged, and the anarchist elements in the movement.

The second song is called Mysteries of St. Louis, Pt 1, and is the first in a pair of stream of consciousness musings on the writings of Henry Boernstein.

The tracks can be downloaded for free at theunionelectric.bandcamp.com

thanks!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
