Mary Gauthier with Special Guest Jaimee Harris

$32.00

Gauthier’s first nine albums presented extraordinary confessional songs, deeply personal,  profoundly emotional pieces ranging from “I Drink,” a blunt accounting of addiction, to “March  11, 1962,” the day she was born — and relinquished to an orphanage — to “Worthy,” in which  the singer finally understands she is deserving of love. Maybe that’s where the confessional  song cycle ends, for she has midwifed these eleven new songs in careful collaboration with  other souls whose struggle is urgent, immediate, and palpable. And none are about her. 

Each song on Rifles and Rosary Beads is a gut punch: deceptively simple and emotionally  complex. From the opening “Soldiering On” (“What saves you in the battle/Can kill you at  home”) to “Bullet Holes in the Sky” (“They thank me for my service/And wave their little  flags/They genuflect on Sundays/And yes, they’d send us back”), to the abject horror of “Iraq,” 

and its quiet depiction of a female mechanic’s rape, each song tells the story of a deeply  wounded veteran.

Darrell Scott, returning from one of Smith’s first retreats, called and told Mary she needed to  participate. “I felt unqualified,” she says. “I didn’t know anything about the military, I was terrified  of fucking it up. I didn’t feel I knew how to be in the presence of that much trauma without being  afraid. But Darrell knew I could do it. Turns out, I was able to sit with the veterans with a sense  of calmness and help them articulate their suffering without fear. I was shocked by that. And I  took to it.”
