It’s So Hard to Tell Who’s Going to Love You the Best: a Karen Dalton fanzine & ALBUM DOWNLOAD
“At some point it stopped being about skywriting Karen’s name in fire, or feminism or answering the men who said she was broken or witchy, the critics who thought she screeched. In the end, today, it’s about how I’ve played that album in every apartment I’ve ever had, how Karen sang a couple songs my mom did. How I made mixtapes for boys from the CDs Alice sent. How I stopped being straightedge and never lived anyplace I couldn’t make a meal for friends or put friends up, how I’m still figuring out how a group of people can love each other the best.” – Maired Case, Karen Dalton, Roving Jewel
A love letter to Karen, and a perfect introduction to her work. With contributions from Cynthia Ann Schemmer, Alicia Rodriguez, Jessica Higgins, Mairead Case, Grace Linden, Nick Lynch, Taylor Silk, Jude Lin, Kirstie Millar, Grant McDonald and Jeff Eberly.
Each zine comes with a download code for Bridget Hayden’s album Soil and Song (2019) realeased in tandem with It’s So Hard To Tell… Bridget’s album is also available on tape, along with a copy of the zine here.
