Amanda Palmer - New song Di(t)S?

title likely has nothing to do with this site, but after seeing and hearing it, I couldn’t help but wonder.

amandapalmer: i just dropped a brand-new track, written and recorded in 3 days with the help of over 600+ people on my patreon. all the public proceeds from the track benefit Texas Diaper Bank, who are helping alllll affected areas of harvey.

Proceeds go towards a diaper bank, so probably

Never heard it, its awful

Just seen this song. And this explanation:

this song was written as a two-day songwriting exercise on august 29th and 30th, 2017, using input/inspiration/comments from over 600 patrons (you can read those here). it wound up being a response to the insanity of internet politics melded with the recent total eclipse and the devastation of hurricane harvey….and, y’know…other stuff.

And reading the lyrics…

Remember that massive thread from a few years ago when people were (rightly) laying into her for trying to get professional musicians to play in her live band for free because they liked her music? Reckon it’s partly about that… and partly about the destruction and devastation caused by natural disasters.

Make of that what you will.

Nothing good can come of this…

bump.

Her whole new epic record is coming out next Friday, but it’s already streaming

Thanks for the heads up on this @allmediareviews; that’s my afternoon sorted, (once I get out of the hellhole that is the transport department …). :grinning:

I haven’t really liked much of her stuff I’ve heard previously but I mostly enjoyed that. Too long for me, though. When it came to Confessions of a Mother (or whatever) I just had to turn off after 5 minutes - something about the repetitive nature of the lyrical theme combined with the everyday nature of what she was retelling. I felt like the checkout guy in this classic
