Joan Wasser, a.k.a. Joan as Police Woman, has a sultry, slow-burning voice equally suited to soaring soul-influenced flights of drama and brooding, after-midnight cabaret pop. On this collaborative album with fellow multiinstrumentalist and occasional singer Benjamin Lazar Davis, Wasser combines funky rhythms, scratchy electronics, lush melodies and a large dose of raw desire, to striking effect. Simmering tunes like “Satellite” and “Easy Money” reveal a heart wracked by desperate need, while the epic “Overloaded” could rock a stadium with authority. Alternately introspective and celebratory, Let It Be You will add a dash of color to the dreariest day.

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
