With a voice that's weathered but still wide open, Alejandro Escovedo remains one of the true rock & roll poets of Austin -- and of America.

Escovedo calls his most recent album, Street Songs of Love, a collection of "songs of love," making a point to distinguish them from "love songs." He's imagining different ways of experiencing love, all the varieties of connections that happen between people, places and even songs themselves.

For this Live at KDHX session, he takes listeners back to the acoustic origin of the songs, performing with just his Sensitive Boys guitarist David Pulkingham at his side. On "Tender Heart," the two challenge each other with their guitars, and then converse more intimately on the tingling "Down in the Bowery," a song Escovedo wrote for his son. Finally, the duo launch into "Anchor," a signature Escovedo anthem, on which he declares, "I'm in love with love, and it broke me in two." That line rings true, and yet the songwriter has rarely sounded so whole.

Alejandro Escovedo visited St. Louis for a concert at the Old Rock House on June 5.
