“Age”

From Lianne La Havas’ Is Your Love Big Enough?

NONESUCH

Liner notes: With her acoustic guitar, London-based La Havas sings of intergenerational romance, cooing, “Is it such a problem if he’s old?/As long as he does whatever he’s told?”

Behind the music: The daughter of Greek and Jamaican parents, La Havas has toured with Bon Iver and worked with fellow up-and-comers Christian Pinchbeck (Elephant), Paloma Faith, and Willy Mason.

Check it out if you like: Witty traditional songwriters like Jaymay, Joni Mitchell, and Nick Lowe.

A BETTER WAY TO DO THIS?

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and we can't afford to come up short. But when a reader recently asked how being a nonprofit makes Mother Jones different from other news organizations, we realized we needed to lay this out better: Because "in absolutely every way" is essentially the answer.

So we tried to explain why your year-end donations are so essential, and we'd like your help refining our pitch about what make Mother Jones valuable and worth reading to you.

We'd also like your support of our journalism with a year-end donation if you can right now—all online gifts will be doubled until we hit our $350,000 goal thanks to an incredibly generous donor's matching gift pledge.
