If the past few weeks of election coverage have felt more like a couple of years, you're not alone.
That's just one reason 30 Days, 30 Songs feels like such a light at the end of the tunnel: It's confirmation that we've hit a 30-day countdown. The project, helmed by Noise Pop co-founder Jordan Kurland and McSweeney's founder Dave Eggers, will release one new, original anti-Trump song from both emerging and established artists each morning at 9am until Election Day; a statement by the day's artist accompanies a YouTube video and Spotify stream at the website 30days30songs.com.
Day one, on Oct. 10, brought a new Death Cab for Cutie song called "Million Dollar Loan," while the morning of Oct. 11 delivered a wry, uptempo song by Aimee Mann written from the Donald's point of view, called "Can't You Tell?"
"I wanted to write about Trump in the first person because I think it's more interesting to speculate on what people’s inner life might be," writes Mann in the post accompanying her contribution. "I had heard a theory that Trump’s interest in running for President was really kicked off at the 2011 White House Correspondent’s dinner when President Obama basically roasted him, so that’s where I started. And my own feeling was that it wasn’t really the job itself he wanted, but the thrill of running and winning, and that maybe it had all gotten out of hand and was a runaway train that he couldn’t stop."
