Another Autumn

Modern Harmonic

Like a soft summer breeze, the hazy mid-‘60s lounge pop of New Yorker Ranny Sinclair offers a soothing respite from the modern world. Collecting her four singles plus four previously unreleased tracks, Another Autumn evokes a melancholy cool similar to Astrid Gilberto’s “The Girl from Ipanema,” with Sinclair’s breathy, deceptively flexible voice ranging from the moody girl-group vibe of “With Any Other Girl” to the swingin’ grooves of “A Wonderful Guy.” Adding immense credibility, jazz great Dave Brubeck contributes luminous piano on two tracks. Pour your favorite cocktail and enjoy.

DOES IT FEEL LIKE POLITICS IS AT A BREAKING POINT?

It sure feels that way to me, and here at Mother Jones, we’ve been thinking a lot about what journalism needs to do differently, and how we can have the biggest impact.

We kept coming back to one word: corruption. Democracy and the rule of law being undermined by those with wealth and power for their own gain. So we're launching an ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project to do deep, time-intensive reporting on systemic corruption, and asking the MoJo community to help crowdfund it.

We aim to hire, build a team, and give them the time and space needed to understand how we got here and how we might get out. We want to dig into the forces and decisions that have allowed massive conflicts of interest, influence peddling, and win-at-all-costs politics to flourish.

It's unlike anything we've done, and we have seed funding to get started, but we're looking to raise $500,000 from readers by July when we'll be making key budgeting decisions—and the more resources we have by then, the deeper we can dig. If our plan sounds good to you, please help kickstart it with a tax-deductible donation today.

Thanks for reading—whether or not you can pitch in today, or ever, I'm glad you're with us.
