Wood & Wire, Kalu & the Electric Joint

Wood & Wire’s 2015 sophomore LP, The Coast lifted the local bluegrass quartet to national festival stages. Its much-anticipated new release North of Despair continues the trajectory with some of their best songwriting to date, mandolin and banjo-fired originals sparking a string fury. The band remains at its best on the poignant harmonies of the title track. Local psych-blues breakout Kalu & the Electric Joint fuels up first. – Doug Freeman
