Jenny & Tyler, Of This I’m Sure (Residence Music/Caroline)
Lady Antebellum dosed up on Coldplay is the bullet rundown on the first LP from this Nashville husband-and-wife duo. But that’s a gross oversimplification, given their songwriting chops, and never mind the corporate-indie bollocks — their wild-hearted side can bust out of the corral on a whim, as heard in the Kings of Leon-like “Song for You,” probably their best shot at heavy sports-bar play. The Mumfords-infused festival-stopper is the balladic, chugging “Beloved One,” and once you get to that mark in the record there’s no denying that Tyler’s decision to forgo a day gig as a tool sales rep was a good one. Whether or not you can deal with a little country, this stuff is built to inspire and embolden any still-viable spirit, loping along its open roads as if it wants to soundtrack every po-faced rom-com for the next five years. You should hope as much. A+
