While some of us indulge in cigarettes, alcohol or even chocolate for comfort, Todd Snider finds solace in strumming his faithful acoustic guitar and making up songs. With his latest endeavor, New Connection, Snider's songwriting links his past with his present and offers him a new connection to his future. Twelve of the extraordinary thirteen tracks on the album were written or co-written by Snider. For the first time Snider worked with noted producer R.S. Field (Sonny Landreth, Alison Moorer, Webb Wilder) at the controls. New Connection is undeniably inspired. The album stretches from the energetic groove of the title track, to the tongue-in-cheek fun of "Statistician's Blues" to the lonesome ache of "Close Enough To You" and the longing for home in "Rose City." Within all of his compositions, Snider proves to be an insightful yarnspinner who dishes out life's meaningful victories and sorrows in three-minute stories. On New Connection Snider reconnects with his hometown Portland, Oregon, a place he left seventeen years ago, and celebrates the union with the love of his life.

Muze PNote New Connection -- Todd Snider's fifth album and the second for John Prine's Oh Boy label -- finds the singer riding atop a warm band featuring Jason Wilber and David Jacques (both of Prine's touring unit), Paul Griffith, and Will Kimbrough. Like Kevn Kinney, Snider's voice alternates between a drawl and a scratch, occasionally dropping into Jim White-like whispers. It is in these cracks that Snider finds a wry strength, which he hangs on his almost traditional singer/songwriter wares. There are humorous tunes -- "Vinyl Records," "Beer Run," and "Statistician's Blues" -- but they're rarely anything more than cute. "Broke," meanwhile, sounds like a Nashville version of Lou Reed's "Goodnight Ladies." Snider gets a few elegiac beauties into the mix, too, including the subtly produced "Easy" and the almost heartbreaking "Class of 85." These are fine songs. Prine takes a guest turn on his own "Crooked Piece of Time," which fits in with the rest of the record almost too well. ~ Jesse Jarnow
