Ep 135: "This I Pledge to Thee"

Whether in the Sandwitches or as Grace Sings Sludge, Grace Cooper has been swinging our hips and stopping us in our tracks for years. And now, boom: a new album on Empty Cellar Records. Christ Mocked & the End of a Relationship (bandcamp) finds Cooper's array of voices capturing the multivalent light chambers of love's prism, both in the throes of it, and in the end.

Episode title is from the Grace Sings Sludge song "The Pledge."
