Don’t pick up Austin singer Amy Cook’s “Let the Light In” expecting to hear much of the sound of high-profile producer Alejandro Escovedo — aside from an eleventh-hour, subtle guest vocal on “Moonrise,” a haunting tune that’s one of the album’s best, Escovedo’s production is largely clean and invisible.

It’s ironic that the kickoff track to Alejandro Escovedo’s new album, “Street Songs of Love,” is entitled “Anchor,” because it lifts off with the same buoyant, guitar-fueled energy that fueled the best tracks on this album’s predecessor, 2008’s “Real Animal.” Indeed, this album is a nearly seamless segue from that earlier and justifiably acclaimed effort – same producer (Tony Visconti, who has twiddled the knobs for the likes of U2 and David Bowie), same hard-charging band (mostly) and recorded in the same out-of-the-way Kentucky studio.
