Ryan Joseph Anderson -- The Weaver's Broom

If you check out one track on Ryan Joseph Anderson's new album, listen to "When the Bees Went Mad." It's truly the standout of an accomplished album: it's the kind of tune that makes you sit up and listen -- first for its musical distinction, and second for its inventive lyrics.

Anderson's voice belongs to the consummate folk singer: warm, mellow, and inviting. You can't resist letting it take you where it will. And this album takes you lots of places. The title track begins its life as a simple song but sweeps you down the Rhine and into the sea. You'd have to be a monster not to be moved by "Crooked Heart, my personal favorite on the album. The Weaver's Broom is a truly well-crafted album and is a strong contender for best album of the year thus far.
