Music Around Town

Lucinda Williams/Buick 6

When: Mon., Sept. 21, 8 p.m. 2015

Best known for 1998’s Car Wheels on a Gravel Road, an album that still stands as her crowning achievement, singer-songwriter Lucinda Williams is a terrific songwriter whose career is distinguished by just a few releases. She might take years to record an album, but the wait is always worth it. Her latest release, Down Where the Spirit Meets the Bone, is the first to be released on her newly formed label Highway 20 Records. It starts with the dreary folk-blues number "Compassion" but the tempo quickly picks up. "West Memphis" is a grunge-y country rock number that shows off her distinctive sneer. And "Foolishness" could pass as a classic Fleetwood Mac number from the '70s. It's a terrific effort and will undoubtedly make up the bulk of tonight's set. (Niesel)
