Leland Sundries - "Another Friday Night News Dump"

Last week was one of the craziest weeks in my memory. Just as we thought it couldn't get crazier, Friday night brought news of Donald Trump being permanently kicked off Twitter, with the rest of social media to come. Friday also saw the release of the video for Leland Sundries' new single, the appropriately named "Another Friday Night News Dump." It's a resigned song about how we've all come to expect another piece of crappy news released on Friday nights in the last four years. If it can be a considered a protest song, it's one I can relate to as it's more just a sighing, depressed song more than one calling for an uprising. Musically, it fits into what we love about Leland Sundries. It's an indie rock meets Americana song, but for this one they've injected a little 80's New Wave without the New Wave (I promise it will make sense once you listen).

You can watch the video for "Another Friday Night News Dump" below. The song is available as a single via Bandcamp. For more on Leland Sundries, check out the band's website.
