This show was originally posted to Phuture Frequency's website for Motion Radio back in October of 2008, inspired by the implosion of America's economy and the mounting tensions in the face of what was arguably the most important election in the nation's history. I decided to string some songs together that (hopefully) spoke towards the hope, passion, paranoia, disgust, and hopelessness some stateside citizens were facing. This mix contains strong language in places, some of it uttered by children (see the Sun Ra cut as covered by Yo La Tengo).
I am of the opinion that what happened in 2008 will be nothing compared to what goes down in 2012. And even though this mix was made at the conclusion of the Bush Presidency, I often wonder how much of the feelings expressed in this mix still apply in the age of Obamanomics. I think it's something to consider as you listen. Hope you enjoy this one...
