Kaki King's work has been given a lot of makeovers over the past decade. Her 2003 debut, Everybody Loves You, swam in the high-waisted tides of tricky percussive guitar manipulations, alternately stunning and baffling technical string junkies. And while King's still as engaging as a kind of one-woman acoustic orchestra, her subsequent releases have ranged from minimalist to enormous, culminating with her biggest step yet toward pop with the rockin' 2010 LP Junior. King's sixth studio album, Glow, was just released, and manages to keep a foot in both her past and present, cultivating savage guitar pieces that are augmented by noodling strings, melodic mandolin flourishes, and stirring crescendos. King is, simply, one of the most unique composers making music today, and your bows at her feet will be rewarded. RYAN J. PRADO
