Actress Tamara Lindeman’s musical project, the Weather Station, isn’t new, and 2015’s Loyalty wasn’t her first album, but it gave the Toronto artist a foothold in the States. It helps that she has such an arresting voice. The intimacy of folk and the finesse of jazz (delicate guitar figures, hushed drums) provide sympathetic accompaniment for her supple alto. There’s a little Sandy Denny here, a little Joni Mitchell there, but she makes greater use of space, more like the ambient cosmology of Cowboy Junkies than the slow-motion wooze of Mazzy Star (the ghost of Glen Campbell’s “Gentle on My Mind” also haunts the new record). Four albums into her career, singer and autoharp player Basia Bulat draws from similar genres for her lush, expansive sound. KATHY FENNESSY
