100 Days, 100 Songs
Aero Flynn, S. Carey contribute brand new songs to protest mega-album
Eau-Claire-born, Minneapolis-based band Aero Flynn has been silent since releasing its debut self-titled album in 2015 – that is, until now. In the wake of last November’s election, they’ve teamed up with 99 other cool artists for a project called Our First 100 Days, a collaborative mega-album between record label collective Secretly Group and protest music project 30 Songs, 30 Days. For the first 100 days of Donald Trump’s presidency, one exclusive or never-before-head song will be released per day. Aero Flynn’s contribution, “Picture,” was released on day 36. The melancholy-yet-serene single is at once empathetic and hopeful. Frontman Josh Scott’s poignant lyrics allude to the power of the individual and inspire a feeling of unanimity in listeners across the country. S. Carey was featured on day nine with “Come To Me,” an eight-minute lament permeated with powerful instrumentals and ethereal vocals. For a minimum $30 donation, supporters receive digital copies of all 100 songs, and 100 percent of the album’s profits will go to environmentalist, women’s rights, immigrants’ rights, and other equality-based organizations.
