“At Night in Dreams”

From White Denim’s Corsicana Lemonade


Liner notes: Indie-rock fizz meets blues-rock swagger on the trio’s fifth studio outing, an exhilarating wave of noise evoking T. Rex’s glam epics.

Behind the music: Singer James Petralli is the son of former pro baseball player Geno Petralli. Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy mixed the entire album and produced two tracks.

Check it out if you like: Spirited eclectics like the White Stripes, Foxygen, and Kurt Vile.

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.
