Honestly, I haven’t listened to much of Ani DiFranco’s music in the last decade, but as a young woman coming of age in the 1990s I spent enough hours devouring and inhabiting her albums Imperfectly, Like I Said, Out of Range, and Not a Pretty Girl to last a lifetime—literally. DiFranco’s voice—by nature soft, high, and vulnerable—was always her most powerful (and political) weapon, and her aggressive approach to the folky acoustic guitar turned it into both a melodic and percussive instrument. When I listen to her more recent (and much more expansive sounding—is that a tuba I hear?) albums Allergic to Water and Which Side Are You On?, they sound completely foreign, but also deeply familiar. “Every woman has the right to become herself,” said DiFranco, who has released all 20-plus albums on her own independent label, “and do whatever she needs to do.”
