Anjimile Chithambo is a Boston-based trans indie singer and songwriter. In September of 2020, Anjimile released his debut album Giver Taker on Father/Daughter Records. A journey of self-reflection, bolstered by Anjimile’s delicate, earthy vocals, the album draws on musical influences ranging from African pop and Sufjan Stevens to a childhood spent in the church—his songwriting exploring themes of faith, reinvention, addiction, and joyful rebirth. In May, Anjimile gave Giver Taker new life with Reunion, which includes expanded orchestral versions of several songs on Giver Taker, featuring musicians like Jay Som, Lomelda, SASAMI, and Justine Bowe (Photocomfort).

The Nonesuch debut of Hurray for the Riff Raff (aka Alynda Segarra), Life on Earth, out February 18, 2022, is a departure for the Bronx-born, New Orleans-based singer/songwriter. Its eleven new “nature punk” tracks on the theme of survival are music for a world in flux—songs about thriving, not just surviving, while disaster is happening.

Tapers notes: First time seeing HFTRR, and I was not disappointed. The opener, Anjimile, was a pleasant surprise as openers are often hit or miss. Definitely check out his stuff, well worth it. As far as HFTRR, Alynda's energy was amazing, and her vocals were spot on, just a great sounding band. As soon as we got to the car, my roommate and I were already talking about wanting to see them next time they were in the area, but it looks like the band is on a bit of a rest after a long tour, so it may be a while. "Hungry Ghost" and "Living in the City" were on the setlist (scan included here), but not played.
