Characteristically cool New York songwriter Suzanne Vega gigs behind Tales from the Realm of the Queen of Pentacles, her first new LP (aside from a few volumes of back-catalog reworkings) since 2007. It’s a diverse set, ranging from intricate art pop to spare folk; what holds it together is Vega’s still-sharp lyrical command and cool, composed delivery. In the opening slot, another beloved local songsmith, Ari Hest, shows off his warm, dusky voice and knack for a winsome hook.
