What’s better than Pearl Jam recording an anti-Bush song? How about Elmer Creek Conspiracy’s America In Denial, a CD recorded by an indie group consisting of “two Vietnam vets and two Canadians from a borderline community, with backgrounds ranging through folk, blues, country and jazz [who] have come together to bring forth a different kind of state of the union address.”
The songs are brilliant, including “Promised Land” (a song about illegal immigration) and the title track, which aims to show just how blind mainstream America has been to the abuses perpetrated by the Bush administration.
Music has a way of getting a point across where text or speech cannot. Hopefully enough people here this CD to make a difference.
