Nearly a decade after folk-rock duo Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Irion put out their first album together, the husband-and-wife pair have really hit their stride on Wassaic Way, a collection just released in August on Rte 8 Records. Produced by Wilco's Jeff Tweedy and Patrick Sansone, Wassaic Way finds Guthrie and Irion pushing beyond folk. There are loud guitars, there are soundscapes, there's a lushness to it, there's a popness, an edge.   This album is the latest entry in an ongoing creative relationship between the Guthrie family and Wilco. Sarah Lee is the daughter of Arlo Guthrie, and the granddaughter of Woody Guthrie, whose unfinished songs Wilco recorded with Billy Bragg on a pair of Mermaid Avenue albums. Sarah Lee and Johnny performed at  Wilco's Solid Sound Festival in 2011.

Young British quintet The Melodic opens with vibrant folk-pop music that relates as much to the Decemberists as to Paul Simon and Bert Jansch.
