ALEJANDRO ESCOVEDO “Street Songs of Love” lives up to the direct monosyllables of its title, then transcends them. It’s a set of 12 midtempo, clear-cut, guitar-driven songs and a closing instrumental, usually with just three or four chords, in the style that was once mainstream and is now called classic rock. All the lyrics have something to do with love, as Mr. Escovedo sings and shouts, in his thick, earthy voice, about lust, devotion, jealousy, obsession, parental affection and higher purpose. “You gotta have faith in the one you love/You gotta have faith in the mystery above,” he hollers in “Faith,” with one of his fans, Bruce Springsteen belting alongside him.
