I don’t think it’s just 20/20 hindsight that gives the impression that the music of 2016 is permeated by a sense of existential dread.
The past year was nothing if not a “low-flying panic attack” … .
On this day in which we honor America’s greatest advocate for nonviolent protest—and in honor of the recent withdrawal of troops from Iraq—I present 14 Anti-War Songs for the 21st Century for your listening enjoyment/outrage.
Having played “Rocksmith” the other day, I think it has real potential to not only revive the demand for music games but to actually teach people how to play guitar. (Take if from me, someone who hasn’t spent significant time playing a video game since “Super Smash Brothers”!)
Like a lot of people, music got me through that week.
