Mineral

ALT-POP

On his last album with the Ferdinandos, 2004’s underappreciated While the Music Lasts, Jesse Harris emerged as the male answer to Norah Jones, with a little help from the Grammy queen herself. Here the singer-songwriter and guitarist goes it without Jones (or the Ferdinandos), but there are still plenty of Norah-like nuances—as well as shades of Paul Simon—on this intimate affair. The elemental Mineral finds Harris working in a trio setting with keyboards and percussion, creating a soothing mood on cuts like the lilting “No More”—perfect for breaking out the bath crystals.
