Building on the promise of earlier studio efforts, New York songwriter Gabriel Kahane's new record, The Ambassador, breathes new life into the concept album. Kahane famously wrote a cycle of songs based on actual Craigslist ads in 2006, dubbed Craigslistlieder. With The Ambassador, Kahane pays homage to Los Angeles by spinning tales of decadence, love, and greed throughout the city over periods of time from the 1940s to the present, with each song titled after a specific address in LA. Kahane's chameleonic abilities suit the recording well, enabling him to duck in and out of character, creating a quilt-like warmth of stories that have the power to move you. RYAN J. PRADO
