Vermont's Macaulay Lerman combines a weepy violin, the sonic sense of a barn, a pinch of Leonard Cohen low, creaky voice into the warm and rough-hewn, "Wrong." Sounds like Cassadaga Bright Eyes, Heart of Gold Neil Young, and other ambivalent inheritors of country music. The lyrics are both straightforward and poetic give the song a meditative, non-circular feel. Interested listeners may want to seek out Lerman's other life as a photographer to get the full scope of the artist.
