🎵 Gaslighter (The Chicks)

Listened ‘Gaslighter’: The Chicks After The Fire from NPR

The trio’s interplay is supplemented throughout by keyboard effects and sometimes busy arrangements courtesy of Antonoff, enlisted, evidently, to ensure pop currency — the Chicks play arenas, don’t forget, and clearly have no interest in becoming strictly a nostalgia act. The fit doesn’t feel forced, though neither does it seem completely natural. As a kind of artistic “little brother,” Antonoff preserves the trio’s integrity, building concentrically outward from their soul connection.

I was intrigued by inclusion of Jack Antonoff with this album. It reminds me of a statement he once made:

I want to work with people because they think that they are geniuses, not because I want make the albums that they have already made
