Audio Vision: Anjulie Asks Who Do You Stand Behind?
Monday, November 21, 2011
Not to get all political on you on this Monday, but one thing 2011 will be remembered for is the year where people got mad as hell and couldn't take it anymore. With Occupy Wall Street at a close and the handful of revolutions that occurred in the Middle East, (not to mention the the US presidential campaigning freakshow is going on right now), citizens of this planet have gotten off their bums and began to protest in ways that haven't occurred since the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960's. For some reason we probably thought that we didn't need to do this anymore, but the 99% found out that there is some fight left in us.
Music has oddly been silent towards this with sprinkles of tracks here and there that even hint at political themes. To fill that gap, here comes Anjulie, not well known in a sense that she can sucker listeners into believing they are activists, but she's got a little fist-pumping track called, "Stand Behind The Music". It's not the greatest track in the world, and pretty generic in structure terms , but there is a message there and it's a far better message than the messy "Brand New Bitch" from earlier this year (seriously, what happened to the off-beat Anjulie? Yet another one sucked into the Rihanna machine *sigh*). Anjulie even hits the heart strings by showing the real people behind the movements (mostly Occupy Wall Street occupiers) in this visual. So kudos to Anjulie for stepping to the plate with this. As for the other 1%, they need not watch and just keep eating their cake.
