Rosanne Cash She Remembers Everything 180g LP (Pink Vinyl)
180g Pink Vinyl LP!
Features "She Remembers Everything" & "Everyone But Me"!
Dreams still beckon in a damaged world, and Rosanne Cash renders them with
fierce grace on She Remembers Everything, a studio recording arriving November
2, 2018 from Blue Note Records. The follow-up to Cash's 2014 release The River &
the Thread, recipient of 3 Grammys including Best Americana Album, the album
offers shimmering pop—with hints of twang and jazz—that could find a home in
almost any year of postwar American music. But the luminescence and bright
production are shot through with a darker vision, trenchant vocals, minor
chords, and bent notes that destabilize the landscape. Familiar yet alien,
Cash's take on being a woman in the world reveals just how much has gone awry.
"There is a woman's real life, complex experiences and layered understanding
in these songs," says Cash. "I could not have written them 10 years
ago—not even close. Time is shorter. I have more to say."
Closing out the four decades Cash has spent as a recording artist, She Remembers
Everything contains echoes of nearly all her previous styles. Listeners familiar
with "Seven Year Ache" or Interiors will recognize the knowing ache of this
record. Those who listened to recordings and live shows in subsequent
years—which have included residencies at the San Francisco Jazz Center, Carnegie
Hall, and the Library of Congress—will likewise find the literary voice that has
framed her more recent music. Cash's time focused on roots music also lends a
classic form to her songwriting that makes it universal and timeless.

"She Remembers Everything is a rich and satisfying banquet. There's nothing
rough and ready – the songs have been carefully sequenced. Nothing palls, and
the array of musical textures is beguiling, each song perfectly framed. The
title track opens with Cash's voice in its lower register, suspended over a
piano motif which recurs and is picked up by the guitar as the song builds, Sam
Phillips's vocal harmony tracking Cash's own. Then it all falls away, a single
cello line intertwining delicately with piano and guitar. Familiar to viewers of
HBO's True Detective for which the song was written, 'My Least Favorite Life'
closes the album. There's nothing pared down about this version, which is
lavishly scored and in which, after a pause, a string quartet has the last word.
It's addictive." - The Arts Desk
"If you follow Rosanne Cash on social media, you know how passionately she
speaks about our turbulent world. Her latest album, She Remembers Everything,
brings us her most topical songwriting to date. Social concerns are built into
her lyrics and compassion is at the forefront of her voice. The album's title
track, co-written and sung with Sam Phillips, describes a woman who's been
broken by the times, exhausted and dazed, but is still aware and still singing
her truth. Her sharp memory holds both a weariness and a threat; mirroring that,
the song's gentle melody is bolstered by an undercurrent of dark bass guitar."

"On She Remembers Everything, Cash explores rage, regret, long term love,
feminism and memory in ways that are detailed enough to feel like they're coming
from her core — and generous enough to let us hear our own hearts and souls in
the sounds." - NPR World Cafe
