[Nashville Cream] This Week in Fresh Tracks

by Stephen Trageser

Bui's self-titled LP hits the racks Sept. 30, and it lands right in the sweet spot of contemporary Americana. The first half, which includes these two tracks, leans more towards trad country and R&B, while the second side stretches out into jazz and vintage pop — all expertly played by a boss crop of locals. You've got several chances coming up to hear Bui in person, including at Fond Object Sept. 25 during JP Harris' Sunday Morning Coming Down AmericanaFest wrap-up, and again on Oct. 5 at Charlie Bob's with Mom and Dad. (Bonus: If you buy the vinyl copy, it will have never touched a computer, having been recorded to tape with Andrija Tokic at his all-analog studio The Bomb Shelter.)
