Review: The glowing harmonies of their trio, I’m With Her, are reason enough to listen.

I’m With Her
See You Around
Rounder

There are plenty of reasons to love See You Around, the sparkling collaboration of veteran solo artists Sarah Jarosz, Aoife O’Donovan, and Sara Watkins. The acoustic musicianship is wonderfully virtuosic, yet nicely understated, with plenty of bracing fiddle and mandolin embedded in the textures of the songs. The material is smart, concise, and catchy, with the trio co-writing nearly all the tunes. But the most compelling reason to return to this refreshing album again and again is simply the interplay of the women’s voices, which ebb and flow in glowing harmonies that recapture the exuberant immediacy of people making music together for the pure pleasure of it. While traditionalists will applaud, of course, anybody in need of a quick shot of joy should give a listen.

Fact:

In-depth journalism that investigates the powerful takes real money and is so damn important right now.But it doesn’t take a Mother Jones investigation to know that billionaires and corporations will never fund the type of reporting (like they do politicians) we do that exists to help bring about change. Instead, our mission-driven journalism is made possible by people power, and has been for 46 years now since our founding as a non-profit.

In “TITLE TK” Monica Bauerlein writes about the perilous moment we’re in, and why it’s so important that we raise $325,000 by the time November’s midterms are decided so we can be ready to throw everything we have at the big issues facing the nation no matter what happens.
