Chris Johnson, “Vetin on Five”

Until Janson’s radio number 1, “Done,” is a toe-tapping, irreverent to skip time and kick at a one-week interval of drinking. When he sings, he is “waitin ‘” at five, to start at six.

Velon Payne, Blue Eyes, The Harlot, The Cure, The Pusher and Me

Payne earnestly comes from his country bonfire: his mother is country singer Sammy Smith and his father, Jody Payne, plays Willie Nelson, while the name Waylon Jennings was his godfather. All of those influences can be seen as Payne’s first full album in 16 years, but the suffering and redemption he seeks on these songs is all his own. Payne has no interest in hiding the truth of the confessional tenure, no matter how shady (eg the character on “Dangerous Criminals” or the surrealist dreamer on the waltz “Old Blue Eyes.” (A line in the album tune Takes its title from). Cinematic and compelling.
