[DARKENED ROOTS] As with Lyle Lovett and a number of ’80s singer-songwriters shoehorned between Nashville’s boots and buckles before tuneful narratives of the heartland required registration as either alt- or new-, Mary Chapin Carpenter finds rangy muse chafing against the expectations of a well-heeled audience hardly seeking No Depression credibility or melancholic morbidity from comfort folk. More than a decade and four albums removed from last troubling the charts2012’s Ashes and Roses the latest grimly introspective collection—Carpenter still commands a loyal following despite an increasing reluctance to trade on past hits, emphasizing newer material alongside covers of Tom Waits and Steve Earle.
