Liner notes: Prepare for liftoff (or vertigo) on this shimmering fusion of visceral, ethereal sounds, featuring acoustic guitars, murmuring synths, and swirling voices.

Behind the music: A member of Sharon Van Etten’s band, the Portland, Oregon, resident has cited everyone from Neil Young to William Faulkner as an influence.

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.
