JENNIFER CASTLE at the Great Hall, 10 pm. NXNE. Rating: NNNNN
Jennifer Castle‘s second of two NXNE gigs (and the only featuring her full band) demonstrated why critics are eating up her eerie blues folk sound.
Primarily it’s her distinctive haunting voice, which is even more arresting live. It also helps that her songwriting strikes a perfect balance between understated traditional roots music and edgier droney interludes.
Just when the jamming is getting a little too dissonant, she pulls it back to the song just in the nick of time.
