No longer an indie-rock ingenue, Juliana Hatfield now makes smart guitar pop—but she
hasn’t lost her edge. Sweet melodies and mild-mannered vocals aside, her songs offer an unsparing
tour through relationship hell, chronicling the ways lovers mistreat each other, and themselves.
“Get in Line” finds Hatfield trying to cure the pain of lost love with a scorching guitar solo. She
plays the villain on “Tomorrow Never Comes,” sighing “In time, you might forgive me” to delicate
strains of violin. Hatfield brings urgency to her struggles with maturity on “Dirty Dog,” while
“It Should’ve Been You” sets self-loathing to a toe-tapping beat. In Exile Deo will make
listeners feel better about their own problems.

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
