Editors' Notes Some of the most evocative tales are told with little more than the voice and a piano or acoustic guitar. Today's best singer-songwriter fare—whether emotive and pop-leaning or rustic and folky—doesn't need heavy production and layers of instrumentation to make an impact. Our editors regularly refresh this playlist. If you like a track, add it to your library.
