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.

FOLLOW THE MONEY

Corporations and billionaires don’t fund journalism like ours that exists to shake things up. Instead, support from readers allows Mother Jones to call it like it is without fear, favor, or false equivalence.

And right now, a longtime friend of Mother Jones has pledged an incredibly generous gift to inspire—and double—giving from online readers. That's huge! Because you can see that our fall fundraising drive is well behind the $325,000 we need to raise. So if you agree that in-depth, fiercely independent journalism matters right now, please support our work and help us raise the money it takes to keep Mother Jones charging hard. Your gift, and all online donations up to $94,000 total, will be matched and go twice as far—but only until the November 9 deadline.
