  • The Sheldon :: Indigo Girls
    of self Texas Was Clean is a plucky whispery elegy to lands loved and left behind It became about how a place gets reinvented and defined by your experiences over time says Ray When I was young Texas seemed so far away and remote but now it feels like it is part of me for the lives it s claimed and for the life it s given to me Elizabeth the album s joyful opener takes place in New Orleans with its ghosts and underbelly explains Saliers It s the story of kinship and music and whiskey L il Queenie and the Big Easy whose bloody print is indelible It s denying Facebook and simply allowing someone from your past to remain in all her splendid glory In fact much of this album seems to argue against our culture s obsession with immediate gratification both a musical and lyrical affinity for the journey and not the journey s memento Venturing further north Alberta is about the indelible impressions of a place and its history those that we keep close and those that we leave behind Olympia Inn pays homage to a bus driver named Johnny who called everyone darling and shared his lost loves triumphs and failures late at night as the band toured the UK and Ireland It s a wild rocking ride of a song It s meant to be romp with some swagger and self deprecation thrown in for good measure says Ray Emily experimented with different guitar sounds and vocal approaches to bring her parts to life and then Jordan producer and contributing musician put the organ down at the end and used The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion as an inspiration Like a good book One Lost Day builds to the climactic The Rise of The Black Messiah about two thirds of the way through the album imbuing the whole with a structural integrity inherent to the best storytelling This hard hitting rock song is chilling a battle cry for victims of institutional racism My friend I heard you tell of slavery s end but have you heard of mass incarceration That ol Jim Crow he just keeps getting born with a new hanging rope for the black man s scourge bellows Ray The song was inspired by a letter Ray received about seven years ago from Herman Wallace one of the so called Angola 3 a trio of young black men framed for the murder of a prison guard as punishment for speaking out about the horrifying conditions in the Angola prison in Louisiana Wallace spent decades in solitary confinement before finally receiving compassionate release just days before his death from cancer In his letter he asked Ray to share his story and The Rise of The Black Messiah is Ray s anthemic response a slow building thunderous rock song anchored by Brady Blade s spirited soulful drums On One Lost Day the Girls signature harmonies are in full display rolling recursive hot and capacious
