"Hey, if pixie dust is not in your heart," croons Mark Eitzel above a chilly synthesizer drone and a creeping nylon-string guitar, "it becomes the dirt that buries you." Those words come from Don't Be a Stranger, the American Music Club leader's Merge Records debut and one of two essential records the Durham label released this year. A collection of tragicomic portraits built by invective and empathy, Stranger finds Eitzel funneling the poetic and quotidian into songs that shine strange light on simple situations and hanging onto life because it's a subject worth a little more insight. Stranger is a quietly antagonistic record; let Eitzel look you in the eyes when he sings to you his assessment. With Des Ark (going solo) and Kenny Roby. —Grayson Currin
