Darden Smith’s “Love Calling” seamlessly charts romantic byways high (the title track) and low (“I Smell Smoke”). The Austin-based songwriter supports his excellent new collection Friday at Stateside at the Paramount.
“A love theme seems to be going through these songs,” Smith says. “Most of my records are more ‘how you ruined my life,’ but this is more about romance. I went through a period that was really good for a while.”
