Jolie Holland will be performing songs from her latest album, Pint of Blood. From the electrified sidling ode of “Gold and Yellow,” through the outright violence of “Remember,” to “Rex’s Blues”-a devastating Townes Van Zandt rendition, Holland’s inspirations and evolving aesthetic ring bell-clear in every song. Listeners will find their own lost parts in her voice, which captures the unnamable more succinctly than ever. She croons of the hardest kinds of love and most aching choices, along with the light and lovely. These ten songs are rich with moments to savor —evoking memories of moonlit fields, past lovers, and the childhood dream of summer. As always, her lyrics speak transparent and true as tendermirrors themselves. The mermaid adorning the album’s cover is an apt symbol for Holland’s work: a magical coupling of disparate tones. Pint of Blood is, as that old book says, as wise as serpents and as innocent as doves. An evening of music you will not want to miss!
