Dan Tedesco, dKOTA

BRANDON WIDDER
3 pm., Sunday July 14 | Free.
Doug Fir Lounge
830 E Burnside St.
 
[FOLK ROCK] It only takes a quick glance at singer-songwriter Dan Tedesco’s Facebook page to realize he’s a complete sucker for the smiley-face emoticon. But, then again, the Midwesterner’s latest release, Tracks on Fire, is clearly something to smile about. Like the hardships of contemporary American life the album embodies, the stripped-down batch of songs are both disheartening and sanguine, chock-full of Jackson Browne-tinged piano ballads and Western rock’n’roll muscle in the vain of folk-rock troubadours like Neil Young and Paul Simon. Some songs, such as the haunting opener “Burn Down the Barn,” bask in the past as a way of moving forward. Others, like “Lookin’ for a Girl Like You,” find solace in a sea of acoustic guitar and simple backbeat.
