More than three decades after they started playing music around Atlanta, Amy Ray and Emily Saliers sound stronger, surer and more relevant than ever. Sonically, their songs are comfort food, but with lyrics so thoughtful and real, it’s by no means a passive listen. “Shit Kickin'” puts country music’s backwoods bro movement to shame, using a Stonesy strut to electrify stories about Ray’s tomboy childhood: motorbikes, fishing and how “that kudzu covered me like it would set me free from the old ways and the old men.” The duo indulge in introspective nostalgia on “Feel This Way” and the gentle title track, which finds Saliers using her “Nixon Republican” grandmother as a reference point to feel hopeful about the future rather than bitching about the now. “Favorite Flavor” and “K.C. Girl” are equally energized, as is “Change My Heart,” with its blues rock meets paisley underground vibe. As always, the harmonies perform their magic trick: heart-melting here, empowering there. That’s never more true than on “When We Were Writers” (which stuns with melodies that recall both George Harrison and the Girls’ own “Galileo”) and the beautiful, bittersweet “Country Radio,” about being young and gay in s small town: “I want to be that boy/I want to be that girl/I want to know what it’s like to fall in love like most of the rest of the world.” – Shelly Ridenour
