Concert preview: Sarah Borges attempts to conquer the FM dial with polished Radio Sweetheart

From the July 3, 2014 edition

The Massachusetts singer/songwriter titled her most recent album Radio Sweetheart, and she doesn’t shy from the label on polished, open-armed tunes like “Girl with a Bow,” coming across like a musician determined to conquer the FM dial.

While the music itself might be slick, Borges doesn’t refrain from exploring knottier issues, and the pain she expresses on bluesy slow-burners like “Think of What You’ve Done” reveal bruises beneath the shiny surface.

Girls, Guns and Glory also performs.
