Outside Child is the debut solo album from Allison Russell, but she is not new to the music scene. One-half of folk duo Birds of Chicago (with her husban JT Nero), Russell was also a member of the supergroup, Our Native Daughters, alongside Rhiannon Giddens, Leyla McCalla and Amythyst Kiah.

Listening to our Album of the Week, Peace in Trouble, you might get the feeling that you have somehow time-traveled to the 1930s and are walking into a speakeasywhile taking a drag off a really long cigarette. But alas, you're here, in the whole new world that is 2021, likely without that long cigarette. Sunday Wilde has consistently proved the ability to make you feel like you're in another time. Her sound is fully retro, while not venturing into kitschy territory.
