Be warned: At least some of these CD reviews were written out longhand while I stared at beautiful Pickerel Lake while vacationing in northern Michigan. A good many of them were accompanied by a fairly well-stocked bar. For the Bob Pollard album, that was probably appropriate. I also check out new releases by Mike Stern, Mindy Smith and Peter Mulvey.
I'm once again foregoing my vinyl burn this week and keeping the reviews on the light side. Next week looks to be absolutely packed with titles (a quick count reveals at least 14 discs and a DVD in the stacks that I could cover). This week I check out new CDs from Holly Williams, Candye Kane and Clock Hands Strangle and two reissues from Big Star.
