Dave Eggers’ 30 Days, 30 Songs project, which is releasing anti-Trump music every day until the election, has already given us Death Cab For Cutie’s “Million Dollar Loan” and Franz Ferdinand’s “Demagogue,” and now it’s kicking off its second week with a new track from Matt Berninger and Brent Knopf’s group El Vy. Titled “Are These My Jets,” the 30 Days, 30 Songs website says it’s “a song about walrus penis jewelry,” but the same thing could be said about most political music. The video is based around a video game character named Richard Walrus who is flying around in a little plane and blowing things up while a giant Abraham Lincoln looks on and weeps. It’s pretty deep stuff (we assume).

Also, as a fun surprise, you can actually play the Richard Walrus game on the 30 Days, 30 Songs website or at this link. The Franz Ferdinand one may have had art by Shepard Fairey, but it didn’t have some kind of Shepard Fairey video game. There are still 22 days to go until the election, so we’ll be getting plenty more weird stuff like this.
