Music Review: “Wishing Well” by Screaming Females


TRACK 3

“Wishing Well”

From Screaming Females’ Rose Mountain

DON GIOVANNI

Liner notes: Known for pummeling punk riffs and over-the-top vocals, frontwoman Marissa Paternoster embellishes a surprisingly pretty melody with surf guitar and actual singing.

Behind the music: Fans of Paternoster’s gentler side can find more of it by listening to her solo project, Noun.

Check it out if you like: Ex Hex, Sleater-Kinney, or Julie Ruin.

IT'S TIME TO TALK ABOUT MEDIA BIAS

We believe that journalism needs to stand for something right now. That the press is the enemy of secrecy and corruption. That reporting without a sense of right and wrong only helps liars and propagandists succeed. And that we're in this fight for the long haul.

So we're hoping to raise $30,000 in new monthly donations this fall. Read our argument for journalism that is fair and accurate and stands for something—and join us with a tax-deductible monthly donation (or make a one-time gift) if you agree.
