HURRAY FOR THE RIFF RAFF

Diva (UK) - - Culture | Music Reviews -

The Nav­i­ga­tor (ATO) Fans who’ve been with HFTRR since their mid­noughties salad days have been re­warded for that fi­delity. Bronx-born founder/front­woman Alynda Seg­gara has bloomed with each suc­ces­sive al­bum, from lo-fi hobo folk­ster to game-chang­ing trou­ba­dour, serv­ing up queer, woke, gor­geous Amer­i­cana. The Nav­i­ga­tor – part-bi­og­ra­phy, part-su­per­heroine con­cept al­bum – is Seg­gara’s best yet: a rous­ing and pre­sciently politi­cised folk-rock opus, threaded with sub­way doo-wop and Nuy­or­i­can grooves; the post-trump al­bum 2017 needs.
