"There is an urgency and a raw vitality and an aggressiveness and rebelliousness in there," said Weiss of the album when we interviewed her last year. "We wanted to spark people's imagination, getting people to feel involved and feel like they can participate with us in the music, and that maybe they can then make music of their own and have the courage to do something that's aggressive or vital or energetic or raw."
