Edgefield

I've never been a huge fan of Ray LaMontagne, the New England singer/songwriter who made a splash in 2004 with the shuffling "Trouble," a mom-and-dad-in-the-bedroom groover that made full use of LaMontagne's acrobatic, androgynous singing. It seems as though LaMontagne finally got as bored with himself as I was, as his new album Supernova is a wonderful, kaleidoscopic pop record of surprisingly deep dimensions. Among the many welcome changes are the hints of freakbeat, Tropicália, and '60s acid rock that transform "Lavender" and the title track into some of this year's best and weirdest pop. LaMontagne's current backing band includes Portland's own Swiss army knife of a musician, Dave Depper, and they sounded fucking tight on Letterman, which makes tonight's show at Edgefield a very promising prospect—although they'll probably need to play "Trouble" at some point.
