It's been almost four years since Cotton Jones released their last full-length album, Tall Hours in the Glowstream, but the Maryland combo is back on the road again and setting up intimate shows in seemingly every available living room in the country. The Silverlake Lounge isn't much bigger than most living rooms, which should make Michael Nau's gentle tunes feel even more personal and homespun. His songs range from countrified folk ambles to hazier pop interludes, splitting the difference on “Splitting Dreams,” where his rootsy delivery drifts along on a loopy, sidewinding guitar riff. Much of the music's spectral warmth comes from Nau's keyboardist wife, Whitney McGraw, whose sweet harmonies carry the melodies straight from the farm up into the clouds.
