WORRIERS, THE: Past Lives: 7”

I’m going to embarrass Lauren here and put in my bid that she’s our Billy Bragg. Whereas Sr. Bragg makes the political personal, Ms. Measure makes the personal universal. She has a theurgical ability of turning the everyday—loss, cracked cups, slow disintegration, the small epiphanies, the fragile-skin bubbles of love—into shiny little beads to contemplate, to gain strength from. So bittersweet, this post-Measure [SA] world we live in; let’s revel in the fact that integrity and honesty never go out of fashion. (I learned a word in this review from the cover of the 7”. Thanks, punk rock.)
