Laura Stevenson, Field Mouse, Eros & the Eschaton 

When: Sun., April 21, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $10-12

Here's a difficult dare: Try listening to Wheel, the forthcoming third album from New York songwriter Laura Stevenson, without being irrevocably charmed. On these 13 songs, Stevenson moves between various looks: Her tender acoustic tunes suggest Josh Ritter with their wit and narrative candor. Her full-band surges, including the excellent debut single "Runner," hint that Stevenson has matured gracefully and honestly from an adolescent love of wistful pop-punk. Stevenson works through country jostle and crooner showcases on Wheel, too, uniting the variable looks with crisp delivery and fetching tone. Wheel benefits substantially from Stevenson's smart decision to invest in increased production; the spotlight makes her ascendant. With Field Mouse and Eros & the Eschaton. —Grayson Currin
