Peter Mulvey»

SILVER LADDER is an auditory shot in the arm from veteran touring songwriter Peter Mulvey. Produced by the indomitable Chuck Prophet, it is a lean, muscular collection of tightly constructed songs, leavening Mulvey’s tendency toward ruminative and yearning acoustic songs with a dose of sharp-witted, punchy rock and roll.

Birds of Chicago»

Jeremy Lindsay’s (JT & the Clouds) fractured country-soul voice and witty ramblings, wrapped in Allison Russell’s (Po’ Girl) silver and gold tones, is a fine thing. You’ll hear echoes of mountain gospel, street corner doo-wop, and classic soul. A full-on folk celebration, the band just finished its Joe Henry-produced album, Real Midnight, which will be available by the time…
