ANALYSIS/OPINION

Tim O’Brien

“Pompadour”

Bluegrass/folk singer Tim O’Brien releases a new disc of folksy tracks on “Pompadour.” Keep careful attention on the title track and the dirge “Whatever Happened to Me” early on the album, while “The Tulips on the Table” is a down-home, banjo-infused tribute to complicated love. “I Gotta Move” and “Ditty Boy Twang” highlight Mr. O’Brien’s Southern-style influences, while “I’m a Mess for You” channels more traditional country sounds. The uptempo “The Water Is Wise” closes out the album with some clapping beats and smiling lyrics.

Mr. O’Brien will be performing at The Hamilton Friday October 30 alongside Old Man Luedecke. Tickets are available by going to Live.TheHamiltonDC.com. Tickets are $17 to $25.
