Buck Meek's solo music is disarming and intimate. If you're familiar with his work as the guitarist for Big Thief, that might not come as a surprise. His music is saturated with peculiar, beautiful imagery — a motel with a telephone seashell, two tons of turtle doves, a cottonmouth swallowing its tail. They're pictures painted with country-tinged vocals, begging to be deciphered.

Meek's latest album is called Two Saviors. He opens today's session with an unreleased song — "Beauty Opens Doors" — and plays a few tracks from his latest record. Listen to the full performance via the audio player.
