Amy Black Album Release feat. Bonnie Bishop & Will Kimbrough 

When: Thu., Feb. 13, 7 p.m. 2014
Price: free
Although she lays down a swamp-pop groove in “Cat’s in the Kitchen” and lays into a Howlin’ Wolf-style blues in “Old Hurt,” Amy Black sounds comfortable singing middle-of-the-road pop-country-Americana throughout most of her new full-length, This Is Home. Lex Price’s production colors Black’s straightforward vocals with organ, lap steel and guitar, and Black sings with equal facility about busted marriages and the joys of visiting Alabama. With help from guitarists Will Kimbrough and Oliver Wood, This Is Home sounds most interesting when the soul and blues grooves predominate — I like the tough rhythms and electric guitar of “Layin’ It Down,” which seems to be about a doomed relationship. Meanwhile, “Cat’s in the Kitchen” describes what sounds like a pleasant domestic scene, but Black hints that her husband has left, perhaps for good. It may be the strongest song on This Is Home.
