Cost: $15-$18
CRITIC’S PICK: All Carl “Buffalo” Nichols needs is a battered acoustic guitar and his bellowing baritone voice to deliver stark Delta blues with the authenticity of the folk-blues legends who defined the genre. But on his new album, he adds moderate electronics — synths and beats — to help shift the music to a more contemporary palette. It sounds like a crass move, but in reality those touches are subtle and work well. How far he will continue in this direction is unclear, but for the deep blues to survive, this might be a path worth following. — Hal Horowitz
