CRITIC’S PICK: Partner Daryl Hall has crafted a substantial solo career generally mirroring his commercial work with Oates, but the latter hasn’t quite cracked that code yet. It’s not for lack of trying. On his most recent set, 2018’s rustic Arkansas, Oates tackles traditional blues from John Hurt and Blind Blake, sounding like he has been an acoustic folk/bluesman his entire career. He’ll toss in some stripped down “Maneater” hits just to placate H&O fans, but the authentic rural music of his new album is just as enticing, arguably more so. - Hal Horowitz
