For curiosity's sake, or perhaps for marketing purposes, someone should set up an exit poll at Duke Gardens' gate when this show ends: How many attendees who frequent Duke's Music in the Gardens series for a nice midweek summer picnic go home tonight with a new favorite? Such is the power and charm of Skylar Gudasz, the singer-songwriter responsible for Oleander, the year's best local album so far and a multivalent set of equivocating love songs. Gudasz expresses a certain admiration and longing for love, but she has her share of healthy doubts, too—about permanence and faithfulness, about happiness and honesty. Given flesh by an all-star cast assembled by producer Chris Stamey, these songs are as complex as the subjects they explore. And at the center of it all is Gudasz's exquisite voice, as capable of tempest-like ire as it is confidant-like comfort. If there is no poll, just vote by grabbing a copy of Oleander on the way out. —Grayson Haver Currin
