Gracie and Rachel - A Whisper Becomes A Shout

Listen to Gracie and Rachel’s new EP entitled a whisper becomes a shout! The group re-imagined three songs from their album Hello Weakness, You Make Me Strong to create these stripped-down recordings.

The duo shares, “Everything you hear and see from this release is self-recorded, self-produced, self-filmed, self-edited, self-made during a lot of isolated time with our individual selves, and we hope you and your self will now take these songs into your own sphere however you need.”

Ani DiFranco’s new album ‘Revolutionary Love’ out now

Revolutionary Love

Listen to Ani’s new album Revolutionary Love out now.

The transcendent new album from Ani Di Franco, Revolutionary Love, marks the latest proof of one of her most powerful gifts as an artist: a rare ability to give voice to our deepest frustrations and tensions, on both a personal and political level. Produced by Di Franco and recorded mainly in two whirlwind days at Overdub Lane in Durham, Revolutionary Love more than justifies the mad dash behind its making. Revolutionary Love arrives as an instantly transportive selection of songs. Rooted in her poetic lyricism and ever-commanding vocal work, the album unfolds in an understated yet captivating alchemy of folk and soul and lushly textured jazz-pop.

In sculpting that sound, Di Franco and Brad Cook assembled an eclectic lineup of musicians, including percussionist Brevan Hampden (Hiss Golden Messenger, Milton Suggs), horn/flute player Matt Douglas (The Mountain Goats, Josh Ritter), keyboardist Phil Cook (Megafaun, Shouting Matches), drummer Yan Westerlund (Quetico, Mipso) and Di Franco’s longtime touring band Terence Higgins on percussion and Todd Sickafoose on bass.
