Sarah Borges’s unbridled joy at making music two decades into a storied career comes through loud and clear in her latest long player, aptly titled Love’s Middle Name. Her third studio record with The Broken Singles, Love’s Middle Name is a muscular 10 song cycle that pulses with raw, gritty, unfettered emotion. As the kids like to say: this record has all the feels.

Conduct even a quick Google search, and you’ll find that Sarah has been dubbed everything from an Americana darling, to a roots rocker, to a cowpunk by tastemakers as diverse as The New York Times and Sirius XM Outlaw Country Radio. With this latest release Sarah Borges and the Broken Singles show that all of those titles are well deserved.

 
Sarah and the Broken Singles most recent album, Love’s Middle Name, was produced by Eric “Roscoe” Ambel, a widely respected performer and producer whose credits include the Bottle Rockets and Steve Earle & the Dukes, and was the founding guitarist for none other than Joan Jett & the Blackhearts. Recorded in four sessions with Ambel in the producer’s chair providing banshee-like lead guitar, Love’s Middle Name dispenses with any fussiness. “Roscoe has zero interest in fancy. He likes to capture the beast in its tracks,” Borges says, “That suits me just fine. Life isn’t a dress rehearsal, so let’s get on with it and melt some faces already.” She may be channeling world-weary characters, but it still sounds like she and her band are having a lot of fun laying it all down.
