Desertdwelling singer/songwriter/indie rocker Lissie makes music for (and probably inspired by) the corridorcity hippie witches and warlocks who stare for hours at the cover of Fleetwood Mac's and wonder what it’d be like to live that kind of tragedy and triumph for real. Science can’t help too much with that yet, at least until we perfect a Macification Machine, but Lissie’s newest (out now on Fat Possum and Columbia) is steeped in the kind of bigsound radio pop that Buckingham and Nicks poured directly into a billion suburban stereos. Some people out there are calling the breakup album of the year, but it’s more like the breakopen album of the year—a set of songs about cracking circumstance in half and (hell yeah!) going your own way.
