The current U.S. presidential race is a vile intersection of pro wrestling and tabloid hysteria, and we still have the general election crunch time to look forward to. Making matters more surreal is Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore, who has announced that he’s making a record with Bernie Sanders. Sort of.
The song is called “Feel It In Your Guts,” and is described as is “a twelve-string acoustic piece laced with excerpts from Bernie Sanders’ speeches, touching on topics like the worship of money, economic inequality, social justice, and the need for basic human rights for all people.”
A thousand hand-numbered copies on white flexi-disc, which were available to people who donate to Bernie’s campaign, sold out in the blink of an eye. Still, you can get a free download here.
