Ray Lamontagne

On his fifth album, cult hero Ray LaMontagne has become more sonically ambitious, thanks, in part, to hipster producer Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys. The music on “Supernova” seems brighter and fuller, more accessible and more electric. But it is still strikingly nostalgic, with the rustic singer/songwriter seemingly worshipping at the altar of Van Morrison. How this new stuff fits with LaMontagne’s earlier pastoral acoustic tunes remains to be seen. Opening are Hamilton Leithauser, frontman for the Walkmen, and the Belle Brigade, a brother-and-sister pop duo whose grandfather is Oscar-winning soundtrack lion John Williams. Jon Bream
