Music to Make To: Servant of Love...
Patty Griffin's album is like that. She dives into rocking tunes that call the listener to stomp their feet and shake their fists, and delivers melodic contemplations of hate crime violence that make your heart break, like in Good and Gone. The album is kissed with happier songs, like Made of the Sun and Shine a Different Way making a bittersweet smile cross your face. One of my favorites from the album is 250,000 Miles; it feels almost like a spiritual chant that hums with electricity and builds into a spiraling frenzy.
