THE LOWER 48, JOHN HEART JACKIE,
ALINA HARDIN

(Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi) Where All Maps End, the latest from lovely folk-poppers the Lower 48, is one of the most arrestingly charming records you'll hear all year. With infectious strumming and ear-candy melodies, they make the kind of songs that lodge themselves deep in your heart. NED LANNAMANN
