Sarah Slean
Day One
(Warner)
Sarah Slean’s sophomore major-label offering is a much more diverse picture of her sweeping, eclectic palate. The piano takes a back seat, and Slean adopts a grittier, guitar and drum machine-based production aesthetic, but still maintains the rollicking cabaret feel of Night Bugs. Despite occasional forays into darker subject matter, this is still a fine example of what Slean does best: heartfelt, emotional, dramatic pop music, buoyed as always by her airy, tremulous voice.
