Track of the Day 509 : Joan of Arc – Vampire E.R.

Our First 100 Days is a charity project set up to support causes and organisations who are under threat from the policies of the Trump presidency. A new track will be posted every day of the first 100 days of the presidency, and a donation of $30 or more will allow you to subscribe to the whole series.

Bands featured so far include everyone from Jason Molina to A Place to Bury Strangers. Some tracks attack Trump directly, some obliquely, some are not obviously political at all, but the quality is almost uniformly high. My personal favourite to date (they’re about halfway through the project), is Vampire E.R. by Joan of Arc, a band I’ll admit to knowing little about. It’s a kind of post-apocalyptic fable, almost spoken word with a kind of dark post-rock vibe, and the mood somehow fits perfectly with the project.

The first 483 tracks of the day can only be found on my Tumblr. Everything since can be found here. There’s also a Spotify playlist of every single track of the day (or those available on Spotify at least) below:
