Tom Morello – The Atlas Underground

Tom Morello is a tireless musician and activist who fights injustice. I admire his energy, passion, and commitment to causes. I support his mission.

Tom Morello’s new album The Atlas Underground is due out on October 12.

It is a diverse collaboration of guests including Killer Mike, Vic Mensa, Knife Party, Gary Clark Jr., Steve Aoki, amongst others.

“Amid this heightened sense of impending doom, it’s now time to rally the troops in a last-ditch effort to save the planet, and our artistic souls. By challenging the boundaries of what music is and has sounded like before, you can open people’s eyes to changing the status quo in society.” – Tom Morello

Occupy This Album Review: Disk 2

Occupy This Album Disk 2 begins with the premier vocal track by Michael Moore, “The Times They Are A-Changin”. I am very taken with his singing voice, he has nice tonality. I especially like that they interspersed part of his bullhorn speech from Zucotti Park into the mix.
