Sarah Borges and the Broken Singles - Undiscovered Diamonds

Probably about a month ago, I was talking with Rich over at Modern Acoustic (figuratively speaking that is via e-mail) about Grace Potter and he recommended that I check out another female singer/songwriter by the name of Sarah Borges. So here I am, one month later, with lots of kudos to share with you about Sarah Borges and the Broken Singles' second album Diamonds in the Dark.

The album opens up with The Day We Met, a track that you have to listen to repeatedly while dancing around (unless you don't have a pulse). There are no two ways about it; the song features some catchy gutiar hooks and an equally catchy chorus. The album could end here and it would be worth the price. But luckily, it doesn't. The album is an eclectic feeling mix of some plain out twangy Nashville feeling tunes (even though Sarah is from Boston) as well as more straight out upbeat indie rock, and everthing inbetween. What's amazing is that Sarah's voice sounds equally at home regardless of what is playing behind her. Try out the following two tracks to see for yourself. Sarah jams on Open Up Your Back Door, a bluesy number that reminds me of The Blues Brothers singing Sweet Home Chicago.
