Songwriter Jenn Rawling has crafted a stirring album with her debut, Take the Air, which also features partner Basho Parks on violin and viola. Take the Air initially seems like your typical, folk-flecked collection of string-driven things—not exactly a rare commodity in this strummy town—but Rawling's songs contain striking details, offering intricate shadows within acoustic, open-faced honesty. It's hard to ignore the simple power of songs like "Oh Delia" and "Big Old Lake," which sound like lost folk standards, bearing what seem like decades of accumulated joy and melancholy on their bones. Boasting immaculate musicianship and clean, unobtrusive production, Rawling and Parks' Take the Air is a record that won't wear out its welcome anytime soon. NED LANNAMANN
