Picks and Pans Review: Worth a Listen
•MTV Unplugged v2.0 Dashboard Confessional (Vagrant)
Chris Carrabba’s emo outfit, which was already largely acoustic, performs lovely live versions of songs such as “Hands Down.”
•Inertia The Exies (Virgin)
Hushed harmonies and supercharged sonic blasts make this SoCal quartet’s debut a shimmering pop-rock throwback.
•A Love Supreme John Coltrane (Impulse)
This two-CD repackaging of the sax legend’s 1965 masterpiece includes the original suite, a stunning live set and a lost session.
