Dark Optimism – the album!

by Shaun Chamberlin on December 31st, 2011

Because why not? :)

A collection of songs from various genres, all in some way pertinent to the state of the world as we enter the new year. Here’s hoping that the ’2012 apocalypse’ meme doesn’t encourage enough panic to fulfil itself!

(this ‘album’ is shaped by the songs contributed by Dark Optimism readers last year, and others since. Thanks all!)

Edit – January 2012: Ani DiFranco (song #9 above) turned up at OccupyLSX outside St. Paul’s the other day. See below :)
