A mainstay of defiant outsider indie rock since 2007, Alynda Segarra — the artist behind Hurray For The Riff Raff — released their ninth album this year, an earthy record of their life so far titled The Past Is Still Alive. The American-Puerto Rican artist spent their early years riding trains and living in squats before making a splash with folk and country adjacent music that occasionally strays into punk and electronic pop — and if their current record is anything to go by, the present feels very much alive too.
