Erin McKeown's 2013 album MANIFESTRA was a musical and political call to action and civic engagement. As a bonus for fans who bought the physical album, Erin set up shop in a historic library in rural western Massachusetts and in one afternoon recorded solo acoustic versions of all 11 album tracks. From an unexpected clap of thunder to the natural echos of marble columns and tile floors, CIVICS whispers where MANIFESTRA shouts. Accompaning CIVICS is a series of three short films documenting the extraordinary space the album was recorded in.
