I'M WITH HER
SEE YOU AROUND
$13.99(sale priced)
Sara Watkins (violin), Sarah Jarosz (banjo, mandolin and guitar) and Aoife ODonovan (guitar) all have solo careers in the largely (but not exclusively) unplugged sphere where folk and bluegrass meet jazz, world music and chamber music; Ms. ODonovan has an album due in January. But Im With Her is no casual jam session or songwriters round table. Each song in the trios generous set was meticulously arranged to make the most of the many ways the musicians could blend. Serene understatement was the concerts hallmark; at times, the music was so quiet I could hear the clubs floorboards creaking.Lead vocals revealed distinctive voices: Ms. Watkinss plaintive clarity, Ms. ODonovans tremulous warmth, Ms. Jaroszs hint of bluesiness. But when the three women sang together, their voices became one instrument, sharing every breath. There were two-part and three-part vocal harmonies that could be sweetly ethereal, or as tightly in tandem as country sibling teams like the Everly Brothers, or as hearty as mountain gospel.
CAR SEAT HEADREST
TWIN FANTASY
$14.99(sale priced)
Thanks to its preternaturally complex song structures and close-to-the-bone recounting of sexual awakening, Twin Fantasy has built a devoted following since Will Toledo posted it on Bandcamp in 2011 at the age of 19. Three years after signing with Matador Records, Toledo has re-recorded the album with the aid of his seven-piece band, in effect rectifying the ramshackle musicianship and GarageBand fidelity of his original self-recorded version. While Toledo claims that he always intended to go back and finish Twin Fantasy, that very idea is anathema to what made the album so compelling in the first place. Cloaked in hissing lo-fi distortion and reverb, the original production is sonically and compositionally evocative. Its sound quality acts like fog hanging over the proceedings, approximating the hormone-addled mental state of adolescence. What that means is that even in the places where the songs themselves drag or settle on a dull riff, the original Twin Fantasy still entrances on an atmospheric level.
BRANDI CARLILE
BY THE WAY I FORGIVE YOU
$13.99
Theres an off-handedness to the title of By the Way, I Forgive You, Brandi Carliles sixth albumas though absolution is being offered almost as an afterthought. But thats not the story the music tells. While many of these songs deal with wounds and betrayals, Carlile inhabits a role of poise and command. Throughout, the singer-songwriter sounds resolved to make amends and move on with her life, letting go of regrets and finally letting those old wounds heal. The forgiveness she offers here isnt a reluctant or half-hearted gesture, but something powerful and proactive. Its fitting that these songs of self-assurance are married to the boldest, most robust production of any Carlile album since 2007s T-Bone Burnett-produced The Story, which marries acoustic intimacy to arena-rock grandeur. Produced by Americana mastermind Dave Cobb in tandem with singer-songwriter Shooter Jennings, By the Way, I Forgive You frames Carliles gnarled roots-rock and folksy storytelling in grand orchestral arrangements from the late Paul Buckmaster, the famous conductor and arranger behind masterworks by Elton John, Leonard Cohen, Miles Davis, and the Rolling Stones.
SHANNON & CLAMS
ONION
$14.99(sale priced)
Shannon & the Clams, are known for a diverse sound that incorporates elements of: doo-wop, early rock & roll, classic R&B, garage psych, and surf rock as influences, now releasing their fifth album, Onion. The Oakland-based, indie garage punk quartet is working with producer Dan Auerbach and Easy Eye Sound on this project. Over the last decade, Shannon and her chief collaborator, guitarist Cody Blanchard, have released four albums of 60s-inspired pop on indie labels, toured tirelessly and have gradually solidified a lineup of devoted Bay Area musicians, Nate Mahan on drums and Will Sprott on keyboards. Onion continues the bands strong points with thirteen catchy, well-written songs, full of beautiful harmonies and twangy, fuzzy, instruments, combined with wild, boisterous vocals. Thats the short of it!
