UNDER THE RADAR: Billy Bragg – “King Tide and the Sunny Day Flood”.
This year, the great British folk-punk socialist protest-song master Billy Bragg is releasing a series of one-off songs, promising to address a bleak global political landscape. Last month, he gave us the anti-Trump screed “The Sleep Of Reason.” Today, he follows it up with “King Tide And The Sunny Day Flood,” an alt-country lament about all the terrible shit that’s going to happen if climate change continues unabated. Sample lyric: “Everyone’s a Libertarian till the brown water floods their home.” It’s a stressful listen! Listen to the song and read what Bragg has to say about it.
