In its review of her new album Anarchist Gospel, Coffee For Two writes that Sunny War “deserves to work with… southern sounds, the Delta blues and the mountain country, as much as anyone else, and she is a forceful presence as she does so, with the grinding, glorious album opener ‘Love’s Death Bed’ merely the opening shot. War assembles a hearty crew of like-minded cohorts, including Allison Russell, Chris Pierce, and David Rawlings, but there’s no doubt that she’s the leader here, delivering each song with a resonant purity. Without letting up on the tautness of the material, War sounds relaxed throughout. It’s especially noticeable when the easy confidence of her vocal delivery taps against the whirring grindstone of the music.” Read the full feature here.
