Jesse Marchant, who used to release music as JBM, is a disconsolate French-Canadian whose wintry, quietly intense songs feel like the soundtrack to emotional desolation. Marchant casts his weary, weathered voice against direct, graceful chord progressions and surrounds it with elegantly spare arrangements. Marchant’s songwriting is weighty and steeped in plaintive gravity; lines like “Where were you/When all of this was fucked and on its side,” from the sedate “Words Underlined,” land like haymakers. These sad songs soar. —Patrick Wall
