pure indigo

their new cd ranks among the indigo girls' finest work
by steve gdula

    there's something about the "we're just like you" attitude of amy ray
and emily saliers that makes the idea of putting the indigo girls on a
pedestal seem a little silly.  they've felt the same growing pains that we
have ("closer to fine"), pursued similar ideals ("hammer and a nail"), and
known the same despair (the epic swamp ophelia cd) as the rest of us.
they've struck common chords with their uncommon talent - creating lyrical
work that has been our mirror one minute, our confessional the next - all
the while pushing the boundaries of their "folk music" tag as they've
swerved down different musical trails and taken us along for the ride.
    the ninth indigo girls album, become you, is as musically and lyrically
honest as ever.  the dozen new tracks take the band back to their acoustic
roots and are split evenly, with six compositions by amy and six by emily.
amy's "moment of forgiveness" rolls on a soulful keyboard line that infuses
the song with gospel fervor.  likewise, her title track, "become you," is
buoyed along by a bright accordion that belies the song's sober message (a
call for intolerant types to do some soul-searching).  emily's "you've got
to show," a sophisticated and memorable melody, is one of her most
accomplished compositions, and "she's saving me" swoons with all the
pleasure and heartache that rushes in with the realization and admission
that you're falling in love.  even after nearly two decades of performing
together, amy and emily have still found new ways for their harmonies to be
more compelling and more complementary that ever ("collecting you").
    become you is the kind of career highlight that is hard for a band to
top.  but we won't be surprised when the indigo girls' next effort is every
bit as good as this.  we expect that from them.  after all, setting and
living up to a standard is what legends do.

hiya,

ok, so the chicago show was awesome!  wonderful.  i was first (yes, first,
not second) in line.  arrived at 9am.  i was right up aganist the stage on
emily's side.  what an awesome night.  i don't remember the exact setlist,
but i do remember: virginia woolf (closed with it instead of our
delivarance!!!), the wood song (cathy spinale, for you!!!), reunion, johnny
rottentale, deconstruction, power of 2, become you, starkville, yield,
galileo, c2f, gone again, gotm, shame on you, collecting you,
chickenman/bitterroot moment of forgiveness... and i'm drawing a blank.
no, i did not write down the setlist this time.  my friend was handed a
copy (from sulli), and the original had devotion on it.  but they also
added a lot.

[...]

:-) karen

hkf's,

no new information, just an update on what info is out
there so far.  the shows appear that they will not be
apart of the series shows at chastain park since the
1st series (out of 2) already goes into july.  if it's
not apart of the series, it will be a ticketmaster
event with much better seats available for the public.
so this is what we want and so far after a few phone
calls, i can only say that things are pointed in that
direction.  here's the concert southern link that
lists the series' shows - don't bother calling, i just
did and they don't know anything.

http://www.atlantaconcerts.com/chastain.asp

i'm assuming it will pop up on tm soon and not on this
website, so i'm just checking both.  that's all folks.

wow! that was the best concert ever!! they played most of my favorites:
vwoolf, wood song, jonnny rotton!!!! they both sounded realy really good.
especially emily, her voice are so crisp, clear, and just beautiful! im so
impressed! is it just me or emilys voice just improved so much last couple
of years?

i dont have the setlist, but heres some stuff about the show:

- --they didnt have an opening band.
- --amy smiled a lot, but not emily. they didnt chat much, either. both
seems to in a hurry to get the songs in.
- --the crowd just went nuts for chickenman/bitterroot. emilys guitar play
was amazing!!!
- --amy come out to sing johnny rotton as the 1st encore. its amazing and
the crowd went nuts also.
- --crowd was talking loudly when amys singing startville. how rude!

they also went on a radio station in the afternoon, and the dj asked them a
series of questions of which all the answers were amy: which of them are
perfectionist/have a sweet tooth/prone to sit on the couch and watch bad
tv...etc

peace,
dorothy

fyi - you can go to

and click on the "click here to listen live" button and hear the station.
so at 5 pm go and listen.  studio c performances include not only interviews
but a couple of songs.  it should be worth listening to.  [...]
