Indie rock doesn't get much more dramatic than Austin's Shearwater, a band that channels Scott Walker–esque intensity into stylish yet commanding tunes. Here, the group supports a 2013 covers effort, Fellow Travelers, with help from the similarly eccentric Death Vessel—a Rhode Island art-folk crew headed by helium-voiced Joel Thibodeau—and Jesca Hoop, a Cali singer-songsmith whose arresting output suggests a mélange of Joanna Newsom and Tori Amos.
