We're just a couple blocks away from each other. So close yet so far away. That's the story of this whole pandemic exactly exactly so. Let's go back to a couple of years now. When you release your debut album, you guys were on the road for it seems like a year and a half to two years is that? Correct. Yeah, I mean we really just didn't really say many things and It was it ended up being really amazing? It was a long cycle for the first record and and it was. We we saw ourselves go from torn all over the country, if few times in a van and by the end of it, we were actually the last thing we did was. We did a support tour for the lumieres and ultimate got cut a little bit short by Kobe, but I think at the end of it. We feel like this record speaks for what it would be like to put a band through hundreds of shows and see how much they can grow in a year and a half two years so. It was interesting. Well congratulations on the record now. Who did you work on the record with? with this record with Tucker Martine. WHO Like I said has a studio in Oron has done my morning jacket Nico case December soup. Gone Stephen Security just amazing records that you know we had. listen to an loves prior to meeting him and felt like he would just be a great fit, and it really was I mean we got to meet him on our show or earned him. He seems like. Just sort of the right terms of personality, and then his disability said he's got a great year, and we love to kind of push and trying to make weird sounds, and combine that with storytelling and I think it was a really good, really good bit well. The overall sound of the record is absolutely fantastic. It's colorful and it's warm. So congratulations on on on Pol- pulling that together. So, you've assembled the band virtually so I want to get to the first song. The song strangers anything you want to say about that song before we hear it. Yes, so this song actually. The record in your hands, it comes sort of at the end of a three part. Kind of trilogy of Songs All Kinda run together, but this is sort of the release.

Tell me a little bit about before we get to it before how you assembled everybody together because it's very cool, way recorded it for yeah, I mean. For us. It's it's we're all in different places. Obviously, so we kind of have to rely on slowly building the track that actually listened recently to. Interview with. The war on drugs, and I think it's the same sort of same sort of idea you know you start with metronome or a drum machine and and play that then you kinda. Add Arts around ad and and build the song sort of from scratch if you will. Which is a fun way to do it, but I think we're all very excited to someday. Be Back in the same room together as well. I'm sure let's listen to a right now. This is stranger. The quarantine mix here on the world cafe..

"As pure bathing culture, live on KCRW. And also live tonight over the bootleg theater for which will have tickets to give away in a little bits. Sarah and Daniel. Join us. Hello. Hello. Hello. Hey so much for having us. Definitely absolutely of. So as we've talked about, you're the second band to be here live. So we're just understandably still a little giddy about the whole amazing here. I keep forgetting about the, the studio audience. We have so Hello to our, our. So anyway, welcome, welcome. How are you? Great feeling good feeling great. Well, I have to tell you, I have found this album, just totally exhilarating. Well, thank you so much. Thank you. I wonder if that is just your nature because I actually read that, that during the recording of this use split with your record label. And so perhaps had to face time when you really have to keep your head up. Absolutely. Yeah. I think most of all the records, just about staying on the path that you're supposed to be on, you know, perseverance. And we finally, you know, you think as an artist you're supposed to write about those things you find your way to them one way or another. And it found its way to us like, in a way that we never would have expected, you know, so we got to write this really record. Yeah. And have have have fans expressed this same sentiment to you, in different ways just that sort of reaction. I mean for me it feels like skydiving, it's just like triumphant. Thank you. I mean, I think fans over the years have told us a lot that our music has helped them through hard times, and that's the most meaningful thing to hear from people. So, yeah, I mean, I feel like it's also feels really new to like people are still discovering this record. And so it's been really fun to talk to people chose and have them tell us their favorite songs, and it's really been fun. Daniel talk about the, the, the music of it's and your relationship with the instruments because I was reading that you, you kind of give each instruments a personality sorts. Oh, yeah. Totally. You know, playing live. We, we love playing with musicians because it's so fun and dynamic. But I think there's something about being in the studio where you can make up your own world. If you're by yourself and for me since I end up playing a lot of the instruments in order to not kind of almost get schizophrenic. I'll like think of them as all different people like one of the drummer's on, on past name was old man, stall, which basically was just this one drum machine. New is like the funky Stromer that we had on the whole record. Or like the bass player is like kind of based on this, like guy from Scotland who wears purple pants and. There's a guy named Guthrie who plays, most of the lead guitars on the record. Yeah. I don't know. It helps it helps to it stays really fun that way. And you don't like double think about anything just kinda start making stuff. So who are you playing this morning? I'm kind of like across between Guthrie and I think old man's Tom lives in me all the time. To. Well, I will say that something that I'm drawn to in your music. Is it feels familiar in, in different ways than I can't quite but my finger on it? I kind of generalize and say, sort of eighties. Pop rock in or Fleetwood MAC, it's I don't I don't even know. We like all those. Definitely do. But how, how do you express that do have these kind of set points of reference between the two between the two of you? Sarah's looking at me she wants me to. I don't know what to say. I mean we we do love eighties music. We also really love sixties music. I mean really love listened to Motown the Beatles all the time. And like we just like different things individually to like, Sarah loves listening to, like a lot of ninety in I listened to like a lot of British music from the eighties. So, and I think either one of us made a solo record wouldn't sound like bathing culture. But when we bring it together, it creates like what the band. Sounds like sure. So this is the first time I've met you and the first time you've been to KCRW, but we have a bunch of mutual friends, I have come to find you worked with Tucker Martine this record. What was that, like amazing? Tucker is an incredible. Not only just an incredible person. He's so kind and loving, but he's also we spent a lot of time on this record are two. Previous records were basically mixed in under two we recorded and mixed in two weeks. And we worked on this. We worked. Might pass basically, over the course of the second half of twenty seventeen and probably spent a total about six weeks on it and Tucker was just so he just any idea he was down for, and he was down to see it all the way through even if you know, even if we weren't gonna keep it he was like, let's try. And even if you're like, oh, maybe that's not what we want. He's like let's see through, and let's take the time to work on it. So that was a new for us. And I feel like we're so proud of this record. And a lot of it is because of Tucker. I mean he really I feel like you really let us find ourselves in it. Can you say that you're you feel that it's your best work yet as a result? Yeah. I think especially in the studio. It's our best work are artistically. I think I wouldn't double guess myself and I think we've always been writing the music. We wanted to write. But I think in terms of making record we. Yeah. We did a better job on this one. It was interesting to hear just now advocate live as opposed to the, the studio version, because it's, it's more of a measured performance live. It's, it's not quite as unbridled interesting. I mean that's just my. Yeah. I think we're still like one of the things about this tours were kind of finally getting a chance to play these songs out and play live. And it's fun to figure out, you know..

"That performing keep a light on from upcoming record love inevitable that was gen- grain joined by her husband and lead well on the piano and the Flugel horn at the same time. Unbelievable. Pretty good by not bad. Jan come over and say alot, you get a second there. I feel like I may have said something I may have presumed something that wasn't wasn't true. Because I said you worked not with Danny this record, but you work for Tucker Martine, and I said, I'm sure it felt like a risk did it. Yeah. It did. I was like who is anyway. Luckily, he's the greatest so they worked out really, well, what made it why did you want to do take a risk that? I think that, you know, Dan, and I have I made a lot of records together. And I've loved those experiences so much. I think it kinda got to a point where we were we could like sit down in the studio and just kind of like, you know, it was getting a little bit easy. You know? And so I look forward to going back to that experience with him. But I felt like especially before we make this new step is into parenthood. I wanted to go out on my own almost kind of like doing know how to make a record without then lead. Well, and yeah, so. Yeah. So I went out to try something new and it just felt like everything about the experiences. Just so new for me, and I just really revelled in that new absolutely. So it was is that important to you like, I don't know if you've ever talked about this is that important to you to feel like taking risks in your kick. Yeah. Yeah. I just feel like for me one of the greatest gift for making art is when you feel like you're taking a risk like, you know, if you align it to painting like throw some paint down page, and and you're you're like, I don't know what's going to happen. That's kind of like the beauty of it for me. I had Linda period on the show yesterday like incredible songwriter producer. And she said that I said, but what if you fail like if these days it's so much riskier to fail. You know, what I mean, totally? Yes, if you if you shag it up as we say her go for right? And she said, well, you know, you're not gonna fail. If you're doing something that's true to you. Let's get remember that can you relate to that? I think so. And I think that failure is a part of life, and we learn from our failures as well. And that's kind of what I try to the way I'm trying to look at life too. I gotta tell you. I'm I'm sort of selfishly happy, you're here. In addition to hearing music, but I'm also I still haven't met your your kid yet. I still haven't been can't believe he's so close by still have Gaza. So you and Danny welcomes your first son into the world gusts. Yes. Right. Congratulations so much. How's it going? How's motherhood motherhood is amazing? The transition to motherhood is like crazy and emotional and hard, and like everything and touring on top of that is it's a large plate that. I've. Put me, but I'm I'm feeling really grateful everyday like I just look at him. And I just can't believe that he's here. He's so cute. And he's so good. And I he has such as we spirit obsessed beautiful baby. I I if you're listening to this right now, you may wonder these these are these are personal questions to ask somebody. But I know you're in detail. You're talking to imagine really. What are you talking about? What state the record? Did you Danny find out you were going to have a kid? Well, getting to have the kid was such a long processes, you know, you know, folks, listen to this may not no that's very true took me about six years to get to get Gus. So a lotta times I was touring records and worrying about getting pregnant felt like for years. I is this flight making me not pregnant like just so many pressures that was putting myself 'cause it was it had taken such a long time and like during that time trying to be really grounded until and meditating and all the good things. He should be doing every day anyway. But there was pressure on me. And eventually we decided to try several methods of of fertility treatments like we did a couple rounds. I you I made friends with all the staff at the art clinic and health acts. We love them so much those didn't work. I did around of I've with two embryos had an early miscarriage that was devastating. But like actually for the way that I healed from that party. -cially was by eating a huge loaf of bread called Newfoundland bread with just like a bunch of butter and just ate it for today's eating the coach. And that was like I called the clinic. I was like let's do it again. And and and we we did the the the magical cycle that that resulted in descrient lead. Well, it's it's so nice to hear you talk about this. But it was I mean you, and I I should point out that you, and I had like Danny talked about this a little bit when we would see one another kind of keeping up to date. And. But I was surprised a little bit. When I thought you wrote this essay for CBC, we kind of talked about this, and you talked about for treatment. Did you talked about fertility issues that the two of you guys went through? Why are you talking about this? I mean the best way possible. Why did you want to share the story? I I mean, I think as a writer for me, it's always been a thanks as a kid like once I go through something. I think part of the healing process. Part of the learning experience for me is to be able to share that like whether it's in songwriting or whether it's just like trying to write something that's real so people couldn't you'd be like, oh, yeah. I really to that are going through that too. Or I'm thinking about it, or I'm had I have pain because of this and just trying to, you know, share my variances in the hopes that it will there be there stigma around for Tony treatments for sure. And you know, why not use my what voice I have to to help, you know, alleviate some of that. So what it means to you like when you share this Longo Christmas time Christmas day out. Oh my goodness. I remember I remember that. And I went on the east coast Twitter like I was on Twitter, which is largely. People from health X, and and all that kind of stuff every people across the country where posting I'm so happy you wrote this. I went through something like this too. And that which is publicly I can't imagine the not getting from people about about they had gone nuts. Love notes. So I mean, what does that mean to you? It was great. I had to take a couple of days away before I could look at them because there was a lot of them. And I feels good. Yeah. I feel proud to. I feel really proud of Gus. He had a big journey to get here. And I feel proud of every woman and every every parent or father anyone who's trying to create a family, whatever that family looks like to them. You know, it's it's a big. It's a big deal last question. This is this about in some ways giving people support or giving people a narrative that maybe you weren't getting enough of when you were going through this as well. I think so I think I didn't really know where to turn. I mean, I was I was doing all the like internet searches of how many healthy vitamins can I take two and how much acupuncture and osteopathy l think those things are all wonderful. But yeah, I didn't know I just needed. I don't know. What I? Yeah. I just this is the path. I took an if it helps anybody else. That's great. I'm so I'm so glad that I just so incredibly, hyper you, guys any makes both of you an unbelievable amount. And I'm so happy. I can't wait to meet little cost. I went in to Danny tell you that. I I went into a lotta him this morning. And this is what a great care. And didn't notice the baby didn't see the baby floor. Great. Great move, Tom. So busy so quick. Oh, yeah. That's probably oh, you're so sweet. You wrote something interesting your bio for love and edible. You wrote some of the Qatar songs wrote in this little window of a few days where I felt this kind of energy around me. I didn't know I was pregnant yet. And those were those songs those were that was win though songs were written that must be so meaningful to play them now too. Yeah. Absolutely. I can know when I'm singing performing on stage. I usually I pay different things. Singing, and sometimes I noticed now I picked your guesses face. And it's such a nice feeling victor's face is your is your music is the way you're approaching your career is pushing music at all changed. I don't know yet. I'm not sure I I'm not sure. Yeah. I know that right now things are I've been through so much. He was born like the, you know, motion physical stuff of having a baby is huge. And I'm processing all that still wild kind of putting the record out. I know that I know that there's a place for me to, you know, create something out of what's going through right now. And but but but yeah, back to what you were saying before I did write those always in the special window because I didn't know I didn't know if I was pregnant yet. I did the treatments. I was waiting for my blood test. And so this whole album came from a songs that I wrote while I was either like super exhausted from being pregnant or just kinda wondering if it was going to work out, and that was another risk to like the record to make Tucker in July. And I was like, I really hope this IVF works. I don't know what I'm doing. Anyway, that was a very roundabout. No. You know, when I when I look at people like you Caroline Brooks. From the good lovely chief, his good friend. Who who writes impose an awful lot about being a mom on the road? Yeah. This is support network in Canada that I've felt really amazing felt so connected to with with with her with Caroline and with Jill barber and with Amy Milan who's been amazing support to me as well through the beginning stages of of motherhood, and and other people as well..

"Let's say I have my own stories, and I don't feel the specifics are as important as the fact that the story is believed and valued just like every other woman, I know who has these stories and. The trauma. I think childhood trauma any trauma. It rearranges you in a way that you start acting in the world differently. And I started thinking how long does it take to get out of that? How long does it take to become yourself? You know in your sixth decade, are you still working on this you still crawling out from it? Are you still walking through the world like a thief trying to steal a little moment of joy, or you know, some attention for yourself. Do you have an answer for that? Now. 'cause I'd love to hear it. I don't have the answer. And in fact, I liked that songs don't provide answers just provoke questions. Did did the feeling you're talking about did that precede the Cavanaugh hearings? Oh, yeah. Definitely. I mean, I I mean the expression of that politically that go back to the election. Oh my God. Yes. I didn't stop crying for ten days after the election and I have four daughters and son and my daughters were devastated in one of them said to me, she called up crying the night of the election. And she said, I feel like I don't matter. And that pierced my heart whenever I think of that sentence. I just breaks my heart and at the same time our son was writing his college filling out his essay for college. And one of the questions was what would you change in this world, if you could change one thing, and he wrote sexism that just came out of the blue we didn't expect that he said because I have a mom and four sisters, and I see how it hurts them. Those are the people we hope rule the world. No. Young men who were that syncing or young women or young women of a growing up there were and I know you like these artists who who looked at albums that way, like Joni Mitchell, or or Linda Ronstadt, but they've thought very much in terms of albums. Do you think still in terms of albums even in this age? Oh, yeah. And the time, and you know, focus that we spent on sequencing an album because it it is an album to us. You know, it's like what is track three? How are we gonna start at? How are we going to end it? And even if there's not a theme there's there is a melodic or a narrative arc to it. That makes sense. I'm actually not very good at sequencing John is much better. Tucker Martine who is the other producer on this album half the album was produced by him half by John? He is also good at sequencing. So I kind of left that to to the gentleman, but you're right. Joni Mitchell that. Blue was really really important record to me up to that point. I mean, I was young but up to that point. I kind of just thought men were songwriters. I didn't realize that a woman could be a songwriter, and that her inner life was legitimate, raw material to create songs music art and put it out in a public forum that was that was a startling and revelatory moment for me, then we'll get to the other songs in a minute. But are all the songs confessional in that way? Or they all parts of you. I don't like that word confessional. Because it makes it seem like a diary, and there is an an art and a craft to songwriting and poetic license and a rhyme scheme in a melody and backbeat in all of those things staff to work together to make a song work at the same time. Yeah. There's. Nothing outside of myself on this album. Not nothing. It's also I regret using the word. It's a word that's used with women's music. Absolutely. You don't hear about men's confessional health? That's because we have nothing to say. That's so true. Well with that we try another song that's next try being the operative word. We'll see. Which one are we doing? Let's do let's do Jerusalem. But I need just hold the whole the binary code near for second. I gotta retune.

"Cafe the the first time I heard that that song. And the first time I read the title of the record. I thought it sounds like a threat it's kind of on a knife's edge. It's a threat, and it's also common. Like in some ways, it's very sexy. I'm going to remember everything about you. And in other ways, it's threat like don't mistrust my memory. I remember everything right? I started thinking about memory in what a burden it would be to remember everything about your life. Where you were on your twelfth birthday the first day of tenth grade every person you've met, you know, every flu you had. And then in another way, I thought you know, it would. It's a comfort thing about it being in some kind of psychic library that everything that's happened to us there that comforts me away. I want to play a little bit of a song that you co wrote with your husband, and you mentioned John Leventhal who co produced the album with Tucker Martine as the sun the undiscovered country that that sort of explorers. I guess we'll literally explores in the league's the undiscovered country between a woman and a man tell me a little bit about exploring that dynamic with your husband as raider. Well, I wrote the lyrics, and I labored over these lyrics for months and months, and I wrote four or five different melodies to it. And I just couldn't find it. I knew they weren't right? And so I asked John to write the music, and he had it immediately, which you know is throw but the song it takes a journey. You know, it starts in the past. All those who go before us. And then to are the future all those who follow after our children. But in the center of all of that is the place where we have questions at won't be answered. And this woman who's a savior? And I don't mean a religious savior. Or is it a particular person, you have in mind or sort of a it's a lot of women. I have in mind, it's all the women who take risks and used their voices in public in our attacked and assaulted for it and. Still are courageous. And they do it for all of us. Yeah. Okay. Well, let's listen to let's us into the undiscovered country. Go. The mothers king shakes. Full dust up in. If you. You can. From the track. Good bum. It's mad. Bye. The goals. No, they. Shining. And some just. In a. So. Thanks..

"Cash is new album. She remembers everything Roseanne welcome back to world. Cafe. Hi, tania. Thank you. Hi. So one thing that really strikes me on that song in particular. But on the whole album in general is sort of the the round -ness of your voice. I take that as a compliment. Thank you. I'm glad well, it's meant that way. It's just I I don't know why this was like the first thing that I wanted to ask you about. But I'm burning to ask you about it because it's it's like recorded in three dimensions. It feels like. So is there something that you've learned over the years as a singer that that allowed it to sound the way that it does on? She remembers everything. Two parts to that question. I think partly my voice is aging it's aging fairly. Well, I like how it's aging, and you know, Rachel said, you're better singer at fifty than you are twenty-five because your life shows up in your voice, and I truly believe that. And the other part is the Sonics have always been really important to me an unfortunate to work with on this record with a couple of producers, Tucker Martine, and John Leventhal who have. Very deep listening skills as far as the specifics of Sonics and recording. So I was the beneficiary of that on your last record on the river and the thread to to make it came out about five years ago. This it you made it by taking this sort of physical road trip to trace the places where you have roots in Tennessee, and Arkansas Louisiana and hearing your latest album hearing, she remembers everything it sorta sounds like a road trip through your own internal highways like going on on an inside road trip. Did it like that description? That's fair to say like if it felt that way if it felt that way to you. Yeah. Well, going back. I don't have any roots in Louisiana that I know about, but okay, Tennessee and Arkansas Yam, but and in Virginia as well, which shows up in the them, but the south is kind of this mystical place this record write it was plumbing. Some of my own depths, and I love men very much. But I've just felt like I just didn't wanna hear. Any male narratives on this record? I just you know, I just wanted so badly to tell a woman story my story, my experiences, my hope my rage. My love my madness. And however particular that is not tried to tilt it. So that it fits some idea of what socially acceptable, or what the male narrative is. It's any sense at all that makes total sense. And I'm already thinking of like so many examples of of songs on the record that sound like what you've just said the convenience about everyone. But me as an example of of of that, and what what a what a woman goes through. But, but I I wanna ask you like there's an urgency to what you've just said that makes me think that you do you feel like you've done that before in in your career? Does it feel like a new thing to say to say this? No, I mean, I have done it before my career. No, it doesn't feel new it feels more urgent as you said. That's a very good word for it. I have more to say I have less time to say at this point in my life. I have four daughters and a son. And when my son went away to college last year, there was one of the questions on his college essay. When he was applying was what what is the one thing in this world, you would change if you could. Any wrote sexism, and I didn't see that coming. It was powerful. And I started thinking a lot about my daughter's when I was writing the songs on this record. And everything that's happened in the last few years and how they feel devalued. They tell me they feel devalued and it's heartbreaking. So I kind of assimilated that into my own story my own history. I mean when I was first starting to make records, I didn't think about. Gender separation. I I never liked the idea of being called a woman songwriter or a woman singer, and I didn't make sense to me I thought well how why would you separate songwriters by gendered?.
