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

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.

ONE MORE QUICK THING:

Or at least we hope. It’s fall fundraising time, and we’re trying to raise $250,000 to help fund Mother Jones’ journalism during a shorter than normal three-week push.

If you’re reading this, a fundraising pitch at the bottom of an article, you must find our team’s reporting valuable and we hope you’ll consider supporting it with a donation of any amount right now if you can.

It’s really that simple. But if you’d like to read a bit more, our membership lead, Brian Hiatt, has a post for you highlighting some of our newsroom's impressive, impactful work of late—including two big investigations in just one day and covering voting rights the way it needs to be done—that we hope you'll agree is worth supporting.
