Lou Reed said that pop music should strive to cover adult subject matter, because who wanted to always listen to the same stuff they liked when they were 15? Gigi Dover and the Big Love take Reed’s dictum to heart. In a powerful alto that suggests a funky Joan Baez, Dover sings of navigating life with joy and equanimity. Her music crackles with exuberance and poise, a mix of jazzy chords, gypsy swing and electric guitar filtered through a soulful southern sensibility.
