Lani here with my DJ pick of the week from Lucy Dacus. “My Mother And I” was released in honor of Mother’s Day and Taurus season. It’s the second song from Dacus’ holiday series which will also include songs about Halloween and Christmas.
“Being adopted has encouraged me to consider what mothers pass on through blood and body, and what they impart in the way of socialization and context,” Dacus said in a statement. “We – daughters, and all children – easily inherit the shame and fear of our mothers, but also the pride, self-assurance, and lessons of love. This song focuses on body image and the distinction between the body and the soul, which I can hardly claim to have clarity about to this day.”
