Lucinda Williams

As a rule, you can divide music into three categories—the kind that aims for the head, the kind that aims for the heart and the kind that aims for the hips. Forging two of those connections at once is pretty impressive, but connecting on all three? That’s a rare accomplishment indeed, one that Lucinda Williams manages on her 11th studio album, Down Where The Spirit Meets The Bone (the first release on Lucinda Williams’ own Highway 20 Records label). Over the course of two discs, Williams leaves no emotional crevice left unexplored and pushes herself as a vocalist as well, making the most of both her instrument’s honeyed warmth and its sandpaper-to-the-soul toughness.
