David Ladon new single ‘Mother Market’ examines the trappings of a free market fundamentalism and neoliberal subjectivity that continues to dominate political and social lives.
David Ladon is a critically-acclaimed and award-winning Children’s Musician with the band Animal Farm who also writes music for grownups.
From 2007-2013, David wrote and performed prolifically in Boston and the Northeast as lead singer and bassist with The Doctors Fox. Moved to Chicago in 2013, here he became a familiar face in the DIY music scene, playing bass in a myriad of projects, including The Bribes, Glad Rags, Catfish & the Dogstars, Paul Brinnel, Mister E Machine, and Clamor & Claw, just to name a few.
In 2019, David headed back to Denver, his hometown in Colorado, where he assembled a stellar lineup of local musicians to perform his solo material.
Recorded as a part of David Ladon’s Masters Thesis in Social and Cultural Foundations in Education, ‘Mother Market’ is the second single he have released as a solo artist, part of a string of songs he is releasing one per month for the remainder of 2020, teaming up with Chicago artist Calie Ramone to create original collages for each song.
With his new work Ladon examines the trappings of a free market fundamentalism and neoliberal subjectivity that continues to dominate political and social lives; so Ladon summarizes the topic: “if 40 million people are unemployed while the stock market soars, something is wrong with our economic system.”
Opened by a 25 seconds orchestral overture, ‘Mother Market’ is a catchy indie rock tune, recalling the 90’s vibes; lead track that gives the title to a 10-track album, with which Ladon aims to engage every listener in a critical and much needed dialogue, about how our lives are mediated by economic logic and discourse, and what impact that may have on our social relationships.
