Elbow

Emotional turmoil doesn’t always makes for great art. But with Elbow’s “The Take Off and Landing of Everything,” it definitely didn’t hurt. While making the acclaimed alt-rockers’ new record, Guy Garvey’s long-term relationship with writer Emma Unsworth fell apart, spurring some rewrites from the husky-voiced frontman. Though not entirely a breakup record, the former Mercury Prize winners’ latest broods-so-good one minute and rides a reflective, upbeat mood the next. Six albums in, the indie-rock elder statesmen still got it. Former Czars frontman John Grant opens. Michael Rietmulder
