Jeremy Messersmith CD release show tonight

It's been hard to scan a local music blog or website this week without running into a Q&A with Jeremy Messersmith, and for good reason: his second album, The Silver City, which will be released tonight at the Varsity Theater, is a breathtaking work of craftsmanship and heart. Picking up where his delicate and profound debut The Alcatraz Kid left off, The Silver City adds layers of instrumentation and harmonies to Messersmith's signature gentle croon. Head down to the show tonight to learn why critics are calling the Dan Wilson-produced Silver City a "love letter to the Twin Cities" and "perhaps the best local album of the year." With the Owls and Rachel Ries. 18+. $12. 7:30 p.m. (Photo by Steve Cohen.)

Here's a video for "Miracles," recorded a few weeks ago on Messersmith's iPhone:
