Ry Cooder's new song about the Occupy Wall Street movement, "Wall Street Part of Town," was recorded last Tuesday and premiered on Pacifica Radio's Jon Wiener show on Wednesday, a fundraiser for the Pacifica Radio Archives' Campus Campaign National Education Project. It also aired on Democracy Now! with Amy Goodman. You can now listen to the song here, download it for free, then help spread the good word. Cooder's latest album, Pull Up Some Dust and Sit Down, was inspired by the inequities that spared the few from the financial crisis while most were left to fend for themselves.

Ry Cooder's new song about the Occupy Wall Street movement, "Wall Street Part of Town," premiered last week on the Jon Wiener show on KPFK 90.7 FM in Los Angeles, distributed via the Pacifica Radio network. Cooder recorded the song just last Tuesday, and it first aired on Wiener's show on Wednesday, a fundraiser for the Pacifica Radio Archives' Campus Campaign National Education Project, which places audio collections in high schools and colleges across the country. The song also aired on Democracy Now! with Amy Goodman last week. You can now listen to the song, download it for free, and help spread the good word via the player below.

Cooder's latest album, Pull Up Some Dust and Sit Down, released earlier this year on Nonesuch, was inspired by a news headline about the Wall Street bailout. He began work on the album with the track “No Banker Left Behind,” an ode to the corrupt few spared from the financial crisis while most were left to fend for themselves. Uncut calls this "one of his best albums ever ... an impassioned portrait of 21st century America and its injustices" in which Cooder is "remade as a modern-day Woody Guthrie, fearless and funny, for like Guthrie he nails his targets with droll humour while empathising with society's underdogs." The BBC calls it "essential listening."

To pick up a copy of Pull Up Some Dust and Sit Down, head to the Nonesuch Store, where CD orders included high-quality, 320 kbps MP3s at checkout. The album is also available as MP3s and FLAC lossless files.

    Rectangles and Circumstance, an album of ten songs co-written and performed by Caroline Shaw and Sō Percussion, is out now. Shaw and Sō's Eric Cha-Beach and Adam Sliwinski "sourced a group of nineteenth-century poems that shaped its expressive mode [and] ended up using verses by Christina Rosetti, Emily Brontë, Emily Dickinson, Gertrude Stein, and William Blake," says Sliwinski. "The lyrics on this album by members of the band contain wordplay that explores the same profound feelings explored by Blake and Dickinson.” Shaw and Sō co-produced the album with Grammy-winning engineer Jonathan Low (The National, Taylor Swift). Also out today is a video for the album track "Sing On," which you can watch here.
