Now Hear This: Ace Of Cups | Sing Your Dreams

I'm getting caught up on the good albums that have come out lately. Like this one.

THE PRESS RELEASE:Ace of Cups, the pioneering all-women band from the ’60s San Francisco psychedelic scene, are back with Sing Your Dreams! Sing Your Dreams is the stunning new collection of 12 songs and stories and features collaborations with Jackson Browne, Sheila E. and the Escovedo Family, Bakithi Kumalo (whose iconic bass-playing was integral to the sound of Paul Simon’s Graceland), jam-band guitar luminary Steve Kimock, peace activist and counterculture icon Wavy Gravy, Jack Casady (Jefferson Airplane, Hot Tuna) and David Freiberg (Quicksilver Messenger Service, Jefferson Starship).

The Ace of Cups’ longstanding attitude of total creative freedom and a fierce commitment to humanity continue to flow unabated on Sing Your Dreams. Built on a rock-solid foundation of blues and soul, infused with the ageless tendrils of folk melodies and world music rhythms, the new album reveals the group’s innate grasp of the power of song, in whatever forms it might be presented.

The maxim of love and togetherness that is core to Ace of Cups is as strong as ever on this new record. These women are part of a generation for whom social justice was — and still is — a major concern, and in the light of the tension and tumult of recent events, we could all benefit from their courage and positivity.”
