Listening to Caleb Klauder’s latest recording is like entering some eternal country-swing tavern in the sky. The Portland singer (by way of Orcas Island and Georgia) has a sandpapery voice so warm and natural, it fits its mandolin-fiddle-guitar setting like well-worn denim. Klauder’s original tunes sit seamlessly next to such classics as “Satisfied Man,” all delivered with a pure homespun sound that’s a perfect blend of the rough and the smooth.

‘The Big Lebowski’
The Dude abides. Washington Post critic Ann Hornaday may have no love for “The Big Lebowski” — she ranked it number 11 on a list published this week in The Seattle Times of 15 Coen brothers films — but our readers chose it as their favorite in an online poll. At presstime, “Lebowski” had 29 percent of the vote, followed by “Fargo” (21 percent) and “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” (17 percent).
