Hooray!! “Sew the City” is out today and you can pick up your copy here or wherever you buy or listen to music.
We are really excited about this album—it was a true labor of love and we had the best time recording it in July at a beautiful old farmhouse in Parsonsfield, Maine. We spent 4 days recording, cooking, watching Blue Planet, and squealing with glee as Ari felt her baby kick in utero for the first time. The album pays tribute to both our grandmothers ("Til I Die" and "Sew the City"); there's a song about a made-up mythological woman ("Nostalgia"); and we even cover a Joni Mitchell song ("The Fiddle and the Drum"). It is an homage to strong, wise women and we hope you love it as much as we loved creating it.
Deep gratitude to everyone who made this possible: Ariel Bernstein, engineer and percussionist extraordinaire; Dan Cardinal for his mastering skills; Stevie Lewis for her incredible artistry; and Kat Waterman for her photography and graphic design.
Tomorrow, tune into WGBH’s Live at the Library with Brian O'Donovan at 4pm to hear us play and talk about songs from the album.
