Need some Christmas woe in your springtime? If so, catch up with Home, the third (as far as we can tell) record by the Los Angeles-based Jeremiah Sammartano and his Delta Blues/Folk/Alt-Country outfit The Red Eyes. On that 2012 full-length, you can experience not one but two odes to winter misery with “Xmas Morn” and “Townes, Jesus and Me.”
Jeremiah and the Red Eyes do implement lots of wounded-soul Folk clichés into their work, but the seven-piece is usually so sincere about and deft with the execution that it feels OK to grant them leeway.
Jeremiah and the Red Eyes perform 10 p.m. Thursday, March 21 at the Southgate House Revival in Newport. Free. southgatehouse.com.
