Ani DiFranco shows no signs of stopping with an unbelievable 23rd album, Unprecedented Sh!t. She still has plenty of ire and a voice that must be heard, with our confused world giving a never-ending supply of material for a songwriter of DiFranco’s calibre.

Baby Roe sees an intriguing mix of folk and an industrial-streaked soundscape as DiFranco explores abortion rights – a hugely divisive topic in her native USA. You’ll be thrown off-kilter with Virus, as sonically it drags you around the room like a musical fever dream. More Or Less Free and Boots Of A Soldier sees DiFranco in more stripped-back ‘guitar-picking with raw vocal’ territory.

Unprecedented Sh!t sees DiFranco continue to push boundaries, both musically and lyrically.
