Alynda Segarra of Hurray for the Riff Raff doesn’t make things easy for herself. Her sixth record, The Navigator, takes on the gentrification of the South Bronx, the co-option of Puerto Rican culture, and the necessity of safe spaces for queer youth. That’s a lot of weight to put on a pop record, but she’s a sinuous singer with a solid melodic sense and not just a politically engaged artist with Important Messages to share (that can get old when the words overpower the music). Instead, she fuses styles from girl-group ballads (“Settle”) to full-throated rock en español (“Pa’lante,” i.e., go ahead) into a heady combination of sounds and ideas that don’t always jell perfectly, but they leave no doubt about her courage and conviction.
