Song Of The Day #19

Today’s song is by The Nightwatchman – A project started in 2003 by Tom Morello as a spiritual release from the soul-stealing collaboration that was Audioslave. Basically,
he had the paycheck job (hence the word ‘slave’ in their band name) and he had this project.

[Don’t think I am hating on Audioslave, as I can appreciate their music just fine. I just think it was a shame how blatantly obvious it was that the band was phoning it in.]

Anyways, in that time, Morello has used this project to get across his strong leftist political views. His new record “World Wide Rebel Songs” (Due August 30th) continues on this trend, but sees The Nightwatchman putting down the acoustic in exchange for the more recognizable sound of his electric guitar and pedal boxes. Here’s a taste:
