Mike Doughty’s recent move to Memphis may have inspired the self-described “lonesome country” aspect of The Heart Watches While the Brain Burns. The album’s trap beats, however, speak to the influence of his longtime collaboration with New York hip-hop producer Good Goose, who contributed remotely via the Internet. Always willing to explore (see 2015’s biblical rock opera Revelation), the former frontman for Soul Coughing delivers what some are calling his most interesting work to date.

Thursday, January 12. $17-20, 8pm. The Southern Café and Music Hall, 103 S. First St. 977-5590.
