zSean Watkins loves playing with Nickel Creek, make no mistake about that. But the singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist was also happy to be left to his own devices again for What To Fear, his fifth solo album.Watkins employed a slightly different approach to recording the 10 tracks on What To Fear, working both with the California acoustic trio Bee Eaters and a rock-flavored rhythm section of drummer Matt Chamberlain and bassist Mike Elizondo.

Little Windows, the first collaborative album from singer-songwriters Teddy Thompson and Kelly Jones, packs a whole career’s worth of sparkling pop gems and sobering country ballads into a collection that runs just short of 26 minutes. What’s more remarkable, however, is that the LP represents a relatively new partnership, and every one of the songs is original to the project, although any of the album’s 10 tracks could be mistaken for some long-lost sonic nugget from the Fifties or Sixties.
