Our critics' picks in new releases

Arkansas transplant to San Francisco lets you into her bedroom jams. The seedbed for the songs is Appalachian balladry, but there are layers of Western dust on the music, and a desolate, end-of-the-continent feel overlaying most of them. Mostly acoustic skeletons, full of 4-track mud and blurred sonic production, the tunes are all the more evocative for their pared-down presentation. They're weird too, full of Roy Orbison lonely falsetto, cowboy-twang electric guitars, and Victorian parlor echoes.
