Masts of Manhatta

"I'd like to be my own best friend/Turns out there's no reciprocal feelings," sings Tracy Bonham. A relatable sentiment, but there's no adolescent angst on her fourth disc, a gorgeous celebration of adult love. Manhatta has a pastoral, jazzy pulse and is full of crafty details ­ the "Superfly" bass line driving "Big Red Heart," or the way she sings, "You make my heart go/Like Gogol Bordello." Whether she's puzzling out marriage or making out in an AMC Hornet, Bonham has definitely hit her groove.
