Ani DiFranco has never been afraid to take chances. DiFranco's new disc, Allergic To Water, is another bold accomplishment and its music is her most subtle. Set for an October 14 release on DiFranco's groundbreaking Righteous Babe Records label, Allergic To Water was recorded at her Victorian home in New Orleans and at a larger studio in an old church.
I was only a kid when Ani DiFranco first exploded onto the indie folk scene, but by the time I was in high school, she was as relevant and powerful as ever to me as a budding female guitarist and singer. Recently, when I heard that she would be touring through a nearby city, I jumped at the opportunity to see her live for the first time. Opening for her September 27th performance at Durham’s Carolina Theater was Pearl and the Beard, a three-piece indie folk band based out of Brooklyn.
You could call Ani DiFranco a political activist. A poet. A free spirit. A lover. A fighter. And a mom. All of these facets have contributed their distinct ingredients to her new album, ¿Which Side Are You On? The result? A tasty concoction that ranges from goose-bump inducing love songs to rousing anthems.
