Music Monday: Folk Sensation Bernie Sanders

Regardless of your politics, America can get behind on one thing for sure: we don’t really want to hear Bernie Sanders sing. President Obama might have a cool Al Green thing going on and W. Bush is a noted disciple of Pete Townshend, but every dirty pinko commie’s favorite septuagenarian senator doesn’t seem to have a voice that screams “give this man a record deal!”. But he’s 30 years ahead of all the barbs about gravel-throats and Brooklyn accents, because he put out an obscure folk record in the 1980s. It’s not available freely for streaming, but over at James Napoli’s Atavist blog there’s a great (and long) post about how the hell this happened in the first place.

For your listening pleasure, here’s a few snippets of it as well.
