Hurray for the Riff Raff (aka Alynda Segarra) stopped by Amoeba Music in Hollywood during a recent tour stop in Los Angeles to share what they've been listening to and reading lately, including music by Bessie Smith, The Weather Station, Toots & the Maytals, Bad Bunny, Nina Simone, and more. You can take a look inside here:

LIFE ON EARTH, Hurray for the Riff Raff's Nonesuch debut album, released earlier this year, is a departure for the New Orleans-based Segarra. Its eleven new “nature punk” tracks on the theme of survival are music for a world in flux—songs about thriving, not just surviving, while disaster is happening. For their eighth full-length album, Segarra drew inspiration from The Clash, Beverly Glenn-Copeland, Bad Bunny, and the author of Emergent Strategy, adrienne maree brown. Recorded during the pandemic, Life on Earth was produced by Brad Cook (Waxahatchee, Bon Iver, Kevin Morby). You can get it and hear it here.

Hurray for the Riff Raff heads out on tour as special guest of Bright Eyes starting Thursday. You can see all the currently scheduled dates below; for all the latest, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    Molly Tuttle was on PBS NewsHour to discuss her Nonesuch debut album, Crooked Tree, with her band Golden Highway, and how she got to where she is today. "Few women get named to those greatest all-time guitar-player lists that come out now and then," says host Judy Woodruff.
