Daily Distraction: Do 'The Least That You Can Do' with the Kyle Sowashes

In a three-minute rock song, Sowash perfectly encapsulates the frustration of watching those zombie-faces-pressed-against-the-Statehouse-doors protests

On Friday, beloved, long-running indie-rock act the Kyle Sowashes released a new song expressing various pandemic-related sentiments that succinctly and humorously resonate, in a so-sad-it's-funny way, better than just about any song I've heard that attempts to capture the pandemic-frustration zeitgeist.

Witness the first verse and chorus of "The Least That You Can Do":

"Who the hell do you think you are to act this way?/The world's on fire and you said everything's OK/So bring your guns Downtown and tell 'em what to do/Reopen Applebee's and Texas Roadhouse too!/ You can't even do the least that you can do."
