New Tunes at Two and Peak of the Week
  • They were an unlikely, one might say polarizing duo, when their 2007 debut “Raising Sand” took the music world by storm. But their “almost telepathic” connection with each other, and with producer T-Bone Burnett, worked its charm, and they’re back now, 14 years later, with another collection of intriguing arrangements of American music, covering such songwriters as Merle Haggard, Lucinda Williams, Calexico, and Ola Belle Reed.
  • Fans of Harry Nilsson, Todd Rundgren, Dr. John, and Leon Russell among others are poised to dig this great sophomore release from keyboardist/singer/rocker Neal Francis. The songs came to life over the course of a tumultuous year spent living in a (possibly) haunted church in Chicago. The result: a portrait of profound upheaval and weary resilience.
  • Folk, blues, and alt-country from this Ontario singer/songwriter on his third album, in which he addresses love, music, and politics. “When I write a song, I want it to work on many different levels for different people and I try to get to the core of an emotion that a lot of people have experienced, so they feel less alone. I want to make somebody feel like they are connected and not isolated.”
