Inquisitive minds curious as to what married musicians might talk about, maybe even fight about, in the course of making a living could do worse than give the Mastersons’ third album, Transient Lullaby (Red House), a few spins. Such matters may not make for polite dinner conversation, but Chris Masterson and Eleanor Whitmore have a gift for illuminating the unassuming virtues of road life while softening harsher truths such as, in the words of one title, “This Isn’t How It Was Supposed to Go.” As on their previous two albums, Birds Fly South and Good Luck Charm, the couple’s songs emit an aura of low-key, precise Americana that here often glows with the songs’ late-night origins. In the course of the Mastersons’ Texas dates of the tour, the currently L.A.-based duo will also appear at a Cactus Music in-store at 3 p.m. Sunday, May 21.
