While the tunes that comprise this tight, tasty set are credited to the band, it’s likely not a reach to credit leader/bassist/vocalist Heather Newman for the consistently cut-above phrase turning that shows up in each lyric set, given their abundant first-person character.  Showing the same knack here for tasty variation in feel, track-by-track, that Ms. Newman and band demonstrated on 2017’s Burn Me Alive, her sassy, spitfire vocals are back as well and a delight throughout.  Standouts include "She Sure Looks Alot Like Me", "Lonely on Beale" and "His Soul".
