Hilary York knows how to create radio-friendly tunes without pandering to the audience. Her songs are accessible enough to be played alongside any regular rotation including John Mayer or Jack Johnson, but theyre devoid of any campy riffs or hooks that scream, Put me on the radio! Out of Sight begins with a beachside, surfy guitar strum backing the Austin songstresss deep vocals, which give way to a Spanish-picked bridge that fades back into chorus. And Radio Love unites Yorks romantic alto with Mirah-influenced little girl vocals for a steady, toe-tapping number. See coffee-shop rock at its best today at 10 p.m. Notsuoh, 314 Main.
