Air Waves is the rollicking, down-home folk-rock project of Austin-via-New York resident Nicole Schneit. At times a certain warm gruffness in her voice reminds me of tUnE-YaRdS’ Merrill Garbus (in a rangier, rootsier alternative universe). “Waters,” one of two songs from her forthcoming Dungeon Dots featuring pretty, airy backup vocals from Sharon Van Etten, suggests that the two should work together more frequently.
