Boomkat Product Review:
An incendiary live recording of one of the most electric protest songs of the Trump era. Trumpeter jamie branch is accompanied by the Fly or Die crew: cellist Lester St. Louis, double bassist Jason Ajemian, and percussionist Chad Taylor.
Recorded in 2020 in Zurich, this loose, politically-charged rendition of jamie branch's 2019 composition "Prayer for Amerikka" doesn't lose any of its power in its European setting. branch's trumpet is barbed over Ajemian and Taylor's rolling rhythm section, and her chilling lyrics have never sounded more relevant. "What is fear, what is family, what is love when it's all memories," she moans. "This is a warning honey, they're coming for you."
