You know the Staple Singers from their R&B, soul, funk, and gospel-fused hits (“Respect Yourself,” “I'll Take You There”), so you’re already familiar with the youngest sibling of the family vocal group, Mavis Staples. She’s got that warm, deep, enveloping vocal quality that feels like a hug. Her sound has gotten some modern polish and bluesy amble over the last few four albums with Jeff Tweedy at the production helm and fruitful collabs with a cast list including Neko Case, Nick Cave, Valerie June, Merrill Garbus, and others. Last year’s If All I Was Was Black was entirely written by Tweedy, who’s admitted it’s a political album. “There is something that feels complicit at this moment in time about not facing what is happening in this country head-on.” Although “We Go High” feels a bit like a grooving lecture, the album is otherwise a breeze.
