Bella Ciao (Goodbye Beautiful)
Marc Ribot (feat. Tom Waits) - s/t

"It’s been a while since we had any new Tom Waits music (2 years), but he’s back with a new version of a very old song that is depressingly relevant for the world we’re in today. As reported by Pitchfork, the track is “Bella Ciao,” a collaboration with guitarist Marc Ribot for his upcoming album Songs Of Resistance 1948-2018. If you don’t recognize the name, “Bella Ciao” was an Italian folk ballad that was revised and re-written during World War II for the Italian anti-fascist resistance fighters, and it has since become an anthem of sorts for anyone looking to stick it to fascists.

The song also comes with a video (directed by Jem Cohen) that makes its parallels with modern life very explicit, pairing Waits’ vocals with footage of police and soldiers guarding barricades at anti-Trump protests. It may sound heavy-handed, but fuck it, nobody said fighting fascists had to be subtle."

The Monotymes - Love Sick Canadian

The Monotymes were forged under the warm and welcoming glow of awe inspiring local acts like Sparklesaurus and Potential Red. We drew our inspiration from basement EP releases and evenings spent sitting cross-legged on kitchen floors talking about how much we admired and adored our ever-growing web of mutual friends playing music in Ottawa. We are just some kids who play indie-pop. Our songs are each their own catchy story, usually revolving around a character we see within ourselves or within our community. If you listen closely, you might find that you know this person too. We will always love to write about heartbreak in the most danceable way possible, we will always love tears and laughter and keyboards effects and arson.
