I was impressed by and wrote about the last Sarah Borges record. It was fairly straight forward and slightly on the raw side which I liked. I didn’t think she had an outstanding voice or the best songs. But I respected her ballsy presentation of a guitar wielding woman fronted band. The promise from that last record doesn’t seem to have been played out on her latest. The new record is called The Stars Are Out and is due out March 24 on Sugarhill Records.
Perhaps I’m having a jaded, seen it all, heard it all, kind of morning but it just seems like all the passion from the first record has been sucked out and replaced with smoothed and rounded edges. Here’s an atmospheric reverb laced ballad from “The Stars Are Out”. Decide for yourself.
Bonus song from Diamonds In the Dark
