Bonny Doon’s Let There Be Music arrives five years after Longwave, a folk-rock forest watered by twangy guitars. Now, light acoustic pianos and simple, profound songwriting suffuse the trio’s latest album, reflecting their transition from a Detroit-based ensemble to one unfurling between Michigan and New York. “I heard love in the distance calling my name/ Assuring me that everything is the same,” guitarist Bill Lennox croons in “Crooked Creek.” The morning-hued LP captures the collaborative essence of music, including several guest pianists throughout. Anna St. Louis beckons with lush, meadowy resonance, while rock band TBD brings spirited energy to the stage.
