Artist: The Mammals

Från: West Hurley, NY USA

Om artisten och låten: a protest song you can dance to!

“Hailed by many as Americana trailblazers, Ruth Ungar and Mike Merenda, happily married and exuding togetherness on stage, are also gently-mannered activists with well-crafted songs that successfully ask potent questions of politicians and raise issues to probe how we can improve the planet. They deliver their material persuasively and in an eloquent manner with enjoyment of their music underpinning the approach overall. The music is the motivator throughout.”

"Like a superhero called to the scene of a crisis, The Mammals have returned with encouraging words of compassion and hope just when they’re needed most… “Nonet” was recorded before the pandemic, yet the timeless concerns it addresses — the common good, environmental responsibility, and resistance to injustice — feel especially relevant now… Nonet marshals the defiant spirit needed to heal a damaged world… With so much uncertainly in the air right now, The Mammals’ clear-eyed optimism is especially valuable. If “Nonet” won’t solve the world’s ills, it surely makes it easier to face them. - No Depression

"Protest folk records are usually reactionary, but somehow Mike + Ruthy seem to have predicted this moment with their new album.” - Pipeline, Jeff Breeze

"[Nonet] is big and free and uplifting me at the perfect time! A great fuckin’ record.” - Ani DiFranco

East Side West Side

I’m singin’ from the north side to the south side
We could be stronger than ever before
I’m singin’ from the east side to the west side
From the shore to the shinin’ shore

Keep a-walkin’ on a good path ‘round the big world
Come back and tell me what you’ve found
We can fight or we can wrestle with the details
But we’re standin’ on common ground

If this land is your land, if this land is mine
Then let’s not leave it dirty for the ones that come behind
It’s our to care for and it’s ours share
We’ve all gotta drink the water and we’ve all gotta breathe the air

I’m singin’ from the north side to the south side
We could be stronger than ever before
I’m singin’ from the east side to the west side
From the shore to the shinin’ shore

Keep a-walkin’ on a good path ‘round the big world
Come back and tell me what you’ve found
We can fight or we can wrestle with the details
But we’re standin’ on common ground

We don’t have to agree on everything and that’s ok
But let’s agree on something and make a better day
I’m not sayin that we’re better, not lookin' for a boast or a brag
But i’d like to feel proud when i look up at that flag

I’m singin’ from the north side to the south side
We could be stronger than ever before
I’m singin’ from the east side to the west side
From the shore to the shinin’ shore

Keep a-walkin’ on a good path ‘round the big world
Come back and tell me what you’ve found
We can fight or we can wrestle with the details
But we’re standin’ on common ground

My country tis of thee sweet land of liberty
Close minded bigotry open hostility
So stand or take a knee just join your hands with me
Let freedom ring come on let me hear you sing

I’m singin’ from the north side to the south side
We could be stronger than ever before
I’m singin’ from the east side to the west side
From the shore to the shinin’ shore

Keep a-walkin’ on a good path ‘round the big world
Come back and tell me what you’ve found
We can fight or we can wrestle with the details
But where are we standin’. . .
