Suzanne Vega & Duncan Sheik


Here’s a solid double-bill pairing two New York City songwriters doing fine work in a retrospective vein. Vega recently released the third volume in her Close-Up series, with stripped-down versions of her tunes about “states of being.” (Previous editions have centered on “love songs” and “people and places.”) And last year Sheik put out an unusually thoughtful covers album on which he remade such ’80s-era hits as New Order’s “Love Vigilantes” and “Hold Me Now” by the Thompson Twins.
