KT Tunstall w/ Brian Lopez
Sprightly Scottish singer KT Tunstall’s girl-power hit “Suddenly I See” was an inescapable phenomenon during the mid-’00s, used to promote everything from movies, TV shows and video games to Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid, making Tunstall a star by osmosis. There’s more to her than that sugary hit, though. Tunstall’s latest album, Invisible Empire // Crescent Moon, marks a shift from perky indie-pop sounds to more melancholy, acoustic terrain. That shift was inspired by real-life difficulties, including a recent divorce and the passing of her father. This may be her most heartfelt album yet.
