Smart Bets: The Honeycutters

Local Americana outfit (really, more country than alt-county) The Honeycutters return with sophomore album, When Bitter Met Sweet. The band is helmed by singer-songwriter Amanda Platt and guitarist Peter James. Expect more of what made the Honeycutters' debut, Irene, so great: Solid, straightforward musicianship, grounded-yet-touching songwriting, shades of longing and familiarity, mournful pedal steel and delicate mandolin. "You won't even know I wrote this song for you," Platt sings on “90 Miles (The Tennessee Song),” a song anyone would be happy to have written for them. The Honeycutters hold a CD- release party at The Grey Eagle on Saturday, May 5. Moses Atwood opens. 9 p.m., $8 in advance or $10 day of show. http://www.thegreyeagle.com.
