“You get discouraged, don’t you, girl? It’s your brother’s world for a while longer,” Brandi Carlile confides consolingly on “The Joke,” from her sixth album, By the Way, I Forgive You. “I have been to the movies, I’ve seen how it ends, and the joke’s on them.” Co-produced by Dave Cobb and Shooter Jennings, the record is a folk-country-pop declaration of support for those with big hearts and tolerant minds. The Seattle singer-guitarist’s empathy extends to an unknown murder victim (“Fulton County Jane Doe”), a suicidal drug addict (“Sugartooth”), lonely people in restaurants (“Party of One”) and an unhappy ex-lover (“Every Time I Hear That Song”). Carlile also muses about bittersweet family ties (“Most of All”) and what it’s like as a gay parent (“The Mother”).
