CD of the Week from Polica

Shulamith is the second album from the Minneapolis-based band Polica.  An offshoot of the Minneapolis collective Gayngs, Polica was formed in 2011 by producer  Ryan Olson and  vocalist Channy Leaneagh.  Leaneagh described the songs the two co-wrote for the new record thusly:  "Drums.  Bass.  Synths.  Me, Women."  The title of the album is a reference to the feminist Shulamith Firestone, who Leaneagh described as her "muse and mentor."
