’77 Music Club is back for a third season! In the latest episode, we break down Laura Nyro’s 1968 album Eli and the Thirteenth Confession. We discuss Nyro’s evocative imagery and sense of self, the surprising and enlightening ways we found it connecting to our own experiences as young women in 2018 — particularly examining the similarities and stark differences between second and fourth wave feminism — and of course, musical earworms. For a 50-year-old album recorded and produced by a 20-year-old girl, this prodigious record still remains astonishingly relevant.
Carly and I took ’77 Music Club from our apartment to Bridgeport, CT for a guest session with the always fun and funky and wonderful Chris Frantz on his monthly WPKN radio show. We had a blast playing and talking about some of our favorite tunes that we’ve covered on the pod so far. ICYMI, listen to the archived interview here.
