Terry Klein: Good Luck Take Care [Terry Klein Music, 2022]
Pragmatic g-g-b-d propels Bostonite-turned-Austinite's wide-ranging lyrics over the top when they provide the locomotion that the road-dogging opener and its child-rearing follow-up may not even need. Sadly, the metaphorical slow ones about salt and a goldfinch that follow close by need more than that. But then come five story songs that aren't really fast enough but clever or felt enough as well. Clever: "Such a Town." Felt: "Salinas"/"The Woman Who Was Lost in the Flood," which I bet he intended as a sequence.
