New Release Mavis Staples “One True Vine”

How excited were the folks in Low, the Minnesota indie band, when they heard the divine Ms. Staples covered their “Holy Ghost” to lead off this lovely, largely acoustic album (and turned a mopey lament into a gospel slow-burner)? Produced with low-key confidence and spare arrangements by Wilco‘s Jeff Tweedy (who also helmed her 2010 LP), One True Vine shows there isn’t much the ex-Staple Singer can’t make gorgeous and lived-in. Is it too tasteful by half? Maybe, but what does she have to prove? Funkadelic’s “Can You Get to That” gets a fairly orthodox turn, and the Tweedy-penned “Jesus Wept” is folk soul that can’t live without your love. Go for it, Low!
