The music a singer and an acoustic guitar and a few supplemental noises tossed in to give the appearance of being slightly more than less says enough. Hers is the soundtrack of the tasteful fan who makes music because she has to. The voice is dry, but also slightly damp with the enthusiasm and passion of the performer who aches to be heard by someone. Gabi was bound to gather rock-crit adoration covering beloved obscurities by R.E.M., Wilco, Golden Smog, Elvis Costello and Victoria Williams will always win you a heap of ink-stained kisses but deserves wider acknowledgment and acclaim than from Web-surfing cheapskates. Choice cuts: Costello's "Bedlam," in which she replaces the autumnal sneer with a summertime smile; Golden Smog's "Radio King," treated as a love song to a million love songs; and Pato Fu's "Saudade," stripped of its late-night dance-club groove till it sounds like an early-morning lullaby.
