Korby Lenker Album Release feat. Natalie Royal & more 

When: Thu., May 24, 7 p.m. 2012
Price: $5
Lately I’ve been pondering the myriad flavors of aspirational pop music; country’s work-hard, play-hard rural scenes, hip-hop’s high-end flaunting and so on. So I was utterly charmed by the unfussy, unglamorous, down-to-earth reportage in Korby Lenker’s song “My Little Life” from his new Heart of Gold EP. (In case you’re wondering, yes, it does culminate in a Neil Young cover). He performs the springy, sanguine pop tune on ukulele, savoring the ordinariness of the life of a young single guy who isn’t rolling in cash, isn’t mired in nostalgia for the past and isn’t looking to radically overhaul his existence. It’s cleverer than I’m making it sound. But clever is what you can expect from Lenker, a singer-songwriter who covers the broad territory between light, but certainly not lightweight, indie pop and the traditional roots songbook, and offers up concepts like the Wigby video series besides.
