SO BREXIT HAS HAPPENED, OUR FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS ARE AT RISK AS QUEER PEOPLE; MASS IGNORANCE AND AVOIDANCE HAS ONCE AGAIN OVER-RULED THE PROGRESSIVE, COMMITTED NOTIONS OF AN INFORMED, POST-INTERNET GENERATION.

SO WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO?!

STAYING ANGRY IS NOT PROGRESSIVE, SPREADING HATE IS NOT PROGRESSIVE, BUT HAVING THESE EMOTIONS AND PROCESSING THEM IS.

THEN WE CAN BUILD OUR STRENGTH, UNIFY, AND TAKE THE NEXT BEST ACTION.

So here’s Artpornblog’s TOP 3 music recommendations for having anger, channeling it, finding space, and healing our own wounds…

NUMBER 1:

SUICIDAL TENDENCIES by SUICIDAL TENDENCIES

This album resonates on our anger frequencies! It is a visceral hit of politicised rage and obnoxious wailing, mixed with skull crunching fuzz and naastee fast drums. Tracks such as “Two-sided Politics”, “I Shot the Devil”, and “Institutionalized”, will sure gives us the relation we need in moments of fury and confused, deep set hurt.

The blood boils, the skin sweats and the steam flies out the ears!

This allows us to feel the anger, the fuel, the violence through our headphones instead of actually going out and acting on it. In short, don’t kill people, have a moshpit instead!

ARDIPITHECUS by WILLOW

The opening track of this album, “Organization and Classification” says everything that needs to be said to remind us that there is a path for our rage.

Do not keep adding fuel to a wild fire, be angry but fuel yourself! Inform yourself, be smart, be present, be on point!

Willow’s astounding honesty and straight up lyrics whip us into ranks; an army of knowledgable artists, poets, hackers and digital activists awaits the next step – we can change things, but we must be truthful with ourselves and each other.

The production takes us to nature; reminding us that is important to get perspective and remember what we are part of. We cannot rely on the government, we cannot cloud ourselves with the valium that is consumerism and the high street. Primark will not save us now! But nature will not let us down!

We can be reassured by the true roots that connect all of us regardless of our physical race, gender, sexuality, age, or any other external box society places us in. Nature does not make boxes, humans do.

SILENT MEDITATION by NATURE:

Let us not forget what is free to all humanity. The one thing that is available to all of us yet the one thing that so many try to control, ignore and escape.

Silence can seem scary and it can be an effort to find it. But if we take a step out of our brains and out of such busy places ruled by advertisements and greed then we can tune into infinite freedom.

Take yourself to a forest, to a mountain, to the sea, to a park. Anywhere that is majoritally natural and free of man’s influence. Sit, stand or lay in silence, whatever is most comfortable and breathe. Calm the noise, free yourself of the extra and just listen to the sounds around you.

Even nature is not fully silent so you will not feel alone.

Take stock, get present, and remember that nature is not going to hurt you.
