Almost 30 years before he was playing acoustic sets with his current outfit, musician/heartbreaker Lloyd Cole made a name for himself with his hyper-literate jangle-pop band, Lloyd Cole And The Commotions. When the Glasgow band called it quits in 1989, he emigrated stateside to release a number of acclaimed solo records. Today, Cole continues to put out material that he plays alongside his older, post-punkier songs. His newest album, Broken Record, preserves his New Wave university-boy charm in songs like “Oh Geneviève,” but this time with a strong bluegrass influence. Folk fans and ’80s anglophiles can finally hug each other with sincerity.
