“A masterpiece … the definition of beauty.” – Louise Parker, Paste

“You will not be able to stop humming.” – Emily Hinde, No Depression

“A stunning synthesis of folkloric beauty.” – Mike Greenblatt, Aquarian Weekly

Near the start of The Pinkerton Raid’s fourth full-length album, WHERE THE WILDEST SPIRITS FLY, songwriter Jesse James DeConto asks, “Where’s the star to lead us home?” Amid landscapes pigmented with pain, the question is a quest for meaning, in resistance to Camus’ absurdity and the Will-to-Power in the White House. And the answer, over and over again, in a repeating cycle of realistic truth-telling and undeterred hope, is simply this: We sing together.
