Tom Morello The Nightwatchman: Live At Lime

Tom Morello, in collaboration with LimeWire store, recently released a 2-song single as The Nighwatchman (his alter ego), Live At Lime. This single is available for purchase, and all proceeds go to benefit Amnesty International. This is a great cause and for the price of a Coke, you get two amazing live acoustic tracks.

The first is a brilliant cover of The Killers Human, which is stunning. Sounding eerily like David Bowie, Morello performs a stripped down, intense version of this song. The second track is Joe Hill, a cover of an old folk song, sung often by Pete Seeger and Joan Baez separately, based on the 1925 poem written by Alfred Hayes. The song is brilliant and these two tracks are powerful acoustic music that’s really worth their 99 cent price tag.

If you’re a fan of Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave, acoustic music, or Tom Morello in general, you’ll want to add these two songs to your collection. You’ll also be helping out a good cause at the same time. You can purchase the songs here:
