You may not realize it, but you've met La Neve before: she's the "more fully realized” version of Joey DeFrancesco, guitarist for Downtown Boys, a self-described "a bi, bilingual, political dance sax punk party." La Neve keeps the party going with today's Song of the Day, a synth-pop call to action to cut off the billionaire class.

In a press release, she elaborates:

It’s a call to not only increase the wages for people at the bottom, but to cut off the rich from their already grotesque wealth accumulation. We can’t let extreme wealth continue to destroy our politics and planet.

Following her recent American Sounds EP, La Neve releases a debut solo album this summer.
