indigo girls  hollywood


"plenty of revolutions left until we get this thing right." so sings indigo girl
emily saliers in this disc's first cut, "pendulum swinger," an unadulterated
feminist call to arms replete with a radiant chorus, "she is." therein lies the
continued relevence of saliers and her musical partner, amy ray, after 20 years
of recording in that time their industructible idealism, tucked inside their
signature folk pop,has rejuvenated progressive, gay, and female audiophiles
seeking refuge from a socially and politically alienating culture.

save for cameo vocals by pink on ray's punk-pop tune "rock n'roll heaven's
gate," there are no stylistic surprises,on this tenth set. just the same
dedication to harmonies so intuitive that by now they're almost a member of the
band. the girls, now in their early 40's, engage in backward glances and self
assessment here, most poignantly on "lay my head down,"in which saliers sings
about being ensnared at some insufferable shindig:" everyone's tied to their
thing, to their past to their
drink,or the date that they bring.../i want to lay my head down on you."
listeners will find similar contentment with this tender, oak-sturdy release.
