“If I yell it out will I go unheard?” is the searing question that kicks off the title track of Generation Frustration, the uncompromising new collection of songs from progressive roots duo 10 String Symphony.

The record expands their style in an organic and authentic way, with production talents lent by Kris Drever—one third of the folk trio LAU and the 2017 BBC Folk Singer of the year. Generation Frustration features 10 subtly subversive songs that seek to articulate the “helplessness blues” often felt by the Millennial generation with regards to politics, privilege, and the global climate crisis. This division and collision of generations plays out lyrically, but also musically in the push and pull between traditional acoustic and modern sounds—a combination of past and present that engages the listener both emotionally and intellectually. 10 String Symphony is comprised of Rachel Baiman (whose solo debut Shame garnered critical acclaim around the globe) and virtuosic fiddler Christian Sedelmyer (who has performed and recorded with Emmylou Harris, Vince Gill, and The Jerry Douglas Band).
