Troubadour Elvis Costello heads to the American South for his latest effort, reprising the rustic, rootsy approach he adopted way back in 1981 on Almost Blue.

He also teams up again with producer T Bone Burnett, with whom he worked on 1986's King of America and 1989's Spike.

Featuring a clutch of traditional string band players as well as a guest spot by Emmylou Harris on the excellent The Crooked Line, this is an album seeped in country spirit, close harmonies and weaving melodies, though an overused vocal vibrato sometimes distances Costello from the faster material.

Single download: Sulphur to Sugarcane
For those who like: Lyle Lovett, Loudon Wainwright III
