Listening Log 

Originally synonymous with a very particular branch of alt-country, Richard Buckner's singer-songwriter model has since morphed into rustic pop-rock leaning more toward the adult-contemporary end of indie rock. Meadow is a pleasantly unobtrusive collection of personal, palatable Americana that sounds something like a hypothetical lost (i.e., shelved by a major label) "weird" Tom Petty album. In the end, it beats listening to the criminally overrated Steve Earle. Appropriate for house dusting on a Sunday morning, its lack of memorable songs won't have you interrupting work to hit replay, and it'll be over before you realize an entire album just played through. ("Town," "Numbered," "Spell") -- Andrew Earles

Grade: C+

Richard Buckner plays Proud Larry's in Oxford Wednesday, August 30th. Showtime is 8 p.m.
