Milwaukee singer-songwriter Peter Mulvey injects his latest CD, The Knuckleball Suite, with a moody mix of folk, rock, and free-roaming guitar fills. Mulvey honed his skills while busking on the streets of Dublin, Ireland -- surprising, since his husky voice often dips to a whisper. At times, you almost strain to hear it. But Knuckleballs songs fit the tone: atmospheric with a slightly artsy aftertaste. He even makes room for an acoustic version of U2s electroclash The Fly.
