“Come Back”

From Teen’s In Limbo


Liner notes: “I’ve held too many hands/I’ve drawn too many blinds,” murmurs Teeny Lieberson, as jittery beats and backing voices reveal growing anxiety on this garage rock-electronica hybrid.

Behind the music: This Brooklyn foursome is led by former Here We Go Magic keyboardist Lieberson and includes her sisters, Lizzie and Katherine, who recorded this haunting debut in a rural Connecticut barn with producer Pete Kember (Panda Bear, MGMT), a.k.a. Sonic Boom.

Check it out if you like: Frankie Rose and the Outs, Grimes, and Suicide.

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.
