RIYL: Molly Burch, Rilo Kiley, Waxahatchee
Label: Mama Bird Recording Co.
L.A. singer-songwriter Jenny O. has been putting out music for over a decade, gracing us with two EP’s and two full-lengths in that span of time. Her third record, New Truth, is her first release since 2017, an aptly titled production for our current global situation. Leadoff track God Knows Why begins with a jangly garage groove, but builds into an affectionate harmony-filled instaclassic. Recently, Jenny said she wrote the song after going deaf in one ear and asking the universe the world’s toughest question…”Why?” She continues, saying “the record title has to do with coming to terms with a New Reality–what is and what will be now that things have changed or information has come to light. Feels accurate in this period of adjustment and great sadness.”
