Carrie Rodriguez

And she steps in front of this low-light background with a persona that's often out-and-out sexual. ("What you smilin' at?" Rodriguez sings in "Dirty Leather." "Ain't you touched one of these before?") This has been missing from Americana music for the most part — Lucinda has tended to pick up pen after the fun's over and the relationship has turned sour. Seven Angels on a Bicycle has more than its share of make-out songs like "Big Kiss." Rodriguez doesn't quite have the voice to pull off the sultriness with maximum effect, at least not yet. But she's onto something rootsy and sophisticated at the same time.

Rodriguez has been touring with a trio that should be able to realize a compact version of the instrumentally subtle late-night Americana heard on her album. She comes to the Ark on Thursday, July 5.
