CD Review: Fourth Times A Charm For Sara Radle

Sara Radle will be releasing her new solo album on September 14. The title of her fourth solo album is simply titled "Four." Since her previous solo album, Sara has been juggling her work in The Rentals and in Walking Sleep as well as guest spots with the Tokyo Police Club. Sara feels that this album is "like coming back home."

Sara Radle comes right out of the gate with the up-tempo pop sounds of "Fooling Nobody." The song "Baxter Hill" finds Sara in a relaxed country setting as her voice draws similarities to Lisa Loeb. The album features short vocal experiments sprinkled throughout that never fully develop into songs, but tie the album together nicely. "A Reason To Stay" finds a more harmless alternative sound circling around Sara's voice. Sara is very playful on the album with her sound and lyrics as in the songs "Lucy" and "A+K." Sara doesn't stray far from this formula on this latest release, except for the song "Superstar" that carries a pulsating keyboard and finger snapping along with a bit darker lyrics.

Sara Radle new album is available now for pre-order from her website, sararadle.com.
