Rocksmith Remastered DLC 10/22/2019 “Indigo Girls”

Hello Rocksmith fans!

This week is all about capos and the brilliant folk rock duo of Atlanta, @Indigo_Girls!

Over the weekend we learned that Galileo (Rites of Passage – 1992) and Power of Two (Swamp Ophelia – 1994) would both be included in this week’s song pack. Today we can confirm (via Xbox NZ) that the third song will be the song they are most known for Closer to Fine (Self Titled – 1989).


Indigo Girls are an American folk rock music duo from Atlanta, Georgia, United States, consisting of Amy Ray and Emily Saliers.[1] The two met in elementary school and began performing together as high school students in Decatur, Georgia, part of the Atlanta metropolitan area. They started performing with the name Indigo Girls as students at Emory University, performing weekly at The Dugout, a bar in Emory Village.

They released a self-produced, full-length record album entitled Strange Fire in 1987, and contracted with a major record company in 1988.[1] After releasing nine albums with major record labels from 1987 through 2007, they have now resumed self-producing albums with their own IG Recordings company.

Outside of working on Indigo Girls–related projects, Ray has released solo albums and founded a non profitorganization that promotes independent musicians, while Saliers is an entrepreneur in the restaurant industry as well as a professional author; she also collaborates with her father, Don Saliers, in performing for special groups and causes. Saliers and Ray are both lesbians and are active in political and environmental causes.

Wikipedia

The Indigo Girls are among the most enduring musical outfits to emerge from the late-’80s female singer/songwriter scene and to a lesser degree the later iteration of the Athens, Georgia scene that birthed R.E.M.Love Tractor, and Widespread Panic. The Grammy-winning duo of Amy Ray and Emily Saliers established a devoted national fan base thanks to early hits such as “Closer to Fine” from their self-titled Epic release in 1988; it was the first of six consecutive gold and/or platinum-certified albums. Their two-women-with-guitars formula may not have been revolutionary on paper, but the combination of two distinct musical personalities and songwriting styles provided tension and an interesting balance. Saliers, hailing from the Joni Mitchell school, boasted a gentler sound but was more compositionally complex, with lyrics that revealed the abstract and spiritual. Ray drew heavily from the singer/songwriter tenets of punk rock, citing influences such as the Jamthe Pretenders, and Hüsker Dü for her more direct, often confessional approach. The Indigo Girls are celebrated almost as much for their political and social activism on such issues as LGBTQ and Native American rights, protecting the environment, and work against the death penalty. With a passionate live show that consciously sought to erase distances between audience and performer, they grew a fan base across U.S. borders into Canada and Europe.

Well that’s certainly a change from the Metal of last week! Are you looking forward to learning these folky acoustic arrangements, or is your capo in your other guitar case? Let us know!

So what happened to the thumbs up/down function . I dont see how you log in. The previews for indigo girls look interesting at least they use different chords and tunings. One day we need to get some Ani Difranco, PJ Harvey and Kim Deal music to have a good female rock representation

I know ‘licensing is hard’, but this is starting to feel like they’ve given up trying to get decent licenses.
