As you probably are aware, Kelo v. City of New London has generated a ton of legal response: articles, books, cases. It has also rippled out to the broader culture with a movie and a book. At the recent ALI-CLE Eminent Domain conference, for example, we interviewed the producer of "Little Pink House," the forthcoming feature film about the case. (We'll share some soundbites from the interview soon, once we edit the podcast.)
And now, music. A Connecticut group called "Swamp Yankee" has produced an EP, "Kelo v New London," which, in addition to the title track (above), will contain cuts such as "Norwich," "Dirge for Jewett City," and "Shoreline East Rag." Listen to the tracks here, where you can also order the album in cassette (yes, a cassette tape, how hipster), or in digital.
More on the group and the album here ("Swamp Yankee vs. Eminent Domain" from the New Haven Independent.
Thanks to our Connecticut colleague Dwight Merriam for the heads-up.
