The Bros. Landreth

Oct. 10
7 p.m.
Americana, Folk, Singer-Songwriter

‘87 is a worthy follow-up to Let It Lie, the Bros. Landreth’s widely praised, Americana-leaning debut. The Winnipeg quartet again juggles folk, pop, and rock while evoking Jackson Browne (“Vulture Choir”), Little Feat (the funky “Got to Be You”), and the Allmans (“Maryanne,” with dual guitars). More distinctive are spare, somber, world-weary tunes like “Master Plan” and “Salvation Bound,” with lyrics about poisoned love, vulnerability and addiction, etched by soulful vocals and exquisite guitar work, including slide and Dobro. With Mostly Trees.
