I've liked this cat since he was a Push Star and always dug the acoustic strum attack on his electric guitar. Chris Trapper is all about the song, not its trappings. He is there to serve these little storied gems with whatever it is they cry for — even Dixieland which he brought to the fore a few albums back. "Technicolor," Trapper's newest release still skates the edge between melancholy and dreamer with the instrumentation a little more dressed up. But don't sweat it: Trapper is still in there ... so are the songs.

Chris Trapper plays Friday, May 22, at Downstairs Cabaret Theatre, 20 Windsor Street. 8 p.m. $20.;
