Cult singer-songwriter Peter Himmelman can be as biting as Elvis Costello and as tender as Cat Stevens. His sixth album, Skin, revolves around the spiritual journey of a regretful cynic. From the aggressive (”Chaos and Void”) to the plaintive (”Shilo”), it’s as much the rich texture of his Crazy Horse-like band as a newfound faith in love that leads both the album’s alter ego and the listener toward redemption.
