Jessica Lea Mayfield, T. Hardy Morris, Pinecones

Moving away from the country-tinged alt-pop of Tell Me, 2011’s Dan Auerbach-produced sophomore effort, songwriter Jessica Lea Mayfield went grunge with this year’s Make My Head Sing. It’s a far cry from Mayfield’s early days as a member of her bluegrass-focused family band, but she inhabits the new role with a persuasive power. Drawing fully from ’90s rock influences and joined by husband and bassist Jesse Newport, as well as drummer Matt Martin, Make My Head Sing is a raw, solid collection of “120 Minutes”-esque bummer jams with a hidden but unmistakeable heart. T. Hardy Morris and Pinecones support.
