[BRIGHT COUNTRY] These days, there isn’t much to say about local songstress Laura Veirs that hasn’t already been sung. She’s put out nine albums since releasing her self-titled debut in 1999, most of those falling under an umbrella of folksy Americana and crisp, pop-leaning country. Her last effort, the terrific Warp and Weft, marked one of her most illustrious to date, flecked with viola and cutting electric chords. Elsewhere, classical guitars wane as Neko Case and My Morning Jacket's Carl Broemel imprint an album that encapsulates the uneasiness of motherhood via breathy vocals and warm, traditional instrumentation. And the graceful slide and brushed, mid-morning shuffle of “Sun Song” never seemed more appropriate than this time of year.
