Kathleen Edwards 

When: Thu., June 7 2012
Canadian singer-songwriter Kathleen Edwards has been making records for almost a decade now. They're pleasant, singer-songwriter-troubadour records you'd hear while ordering your medium dark roast and scone in the a.m. Which makes the colorful sounds of her fourth album, Voyageur, all the more surprising and sensational. No real shocker where this new-found interest in textures comes from: After her divorce, Edwards started dating Bon Iver's Justin Vernon, who co-produced the album and brought in Norah Jones and members of Megafaun and Francis and the Lights to help out. The result is one of the year's best records. Lyrically, Voyageur (which came out in January) still mines Edwards' personal life for inspiration – it's a breakup record mostly about the end of her marriage. But musically it's a cornucopia of sounds, a soundscape filled with the dense layering and ghostly frequencies heard on Bon Iver. She's touring with a full band, so expect a show more lively than your usual morning brew. 8 p.m. Tickets: $20.50. –Michael Gallucci
