Tom Maxwell CD release, Justin Robinson & the Mary Annettes

When: Fri., June 10, 8 p.m. 2011

It's easy to lose sight of Tom Maxwell's talent. Though he wrote the Squirrel Nut Zippers' biggest song and many other fine cuts, his departure was acrimonious, and he's released but a single solo album since, 2000's middling Samsara. He's played out periodically, but it takes something like Kingdom Come to remind us of just how good he is. This eclectic 14-track album shines completely, from his irreverent country ode about a shoplifted Piggly Wiggly, "Ham," to the sophisticated baroque mien of "Fuck It," from the supple swing of "So High" to the lively garage-abilly rave-up of "Jump Over Here and Love Me." This is a witty, masterful tour de force deserving of re-recognition. With Justin Robinson & the Mary Annettes. —Chris Parker
