The Autumn Defense, led by John Sirratt and Pat Sansone (members of Wilco), makes the kind of twangy, slide-guitar-centric sounds that make country music okay. The duo are on tour for their fifth album together, the newly released Fifth, which was made between busy tours with other projects. This seems like a less than ideal way to make a record, but there is a sense of full, bursting expression in these songs, like they couldn't stand being held back any longer. If you're in the mood for some American pop sensibility, get ahold of this lineup, with local folk rockers Melville to round it out. RACHEL MILBAUER
