You can listen to a full stream of "Shame" one week before it's officially released, today on Noisey!
"Life in America is full of contradictions, and on her new album Shame, Rachel Baiman gets right into it. The titular and first track calls out all the holy rollers and goody-two-shoes: "Any man can own the right to do as he pleases / And any man can walk away from the love he wants to leave / There I'll be left standing with a child and a dream / so I will find my own way to triumphant jubilee." She doesn't back down from that mood throughout the following nine tracks. "Spare me the saving from my unholy life," she asks of listeners on "Let Them Go to Heaven."
