“Live” (So Fair)
At their best, Amy Fairchild’s songs boast an abundance of classic-rock virtues: catchy, organic melodies, muscular rhythms, lyric hooks. And as heard on this terrific live album, she delivers them all in a roots-pop package that nods to the Replacements (“Simple Thing”) as much as Suzanne Vega (“Renee”). That’s a broad swath, but Fairchild connects those disparate influences with her gritty, sultry vocals and her down-to-earth approach that combines the sensibility of a singer-songwriter with the dynamics of a chick rocker.
