Published Jul 22, 2014Canadian music vet Art Bergmann recently emerged from hiding to announce his Songs for the Underclass comeback EP for (weewerk), and now he's shared a song from the collection with "Drones of Democracy."
The song is a slow, shadowy tune that takes a fiery, Crazy Horse-style approach to spaghetti western atmospheres. A press release describes the tune like this: "The making of a sleeper cell. Drones manufactured in the heart of America. How to explain the use of advanced weapons, cluster-bombs, made to shred tanks. Weapons used on innocents, man, woman, and child alike. If you think Neil Young wrote this, well yeah, I wanted my own Cortez."
