Like a day at the carnival that ends with your dog getting hit by a car, John Wesley Harding's The Sound of His Own Voice seems cheery enough at first. But beneath each song's surface of sunny, jangly pop is a story of nostalgia and heartbreak—a coming to terms with a lifetime of sad shit. Harding lives in Pennsylvania, but he jacked Portland's best and brightest for this, his 12th LP. The album features four-fifths of the Decemberists and half of the Minus 5, who are also opening. Scott McCaughey produced the album, and provides sprightly harmonies for sad lyrics, along with Rosanne Cash, John Roderick, and Laura Veirs. REBECCA WILSON
