South Carolina duo Shovels & Rope comprises raspy-voiced singer-guitarist Cary Ann Hearst and drummer Michael Trent—a married couple that sounds a little like Bonnie Raitt fronting the White Stripes. Tonight expect a preview of their new album, Swimmin' Time, due in August. Valerie June stirs a healthy dose of soul and gospel into her bluegrass, and recorded her latest album, Pushin' Against a Stone, with Dan Auerbach. Austin song man Alejandro Rose-Garcia kicks things off with intricate, unshowy fingerpicked melodies as Shakey Graves.
