Some Knives

Austin continues to hide some astonishingly talented singer-songwriters. Count Collin Herring among them, although Some Knives, his fifth disc and first in almost five years, might change that. Herring's songs move between alt.country, power pop, and psychedelia with unusual ease. Produced by Matt Pence of Centro-matic, it's a roller coaster of emotions as well, veering from shivery set-opener "Psychopaths" to the partially cloudy hope of closer "Lights at the End." ***.5
