Sitch Sessions: Sarah Jarosz, ‘House of Mercy’

Dec 6, 2016


On her latest album, Undercurrent, Sarah Jarosz goes deeper and darker than she ever has before. The result is utterly captivating. And nowhere is it better captured than in the lead track, “House of Mercy,” which Jarosz performed for the BGS on a rooftop in Los Angeles, California. You’d be forgiven for thinking she’s the second coming of Gillian Welch, especially on this tune. “Underneath that shirt you’re wearing, strained muscles and a heart of stone, leather costume like a wild chameleon,” she sings before cutting right to the bone, “You make me want to be alone.”
