AMERICANA | King Cardinal 

What started out as a solo recording project, King Cardinal founder Brennan Mackey has since fleshed out into a deluxe, five-piece band. The changes came once he pulled a Hail Mary and moved from Chicago and into Denver. King Cardinal calls to mind early Ryan Adams, and flirts with a profane sadness that'll make you smile. There's some cosmic cowboy calamity painting the clouds with the gorgeous lap steel, and there are plenty of roots references handled with reverence. There isn't too much of anything battling for attention, making this music so satisfying.

King Cardinal plays Friday, November 24, at Abilene Bar & Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. 7:30 p.m. $5. abilenebarandlounge.com; kingcardinal.com.
