Sarah Borges & The Broken Singles (from the album Loves Middle Name available on )
She is a straight-shooting, tells-it-like-it-is musician. You know when Sarah Borges puts out a record you are going to get an honest dose of rowdy rockers, a contemplative mid-tempo tune or two, and perhaps a ballad. All of that is delivered with a little swagger, a little aggression, and a lot of honesty. Her latest release Loves Middle Name finds her back with her band The Broken Singles delivering hooks galore via uncomplicated rock and roll chops, with a vocal delivery walking the line between punk-rock rough and ballad tender. Like her past work, there are nods to American punk and early R&B that weave themselves into a smart package of swift rock and roll.
“Get as Gone as Gone Can Get” is the Loves Middle Name album ripper, a duet with Broken Single bandmate and album producer, Eric “Roscoe” Ambel on a fun roots rocker of a cut with plenty of chug. ‘Anything that good for me, I don’t like it, as long as it’s good for you, I wanna try it’ from “Let Me Try It,” show Sarah Borges narrative flirting, and her lyrical tease coming with an air of danger, a slight tongue in cheek poke and plenty of caution left by the wayside. You can tell that Sarah Borges has a clock-in/ clock-out approach to her music. She clocks in when the guitar cable plugs into the amp, clocking out a handful of hours later when the last drink is spilled and the last song played. Somewhere during that shift she’s bopped, rocked and rolled all over a stage to the delight of fans who delight over bands like NRBQ, The Blasters or The Runaways. By Bryant Liggett
