Ingrid Michaelson/Neulore 

When: Sun., Aug. 3 2014
Price: $27 ADV, $30 DOS
In cuing up Ingrid’s “Girls Chase Boys” from this year’s Lights Out, two things are immediately clear: She can still write a helluva hook, but over her 12-year career she’s drifted pretty far into pop territory. The new album is fine stuff, but her earlier albums — all bare and riddled with gentle acoustic vibes — dabbled in more interested song structures. Be OK remains the high-water mark of a terrific career amid the indie scene. “Lady in Spain” ranks among her best works (those chords!), kicking around imaginative lyrics that take listeners’ minds for a real trip. For musically edgier fare, check out 2006’s Girls and Boys, which finds Ingrid experimenting with all sorts of great sounds. Listen, her catalog is awesome; don’t sleep on the early LPs. (Sandy)
