It’s been a good fall for that rural Americana style of music. Though a hard genre to wrap words around, you know it when you hear it. From the classic old school of veteran songsmith Guy Clark’s Somedays the Song Writes You, to the latest direction of Band drummer Levon Helm, who reworks some classics (great version of the Dead’s ‘Tennessee Jed’), on his latest, Electric Dirt. Willie Nelson, the champion of ‘cool country’ joins the Blue Note label for a journey into jazz with American Classic, full of noteworthy covers, including ‘Fly Me To the Moon’, and one for the holidays ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’ with Norah Jones. For the up and coming songwriter set, check out Mindy Smith’s latest, Stupid Love, a reflective venture, exhibiting Smith’s maturity and prowess in exploring the themes of love, both good and bad. Turning tragedy into clarity, Will Hoge rises above a debilitating accident to bring forth The Wreckage, agreeably his strongest material to date. Ease into fall with the contemporary sounds of the South, from the seasoned pros to the latest talent, and come by Central Square for a listen anytime.
