When COVID-19 forced them off the road, the husband and wife alt-folk duo of Shawn Fisher and Jordyn Jackson hit rewind and decided to give an existing project a fizzy, retro treatment. “Eccentric” is the reimagining of the band’s 2019 release “Concentric” and it’s just the punch in the Serotonin we needed to resuscitate this stagnant season …
