iTunes Review

The son of a Nashville country star, Bare Jr. is more than a little rock n' roll himself. He recorded with an indie-rock band that carried his name in the '90s, but his more recent work suggests he's finally found the appropriate setting for his wise-acre demeanor. His voice sacrifices pitch for a wired emotionalism that conjures up Paul Westerberg in a cowboy hat, and he's just as likely to crack a joke as he is to tug at a heartstring. (He covers "Things I Didn't Say" by Shel Silverstein, a legendary songwriter who also balanced humor with pathos.) "Valentine," a duet with Will Oldham, ambles with a frat-rock band in tow, horns blaring in raucous chaos while he opens his heart. "The Terrible Sunrise" is a sparsely picked acoustic tune where Bare sounds as if he's singing from the bottom of a well. "Visit Me In Music City," written with his dad, echoes with a lonesome musician's will to live. Bare Jr. may be young and feisty, but he road-worn all the same.

Bobby Bare, Jr. may have begun his career when he was eight years old by the side of his dad, but as a grownup he's carved out a respectable niche with music that falls somewhere between hard rock, roots rock, indie rock, and alt-country. Bobby Bare, Jr. was born on June 28, 1966 in Nashville, Tennessee; his father was the successful country singer Bobby Bare, who'd scored hits with the songs "Detroit City," "500 Miles," and "Streets of Baltimore," among many others. The Bare family lived just outside...
