Secret Country + Bobby Bare Jr. + Davey & the Trainwreck

Despite Bobby Bare Jr's long discography, 2010 is shaping up as his banner year. In June, Sugar Hill released Twistable, Turnable Man, a Shel Silverstein tribute album produced by Bare and his father, with a vocal lineup that includes Todd Snider, Black Francis and Andrew Bird. Now, Bare has unveiled A Storm a Tree My Mother’s Head, a handsome solo album that includes contributions from his father (who cowrote two songs with Junior), indie-pop singer David Vandervelde (who coproduced the record) and four fifths of My Morning Jacket, here transformed into Bare’s backing group.
