I just found this. It’s a free jazz set from saxophonist Arrington de Dionyso and drummer Sam Klickner. They call themselves This Saxophone Kills Fascists, and in addition to album titles that reference the tragically relevant “First They Came…” statement, the album covers are demonic images of Donald Trump.
I didn’t particularly enjoy this music, but it sure as hell connected. The November recording dates indicate that, in the aftermath of the election, these musicians hit a record button and everything they played came from the heart and with as much anger and fear and hope and every other damn thing they had inside dying to get out. That’s something I can relate to. Because, seriously, fuck this shit.
It’s on Bandcamp.
