Charlie Parr, Possessed by Paul James [indoor]

A brilliant pairing of sit-down acoustic carolers so spiritually eruptive they defy that mundane designation singer-songwriter. Charlie Parr, hailing from Spam homeland Austin, Minn., channels pre-war folk with the plunky resonator guitar and hovering vocal moan of last year’s 14th LP Dog. Kerrville schoolteacher Konrad Wert stokes a free-form emotional purge of viola, banjo, guitar, stomping, and closed-eyed wailing to evangelize education as PBPJ. – Kevin Curtin
