[SADDLE CREEK SONGSTRESS] Singer-songwriter Maria Taylor is best known as one half of dream-pop duo Azure Ray, a flagship act of the Omaha record label/music institution Saddle Creek. The Birmingham, Ala.-based musician (who has also sung with Bright Eyes) embarked on a solo career while Azure Ray was on hiatus for much of the aughts, and has released four records under her own name. Her latest, Overlook, bears Saddle Creek’s indie-country brand, but ventures into rock-ier territory on tracks like “Matador,” which features a flailing guitar breakdown. Other songs, such as album denouement “Happenstance,” remind of Azure Ray’s wistfulness, and it’s on these sad, sparse numbers that Taylor’s at her best.
