AN ALBUM TO UNSEAT GEORGE: We're not entirely sure the news that a bunch of left-leaning indie acts have put together an album against him is going to cause too much in the way of upset at the White House, but every small shove helps. And, what's more, it's a pretty good album, too; it includes the first track from the posthumous Elliot Smith album, as well:

1. OK GO: This Will Be Our Year
2. David Byrne: Aint Got So Far To Go
3. Jimmy Eat World: Game Of Pricks (BBC evening
4. Death Cab for Cutie: This Temporary Life
5. Blink-182: I Miss You (James Guthrie Mix)
6. Mike Doughty: Move On
7. Ben Kweller: Jerry Falwell Destroyed The Earth
8. Sleater-Kinney: Off With Your Head
9. R.E.M.: Final Straw (MoveOn Mix)
10. Bright Eyes: Going For The Gold (Live)
11. The Long Winters: The Commander Thinks Aloud
(future mix)
12. of The Black Eyed Peas: Money
13. They Might Be Giants: Tippecanoe and Tyler Too
14. Clem Snide: The Ballad of David Icke
15. Yeah Yeah Yeahs: Date With The Night (Live)
16. Fountains of Wayne: Everythings Ruined (Acoustic)
17. Nada Surf: Your Legs Grow
18. The Flaming Lips: Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots
(live on the BBC)
19. Old 97s: Northern Line
20. Laura Cantrell: Sam Stone
21. Tom Waits: Day After Tomorrow
22. Elliott Smith: A Distorted Reality is now
Necessary to be Free

I'm sure it won't escape the sharp eyed boys down at Fox News that there's a couple tracks originally recorded by the BBC on there - damnit, you just knew they were pinkos, didn't you. The CD is called Future Soundtrack of America, and has been put together to raise cash for progressive groups by McSweeneys, and Barsuk Records. There's also a book, The Future Dictionary of America, which does a similar thing but with words.
