Jessye DeSilva returns with a mellow folk song about the dangers of white supremacist culture on “Gallows Tree.” While DeSilva’s Renovations approached similar material with fiery wrath, justified fury at a society that refuses to repent of its sins. But, “Gallows Tree” argues, we need to make space for the everyday pain caused by silencing the past.
