with Soft Kill, Wiegedood, portrayal of guilt
With 2018s Devouring Radiant Light (DRL), Skeletonwitch have succeeded wheremany bands have failed: they have reformulated their sound mid-career withdizzyingly triumphant results. Since the bands inception, they have been known forblending and bending metal subgenres. Their collective love of Judas Priest,classic-era Metallica and Immortal has always been worn on their sleeves. However,its the bands blacker leanings that have shifted to the forefront and altered thetenor of the through line on this latest offering.Grasping the blackened thread of White Light that first appeared on their 2016 EP,The Apothic Gloom (the bands first recording with vocalist Adam Clemans),Skeletonwitch has emerged with the eight-song, searing, soaring, burning statementof purpose. DRL demonstrates a band coalescing both compositionally andconceptually. Three of the eight tracks on DRL hover near the seven minute markand a fourth nearly reaches nine minutes. DRL is a band cultivating new ambition.While black metal has always been a recognizable component of the Skeletonwitchsound, DRL sees the band leaning all the way in with epic results. WhereSkeletonwitch previously ran its output through a Second Wave Black Metal filter,DRL incorporates a strong atmospheric influence. Bergtatt-era Ulver and Cascadianblack metal influences are on full display. From ethereal intros to tremolo sky-rideleads, DRL is draped with and adorned in black metals lexicon. But the expansion ofinfluence does not stop there.Nathan Garnette and Scott Hedrick are still co-captaining the dual-guitarstratospheric charge but theyve dramatically expanded their palette. Celestialcrunch that evokes post-metal pioneers, Isis? Check. Gothic doom passages laParadise Lost? Check. High-flying kerfeldt-ian solos slingshotting over mountains ofundulating progressive rhythms? Check. The foundation for this sonic structure is theeffortless bass work of Evan Linger who possesses some of the strongest 4-stringchops of any player in heavy music. Providing requisite room for the guitarmaelstrom, Linger arrives with dazzling yet tasteful runs in just the right places.And then theres vocalist Adam Clemans. Equal parts Tompa Lindberg fury and JacobBannon punk rage, Clemans creative intensity and sense of purpose fueled thebands new musical trajectory. His organic writing lends the band gravitas and hisvocal performance is nothing short of heroic.Like the previous full-length, this album, the bands first full-length in five years, wasrecorded by Converge guitarist and engineering deity Kurt Ballou (High on Fire,Kvelertak, Chelsea Wolfe) at GodCity Studio in Salem, Massachusetts. The bandsrapport with Ballou provided the familiarity necessary to embrace uncharted creativeterritory. Melodeath genre architect Fredrik Nordstrm (Opeth, At the Gates) mixedthe album at Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden. The record was mastered byBrad Boatright of metallic hardcore greats From Ashes Rise at Audiosiege Engineeringin Portland, Oregon.SKELETONWITCH IN THE PRESSSky-wide streaks of atmospheric black metal, neon electric leads, and folds ofcompositional derring-do counter their primeval wallop, its blunt force whittled intosvelter forms.- PitchforkSkeletonwitch is having its Master of Puppets and At the Heart of Winter momentssimultaneously, and it is, if the band will forgive the superlative, absolutelymotherfucking divine[.]- Decibel Magazine[A]ny grief over the band that was has been swallowed up by a triumphant hellfire.- The OnionIf your dedication to heavy music ever begins to waver, clear 45 minutes from yourschedule to let this album restore your conviction.- Metal SucksThis is a bold, new journey for the band.- Metal Injection[Devouring Radiant Light] works well, and there are moments that absolutely shinewith brilliance.- Exclaim!A flood of raw power, Devouring Radiant Light rivals anything that Skeletonwitch hasever done.- New Noise Magazine[O]ne of the boldest and most successful trajectory shifts a metal band has executed inyears.- Angry Metal Guy[DRL] is a high mark for USBM, the band themselves, and certainly one of the topalbums of 2018 every fan should own.- Ghostcult Magazine

Description:

Let It Wander is the second album from Circles Around the Sun, but the quartet agrees that in many ways it feels more like their first.By now, the bands unconventional origin story is well known. Three years ago, guitarist Neal Casal formed the band with keyboardist Adam MacDougall (his bandmate in the Chris Robinson Brotherhood), bassist Dan Horne and drummer Mark Levy to record some Grateful Dead-influenced instrumentals to be played during the set breaks at the Deads Fare Thee Well concerts. That was supposed to be the end of it, Casal says.Instead, there was an album, Interludes for the Dead, followed by several acclaimed live performances. The response was so positive, and the band was having so much fun making music together, that they agreed to keep it going, MacDougall says. The chemistry the four of us had was instant and undeniable. It felt like wed barely scratched the surface of what we could do, which is why we wanted to get back in the studio.It took nearly three years, but Circles Around the Sun usually shortened to CATS finally returned to Castaway 7 Studios in Ventura, California earlier this year. After the long wait, they made the most of their two weeks together, recording and mixing seven new instrumentals, enough to make Let It Wander a double album.The players and the studio were the same, but Horne says the bands approach to the music was completely different. We were chasing a particular sound the first time around, so the process was slightly more structured. For this record, that map was gone, and we were on our own.Embracing their newfound freedom, CATS responded with seven focused performances filled with imaginative musical turns. Horne and Levy form a veritable groove machine that knows intuitively when to tighten up and when to stretch out. They expand and collapse the rhythmic pocket around Casal and MacDougall, who pass melodies back and forth in an elaborate game of musical tag as they take turns adding color and shade from a seemingly endless kaleidoscope of cosmic sounds.Unlike the first album, Levy says there was enough time to go back and add some overdubs to the basic tracks. We tried not to get too crazy building up the sound, but we experimented with different things, like Neal doubling up his guitars on One For Chuck, and Adam creating a Minimoog symphony on Immovable Object. We also had my friend Jeff Franca add percussion to On My Mind and Electric Chair (Dont Sit There), which really added another dimension to those songs.One of the highlights from Let It Wander has to be One For Chuck, which was the first track the band finished. While they were in the studio playing back the song, Casal says Chuck D the charismatic leader of the legendary rap group Public Enemy unexpectedly stopped by. When the track was over, he said: You guys are real, organic musicians. You cant be replaced. Dont ever forget that. It was amazing to get that kind of encouragement from an artist we all love. We asked him to record an intro for the song and he was kind enough to do it. Thats how the song got its name.The other song titles are more enigmatic, but according to the band they do have their own internal logic and sense of humor. Tacoma Narrows started out as the bridge in a different song, so they named it after the Tacoma Narrows Bridge in Washington State. Immovable Object is a reference to the melody that MacDougall plays on the Rhodes electric piano at the start of the song. Even as the chords change around it, the melody line stays the same for the entire song. The ancient city of Halicarnassus was home to a beautiful mausoleum that was named one of the Seven Wonders of the World. The song Halicarnassus is played in 7/8 time, which means there are seven beats in every measure. A little time signature humor to make the music nerds smile, MacDougall jokes.Even if youre not a music nerd, theres plenty to smile about on the new record, from the easy-going groove that keeps On My Mind grounded, to the celestial symphony that sends Ticket To Helix into orbit. More than anything, what you hear on this album is a band growing into its own sound, Casal says.

Description:

Old Time Relijun are the rarest breed of band. In a way, you always know what to expect and yet never have any clue what's going to come next. Old Time Relijun give consistent, sweaty, compulsively danceable performances that never fail to inflame their audience. Their albums are consistently packed with sing-along hits, mixed with sonic experiments and inside jokes. The first Old Time Relijun band practice was on January 1st, 1995 in a dark and moldy basement in Olympia, Washington. While studying ethnomusicology and volunteering for his college radio station, bandleader Arrington de Dionyso was inspired by finding the first Half Japanese album in the station archives. He sought to capture an energy of total musical freedom- primal, discordant, snarling liberation- and disguise it in the basement-rock vernacular known for generations in the rainy small towns of Washington State. Not really knowing how to start a band per se, he enlisted the help of upright bassist Aaron Hartman who provided the roll and the rock that always kept the outer-limits explorations grounded in the firmament of jazz funk sensibilities. For the first few years the band struggled in a local music scene often unwelcoming of new arrivals, but Old Time Relijun stood their ground, and after self-releasing Songbook Vol. I in 1997, they began a long association with Calvin Johnsons K Records. In the year 2000 they released an EP La Sirena de Pecera featuring new versions of their songs in Italian, Spanish and Portuguese. Their fortunes changed when a popular Italian music magazine put them on the cover, prompting the first of numerous European tours that garnered them a ferociously devoted fanbase throughout Italy, France, Scandinavia and elsewhere. After gaining increasing critical acclaim on each tour of the old country, the band came home to corresponding levels of bored indifference from the US Indie Rock Establishment of the time, yet Old Time Relijun persevered, changing lives one show at a time. By truly living in the trenches of the underground music scene Old Time Relijun found converts among the outcasts and lepers of musical society. The middle years of the first decade of the 21st Century found Old Time Relijun relentlessly touring like cyborgs more than half the year, culminating in the Lost Light Trilogy: a body of work integrating poetry, painting, and myth over three albums each incredibly sonically distinct from one another, yet interconnected through countless lyrical and musical threads. The trilogy culminated in the release of 2007s Catharsis in Crisis which begins with the song that became for many fans the pivotal anthem of Old Time Relijuns oeuvre, Indestructible Life. The band kept touring like manic machine monsters for another year, and yet, by the end of 2008 they had seemingly vanished from the public eye with a disappearance as mysteriously unexplainable as their initial arrival. The interim decade between 2008-2018 saw bandleader Arrington de Dionyso deepening his work as sort of a punk ethnomusicologist - playing with some of the worlds most interesting musicians across the U.S., Indonesia, Japan, and most recently, the mountains of Morocco. His global music explorations exhibit a restless spirit of experimentation and collaboration, and in Indonesia in particular he has garnered much recognition for the support he has given to an ever growing music scene that attempts to merge traditional trance music styles with more contemporary noises. He has made dozens of recordings under as many pseudonyms. His mytho-poetic drawings have seen acclaim in high fashion (SAINT LAURENT PARIS Mens Collection 2015) and his paintings hang in galleries from Los Angeles to Paris to Tokyo.As neo-liberal exploitation and fascist dictatorships seem to rise up sucking blood and spreading hatred around the world, the true artists seek soulful meaning while building movements of resistance. There is no better time than now to get the old band back together and Old Time Relijuns new EP See Now and Know finds the reunited group back with unprecedented vigor and a life-embracing madness. There is something magical that happens when a deep seeker straps on a guitar and plays rock n roll. Insatiable, living on the margins, Old Time Relijun makes revolutionary music from a restless energy that can never settle down. This is a band that gets sweaty and smashes the shit out of every single sound you hear.

Welcoming another new addition to your family?  Is your older child excited about becoming a big sibling but not sure what their new title really means? Register now for this awesome Sibling Class. The Sibling Class is designed for children ages 2 and older. Each class we sit together and learn the basics about newborns - what they are wearing when they are born, how babies communicate, and what babies need (diapers, clothes, blankets, love). We talk about the process of labor and birth in G-rated fashion - where moms and dads go to have a baby or what it will be like to have a baby at home, how the baby gets out of mom, what are those funny sounds mom is making, and that mom is OK. Children are encouraged to bring a baby doll or baby-sized stuffed animal to class so they can diaper, clothe, swaddle, and hold the baby. They will learn the important ways they can help when the new baby comes home and learn how to "play" with thier little sibling and show the baby love. Each class includes time to read a book, watch a birth story, and do a craft and ebbs and flows to hold the attention of the various ages in the group. Although this class is primarliy focused on the children, parents will learn tips about integrating the new baby to the mix, including ways to welcome the new baby, how siblings can help with the day-to-day tasks a newborn requires, transitioning to a family of four or more, and how to prepare children for the birth of their new brother or sister.  The class will also have resources on what to expect, the changing family dynamics, challenges with older children such as toilet training and sleep.   The children will create a onesie for the new baby and create a big brother/sister tee shirt for themselves. They will also receive "I'm the Big Brother/Sister" certificate upon completing the class  YOU MAY ALSO LIKE: Childbirth Refresher Class We also offer class bundles:  Childbirth Refresher Class + Welcome Little Baby Sibling Class

Are you interested in writing plays? How does dramatic writing differ from other genres such as fiction and poetry? What are the basic characteristics of dialogue, character, and dramatic action? How do you incorporate stage directions? What are the industry standards for formatting and submitting plays? This one-day introductory workshop is for performers and writers who want to pursue the craft of writing for the stage. Some experience as a writer or performer is helpful, but not required.  The workshop will begin with an interactive demo: the instructor will lead the entire group through the process of crafting an original six-line play. Next, each participant will create their own six-liners, using the skills practiced in the group work. Each writer’s first draft will then be “tested” in a private reading by other participants. After further rewrites, each short play will be presented in a staged reading to the whole group. In the final hour of the workshop, the instructor will share basic industry standards of submitting plays for workshops, festivals, production, and publication.  To register by check instead of via Eventbrite, mail your check to Flatiron Writers Room, LLC, 5 Covington Street, Asheville, NC  28806. You will be registered when we receive your payment, space permitting. Class meets Saturday, May 11, 2019 from 10am-3pm with a lunch break. Cost: $75 if you register by May 1, 2019, $85 after.  This workshop is eligible for our need-based scholarship program, details here.

160.00 Saturday, May 11, 10 - 5 Materials provided include: 1/3 lb silicone mold-making material (enough to make about 5 smallish molds), quick cast resin, a variety of metal-reactive and special effects paints, wire, and jewelry findings for mixed media projects. Metal casting is complicated and expensive. Ceramics require a kiln and other fancy tools. But it’s easy to make reproductions of your favorite found objects and make them look like metal or even raku! In this class, we’ll learn to use a simple 2-part silicone mold making material and quick cast plastic resin to make your own 3D cast elements – perfect for jewelry or for use in your mixed-media art! Bring your favorite found objects and bits of nature, and you’ll learn tips and tricks to make reusable molds that capture intricate detail and then learn to successfully cast them in a lightweight, paintable, sand-able, drillable plastic. Shells, small metal objects, little fossils, and even pine cones work well. Next, I’ll show you how to use reactive metallic paints to imitate the look of copper and bronze, complete with patinas! I’ll also demo how to create a crackled raku-fired look finish. Enough mold-making material is included in the class for you to make molds of 3-5 objects that average 2” square in size – and you’ll have access to enough casting material to make multiple casts from each mold. You’ll go home with your molds and plenty of finished items for use in jewelry and a variety of mixed media art projects – and all the skills to make more! I’ll also cover basic techniques for creating jewelry from your cast pieces and ways of using the items in mixed-media art projects. Note: These are press molds, meaning that the resulting form will be flat on the back. Ideal objects to cast include items that are firm, less than 3" long or wide and have a stable, non-porous surface. For example, it will be easier to cast a shell or acorn than a twig covered with flaking bark. And, it will be probably be easier to cast a twig than a leaf or bit of moss. Due to possible copyright infringement, I recommend against reproducing commercially cast items.

Description:

As the naturalist John Muir wrote, In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks. It is for this reason that musician Tyler Ramsey goes into the woods when he is writing, and why he and his wife have settled on a plot of land many miles outside of the nearest city of Asheville, North Carolina, to raise their young daughter. For Ramsey, living deliberately and with a little space, removed from distractions and the allure of needless consumption, is how he feels most creative and at ease. And while writing For the Morning, his first album since 2011s The Valley Wind, Ramsey tapped into that insulated world where imagination flourishes and sounds for mining are plentiful to create his most realized and regal work yet. The Ramsey home is surrounded by mountains, fields, and trees, and a small river winds through it all. Wild animals live in the familys forest, paying daily visits to sing their own songs. Ramseys hand-built music studio affords him a shelter from the cacophony or a chance to join the chorus, depending on whether or not he has the windows open. The things he does at home are the things he sings about in his songsneither costumed nor fabricatedand in keeping with his deliberate existence, he clarifies that his lifestyle is not a badge to be worn but simply his preference. Spending my time here in North Carolina, swimming in the stream and walking around in the woods, its part of my character as a musician, Ramsey says. We live out in the country, I built my own studio. Out here, you have the ability to take your time and work on things slowly and comfortably. These are reasons why the music I make sounds like it does. For the Morning is filled with instrumentation connecting the listener to this setting: radiant acoustic piano and stark, dexterous guitar fingerpicking; lilting, poignant pedal steel and gentle, babbling beats that mosey rather than rush. We are transplanted to Ramseys woods even before any words can take us there. But, as he reveals, the process that brought the album to life wasnt just one sunny stroll in the pinesa newborn baby and a professional musicians touring schedule create their own challenges. So, it was up to Ramsey to find a balance, and he learned to take advantage of any fleeting moments of stillness whenever possible, while also using his time on the road as its own form of inspiration. He wrote what would become the first song for the record just after the birth of his daughter. As a way of keeping her calm during the long nights he would wear her on his chest in a baby carrier while playing piano, and the gentle, rhythmic chords would lull her to sleep. Of course, the family rooster, Pip, did not help matters, but such is life in the wild. Despite his exhaustion, a melody and words came to Ramsey quickly, written abstractly about coming to terms with his own sleeplessness, and he called the song For the Morning. Id never been a morning person, but I became one because I had to, he says. Our daughter was up all the time, and our rooster starts crying at 4:30 in the morning. Its just our world now, everything starts before the sun comes up. But that shift in my life created a song I was happy with, and the other songs came pretty quickly after that. While at home on the musicians equivalent of paternity leave, Ramsey took to the woods whenever possible, finding inspiration in his familiars as well as in his footsteps. Carrying a notebook and humming guitar lines into a recorder, he worked the songs out viscerally in nature before returning to his studio to record home demos. And oftentimes, once there, his playing would transcendentally transport him back to where hed been. I do find the rhythm of walking helpful for working out song ideas, and the only thing anywhere close to the meditative aspect of hiking for me is playing acoustic guitar, he says. I can sit and play guitar for a couple hours, or go for a hike, and take myself to another world. Some of the images from these songs are visual cues that turn into parts of stories Im trying to tell. When Im singing them on tour, I have that visual in my head; it gets attached to the piece and never really separates. But for as much as he prefers to spend his time at home, his past decade was spent largely away from it. As guitarist for and co-writer with the rock group Band of Horses, Ramsey found himself on the road constantly, forced to make temporary shelters inside of hotel rooms and bus bunks. After ten years with the band it was time for a change, and Ramsey seized the opportunity to pour all of his creative energy into his solo work. It became natural, then, for some of his new material to explore that dynamic of being away and creating a respite wherever possible. Parts of this record were written on the road, back and forth and on airplanes and in hotels while traveling, he says. Some of it comes from the endless touring and that feeling you get after a while of not knowing where you are, and longing for your home and child. The song A Dream of Home is a product of that perspective. On a day off during a Horses tour, Ramsey holed himself up in a hotel room outside of Nashville and began writing about that familiar tug of greener grass on the other side, wondering if following every musicians dream of touring the world to play for huge audiences was actually all it was cracked up to be. A lot of people see the touring life as glamorous, but there are plenty of times where its hard to keep up. It becomes difficult to miss your family that much, and you want to be around your newborn child rather than sitting in a room ten hours away while knowing you wont be home for three more weeks. And so, following his exit from the band and free to follow his own music full-time, Ramsey took an albums worth of demo songs to La La Land studios in Louisville, Kentucky, where he, studio engineer Kevin Ratterman, and Ramseys longtime friend Seth Kauffman, the crack session and touring musician (Jim James, Lana Del Rey, Ray LaMontagne) who fronts the North Carolina band Floating Action, set out to record. The trio fulfilled the majority of all sonic duties during this tracking phase, with Ramseys demos serving as blueprints as they pieced songs together during the first weeklong session. Ramsey, Ratterman, and Kauffman would return to the studio again for another shorter period to flesh out those recordings, and one final day in friend and former Band of Horses bandmate Bill Reynoldss Nashville studio finished the job. The process was complemented by spots from several guest musicians, including Joan Shelley, Thad Cockrell, and Molly Parden singing harmony on various songs, the pedal steel player Russ Paul contributing several solos, and Gareth Liddiard from The Drones on guitar. Ive learned through the years that calling the right person for the right part is so important, Ramsey says. While I love picking up an instrument I dont know how to play, bringing in someone who really knows how to play it can make something far cooler happen. The guests filled these songs out perfectly. For the Morning comes together seamlessly as a cohesive work from a master songwriter and musician. Breaking A Heart joins the aforementioned Dream of Home as a standout, with sublime piano chords and beautiful guitar playing urged along by upbeat drum tracks, Ramseys pristine vocals left hanging in the air like mist. The lament of the former tune is one not uncommon in Ramseys work, and he notes that many of his favorite songshis own or by othersare dotted with sadness. I do gravitate toward sad music, and heartbreak is a part of the songs I write, he says. Writing a song is this huge emotional release and it can be very intense. Theres a lot of melancholy in what I do. Firewood is one such number, a somber song written in suites with a heaviness that gradually lifts as it moves through its parts. Written on guitar, it came out of what was an instrumental piece before Ramsey found its vocal pieces and story while in Rattermans studio. Its a heavy, dark song with a positive twist at the end, Ramsey says. It comes from that feeling of winter and things falling apart and trying to see the light at the end of the tunnel. The song took on a different energy when the trio played it in the studio, and in turn branched out to become the instrumental song Darkest Clouds, which precedes Firewood on the album. I always like to have a long instrumental piece and then a song to come in as its companion, he says. It can create a cool arc and is an interesting way to tie an album together. And yet, bright moments and Ramseys optimistic outlook abound. White Coat is a shining example of the way Ramsey uses visual imagery from his walks in the woods to write. The specific place he mentions in the song (You went out across the river to lay down in the sunlight where it filters through the pines) is an exact spot on his land where he sat while writing it. The song highlights Ramseys skill as a fingerpicker and creates space for his haunting voice to climb higher and higher. Elsewhere, Evening Country is an updated, country music version of the song Evening Kitchen he wrote for the Band of Horses album Infinite Arms and swings with gorgeous harmonies and pedal steel. For the Morning ends the album like a sweet, soothing lullaby, transporting the listenerand, as we know, the singerto a peaceful place of beauty and sanctuary. For Ramsey, the receiver of far more than that for which he has sought, that space is not some rented respite, nor some transient fabrication. It is home, and it is perfect.

with Mothers
You said, Don't go changing.I'll rearrange to let you inand I'll be your historianand you'll be mine.And I'll fill pages of scribbled ink,hoping the words carry meaning.Then one day, the motorcade,covered in flower wreaths,first in a big parade,will come to take one of us awayleaving the other with plenty to read.Lucy Dacus is done thinking small. Two years after her 2016 debut, No Burden, won her unanimous acclaim as one of rock's most promising new voices, Dacus returns on March 2 with Historian, a remarkably assured 10-track statement of intent. It finds her unafraid to take on the big questions the life-or-death reckonings, and the ones that just feel that way. It's a record full of bracing realizations, tearful declarations and moments of hard-won peace, expressed in lyrics that feel destined for countless yearbook quotes and first tattoos. "This is the album I needed to make," says Dacus, who views Historian as her definitive statement as a songwriter and musician. "Everything after this is a bonus."She emphasizes that she does not take her newfound platform as a touring musician for granted. "I have this job where I get to talk to people I don't know every night," she remembers thinking on the long van rides across America to support No Burden. Realizing that she would have a dramatically expanded audience for her second album, she felt an urgent call to make something worthwhile: "The next record should be the thing that's most important to say."The past year, with its electoral disasters and other assorted heartbreaks, has been a rough one for many of us, Dacus included. She found solace in crafting a thoughtful narrative arc for Historian, writing a concept album about cautious optimism in the face of adversity, with thematic links between songs that reveal themselves on repeat listens. "It starts out dark and ends hopeful, but it gets darker in between; it goes to the deepest, darkest, place and then breaks," she explains. "What I'm trying to say throughout the album is that hope survives, even in the face of the worst stuff."Dacus and her band recorded the album in Nashville last March, re-teaming with No Burden producer Collin Pastore, and mixed it a few months later with A-list studio wizard John Congleton. The sound they created, with substantial input from multi-instrumentalist and live guitarist Jacob Blizard, is far richer and fuller than the debut an outward flowering of dynamic, living, breathing rock and roll. Dacus' remarkable sense of melody and composition are the driving force throughout, giving Historian the immersive feel of an album made by an artist in full command of her powers.The album opens with a striking three-track run. First comes "Night Shift," the only breakup song Dacus has ever written: "In five years I hope the songs feel like covers, dedicated to new lovers," she memorably declares. Next is the catchy, upbeat first single "Addictions," inspired in part by the dislocated feeling of life on the road and the lure of familiarity ("Im just calling cause Im used to it/And youll pick up cause youre not a quitter"), followed by "The Shell," a reflection on (and embrace of) creative burnout. There's nothing tentative about this opening sequence. Right away, it's clear that Dacus is on a new level of truth-telling and melodic grace.Another key highlight is track five, "Yours & Mine" "the centerpiece where the whole album hinges in on itself," Dacus says. Using a call-and-response format, she wrestles with the question of how best to participate in a community broken by injustice and fear while staying true to what one believes is right. "It's about realizing your power as a person, and deciding to do the less safe but ultimately more powerful move, which is to move physically forward show up and march and move forward politically," says Dacus, who began writing the song during the 2015 Baltimore Uprising against systemic racism. Historian closes with two stunning songs: "Pillar of Truth," a heartfelt tribute to Dacus' late grandmother, and "Historians," which sums up the album's complex lessons about loss. "From the first song to 'Pillar of Truth,' the message is: You can't avoid these things, so accept them. There's ways to go about it with grace and gratefulness," she says. "Then 'Historians' says that even if you can say that, there's still fear, and loss is terrifying. You still love things, so it's going to hurt. But dark isn't bad. It's good to know that.
