Matthew Mayfield, Nick White 

When: Thu., May 26, 9:30 p.m. 2011
Price: $8

Since going solo a few years ago after Moses Mayfield's implosion, Matthew Mayfield's been making spare and generally acoustic folk propelled by his gruff, resonant baritone. The music has a stark, emptied tone that—combined with Mayfield's weary vocals—invokes a Western ghost town. The prolific singer/songwriter released seven EPs in three years before making his full-length debut last month with Now You're Free, where his yearning ache mixes with some electric guitar and modestly richer production. His somber mood and supple, understated playing strike a dramatic pose that mostly feels earnest, but at times (over)reaches for modern-rock poignancy that suggests Staind. With Nick White. —Chris Parker
