Shearwater’s 2013 covers LP, Fellow Travelers, serves as a sort of tour chronicle for the local quintet, which reinterprets songs from tour mates into an almost postapocalyptic soundscape. The album commences with “Our Only Sun,” a haunting reworking of a fragment from Jesca Hoop’s “Deeper Devastation,” and she rejoins the Austin outfit here with her new offering, Undress, an elegantly sparse collection that trembles upon her vocal fluctuations and plays as complement to Jonathan Meiburg’s own dramatic vocal range.
