Rev. Keith’s DJ Pick of the Week
The Indigo Girls had etched their place into the American songbook years ago, but it may come as a surprise to them how great their recent catalogue has been. While their early works proved influential from modern greats like Justin Vernon of Bon Iver, they have continued a fairly prolific output, releasing six albums independently since 2007, including the most recent Look Long in 2020.
“Change My Heart” merges the songwriting prowess of folk legends like Joni Mitchell with the belting vocals of soul icons like Aretha Franklin. It’s a message that may feel familiar to churchgoers, but the Indigo Girls frame the feeling of surrendering control and understanding in an incredibly accessible way.
