As Boy Scouts, Oakland-based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Taylor Vick makes the kind of music that hits like good advice from a beloved friend. It’s generously warm and inviting, built atop her open, searching voice, but it doesn’t shy away from tough emotional truths. Like Lomelda’s secular hymns and Hop Along’s energetic kiss-offs, Vick’s songs survey the damage that can come from loving other people with curiosity and grace. Her new album, Free Company (ANTI-), is her most vital and incisive work yet, a stunningly tuneful rumination on heartbreak and loss that is always galloping toward the horizon.
