had 1000 downloads a month!
also, I had to scratch the first artist I planned to play because I
couldn’t get a hold of those mp3s after all. Hopefully the edit
isn’t too weird!
album is a masterpiece. Thomas, who has played with Jon Langford
(hence her connection to Bloodshot Records), is also a classical
musician, plays jazz...pretty much everything. No matter what the
song sounds like, though, Thomas absolutely RIPS on guitar. Her
songs are beautiful, too, relating the life of a queer black person
in the Midwest with skill and grace. The album is confident and
bold and one of the best this year.
