For many folks, the turn of the calendar from one year to the next is prime time to reflect on life, assess the present, and cast an eye to the future. I'll submit that All You Pretty Vandals, the new album from local Americana band Casey Neill and the Norway Rats, is an excellent soundtrack for such an endeavor. Not because Neill—a respected and well-connected veteran of the Portland music scene—is in a reflective mood on the record, but simply because of its sound. Vandals is trademark Neill: rootsy and gently rockin', with regular excursions into Celtic and Irish sounds. Its easygoing charm and natural warmth feels soothing and necessary, especially in the deepest, grayest part of winter. BEN SALMON
