With little to promote since 2006’s Time Without Consequence, British-born Scot Alexi Murdoch returns with his wistful, Nick Drake-inspired folk. The intervening years seem a bit hazy—the sometime best-selling artist on hawk-your-own-album site CD Baby contributed a song to Ben Affleck’s 2007 flick Gone Baby Gone, has a cut in Sam Mendes’ upcoming Away We Go, and a track in a Nissan ad (as Wikipedia proudly touts). His official explanation of his absence is that he spent two years in the Himalayas, but there’s no doubt he’ll have much more to explain tonight. With Dawn Landes.
