Not so long ago, the Canadian songwriter and singer Basia Bulat went through a difficult breakup. She pulled herself together, wrote a set of acoustic songs, and drove south from Toronto to Louisville, Kentucky. There, she went into the studio with My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James to record her fourth album, "Good Advice." It sounds less like old-timey folk and more like vintage rock --- pulsing with organs, synths, and fuzzed-out electric guitars, all anchored by Bulat's remarkable voice.
