We gave it an B+

The folk-punk label attached to this 25-year-old Buffalonian isn’t far-fetched. Intricate guitar riffs and wounded-heart poetry explode into finger-bleeding rock. With eight self-produced albums in six years, this is a woman with a lot to say, and on her own terms. The musical purging of an addictive affair, Dilate cycles from the tenderly bitter ”Untouchable Face” to the final hymnlike redemption of ”Joyful Girl.” Ani DiFranco’s songs and voice grab you between the ears and won’t let go. B+
