You're Gonna Burn
"Like all the best art, this album gives you pause and makes you question where you are, whether in your own life or in what’s around you: the most intimately personal as political."
Some music is so good that it helps you take a mental snapshot of a moment, a forever reminder filled with sound, smells and emotion. Jessi Robertson’s new record, I came from the war, is that kind of album. Every syllable that escapes Robertson’s lips has that longing, that fire, that raw immediacy that allows you to hear and feel her soul.
"I Came from the War is much more than a collection of songs, it is a work of art. The intoxicating soul of Robertson’s album is darkly beautiful and wholly engrossing."
This morning music is drilling in concrete, pavement pounded by feet, car wheels eating up street & the lonely wail of horns misnamed 'beep'
