Yael Meyer, ‘Everything Will Be Alright’ (Kli)

The music of Chile’s Yael Meyer has been heard on trash-TV shows like Private Practice and Drop Dead Diva, but don’t hold that against her. Sweet but not sappy, the cozy English-language pop on her second album embodies artful simplicity, offering refuge from modern anxiety in late-night tracks like “Shed Their Fear” and “Home to Me.” While there’s potential for corny melodrama, her gentle cooing, shaded with tasteful electronica, keeps Everything nicely understated: The toe-tapping “Tea for Two” (not the Broadway chestnut), with its vision of old-age contentment, could melt the coldest cynic.
