AUDIO: Trixie Mattel – “This Town (Feat. Shakey Graves)”

Milwaukee’s beloved drag queen Trixie Mattel released a new single recently in collaboration with Americana artist Shakey Graves. It’s an acoustic tune about small town blues; you either never settle down or you never come home. Mattel takes the first two verses while Graves has the third, swapping tales of honest feelings before they harmonize so delicately in the chorus. Some grow detached from where they grew up but there’s always a piece of it that lives rent free with you; others never leave and they ponder whether those who left ever look back. Trixie Mattel and Shakey Graves gently lay out the duality with “This Town.”
