Richard Thompson Electric Trio

JEFF ROSENBERG
8 pm., Friday May 10 | Sold out.
Aladdin Theater
3017 SE Milwaukie Ave.
 
[FOLK ROCK] On his bold departure of a new album, Richard Thompson embraces dubstep, African polyrhythms, Burroughsian cut-up lyrics and...hell, I’m just kidding, though I wish I weren’t. Instead, Electric sports the same formula as every annual Thompson release: roiling electric guitar (which, admittedly, he still plays like no other) adorning British folk-informed songs, with typically dour vocals delivering typically downbeat lyrics. To a point, it was a signature style. It’s now a tiresome liability. There are some bright moments on the album, but the most honest song’s called “Stuck on the Treadmill.”
